cravings // blue

cover / one / two / three / four / five / six

I accidentally made this week’s product round up color-coded. I noticed that a lot of the things I was gravitating towards were in various shades of blue so I just decided to run with it! Plus, I came across this great cover photo last week (via Dee’s tip on The Pursuit Aesthetic) and was itching to use it some how.

Do you guys remember the lovely Lo who provided an awesome guest post while I was on vacation? Well, I have wonderful news, she is now an official regular guest contributor over in these parts! Huzzah! As an added bonus, I will be a guest contributor on her blog, so after reading this post, go on over to Lo’s blog to see what I’ve shared.

Hello, Everyone! So excited to be back as a guest contributor here at Tenacious Dee. I  am constantly inspired by all things design and art related and am eager to share some of my favorite things coming out of this world with you all here on Dee’s thought organizer.

This week I would like to share with you the work of Bethan Laura Wood. Wood creates pieces of art that depict rock and geographic formations. Her work reflects the nexus of art as an object of function/fashion. Her “Rock” series is carried out through furniture, accessories, and scarves. Rocks (if you haven’t noticed from the name of my blog) are a constant source of inspiration for me.

Thanks for sharing her lovely work Lo! xo

A few more pictures from our rooftop picnic to usher in spring/summer in these parts. By the way, did you know that adding some mint to lemonade is an easy way to spruce up an already yummy drink? Thank-you Anni for that awesome tip!

I am so thrilled to share with you my latest collaboration with the lovely and talented Anni. Our rooftop picnic was filled with yummy eats, pretty flowers and the inspiring view of the Chicago skyline. As an added bonus, the threat of rain added some really neat lighting, we couldn’t have planned better ourselves. Happy Spring!

A few more images from the collaboration between Anni and myself. Anni happens to live in one of the coolest neighborhoods in Chicago, these outdoor shots were taken right by her loft which is by some railroad tracks and some pretty sweet open space.

I am so stoked to introduce the first installment of the personal series, a collaboration between the lovely and talented Anni Glissman of Anni Cee Photographie and myself. Our first series of photographs is centered around a cozy, rustic winter scene. Winter is my absolute favorite season and Anni and I tried to capture the essence and magic of winter in the city.

Isn’t Anni one talented lady? I had such a great time working with her. Stay tuned as I’ll be posting more photos from this series.
