Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Lotus Flower Beaded Purse

While I was out west in California for the Christmas holidays, I spent a few days in San Deigo, where I visited the historic Hotel Del Coronado, a luxury resort property that’s right on the beach. The Hotel Del, as it is known, has an amazing and colorful history that goes back to the late 1880s and it is arguably San Diego’s most famous landmark building. It was also once known as Hollywood’s Playground, so it is not much og a surprise that their gift shop sells all kinds of fancy stuff like this simply breathtaking Pink Lotus Blossom Handbag by Mary Frances handbags, which I would wish to own.

This special little bag can be purchased in the Hotel Del Coronado gift shop, online from Mary Frances handbags, or from Amazon for $298.00 (worth it).

Carole A. Feuerman’s Hero and Leander at C24 Gallery

C24 has been one of our favorite galleries since we first discovered it with This Exhibit almost three years ago now. And the long wait we endured for the gallery to move into its new bi-level space, just half a block west of the previous West 24th Street location was well worth it, because with its cool new lower floor atrium, C24 can now showcase some truly monumental pieces, such as the hyper-realist sculptures of Carole A. Feuerman.

Feuerman is a pioneering figure in the world of hyper-realistic art, as well as her new approaches to sculpture with painted bronze pieces for the outdoors and in water. The artist works in both miniature and monumental size sculptures. We were first introduced to her work at the Jim Kempner Fine Art Gallery a few years ago, and since then we’ve seen her work in public spaces and art fairs as well — her iconic stye being immediately recognizable.

The new exhibit, Hero and Leander takes its title from a Greek mythological story of Hero (a priestess of Aphrodite) who lived in a tower off a waterway, and Leander (a young man from the opposite side of the strait). Leander fell in love with Hero and would swim very night across the waterway to be with her. Hero would light a lamp at the top of her tower to guide his way. These trysts lasted through one warm summer. On a stormy winter night, the waves tossed Leander in the sea, while the breezes blew out Hero’s light. Leander lost his way and was drowned. When Hero saw his dead body, she threw herself over the edge of the tower to be with him in death.

If you are like me, you are trying to cram as much summer fun into the remaining few weeks of summer as possible; and it’s always rewarding to take advantage of the nice weather by spending time outdoors while you can do so wearing as few items of clothing on as possible! Outdoors, yay!
