I'm In A New York State Of Mind


I've long admired Aussie artist Sophie Blackall's art on Etsy, but her latest project really exemplifies celebrating the unexpected and lovely. Titled "Missed Connections" it's now travelling the NY subways on posters and in a beautiful book.  Thanks to 'Art by Wiley' for sharing this project with me, I'm reveling the fun of Sophie's art.

So dear friend, I hope that no matter what you're doing that you find joyful connection in whatever way you travel through today.

    1. Taking a leaf out of your book Suzanne and baking up a storm with the littlest Gift and hopefully this afternoon we'll get to enjoy the delights of the beach as a family before watching 'The Help'...well that's the plan anyway.
      Huge hug!
