Here we are again at Feisty Friday, and I’m going to introduce you to two little girls who give feisty a new meaning. This is Karsen (on the left) and Marin (on the right.) They are two 10-year-old girls who have been bitten by the interior design bug this summer. With some imagination and perseverance, they created something amazing and beautiful from something boring and common. I interviewed them to get the real story. Enjoy!
Today we are cheering on Shari Stamps from the chic and sassy website Popsugar.com, more specifically Popsugar Moms. Emphasizing the importance of fun and inspiration when designing a kid’s room, Juvenile Hall Design had two of their room designs chosen to represent the cause.
Please read this quote.
“Art consists of limitation. The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame.” -Gilbert K. Chesterton.
What, What WHAT!? This is a philosopher telling us this. Isn’t it amazing that if someone labels himself or herself a philosopher, we tend to immediately straighten up and absorb their words as law? When someone labels themselves an artist, there is usually more of a “step back and wait for it” kind of vibe.
I love a frame. And it’s a great way to polish up any piece of art. It does seem to add an extra element of importance to a piece. But the frame is supposed to compliment the art within it. And in doing that, it also compliments the artist who created it, and those who view it. It’s not a boundary. It’s an award. It’s a pat on the back. It’s a “Hey, look at this!”
