My Anthropologie...Oh how I love thee! Your magazine and stores inspire my creativity and talents so... I find great happiness and joy when your catalog arrives in my mailbox. I secretly find myself setting aside time to soak in the bath while scouring the pages of your book for treasures and inspiration. The above mosaic is my personal photography collage "Ode de Anthropologie"... The chandelier was created with this and thats-antique crystals, old perfume bottles, early 1900s skeleton keys, mens eyewear, old clock faces, along with an old souvenir eiffel tower and bits n pieces of treasures from the past.
How do you find pleasure and creative inspiration from the pages of Anthropologie... Is it in your wardrobe, your homes decor, or simply a fantasy of sorts floating around in your mind? xo, Alys

The past six months have been really tough for me and it seems like in times like these friends matter most. I took these pictures of my daughter Aysha and her friend the past weekend. I love the emotion I was able to capture between these two girls. A best friend is someone you can tell all your secrets to, and someone that is there to listen to you in both the good times and the hard. My best friend can bring me up when I am down and she even makes me believe my butt is not as big as it really is! She is the light at the end of the tunnel some days, and always good for a great laugh. She never makes me feel bad about my decisions, even if they don't make much sense, some how she can always point out the good in all situations. She believes in me and inspires me to be a better person. This post is dedicated to Kathy... Thank you for always being the best friend a girl could ever ask for! To all the best friends out there...xo,Alys

For easter this year my daughter Aysha and I decided to color coffee filters instead of eggs. I was cleaning out my cupboards and decided instead of trashing the old filters that no longer fit our coffee pot we would come up with a creative idea for them. First we tie-died the filters with food coloring and then let them dry over night. While slightly damp we twisted each filter into a beautiful flower shape. After twisting over 800 filters and filling my bed up with beautiful pastel roses our mission was not complete! Aysha decided to go find some sticks and create these gorgeous long stem paper roses for her grandmothers easter present. I took several and created garlands and the most gorgeous easter bonnet and bloomers a girl has ever seen! I hope you have fun looking at our easter creations this year! xo, Alys
