Surround Yourself with Art

There’s a thrill to surrounding yourself with beauty, don’t you think?  Whether it’s a small bouquet of flowers…or a fantastic piece of art…or a song that burrows deep and won’t let go.

Today, I’m going to share some wallpapers with you.  For phones.  For computer desktops.  They’re my favorite right now.  I love changing it up.  It makes me happy.  See, I’m not hard to please.

First off, if you’re a Charley Harper fan, go to Josh Brill’s Lumadessa site and salivate over his birds.  He has iPhone wallpaper here and prints to buy here.  Liliana has a wonderful Charley Harper memory game that I adore, and if you’ve ever seen his alphabet book, you’ve probably, momentarily, swooned.

To celebrate their five-year anniversary, Design*Sponge is offering desktop calendars imagined by various artists.  I’m not a fan of their latest (sorry, Mr. Funderburgh, it’s just not me!…beautiful artwork, though!), but if you go here, you’ll see the last two wallpapers I’ve had on my desktop.  Right now, I have Lena Corwin’s light blue wallpaper up (which Liliana adores because of all the nameable items on it!), but before that, I had Deanne Cheuk’s light wallpaper.  You can choose to download the version with the calendar or without. [If you’ve never set your wallpaper before, you’ll have to go to your computer’s preferences and find the icon or listing for Desktop Appearance or Screen Saver.]

And the Minneapolis Institute of Arts just posted five phone wallpapers of Van Gogh’s “Olive Trees.”  You can view and download here.

You can always Google your faves.

Just the teensiest bit of loveliness goes a long way.

Now think of how you’d feel if you went that one extra step and signed up for the Mother’s Plunge, which you can view here…it’s almost here…a day of beautiful things, waiting just for you.

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
