Enjoying the Five Senses: The Stylish Blogger Award

Kelly T. Keating, of the extremely stylish blog The Great Within, www.thegreatwithin.org has honored Porcelains and Peacocks with the Stylish Blogger Award. In response the honoree must tell seven aspects of themselves and favor ten other bloggers with the award.

In lieu of seven items, I offer five images that stir my senses:
Sight: James McNeil Whistler, Nocturne en bleu et argent
Sound: Tim Buckley, Goodbye and Hello
Taste: Vinho do Porto
Smell: Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Mimosa
Touch: David Lynch, Blue Velvet

For symmetry I've listed five stylish blogs that I enjoy. They are in random order:
1. It's About Time http://bjws.blogspot.com
2. Designed Squared http://ashfieldhansendesign.blogspot.com
3. A Discourse on the Arts and Sciences http://www.adiscourseontheartsandsciences.net/blog
4. Art Inconnu http://www.artinconnu.com
5. A Journey Round My Skull http://ajourneyroundmyskull.blogspot.com

  3. Kendra-

    Thank you for the mention of our blog!

    We have been somewhat remiss in posting lately so I'm glad someone is still reading!

    As always, your blog is divine!

  4. Thank you David, I look forward to seeing you at "Market" this week! Best, Kendra

  5. Congratulations on your Award, Kendra. I was only listening to Tim Buckley's 'Song to the Siren' a couple of days ago...it was the theme song of a very disturbing movie we'd just watched, 'Candy'. I'll go and look for 'Goodbye and Hello'.

  6. Thank you Alaine, A college boyfriend turned me onto Tim Buckley and I still find his music magically haunting. I also love his Blue Afternoon album. Best, Kendra

  7. Congratulations Kendra!

    I must check out Tim Buckley and the blogs you mentioned I am not familar with yet. However, I highly agree with you on your mention of Design Squared.



  8. Hi Claudia, Tim Buckley was an American visionary vocalist and musician who died at the age of 28 in 1975. His voice and lyrics have an ephemeral beauty that I always come back to. xo, Kendra

  9. Thanks Kendra :)

    I follow and really enjoy your blog too.
