Eric Grohe creates amazing mural art designed to transform the environment and to endure for generations. He works in cooperation with architects, designers and community representatives to create these masterpieces.  Eric believes that …

his art should involve, challenge and inspire the viewer; not simply adorn, but integrate with its architectural surroundings.

I would love to see this kind of work on some of our drab old buildings in Melbourne’s CBD. Oh how it would lift them, brighten the city and the community.  I would love to see this artwork replace most (or preferably all) the awful grafitti around here. There’s not much more I can say at the moment as I’m in awe of Eric’s magnificent work.  But take a look for yourself at some of his work and see what you think –

Every project is a grand adventure,
if passion for the work and inspiration are your guides.

Welcome to Pink Saturday! 

If you like surrounding yourself with beautiful things then your walls are a great place to start – so, go on, hang some beautiful, decorative pieces on your walls. 

These photos show a gorgeous, long panel print of antique crockery. Just right for that Vintage Chic look.

When the walls are taken care of you can whimsically toss a gorgeous pink lace throw over your lounge chair, couch or bed.

This pink throw is also trimmed with hand-dyed fringing, made to match the lace.

It wouldn’t be the same on Pink Saturday if we didn’t include a picture of some beautiful blooms. These pink lilies looked absolutely amazing – the photo does not do them justice. They stood magnificently in a glass vase at the foot of the alter in the chapel of Our Lady of the Angels.

Flowers like these do last a very long time & would cheer up your home and heart continuously…. not forgetting the lovely fragrance they send out.

… And now for our weekly challenge here are a couple of participants I’d like to introduce you to  –

Mary from Across The Pond

Ann from Ann Fannie’s Green Acres

There are many wonderful entries for Pink Saturday which is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound. Take time to visit other participants’ blogs and see how Pink everyone’s Saturdays can be – you won’t be disappointed.

Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!
