Backstage on a Monday...

An Arabian to Remember

When my Mom was little it was her dream to have a horse. Pretend led her to the Midwest as Annie Oakley, braking the legs off her porcelain toy horses as she galloped off to the sunset across the living room carpet. Her cowgirl heart won my Dad's over drafting tables at the design firm they met at in Boston, MA. Years later after their twins turned 7, my Dad did the kindest thing, He made my Mom's dream come true.
Bostonian, an Arabian in youthful dark gray, joined our family in 1985. Boston and I grew up together and at the age of 35, he took his last blade of grass and bid farewell.

He will be sorely missed and was greatly loved every day of his life.

Art Nouveau

Cranberry & midnight, I love Art Nouveau and always keep my eyes out for prints that hint at it. I first cam across Mucha's amazing illustrations as a little girl after coveting the hard cover copy my mother had of Sarah Bernhardt. 
Ooak/vintage Katherine

He was born Alfons Maria Mucha in the town of IvančiceMoravia, in what is now the Czech Republic. Mucha designed a poster for the actress Sarah Bernhardt, the most famous actress in Paris at the time. She loved the work, landing him a 16year contract immortalizing the beauty in his is unique style called Art Nouveau. Mucha would produce paintings, posters, advertisements, and book illustrations, as well as designs for jewelry, carpets, wallpaper, and theatre sets.

Here is one of my favorite advertisements of Mucha's.
