What brought you WordPress?

WordPress is, with due respect to other blog services, in my opinion the best, this is supported by the fact that many, much attention has been paid to its clients, through technical assistance, and other forms of cooperation with the bloggers! Particularly fascinated me, that some calm and brilliant, and very wide range, high quality blogs. All in all, an excellent blog service and much more!

What inspires you?
The  beauty of the human soul and generosity of heart with people of good will.

What lessons have you learned in life that you would like to share?
Many things, but here briefly. Something related to the broad scope of the blog as a medium to make friends, writing a blog I realized the truth that I want to share with you, the blog and knows no boundaries, no physical or spiritual, the blog I have met many people of different fate, selfless giving, but also more received, he became a true friend to people, socialized with many. Had a bad experience and caution is certainly necessary, but the friends that I met writing my blog are real people, although virtual, are people of good heart and noble soul, and no way I’d changed, even for some real!

Your Brilliantly Deployed Kisses

Written: © Maxima

Your kisses brilliantly deployed,

And framed

Just don’t review width of

  Twinkle

trodden paths

Range heart of the, Revisited

Bliss that – with no mercy

– Orchestra to be

Orchestra of the most engrossing

Instruments and sounds

That pushing aside the veil and shadow

The sources of our self-knowledge

He plays the most beautiful music of love

.. And all – signposts – absolutely

Lose their meaning

I love you

 This is my favorite poem…  
Written: © Maxima Electronic thoughts, 
Flowing in waves, So, am I bot?
I smile for the beautiful love that makes life worth living.
I cry for injustices that some bastards do to helpless women and innocent children.
I stretch in the morning, and brace the sunrise.
I cringe at night, for all wrongdoings and pray for forgiveness, before stars go nowhere in sight.
I cherish beautiful friends like you,  and curse those who mongers and make fun of you.
So, I am not a bot,  for in my heart, I cherish all of you!
………….
We thank our guest blogger, Maxima, for the incredible energy and loving spirit to be our Featured Blogger of the month!

Fantastical and Magical: TIM BURTON

Tim Burton Illustration

Outlandish, sinister, and imaginative are a few words to describe Tim Burtons movie making magic style! He is unmistakably known for his dark, quirky-themed movies such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Sissorshands and Alice in Wonderland.  It all stared at a very  young age, Burton was mesmerized by popular culture and loved Sci-Fi and Horror films, the extraordinary horror-genre actor the late, Vincent Price being a particular influence and inspiration.  This explains his movie making style in a nutshell…creep, crawly and completely fantastical! Here are a few snippets of his outlandishly creative films… XO ~ Tresors De Luxe!

…hold my hand…

By definition, to hold means: To have and keep in one’s grasp: held the reins tightly. There is something so innocent, yet so delicious, by holding another persons hand…we love adorning hands with luxurious treasures, and making a statement about who you are.  Our pieces are hand selected and thoughtfully chosen to reflect the best you…

Have a treasure filled day ~ Tresors De Luxe www.tresorsdeluxe.com

“I could Conquer the world with one hand, as long as you holding the other.” Unknown

“Small things that mean a lot: Cute texts, tight hugs, long replies, holding hands, remembering the little things, & kisses on the forehead.” Unknown

“I get the greatest feeling when I’m singing. It’s other-worldly. Your feet are anchored into the Earth and into this energy force that comes up through your feet and goes up the top of your head and maybe you’re holding hands with the angels or the stars, I have no idea.” Cyndi Lauper

Up, up and AWAY!

For some, stepping into a contraption that is 6′ x 6′, fueled by hot air and reaches heights so tall that you can touch the clouds, doesn’t exactly sound like something one would do volentarily…now if you can throw all caution to the wind, make sure your living trust is signed and dated, it’s the perfect Sunday escape!  Here are a few images of those who’ve stepped out on the ledge and taken that “leap of faith!”

Have an AMAZING day, make time to smell the roses and most of all, do it in style…

Our Featured Blogger { This French Farmhouse }

We are thrilled to bring you our newest featured blogger for August!  We are pretty confident you’ll be swept away by all the little goodies, just like we are…

Mini Coconut Cheesecake!

I started being creative as soon as I could hold a pencil, spatula or a pair of scissors in my hand (which was not easy seeing as I am left handed and the world is out to get me.) I made mock magazines, took photos and stood on a stepstool to make homemade donuts.  As I grew up I became increasingly interested in the visual arts, eventually went to school for graphic design and now own my own studio, Pixel Soup Creative. But, when I am not designing logos, I am taking photos and blogging about my life in Redmond at www.ThisFrenchFarmhouse.com

French farmhouse Peonies!

Bedroom treasures…

My blog is made up of the  the things I love, the things that inspire me, and the things that I’ll remember 50 years from now.

Amalfi, Italy

Grilled artichoke…delicious

I share this life with Justin, my best friend and husband, and our sweet and smiley baby boy, Sage Michael. Our family is also composed of chocolate labs Huck and Chili and chickens Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. We love to work on projects together and travel the world.

First there is the house…

We live in Redmond, Washington – about 20 minutes east of Seattle. Our craftsman cottage was built in 1947 and sits in the middle of a country acre. It’s a lot of work, but we have never had more fun making a house a home. Since we bought in 2009, Justin and I have worked together to bring the property back to its former glory and rejuvenate the country setting with a lived in, yet refined French Farmhouse style. Give me three shades of white paint and some 220 grit sandpaper and I’ll shabby chic the car if you’ll let me. We jokingly refer to it as the “Shanda Foisy Signature Farmhouse Finish.”

My bedroom…

Then there is the food…

I started cooking with my mom as soon as I could stand. Years of making homemade breads, curries and learning to brine a chicken prepared me to work as an apprentice pastry chef under Julie Hoagle during high school. While everyone else was in after school sports practice – I was furiously trying to perfect the ‘airiness” of my Madeline Cookies. I seriously considered culinary school, but in the end decided that the hours and lifestyle of being a chef were not for me. While design helps pay the bills, cooking is still my passion. When I’m not working in my studio or on the house, you will find me in the kitchen; cooking, styling and photographing (I’m still learning!), and most importantly, eating with my family.

and the Arts and Crafts…

I try to squeeze in as much creative time as I can, but the days seem to go by much faster now that we have a child. Although I’m not opposed to putting the baby in the front pack while I paint a picture or wander through a flea market looking for things to re-purpose. I do my best to make home-made gifts for Justin and our family. At the end of the year we like to give “Our Box of Favorite Things.” It is usually made up of mostly cheese and alcohol, but our family doesn’t seem to mind.

The { ever growing } Bucket List Take a food styling class in Brooklyn from Béa Peltre Kiss a boy on a bridge in Paris Go to Tanzania and South Africa Learn to ride a motorcycle Grow an organic vegetable garden Write a cookbook Eat Panang curry in Southern Thailand Have a farm sink in my kitchen Watch my son ski with my husband Eat Pizza in Naple Be on “This American Life”

Have a luxurious and treasured filled day,
