Happy Friday + Cake Toppers

I am signing off for the weekend but before I go I wish you all a wonderful time with your friends and family. It's my last weekend in India and I'll try to make the most of it. My heart hurts with the thought of leaving my home, my family and friends behind, again. But I cheer myself up with the hope that I'll soon be coming back to everything I cherish and am proud of. This weekend is going to be a busy one and I am nervous about the coming week. I have the whole house to pack, thank God I have friends who have taken a couple days off to give a hand with the packing. Thanks for listening. It feels great to know that you are there with me everyday. Take care of yourself and have a great weekend!

{On The Rooftop}

This owl structure can still be found on the roof top of the Rotulos Roura Company building in Barcelona. It was an advert for a neon lighting company and used to be illuminated, but not any more. I find this image striking and the photographer has done an amazing job in capturing the great colors.

Paige Newton + Leah Duncan

I really love Leah Duncan's work and was thrilled to see her products shots from the recent photo shoot with Paige Newton, here. The outdoor setting is stunning, and I think the surrounding blends perfectly with the colors of Leah's products. Leah is currently working with ceramics and planning to work with Paige in the future. Stop by her store, if you wish to shop for her tea towel, stationery and prints.

If your are not ready to go without tights and a sweater, yet, then I am sure you would too like these owl screen printed tights.

Giuseppe Zanotti Designs

Giuseppe Zanotti is a celebrated Italian shoe designer whose collection has something for everybody. Even for owl lovers! I was browsing through his collection online and came across not one but two owl designs. Yay!

His creations are true to his initial inspirations, where art and music are essential feelings to be turned into style for our feet… feet that Zanotti does not want to cover with models, but rather to adorn out of regard for a woman’s beauty and for the world revolving around her.
