I truly believe travel allows us a unique opportunity to reconnect with ourselves. I love Italy, as you know, but even a day trip will do the trick! This morning I am going to Boothbay, ME about an hour from home. Wayne Dyer said, “when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” I agree. My father always used to say, perspective is everything. So on this cold Maine winter day, I am going to change the way I look at things and discover the beauty within my state. Travel even a short trip can help you rediscover yourself!

Sometimes I need to use visualization to travel. I can not be in Europe all the time, so I meditate and take myself to my favorite destinations. I love courtyards and fountains they are often part of my visualization!

I am however planning my retreats to Europe! Come discover Europe with me! We will learn about culture through food, art, architecture, and people.

How do you feel about travel? I surround myself with fellow travelers, but I understand some people do not like to travel at all! Are you a lover of travel? Let me know how you feel by commenting on this post!

Have a lovely day! Remember perspective is everything.

Art…Turns A House Into A Home

This weekend Studio e Partners launched their company. They bring artists and consumers together. They believe that if you make a connection between an artist and a collector the art will mean more to the collector.

I know how important art is to finishing a home, to me it is crucial, but many of my clients are intimidated by art. It is hard for many people to justify the expense, but once they meet the artist they are buying into the relationship!

I love art and I bought several works this weekend.

 The Artists

Robin Hill

Robin Hill is the most incredible bird painter!

Robin Hill’s Owls


Brockie and Jane Stevenson were a big part of our childhood. Brockie’s art is iconic!

I just love the way that Brockie Stevenson shows us a slice of life


Andrew Faulkner…my handsome brother and a wonderful artist!

This is one of my favorite prints of Andrew’s very reasonably priced too!


Steve Burnett is my new favorite artist! I had never seen his work and I am now a collector. I purchased two of his paintings and I am dreaming about buying more!

I love Steve’s birds they are so lovely

Steve uses humor, fear, hope and imagination in all of his work…I am a huge fan!!!

Go buy art and finish your home!!!!!

I hope you enjoyed this look into Studio e Partners! Which one of these artists is your favorite? I also hope you like this post! Let us know by liking it, commenting and following our blog!
