My brother in law Captain John Ryan Dennison was killed during his tour in Iraq. We still think about and remember him daily. His squadron just received a Presidential Citation, the highest award given to an entire unit for combat heroism on Wednesday. You can see the article HERE . We are all very proud that his unit is still being remembered. Lots of love on this Memorial Day.
The boy and I got new beach cruisers this week. Mine is a happy yellow and his is an awesome matte black. He actually had a blue one and took it apart, sanded it and spray painted it. It's now murdered out. It turned out really great. I'll see if I can take some pics this weekend. We don't really have plans just hanging with friends, hitting the beach, and riding the new whips.
I hope you have a wonderful long weekend.
The new issue of Rue Magazine is out. This is their fifth issue and I can't stop looking at it. Since the death of Domino Mag this is the next best thing, thanks girls for filling the void. Cryastal Gentilello is one of my daily reads and is also one of the editors and she has an amazing blog too. Check out RUE here and her blog Plush Palate Here.
Anthropologie does a really great job of using usually discarded materials and creating beautiful window and merchandising displays. Each store has a team that creates these local pieces of art. It got me thinking about what I could make around my house for my table or mantle. I loved these displays.
HERE is a link to one of the creative minds behind these awesome displays. So here is to thinking outside the box and making something plain or discarded beautiful.
