I Heart Art: Lara Harwood

February 27, 2012 | Art

Morning all!

With only one week until I fly home to finish preparing for our wedding, I’m starting to feel like most brides I’ve spoken to a month out from their weddings – stressed. Somehow my to-do list is still growing with funny little jobs that keep cropping up out of the blue. I look forward to do the day that the list starts getting smaller, which probably won’t be until the actual wedding day! Oh honeymoon, you will be cherished.

Anyhow, enough whining. I am here this morning to show you something lovely and happy and stress-free!

Check out these gorgeous artworks by Lara Harwood, don’t they make you happy? They make me happy.. especially these first two. They make me want to throw a confetti party!

I Heart Art: Pin Up

January 27, 2012 | Art

There’s just something about Pin Up Girls that I find completely fascinating and fabulous.. and that was before I came across these before-and-afters on Miss Mabiel! Turns out these symbols of fabulous feminine perfection and actually just normal people :)

I’ve left out some of the more ‘revealing’ ones, but you can see a lot more over here.

I Heart Art: Fireflies

January 10, 2012 | Art

Who’s with me in saying that fireflies are pretty darn cool? I’m pretty much terrified of most kinds of insects, but somehow the glowing behind of these little critters makes them endearing… not to mention these incredible long exposure photos taken of fireflies in Japan. Like.. wow.

I Heart Art: Deer Deer

December 8, 2011 | Art

If you can believe it, these stunning photos were taken by Emmy Lee.. a talented photographer who’s still in high school. Like, wow. I can’t really remember specifics of what I was doing when I was in high school, but it certainly wasn’t taking spectacular self-portraits with the adorable little deer that wandered into my life… shame really!
