Design Crush Tuesday: Ginger Jars

by Lydia Marie Elizabeth


Soooooo I'm doing my taxes this week. Yes, this whole week. They take me that long. :(
And all I can daydream about is my next slated painting-- which is going to be a big one- of a TON of flower stuffed ginger jars. All my preliminary sketches are all over my studio space. 
And what's MORE exciting- is that my husband totally told me that I should get some REAL ones. You can bet your bottom dollar it did not take me very long to take him up on the offer. So excited so be painting these by the end of the week. 
With Easter around the corner, I had to include a couple of pretty little Easter eggs in this sketch.  
Happy Tuesday, friends! Wishing you easy taxes and big checks back from the government. 


Design Crush Tuesday: Havana

by Lydia Marie Elizabeth


I have never been to Havana; however, I have been to Cuba. Its beautiful, and I got the worst sunburn I've ever had.

Chanel hosted their resort collection on the Main Street last year, of o recall correctly, and ever since it has been on my mind. Colorful and exuding a vibrancy of spirit that few cities have.  

It is romanticized in my mind (as are most things,) but what a beautiful backdrop it makes. If I were ever to plan a city, it would probably look like Paris.  But if I were to plan a vacation city- it would have to look like Havana. 

Its my daydream vacation spot and I'd hire a pink taxi!

While my current city series is only taking on my darling America, a European city series may be shortly on its heels. Happy Design Crush Tuesday! ;)
