Art and Childhood Friends...

Well, by now you know how we do it in the SAV. Art everywhere... Everywhere I look... I see... art. Savannah celebrated the side-walk art festival this past weekend where artists from the local Savannah College of Art & Design create colourful chalk  art pieces on the side-walk of the very beautiful Forsyth Park.

Thousands came out to admire the beauty of the pieces.
A stroll through the park and art... bright..soulful.


Saturday night we went to dismantle the art show so sad when its all over.
But looking forward to all the new projects and a new show in the Fall...
We left the sadness behind and filled our tanks with what else...
More art...

I visited the Taste Art event where local performers and visual artist share in a collaboration for a one night only show. My sweet friend Anita is one of the organizers of this years event... I was in awe of the creativity...

From furniture and light fixtures...


To Visual arts...

You know my love for Martinis and there was a piece about an olive and a Martini...

And of course a parade of the eccentric...

And the bizarre...

Because how boring life would be...
Originality is a by-product of sincerity such pure concept can't be argued with... 
It takes courage to be who you really are...

Music and Art seem to go hand in hand...

La Dulce Vida is Childhood Friends

Then Sunday... ahhhhh.
These two have been attached at the hip since the age of  four...
It has been so beautiful seeing them grow...
They keep me honest and grounded and a true original...
They have so much to teach to all the grown ups that seem to not be able to keep themselves rooted...
Their friendship is solid and loyal and they celebrate each others uniqueness.


Once I heard someone say...
The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.

Another Versatile Bog Award given to us by Letty...
Not sure if this means we are cheating but...
I have known Letty since I was 12 years old... I am now 38 ;)
Letty and I are now reconnecting...
Thanks to wonders of the Internet we have now found each other once again... Life is sweet.

Shameless plug...
We were added to the circle along with many other great bloggers here you can vote for us daily.

Hope your weekend was filled with unique and sweet moments...


  1. blown away by the creativity!
    GA's got it going on.

    i love this quote:

  2. Everytime I see your posts, I remember that I have a Canon SLR that I love and that I promised I would take photography classes to understand my camera better and hopefully help me take better pics. Today I made a step in the right direction. Thank you!

  3. Awww that is too sweet. I didn't know that you and Letty knew each other so well! Thank goodness for the internet! I love coming by to see both of you for a dose of all things beautiful. :)

  4. Adriana, I have certainly been enriched by being here today. This is the place to come for a creative boost. Everything has charmed, from the sidewalk art festival, to the Taste Art event, to the parade of eccentrics, to your words which tied it all together into a delightful presentation. You got my vote – I went straight over and cast mine.

  5. wow. Major visual eye candy.
    P.S. I love the mustaches. I like to pop one on now and then for fun.

  6. Right up my alley...sorry I missed it! I've been in Savannah about 2 1/2 years, and still getting my bearings about the local creative scene.

  7. @Nini Yay That is awesome... Can't wait to see what you capture.

    @Lisa We really need to do lunch or go to a show sometime ;)

  8. I love the color texture in these pictures! The buttons (makes me want to run my fingers over it), the view-masters (hello-flashback!), the pine-cone unicorn, and cow on the stairs. Beautiful. Qué bonitas fotos tomas, Adriana. : D

  9. that was to fun of a post
    i loved the tree painting
    the pinecone on the singer made me giggle
    looked like a ton of fun

  10. I love the button head! I have a big tub of buttons my mom used to let us play with as kids. It makes me want to find a fun way to display them!

    And I love the girls and their mustaches! So cute.

  11. Those are beautiful shots. I love the button sculpture. I'm a new follower from the I Love My Online Friends hop. Heather
