You Can't Be in a Bad Mood: things that make me smile

Recently, I'm noticing more art, objects, things that make me smile. I have a saying when I find something really cheerful and clever or beautiful at the same time, "You can't be in a bad mood when you look at that!"

Here are a few things that put me in a great mood...

Dominic Wilcox is one of my favorite emerging artists. Check out his latest work (and his blog, Variations on Normal), Watch Sculptures called Moments in Time.

Jaime Derringer, founder of Design Milk must share my sense of humor, she finds images, products and design that often make me smile. These made me laugh out loud...

I especially love this photo by Vadim Fedotov that appeared on my facebook page. Really, can you look at this and be in a bad mood?

Be on the look out today for art, music, dance, products that make you smile and share them with me. I've got another print of this painting for the first person who sends me a link to something that makes me smile...

Been meaning to write for a while: your Aug 22nd posting, using old books to dress up an ugly fireplace, caught my attention as absolutely brilliant and totally shows the PRO you really are ! Who could/would ever pull that kind of imagination out of, wherever you get it, and make it totally rock. Sometimes you inspire me in a weird way, altho’ I don’t have any clue what to do with that inspiration !
