Hob Knobbing

Just a quick post to brighten up your Monday!

I love this mad collection of different knobs on the dresser - perfect for the person (like me) who can't make up their mind!

Happy Monday everyone! It's a short week, so no excuse not to tackle it head on!

New Life

Way back in 2010 I did a post on the concept of 'Take flight' and butterflies in particular.  I mentioned a artist by the name of Paul Vilinski.  

For the most part I find Paul's work to be whimsical, happy and totally gorgeous.  

Then there is this piece. 

'Tears', 2004. Aluminium (found cans),
wire, silver chain, found crack cocaine
vials, dimensions variable.
Private Collection, New York

Butterflies rising up with vials of crack cocaine. It's such a moving piece, it's the first time an artwork has moved me to tears simply by looking at it.

Crack is such a horrible addiction, and more often than not destroying beautiful people.  But butterflies signify new life - emerging from their cocoons more beautiful and lovely than before.  

If you are going through a dark and challenging time - take note. This too shall pass. Life goes on, and the possibility and potential is there for each and every person to emerge a beautiful butterfly.

Mad Men moment

So, I got 'in' to 'Mad Men'. And when I say that, I mean watching episode after episode until my eyes could not stay open. On week nights. Because if you are a fan like me, watching 1 episode is just not enough. How can it be? Watching episodes again, because you might have missed something in the background.

And while the whole of the USA is getting their fix every Sunday night with the fifth season, we need to wait. It's killing me.

But, all is not lost. Thank you Esquire.
