Human/House/Harvey: Silver

Human House Harvey: Silver and Landfill Dogs

It’s a brand spanking new and shiny 2014, y’all, and that definitely calls for some bling! This past year was full of some “shining” moments for sure, and I am more than confident that 2014 will offer some major sparkle too. So for the first Human/House/Harvey post of the new year, I thought I’d round…

alexandra valenti

On the heels of a weekend that was full of rain and dead mice, I could use a little color. I came across these beautiful photographs by Alexandra Valenti on Caitlin Mociun’s blog and haven’t been able to stop staring at them since. They remind me of grown-up finger painting in the best way possible….

pink: having a moment

Can we talk for a second about how pink is having the craziest moment ever? I have never been a big pink person (I was more of a purple girl growing up), but for the past year I have been squealing like an idiot any time I find something in a super-saturated shade of pink….

patterns from above

Few things are as beautiful as the earth from above. Although I favored aisle seats on our 30-plus book-tour flights (faster for making connections), I typically prefer a window seat, so I can watch the landscapes below. These beautiful photos were taken by Brent Yaggi & Sarah Hicks from a Cessna 172. Based in Denver,…

For me, peonies are one of the few flower types that consistently live up to the praise, adoration and near obsession they receive online. There’s a reason they were our most requested Flowers A to Z topic- they’re gorgeous. And something about the fact that you can’t just pick them up whenever you want them…

kari herer photography

I’m still trying to make myself wake up this morning, so I thought I’d kick off the early hours with this beautiful new photograph from Kari Herer. I always love the combination of illustration and three-dimensional objects, so this antler/rose image is calling my name. Kari also has a new series of images that feature…

Whew! Last night I finally plowed through the last of my emails that I missed over the break, and I’m feeling up-to-date, excited and ready to work. One of the emails that caught my eye last night was a submission from photographer Marco Suarez. Marco is based in Greenville, South Carolina (I keep hearing of…

debbie carlos

one of the things i’ve been most excited to see at etsy is the slow growth of the over-sized print/poster market. i love cute tiny prints and photos as much as the next person, but i really love when artists blow things up to larger scales, or at least offer prints and photos in sizes…

kari herer: polka dots

when it comes to patterns, i’m fiercely loyal to the stripe and polka dot. i don’t think i’ve ever met a polka dot i didn’t like, so i was especially happy to see an email from kari herer in my inbox about her new polka dot series. kari recently released a new series of photographs…

when i look at photographs, i want to travel. whether it’s to an actual destination, or to a make-believe world that the image creates or inspires, i’ve always really loved the way pictures can make you go somewhere else in your mind. so when i saw silvana’s photographs from paris on etsy, i was instantly…

valerie shaff

i had a bit of a crazy weekend, so this morning i wanted to start off with something peaceful and calming- and for me, that’s black and white photography. something about the starkness of black and white shots always relaxes me, and when the subjects are animals, even better. these beautiful sepia toned gelatin silver…

jennifer squires

in the chaos of the holiday season i cherish quiet moments where you can stop, think and take everything in. these photographs from jennifer squires remind me of exactly that. jennifer’s new series of seascape shots were all taken while sitting alone on the beach waiting for the sun to rise. i love the sense…
