iRetroFone :: freeland studios

I'm a huge lover of all things Mac and when I stumbled upon Freeland Studios very cool combination of the iPhone and retro house phone...happiness filled my heart. Florida artist Scott Freeland fuses Art with Function and I seriously want two of these for our home. The best part....You can actually talk into this phone's receiver by plugging into your iPhone...VERY COOL!

The iRetroFone Base is a fully-functional, stationary iPhone dock with working handset and complete compatibility with USB cable. Each individual iRetroFone is hand-sculpted and handcast in urethane resin by Scott at Freeland Studios, Inc.

flock of inspiration :: artist frank gonzales

As many of you know birds are a strong theme in my life. Needless to say I am quite smitten with the works of Frank Gonzales. His bird paintings have pretty much stolen my heart. I love the patterns and composition on each piece almost as if each bird was vibrating color.

hidden beauty :: macro style

Last week I finally got around to using the macro lens my fiancé gave me and I was lucky enough to find a couple of models in our backyard. This little guy was sun bathing on one of the bushes in our yard and was too comfortable to move so I took the chance to snap some pictures while he lounged around. The others were of some very tiny models I had building a home in our flower bed. Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with the new lens and the pictures! Thanks honey!
