The Pale Blue Dot

In honor of Earth Day today, I’m sharing this amazing photo of Earth taken by the Mars Rover and my favorite quote about our home.

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. … To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.” ~ Carl Sagan / The Pale Blue Dot

A Flock of Flamingos

So I have a confession, I have a bit of an obsession with flamingos lately.  There are several in my yard and I’ve collected a few related things…

I picked up this book by Molly Idle. It’s beautifully written and illustrated!

And this tape dispenser from Anthropologie, which I’m sorry to say is now sold out.

I have my eye on this print called Think Pink by the fabulous artist Charley Harper.
