I have been greatly inspired by the work of European Orientalist painters. Here you will find a vast collection of beautiful images from Marrocco, Syria, Africa, Egypt, Iran, etc.
According to my husband we live in a zoo. Well we currently only have one goldfish and a 4 lbs Silkie Terrier, named Benji, but we also get lots of visitors. Ducks, rabbits, squirrels, and array of birds, you name it. They must sense I love pets and anything related to them, so check out my finds about our little friends.
I love to cook and being raised in a family of Germans, Italians and Iranians you can pretty much guess what our menus would look like. Now add a lot of travel and recipe collections that just begged to have their own blog space. Enjoy!
The garden is a place of meditation and I love to arrange and decorate bringing the outside in and the inside out. Living in California does that to you and garden topics are always on my mind. Come stroll through and see if I can inspire you as well.
