Cuisine

"A party without cake is just a meeting" - Julia Child

I simply adore how much of life within the realms of holidays, time with family and friends centers around food and wine.  When I was in college in Colorado I went to the grocer daily to get the freshest ingredients for my dinner.  Here in the South that is a tad more difficult to do, but being able to share experiences with loved ones over conversations at a dining table has yet to be far exceeded by much of anything else.  Here's my 17 Trinkets to lovely cuisine that inspires an appetite, and to this I say, Salute!

Onward

So apparently I have a thing for stairways.  Something about being able to look back at where life has taken you, and looking forward holding on to wishes and dreams.  In a very real and tangible way our steps matter.  Stairways are such wonderful physical things to look at and see where we'll be headed to next.  Here's to higher elevations and feelings of being out of breath with where life takes you...and here are my 17 Trinkets.  As Elizabeth Gilbert always signs off - Onward.

Oldies + Goodies

There's just something about flipping through photos when the style was at it's peak, en vogue as they'd say.  I adore looking back over the creative work of the fashion world, the colors, the cuts, the hairstyles.  All so charming for it's time, so here begins my 17 photographs of Oldies + Goodies:

Colors of Agua

 

transform • /tran(t)s’fôrm/

The steady flow of a river 

carves a canyon.

You trickled through me - 

courageous, independent.

I, all solid. You, all liquid.

You never asked me to change,

but I found my surface etched.

A valley in me,

one pebble carried off at a time.

Where I was flat, I am now steep,

and when they stand at my edge,

the congratulate me 

on the space you opened.

~ Ashley Buzzy McHugh

B&W

There's just something about the classic nature of a thing, isn't there? Black and White photographs show a sense of past, while adding their own sense of glimmering sparks of the present day. Here's my 17 Trinkets in B&W

Le Ballet

The foundation of all other dances.  The most elegant form, beginning with basics on the barre and moving through the ranks to the professionals this type of expression does not disappoint with theatrical drama, music and costumes. It's always fascinated me, people who dedicate their lives to this craft.  These 17 Trinkets are dedicated to the people who work tirelessly to bring us some of the best forms of art we have in this world: dance.

Textures

In photographs if textures are captured correctly they show up phenomenally, the depth, the light, the raw essence of time -whether it was created centuries ago or aged by nature itself.  These are some of my top favorites, welcome to my 17 Trinkets:

Ultra Violet

Pantone's color of 2018 came sweeping in with the shade of Ultra Violet.  I am in love with the grand feel of the color and how it can relate to everyday life.  We've seen Ultra Violet for years, but I can honestly say I haven't quite stopped to notice the depth of it til now.  Here are 17 of my Trinkets to show my interpretation of the hue:
