Shopping for the Perfect Piece: Do You Buy it Now or Wait it Out?

Shopping for the Perfect Piece: Do You Buy it Now or Wait it Out?

When you need or want something for your home perhaps a piece of art what's your usual M.O.? Set aside a weekend to shop and find the best solution right now? Or wait it out long-term and invest in the perfect piece? I'm definitely a waiter. And this time, it paid off.

I finally found the perfect piece of art for my house. I have been looking for years for a piece that really spoke to me. I wasn't just looking to take up space on the wall. I wanted something that would add character to the house and have a story behind the photo. 

I recently went to an art show in downtown Sarasota. There is nothing better then being around creative minds and passionate individuals.  As I walked through the art fair I was drawn by the work of Kyle Wilson Left Behind .  His photos have a mission, it is to capture the beauty in everyday objects, the beauty of rarely viewed scenes and present them in a unique way.  There is something said to no staging and capturing the raw beauty.  

My husband and I bought the photo with the name "I will Crab until My heart Stops" I ended up purchasing from Kyle online as another admirer purchased the piece that I wanted at the show.  We decided on 24x36 photo printed on aluminum. No need for a frame as it has a built in hanging device on the back.  The photo has a great story..... Kyle shot the photo with his dad, in Crisfiled MD a big fishing, crabbing and seafood town. His dad shortly retired after the photo was taken. The photo won 3rd place at the NC State Fair this past fall.

I would highly recommend checking out Kyle's work: http://leftbehind.zenfolio.com/ 

The below picture is the one we ordered  http://leftbehind.zenfolio.com/p782673426

Anchoring in a picturesque cove is a great way to relax and enjoy your company on board. It’s an awesome spot to have lunch, a cocktail, or three, and enjoy the serenity of being away from everyone and everything. Stand-Up Paddleboards can still be used and easily be boarded from the boat. We have two fishing poles with Penn reels if you’d like to cast a few lines while the others on board can relax and chat. We are not a fishing charter and anything caught needs to be released but it’s still nice to fish for fun.

Yoga on Siesta Key Beach- Exercise makes you HAPPY!

One of my favorite concierge services to book are private yoga and fitness classes.  To me the perfect morning is waking up pouring a cup of coffee and walking the beach. When on vacation in Sarasota why not do something a little extra special! We have some of the most amazing instructors that will come to your vacation home and take you through a yoga session or a butt kicking fitness session. The best work outs are done in the sand. Imagine your toes in the powdery white Siesta Key sand and your eyes focusing on the blue ocean you might forget that your working out. 

Few Reasons why exercise makes you HAPPY 

  • It releases happy chemicals into your brain.
  •  It makes you less stressed out.
  •  It energizes you.
  •  It boosts your confidence.
  •  It eases anxiety.
  •  It fights insomnia.

This past weekend we had the good fortune to arrange a yoga session with three lovely ladies from New York. The were loving the Sarasota warm weather and white powdery sand!
