Emily Filler

 

Late spring comes in second only to autumn as a favorite time of year, and Emily Filler‘s paintings and mixed media art drops me smack-dab in the middle of a spring garden. Paint on paper, silkscreening, and paper collage all work together to create some magic chemistry that feels just right for early June.

Marion Vidal Jewelry

 

Marion Vidal started her jewelry line back in 2004, creating a dialogue between color, material, and shape within every piece. Her geometric creations play with several contrasts – rigidity vs. flexibility, strength vs. fragility, balance vs. break, and gross vs. refined – and I’m especially drawn to Marion’s necklaces.

Nelio

 

I see plenty of graffiti on a regular basis, but it’s nothing like this! French street artist Nelio creates what I’d call abstract murals, ones that I’d happily have on the entire exterior of my home.

Salad Dressing 10 Ways

Summer is unofficially here, and to me that means cramming as many veggies into this here bod as possible while they’re in season. My go-to is usually a kitchen sink style salad that uses up whatever’s languishing, and tying it all together with a delicious dressing that’s like a bow on top. I’m looking forward to trying out these ten recipes in the months to come!
