A Bit of Inspiration.

"Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today."
~James Dean

These are such wise words to live by.  Of late, I am being reminded even more of the depth and wisdom in these words; because each time I flip to the news, there is something on about some type of catastrophe, chaos or heinous act(s) that have wreaked havoc somewhere. 



With that said, I know many of us are still blanketed under lots of snow so this Turkey Vogue editorial is an ode to the warmer days that we dream and live for …

The talented photographer is Mariano Vivanco and the gorgeous model is Behati Prinsloo.





Don’t stop dreaming my friends and life is ours for the taking and living! Let’s claim our happinessSmile. Have a lovely weekend and I so appreciate your visits and comments. BTW, thank you for your kind words on my foyer and fixture and also for the lighting links and suggestions. XX

PS. This post was actually for tomorrow(Friday), but i accidentally hit the publish now button(maybe it happened for a reason:-))

Lovely images Stacey! I hate watching the news by the way. So depressing, but I am aware it's life.

Delicious images! Full on Glamour. I like.

Sarah Klassen said...

It is crazy what it going on these days... I waver between wanting to know it all, and knowing just enough to stay informed. Like the comment above, from Sara, I too find it depressing, but a fact. We must be so grateful for everything!

And also, I wanted to thank you so so much for the lovely comment that you left for me the other day. I am feeling 100 times better than I was last week and thrilled to be back to normal!

Hope you are having a great week my friend,
xoxo

I am crazy about these shoes! And yes...we need a diversion from all that is going on in the world. So seize the moment!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning precious one...you know, I was just thinking on this theme yesterday as I was driving to work. Having a job these days is a honor and a blessing and living is too. I LOVE YOUR PHOTOS and how to celebrate the beauty and gifts of being young, old, sassy, sexy, wise, creative and so on. We all have something to smile about, and I thank you so much for your kind visit!!! I have been having meetings all week, keeping my from being able to take pictures of our recent progress, but I will share at least one snappy this new post this weekend, but the real unveiling will probably be next week! BUT FOR SURE, I am going to host a house-warming for you! I AM! And as I was reading your profile,I saw that you and I have much in common: THE LOVE OF REARRANGING FURNITURE, DÉCOR and MAGAZINES...and the preference to do all these things instead of sleep!

Have a magnificent weekend and may each day inch your way towards your castle!!! Fondly, Anita

P.S. I love this... said...

I hardly watch the news, stopped years ago. But I tuned in for about two hours on Tuesday and was downright horrified. The world is in such disarray.

Sidenote: LOVE those blue shoes!

The enchanted home said...

Stunning pictures..just loved seeing the beautiful fashions and the warm weather, ahhhh..the sun, grass, flowers in bloom, can't wait! That little scalloped suit is too cute. Great post.

Tina said...

Thanks dear Stacey for sharing those words of wisdom with all of us.
There´s a lot of worries around planet earth, I totally get what you mean.
Let us pray everything will calm down soon, very soon!!!
Wish you a happy weekend!

cabbage rose said...

yes, true, let's claim our happiness, and we must always have dreams, even in the most adverse times. very wise words, stacey. my dream right now is to wear the scalloped suit you have featured! turkey sounds wonderful right now...a great escape from all the snow that is blanketing the ground. have a wonderful weekend. take care.

What a fabulous quote!

Design Elements said...

delicious images, Stacey! I had this great quote on my home desk long time. I replaces it with another wonderful quote: „A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.“ Bob Dylan
Have a great weekend, Stacey!

AB HOME Interiors said...

Very inspiring photos. All so glamourous and soft. Have a great weekend!

quintessence said...

Love this quote - sometimes we get mired down in the day to day operations and forget to dream! Such a beautiful editorial - just waiting for the potential avalanche to melt!

pretty pink tulips said...

Love this happy post! We can always use a little glamour and inspiration. Thanks, Stacy!!

Alleen said...

One of my favorite quotes! I can't wait until spring time...these pics are so lovely. I LOVE the fixture in your foyer from yesterday, can't wait to see more pics, so exciting! Have a great weekend! xoxo

Carol@TheDesignPages said...

Sometimes we really do need to stop and examine our immortality but I agree that the news recently has been hard to digest.
I'm drooling over the chair in the last image. The clothes are all beautiful but the chair I could actually see me in:) Have a great weekend...Carol

Edwina@FASHION+ART said...

Great quote. Spooky coming from one who died so young. But sometimes life is very short.
Love the little plaid suit and the red and black tote especially.

Mona Thompson said...

Love your chandelier! Can't wait to see the rest of the space. Also love the beautiful beaded one that you are currently drooling over. It's funny, I was just thinking how my husband would totally not get that and when he heard the price he would faint.

Back to the lovely model today. total inspiration. If it doesn't warm up soon so I can get out and start running again and quit eating donuts, I'm not going to have a chance when Spring comes. Have a great , inspired weekend. Mona
