Gucci Bee Bag

Thought this was a pretty nice Gucci bag. 


Large decorated bee with expansive wings on the flap. 


Beautiful pink with white pearl studs. 


Brass chain and red, white, and blue shoulder strap. 


Priced around $1500! 


Small shoulder bag yet plush oversized and ornate make a big statement. 


Nice gift for that special someone or to treat yourself to Gucci! 😉

Woman In Gold, Gold, and More Gold

What an amazing painting featured in the movie, Woman In Gold.


The painting is called the Portrait of Adele Block-Bauer I and was commissioned by her adoring husband. 


That face! And surrounded by everything in gold yet you can still clearly make out her stunning dress. 


I’ve never seen anything like this: the vividness and the majesty of it. 

Honestly, I think there is a resemblance to my beautiful mother, Gerda Blumenthal who was also from Germany. 


The interesting history on this is that it was stolen by the Nazis from the Jewish owners in the Holocaust, but was finally returned to their family in America that succeeded in suing Austria for it back.


This is truly one of the greats! 😉

Beautiful Solar Power

Thought this was a beautiful rendition of solar power. 

You can have energy. 

And you can have art. 

Here you can have both. 

It’s functional to harness the sun’s energy and it’s designed to look sleek and fit the landscape. 

Nice job by Florida Power and Light (FPL)!  😉

Graffiti Art

I really love Graffiti Art!


Went to Wynwood Walls in Miami. 


The art is just fantastic. 


Better than the typical museum.


So creative. 


So big.


So colorful. 


So full of life. 


They took a whole rundown neighborhood and made it cool and great. 


On December 5, they will be opening  the Museum of Graffiti.


Can’t wait to go back and immerse myself in it! 😉

Ferrari Motor Furniture

This was very cool. 


The first is a coffee table for the living room.


The second is half of a nice desk.


Both are made out of working Ferrari engines.


The coffee table goes for $50,000.


And the desk goes for $75,000.


I will told that this is a bargain based on what a working Ferrari engine goes for. 


In a sense you can take your table for a spin around the block…LOL.


Truly the engine (and not just design of the car) is a work of art. 


It merits being a centerpiece of your office or home. 😉
