happy as a clam

How happy as a clam would you be to spend an evening here, sharing New England Clam Chowder and happy conversation? I have always loved homes that are the perfect shade of buttery yellow. What color makes your home happy as a clam?

happily ever after


pve design illustration – june wedding

June is almost over. This is a month that traditionally is full of love and marriage. This illustration was created for a wedding that took place on an island. With love and marriage there is no one person that can attain this by themselves. It takes two to create a strong and passionate love. Tell me, what is the one thing that you are committed to that helps you to live and to love happily ever after?

Sunny Sunday

This sunny spot belongs to this sunny gal over here. Something about it, made me want to draw it and now I just imagine having my coffee or tea sitting out there on a sunny Sunday laughing at something silly.
I got lost in the border and enjoyed myself immensely. Wishing you a sunny Sunday wherever you may be.

happy mail

At last, my happy little postcards arrived and I have been busy sending them out. Be kind enough to e-mail me your address and I would be happy to send you a post-card.
e-mail to pve at pve design dot com. I love sending mail out as much as I love getting happy mail! (nothing like a little shameless self promotion!)
Happy monday.

White Jeans

Model Gisele sporting white denim jeans for Summer
Nothing says Summer better than a pair of white denim jeans.  Gisele is sporting white denim and looks terrific.   Are you a fan of white jeans during the summer?  A model friend of mine says there is nothing better than a fresh pair of white jeans to “mess-up!” 
What brand of white jeans do you love for summer or all year?

slow down

early morning slow down, reading with a friend
When was the last time you actually slowed down, long enough to sink into your sofa with a good book and a dog. I was whirling about the other day, and captured this lovely site, my little girl reading with our faithful companion, Bentley. I could not even get upset that he was on the “good” couch. I mean how is a dog supposed to know which one is good from bad? The light was streaming in, and all was right in my world.

So, tell me, how do you slow yourself down and give yourself permission to slack, to be a loaf, a slug, a sloth and just slow it all down. I am giving myself permission to hurry up and slow down.  Today is the last day of school (yes in the North East school ends the end of June) and it is time to embrace summer and slow down.
