Black & White and Wet All Over

New York is a wet and slushy mess today.  I thank my lucky stars that my morning commute is from my bed to my desk.  I still can’t completely escape the grey skies and black and white landscape though.  Here’s how it’s inspiring me today.

    We’ve got lots of snow here in Toronto too. Big fan of black and white – love your pics and quotes.

    You are a kindred spirit! Thank you for always brightening a world that, in Chicago winter, seems gloomy and for bringing positivity into my fears about starting my business.

    Warm regards!

    Even though your post is black, white and grey, today, you bought colour to my morning. Thank you.

    Hi Heather, Please send some of the cold and snow (or rain) to LA. That said. I’ve saved ALL of the quotes–this is what I’ve been working on lately (past umpteen years)–I’ll be framing them to hang all around me. Thank you. STAY WARM AND LOVED AND JOYFUL. xoxox Mary

    So inspiring….

    The two photos that pierced me: the ski trail–I had to leave CO last year, and that photo reminded me of how beautiful and ethereal the mtns are. Miss it much.
    The sink–I’ve been dreaming of a new kitchen day&nite,, and it’s very hard to find examples of the same stone used for both counter and backsplash. What a clean look.
