color inspiration compliments of flikr

I've decided on a color combination that I think will work well with my golden retriever colored couch. I say that not because it's covered in hair ... we'll maybe it is, but I picked the best color for the couch. You can't see any hair!

Anyhow I'm loosing the beast we don't speak of [the dreaded lazy boy] and replacing it with my moms wonderful light stained rocking chair. I hope to accent it with throws and pillows from this color combinations. Next I need to get inspired to do some paintings to add some more color to the regulated white painted apartment walls.

Great album covers I need to get framed

I love looking at old albums at record shops, antique stores, rumage sales, thrift stores ... what have you. There are so many wonderful images not to mention the music. But sometimes you find an artful album cover that captures a wonderful spirit, when maybe you've never even heard of the artist or the tunes. Recently I picked up Debussy's Claire De Lune only becuase of the wonderful album cover capturing an evening scene. [KLM, don't forget about the albums]. The album covers here are more about the artists for me, starting with Dolly Parton. Every gal should have a Dolly Parton album, her strength can carry us all through tough times!

You can surely see a theme with the Beach Boys. I just can't get enough of classic surfing right now. that'll change when the leaves change ... but I kind of hope it doesn't.
