This video about mixing face powder is mesmerizing.

Interesting look at habits that are keeping you from being a great communicator.

I am pretty interested in this master class on photography by Annie Leibowitz. At $100, I expected it to be much more expensive.

I need a house so I can get a Frank Lloyd Wright bird feeder.

Why you need a Roth IRA. I enjoy reading Two Cents pieces.

This is certainly one take on Trent Reznor’s 50 Greatest Songs. I don’t necessarily agree with this list, but I would put many of these into my own top 50.

At a very different place in the musical spectrum, Dave Matthews performed a short acoustic set at NPR.

After 10 years on Twitter, it took a negative tweet regarding Tonya Harding and her appearance on Dancing with the Stars for me to get trolled! All thanks to Yahoo Entertainment for including my tweet in their story.


Throwback to the Gary Numan show from last December. I need to see another one soon.

Throwback to happier times for McLaren F1. And really enjoyable ads featuring F1 drivers.

Nine Inch Nails is BACK, and playing festivals this summer and fall. Here’s the full livestream of their set from the Panorama Festival.

We didn’t go to the festival, but the next morning, got an invite to a surprise Nine Inch Nails show at Webster Hall. It was ridiculous and hot and packed but super fun.

These bookshelves are being specified for a baby’s room on a Beautiful Mess but I think they would be good anywhere.

Hidden features and third-party program for Spotify improvements.

From the Kitchn: the ultimate guide to cleaning your kitchen cabinets.

From Advanced Style, an advanced love post from a couple that have been married for 60 years!

I saw a recent photo of Queen Elizabeth and was stunned by this tiara with aquamarines. It turns out that this piece has a long history.

Jamie Beck’s French adventures are already making me envious, but her Provence self-portrait series is next level. Her version of The Last Supper is stunning.

David and I were out on a random day of estate sailing and I saw this house and stopped immediately, because it looked so much like a Frank Lloyd Wright house. It turns out that the Kessler House was designed by an architect who trained under Frank Lloyd Wright, John Rattenbury. You can learn about the house, and its restoration, here and here.

I have 2 previous posts with images from Florida Southern College: Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture at Florida Southern College – William H. Danforth Chapel & Frank Lloyd Wright Architecture at Florida Southern College – Annie Pfeiffer Chapel.

I have been a Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiast for many years. Not only was Frank Lloyd Wright a genius, but his life was entertaining and scandalous, to say the least. This Ken Burns documentary about the life of Frank Lloyd Wright is completely worth the watch time.

I was very excited to take an informal tour of the largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world, at Florida Southern College, while visiting Lakeland, Florida, back in February. Here’s my final post with images of the campus.

A network of esplanades was part of the original design and were built in the first phase of construction.

In the high heat of Florida summers, these are surely a welcome addition. These lead to the Polk County Science Building.

The Carter, Walbridge and Hawkins Seminar Buildings are also part of the initial phase of building.

A view of the other side of the Polk County Science Building.

The Roux Library and the water dome were included in the expansion of the original build.

The Watson-Fine Administration building , just to the left of the view in the last image.

I love when the buildings are signed.

A wider view, including the doorway.

If you turn away from the door, you can see the reflecting pool and the angular detail of Frank Lloyd Wright’s design.

A different view of the reflecting pool.

Lastly, a look down a long, partially-covered corridor leading away from the Watson-Fine Administration Building. It’s very reminiscent of the porch at Kentuck Knob, a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed house in western Pennsylvania.

Once again, I definitely recommend a tour of the Florida Southern College campus if you are in the Lakeland area. Next time, we will definitely take the official tour so that we can see the insides of the buildings!

Happy trails!

Part 2! In part 1, I talked about the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel at Florida Southern College. In this post, I’ll look at the William H. Danforth Chapel, one of the later buildings added to the campus, which is the largest single-site collection of Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in the world. This building was completed in 1955.

The William H. Danforth Chapel is the only use of leaded glass in any of the Frank Lloyd Wright buildings at Florida Southern College.

A closer look at the beautiful windows behind the altar in the church.

The side view. I am most certainly going to go back so I can take the tour and see the insides of these amazing buildings.

You can see here just how close the Danforth Chapel is to the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel.

I have more images from this campus tour to share. Happy trails!

Lots of people that I know sent me this link about a Frank Lloyd Wright house for sale in Minnesota. I spent a bit of time trying to sort out how I could afford it.
