ESKIMO ENVY

Books and art and feng shui all come together on Feng Shui By Fishgirl. Take this recent installation by Colombian artist Miler Lagos. He constructed an igloo entirely by books. This dome-like installation, named “Home,” was on display at MagnanMetz Gallery in New York City…See some other book art here. And would this outdoor library give you goosebumps?

HABITUALLY CHIC IS GOOD FENG SHUI

I’m so excited to find a new design blog to add to my repertoire. Habitually Chic posts about all kinds of cool design stuff. Check out their post on travelin’ in style. They’ve even uncovered a pic of Led Zep in front of their airplane for this great pictorial.

50 SHADES OF GREY SLIDESHOW

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Looking back through the Feng Shui By Fishgirl archives for shades of grey I found these 50 pics. Okay half that amount. Still, a unique assortment of inspiration, n’est-ce pas? It seems I not only blog about interiors and architecture and design but there’s a fair amount of wildlife, oddities, rocks and rock stars. If you’re a fan of the book “50 Shades of Grey” and were disappointed when you googled my page to find a slideshow of, er, something other than what you expected to find I must apologize. You can read my review of the book here.

THE BUSY TRAP

Here’s a post you *must* find time to read: how we create our own sense of importance by constantly overbooking ourselves to be “too busy” to get together with friends, enjoy life, etc. I think author Tim Kreider is on to something here and I plan to give a copy of his article to all my superbusy friends. I’d write more on the subject but he’s said it wonderfully and after all, I’m too busy: click here for full article.

Take time out to enjoy life! Don’t overbook yourself and miss your life while it’s actually happening. At the end, you won’t say “I wish I had worked more”.

OUTDOOR LIBRARY–YES OR NO?

bookyard – an outdoor library by massimo bartolini

At first glance Feng Shui By Fishgirl LOVED this outdoor public bookyard (see plenty more pics of it at designboom). Two thumbs up for creativity to designer Massimo Bartolini.  Then I started wondering how the effects of climate and weather would take their toll on the books. Ew. Unless it’s in the desert where it hardly ever rains, or, unless there are caretakers covering or removing the books daily, this is probably not such a great idea. What do *you* think?

I’D RATHER BE…..?

Stuck in a rut? Feel like life is slipping you by and you don’t know where to begin to change that? Here’s where: rethink your priorities by looking over this List of 50 Questions to Ask Yourself . Reading this list is like reading questions from your soul. If you take the time to answer them, you may find you have all the answers to jumpstart your new attitude. Be gentle with yourself and take baby steps at first. Change can be scary–yes!–but without change we stagnate. That’s bad feng shui.
