Doug's best pal Robert has, for years, had a blue face lady painting hanging in his home - a bachelor with good taste, no less. And I, for years, would suggest that perhaps it was quite tacky and he should hang something else. Well low and behold his favourite art piece is a hot item these days - and I can hardly believe that I now know who the artist is Tretchikov. I find these paintings very pleasing these days - I've come a long way baby!

Second and third image are from here.

Dear Fiona.
I came across your blog when creating sets for fun on Polyvore.
I must say your blog and your sense of style is wonderful.
I will start following you if this is ok and go back to your blog again.
Thank you so much for sharing. Truly inspiring.
Thank you.

PS. I also have a blog but not as great :-)
