View Out My Bedroom Window, Two Ways

I thought I’d share the view, two ways, from my bedroom window. Pictures were taken with my iPhone.  My small, wonderful home that I named Hastings Cottage and decorated in a rustic, beach-shack style, brings me joy each day. I feel so fortunate to live here. Note, the canvas drapes on the right block the […]

SueBee has a little retail shop!

I’ve been making handcrafts, photo note cards, framed art, and refurbishing furniture for quite a few years. My oldest daughter, Angelika, and I were selling it on the internet via our Artisan Unique website. We determined selling online is far too time consuming, though, so we transitioned. I decided to go solo and test the retail […]

A Collection of San Francisco Doors

Cable car doors, short doors, close-together doors, intricate doors, Asian-inspired doors, uphill-slant doors, religious doors, downstairs doors, brightly painted doors, optical illusion tree doors! I took these photos during my recent visit to the city on the bay, San Francisco. On this particular day, while my son, Andreas, was in a board meeting, his boyfriend, Loren, […]

Playing with Shadows

I captured these shots at and around LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) and the Peterson Automotive Museum on Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles. I switched to B&W to better accentuate the interesting shadows and lines. ~SueBee

Aztec Hotel on old Route 66

When driving from my hometown of Orange a week or two ago, en route to the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, I knew I’d have some time to kill because the Huntington wouldn’t be open until noon. So I detoured a bit, starting in Glendora and over through Monrovia, searching out old Route 66. I’d gone to […]

Palm Springs Riviera By Day

Yesterday’s article captured the magic of the Palm Springs Riviera at night, but I also managed to catch a few shots during daylight hours. Most were taken while waiting for my carpool ride (aka, my son) to pick me up on Sunday. The giant television screen over the lobby bar captured my camera’s attention with its revolving array of vintage, artsy […]

Palm Springs Riviera By Night

I drove out to Palm Springs Friday after work, carpooling with my son, for a Saturday packed with charity events. He dropped me off at the Riviera, where I’d been lucky to get a reservation two months ago. My son was staying with friends who own a weekend home there. Hotel rooms are in demand as the desert’s autumn/winter high season […]

The Glass Church

Set among the redwoods in Rancho Palos Verdes, overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean waters, the famous Wayfarer’s Chapel beckons those who seek the spiritual serenity of nature. Designed by Architect Lloyd Wright, son of the renown Frank Lloyd Wright, and completed in 1951, it’s also known as The Glass Church. According to their website, “the […]

The Gamble House

Touring the Gamble House in Pasadena, a gorgeous example of American Arts & Crafts style architecture, was like taking a walk back in time, a very low-lit walk! New to the time, the electric lighting was dim, the woods dark, windows not quite sufficient for lighting such large rooms. But, the woods were beautiful, the styling very […]

Once Upon a Time

When you walk into an antique store, you walk back in time…you experience history through tangible objects. It’s fascinating seeing knick-knacks, toys, clothing, decor, and art from various eras, all in one place…it’s like several history lessons all in one shopping trip! Despite being from the Millennial generation, I’ve always had a passion for old […]

SoCo, trendy in The OC

So, while the westside of Los Angeles is famous most everywhere, if not the world, for just about everything — from fashionistas flocking, stars clamoring for attention, moguls moguling, interior designers a la extraordinaire shopping, eateries indulging, luxury automobiles parading, paparazzi hovering — the OC is also famous, and for far more than its Laguna […]

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
