I Heart Rocks

My mom and cousin have been collecting heart-shaped rocks for years now.  It has turned into a sort of competition to see who can find the best ones.  My brother even got involved and found a heart-shaped rock near the Blarney Stone in Ireland and brought it home to my mom.  I think it was one of the best gifts she has ever gotten.  I went home last weekend and saw my mom has finally displayed her findings.  Who would have thought something so simple as a rock, could look so beautiful as a decoration in her home.  She has them scattered throughout in small porcelain bowls and near the entrance of our home.  They finally convinced me to jump on the bandwagon and keep my eyes peeled for heart rocks. 

Walker Art Center Collection

If you are in the Minneapolis area, make sure you take the time to check out the Walker Art Center’s current collection,  “From Here to There: Alec Soth’s America”. It is a unique experience to walk through the photographs taken by a Minnesota native.  Some will definitely shock you, and you might even notice some locations near your home.   Overall, a very thought-provoking exhibit.

Pink Bathroom

I love love this feminine bathroom.  The pink is the perfect shade to compliment the white floor, sink and exquisite mirror.  I have had my eye on a similar mirror at Pier 1, but this one is just magnificent.  I love how everything else in the room is simple, as the mirror is the focal point.  I’m keeping this photo in the file for my future home.
