Inspiration: Spring Flowers

I love taking photos of nature. Here are a couple of my favorite flower shots from my own collection:


Inspiration: St. Patrick's Day

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
-- Irish Blessing

Artist Spotlight: James Carrington

James Carrington's "Ache" played in the background of a montage on a TV show I was watching recently and I had to find it.


Friday Find: "Love Story" Rose Bowl

"Love Story" Rose Bowl, Mikasa, $49.99

Inspiration: Legos!

We love Legos!

We give sets and accessories as gifts to all my nephews (and occasionally my husband!) One of my nephews, Canaan turned 6 today. So in his honor, today's inspirational feature is all about Legos!

Brickipedia is a great resource to find out more about the sets of both today and years gone by.

My personal favorite set out now is the one on the left. Unfortunately for me, it is quite costly ($299.99 at Amazon!), so I will not be adding it to our collection anytime soon!

This is a long post since there were so many great Lego art photos. Please note that per the usual "Inspiration" format, the photographer/graphic artist is listed underneath the photo. The person listed is not necessarily the artist of the brick sculpture itself. For more information, visit the photographer/graphic artist's photo stream.
