Journal On A Dress

Today is the kind of day that just makes you want to YELL all day long about how beautiful it is outside. My friend Jenny said, "Venice is in HD today", and she is correct. The rain during the nights this weekend made the days so crisp and clear, it actually kind of hurts to look at. The jasmine is bursting out and each deep breath inward is rewarded with a perfumed sigh back out. It makes you want to just write your feelings down the front of yourself ... with a Sharpie.

I had taken this photo a while back in the window of the thrifty shop on Abbot Kinney that is sometimes open and sometimes not. I want to know the person that wrote about myth and love and art down the front of their pink satin dress. And then I want to create my own journal dress. Inspiration is everywhere ... and inspiration MEANS "breathing in". What will you come up with today when breathing it all in?


  1. I miss VENICE so much... Every day I read your blog I'm inspired! Thank you Carol!!
    You make me want to move back. ;)

  2. I wish I was there to smell the Jasmine -- lilacs and lilies-of-the-valley are still a couple of months off here, I'm afraid!! I love the thoughts you write because I can almost smell the JASMINE!! Love you!! XOXOXOXO
