hi guys, happy earth day! i hope you had a good monday. personally, i’m winding down but just wanted to stop by and say hi on this great day of reverence for the planet. if i didn’t do what i do i’d have been an archaeologist and really take the time to study this glorious globe. i love cave paintings, stone carvings, obelisks, ancient texts and the mostly the mysteries behind each of each of them.
earth day seemed like the perfect time to explore a question i’ve always had about how the ancient sites are laid out, where they are on the planet and how they may act as a grid we can follow to tap into some of the earth’s unseen energy resources. when i googled it just now i was pretty surprised to see how ridiculously ‘on the grid’ they actually are. i’d love to be smart enough to know what to do with the information. i’d harness the power of a summer solstice and fuel the planet for a year! maybe thinking about it will spark an idea in a bright mind on how to crack the code.
well that’s one of my many earth day hopes anyway. on the homefront, candy and i have started our new green philosophy: share everything :)
well i hope you enjoy some food for thought. have a great night!
The geometric pattern of the Earth Grid is energetic in nature. and this Earth energy, organized into a precise web, may have once, and could be again, the source of a free and inexhaustible supply of power, once powering older civilizations of high technological achievement. Grid theorists state that this Grid technology can be reclaimed again—today.

A mysterious line runs through the horizontal side of the Earth and can be easily observed from a globe with a horizontal ring. The six mystic places that are lined up with this line are the Nazca Lines, Ollantaytambo, Great Pyramid of Egypt, Paratoary, Tassili’Ajjer and Easter Island. This line also passes through in the world such as the Sahara Desert, Brazilian Rainforest, the highlands of New Guinea, the North Atlantic Ocean, South Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea.The alignment also crosses the source and mouth of the Amazon River. There are also sites that line within 1/10 of a degree of this line and those include: Petra, Perseopolis, Khajurado, Pyay, Sukothai, and Anatom Island. Mohenjo Daro, Ganweriwala, Machupicchu, Cuzco, and the Angkok temple at Preach Vinear are within a quarter degree of this amazing line. The alignment forms a perfect circle between the equator and the outer circle of the Earth. Most ancient sites were built around atsronomical calculations.
something to consider anyway! have a great night~
good morning and happy sunday! i hope your day is off to a good start!
what do you have planned for the weekend?
i spent way too long messing around on the computer yesterday and hope to make today a little more productive.
but i guess everything we do bears fruit and as i happened to pass by pinterest (just real quick) this morning, i took a look of some of what got pinned yesterday.
turns out lots of it was outdoor and gardening so i thought i’d pass on some of the simple and pretty ideas running rampant.
have you started spring gardening?
having a workspace like this could be motivational
i think i’ll start today!
maybe i’ll attempt something like this and will let you know.
enjoy your day and night!
p.s. even a small window box can bring great joy!
happy saturday guys, how are you doing tonight? i’ve been laying low for the past few days. working quietly and trying to grasp what happened this week.
like everyone, i’m looking for meaning in a brutal world. what gives me hope and inspiration are my fellow americans.
i can’t imagine why there is such duality in the world. how it can he both light and dark when the light is so bright.
i hope you don’t mind another flower post.
i’m obsessed with peonies and anything resembling them. even the photos make me feel better.
what is it about flowers? i find something healing and comforting in them.
i hope you do too. i did get an orchid for my bedside table and tulips for the entry. and they really cheered me up. i know it’s trivial but wanted to share what i guess is nature’s remedy in case you needed a boost too. well, i just thought i’d stop by and let you know i’m thinking of you. have wonderful weekend!
“He is happiest who has power to gather wisdom from a flower.” -Mary Howitt
good morning and happy monday guys. it’s a rainy day here but april showers bring may flowers right? while i was obsessing over the weekend i came across a ton of pretty images and thought it would be a good start to a new week.
it’s been an emotional weekend around here and i want to stop and refocus. i’m dying take a deep breath and smell the fresh petals!
guess i’ll have to settle for the photos. that supposedly works just as well according to feng shui! (well, almost :)
if you’re in a garden today, enjoy it and have a great new week!
it’s the first time in a while i’ve had alone so, well, here i am doing what i want to do! and that happens to be indulging in an obsession i’ve had for a couple days.
in spare moments i’ve been collecting shots of the soon to be redecorated (the interior NOT the exterior) hotel de crillon in paris. i’m stashing way too much but thought you may enjoy a little of the edited collection. some of the links to the photos are at the bottom of the post. if any are yours please let me know.
the grand hotel has been on my mind since richard mentioned on his blog that it was going to be ‘redecorated’ over the next two years (not torn down). some of the contents will be sold at auction next week to make room for improvements.
here’s the link to the items on the auction block: artcurial.com/en
i once had a ball there with claudia T and hate that they’re taking some of it apart.
it’s one of the oldest and most ornate hotels in paris.
perfect for fairy tale weddings and chic fashion shoots since it’s such a magical public palace.
known for impeccable service
the perfect place for high tea or a quiet rendezvous
attention to detail
and the food’s good too
oh, and desserts
beautiful garden restaurant grounds
started in the 1800s, she hasn’t changed much since her unveiling in 1909
watching the well heeled come and go
the perfect backdrop
thousands of stories on a romantic stage
the rooms could use makeovers on the upholstery and bedding
but taking down the chandeliers? :(
and the marble mantles? those are up for sale too, for some reason they’re taking the originals out. to replace with what?
they’re also selling linens, dishes and the hotel silver.
it’s always been the place to see and be seen (myrna loy photographed on the roof deck)
and photographers love the setting
even the outtakes are good
not to mention the finished product
it stirs creative imagination
links in this post:
The Hotel de Crillon in Paris is one of two identical stone palaces on the Place de la Concorde, wich was constructed in 1758.
In 1788 the Count of Crillon, acquired the building for a hotel.
Address: 10 place de la Concorde, 08 Arr., Paris, Ile-de-France, 75008, France
hi again! just thought i’d share some of what’s for sale in the hotel. i may be over reacting (someone wrote and called me a drama queen), but i just don’t get why you have to take out the orignal and traditional in the process? like these fireplaces, why are they being removed? why aren’t they worth preserving?

- . anyway i’ll calm down now!
good morning guys! how is everything going now that spring has sprung? it’s been early to bed and early to rise around here which has left little time for blogging and well, taking time to smell the roses.
candy girl is almost as obsessed with tpa as i am and we have finally come to a place where we can sit back and regroup instead of put out fires all day.
in celebration of having a moment of free time, i wanted to stop by and send some pretty flowers your way. maybe i’ll even pick some up for the apartment today and practice what i preach about having a bouquet around no matter how small. i’m sure i’d be obsessed with snapping a good shot of them if they were as delicious as these! well, have a beautiful day and if you have real flowers in your life i hope you get a minute to stop and enjoy them whether you shoot or smell them!
hey guys how are you doing this fine tuesday? it’s nippy in ny but the sun is popoing in and out thad those bits of brightness are bringing me a lot of joy. here come some rays now! i’m working from the apartment kind of just like the shot above (i wish)! so i couldn’t help but post it. i leave in a few hours and this trip has left me with a lot of opportunities. i have to decide if i could live in the city again and change up life as i know it.
in the meantime i was messing around on pinterest since i have a few moments to spare. between the photos, creativity and endless inspiration, it’s also instructional.
the shots that people take blow me away. and tweaking them is incredible too. from instagram, hipstamatic, photoshop, and iphoto there’s a whole world out there. i want to be a better photographer and have been bookmarking some pages to go through.
would you ever do a challenge like this?
are you obsessed with photography? everyone has such an individual style. i’d love to see books on pics in phones each year. it would be a great chronicle!
well anyway i hope to find some time to actually go and check out these sites in depth. if you do let me know! if you want to do the challenge let me know that too, it could be fun! ok, well it’s off to work we go. have a spectacular day!
hi guys, happy monday. i was toying with the idea of an april fools joke, hence the title! truth is i’m not going anywhere, in fact, now that spring has sprung i’d love to get here more often. i hope you had a beautiful weekend and are ready to start this week off strong. what do you have planned? happy april first!
hello all and happy weekend! claudia ii is just about to roll up and we’re heading off to mom and dad’s for an easter dinner. i just wanted to stop by and wish you a great day, whatever you’re doing!
good morning mes chers amis! it’s a gorgeous brisk day in nyc. i came in last night to spend the weekend with friends and family.
we’ve been in and out all morning getting the apartment cosy and stocked.
for the next little while i’m gonna just do what i wanna do which is chill and say hi.
(tulip fields in holland above and below)
i’m enjoying having a clean slate for a minute.
i spent some time between emails on pinterest and have been checking out the likes i’ve been saving
you know how the likes are…no real home and rarely looked over. anyway here are a few non sequitur shots from today.
apparently i’m feeling color
anyway now it’s not morning anymore and it was when i started this so it’s time to get back to reality. and so, tomorrow. till then i bid you adieu. have a glorious day!
ps thought you’d enjoy this!
