This weekend, regardless if you are in Louisville, Los Angeles or Lincoln, Nebraska - grab this timeless feminine adornment and wear it proud. Maybe it's a way we can all have our own personal Grandstand whenever we need it.

We're talking about the annual C.M. Russell Art Auction. But this year is a little different, as the C.M. Russell Museum has branched off from the auction and will, for the first time ever, be hosting its very own art sale and auction called “The Russell," which will solely benefit the Museum.
Brilliant artist Rocky Hawkins will be showcasing his dynamic work at this exciting new event.
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

C) We want to give some suggestions for a really great and "Green" weekend.
D) With so many amazing forms of ART and design using existing or recycled materials we just had to talk about it.
As for your "celebratory" weekend beverages . . . why not reuse them when you are done, like artist/designer Mark Roeder did.
Now there are a few things we all hate to do on the weekends - like laundry.
But if you are really inventive (and lazy) you could attempt to recreate this piece of furniture art titled "Meltdown" . . . because you know we have all had that one load of laundry that pushes us over the edge.

March is the month where the longer days begin melting the frozen landscape and a world we have forgotten (buried under months of snow and ice) reveals small parts of itself. March opens up the rabbit hole, disorienting us with the potential of a new season. Like most of the characters in Alice In Wonderland, March is never what it seems. It teases us with brief moments of warm weather and small glimpses of grassy earth. But as frustrating as this journey might be -- for both Alice and all of us struggling for the "real" spring -- it is also an exciting time with adventures to be found and old treasures to be rediscovered.
The musical artist A Fine Frenzy puts this perfectly with their new video for "Lost Things."

Her teammate Julia Mancuso is really incredible as well. These fierce ladies captured gold and bronze (respectively) on Wednesday, and it was just their first day of racing!
And let's not forget Shaun White! He cemented his status as reigning world snowboard champion with a gold medal and his buddy, fellow US Team member Scotty Lago, followed right behind with silver.
You could say the U.S. Ski and Snowboard teams have had a pretty good start to the Olympics! Obviously these athletes create beautiful ART through their incredible athleticism and style. But what we really started to become OBSESSED with was how awesome ski and snowboard designs have become in the last few years. It has taken on a life of its own and become a way for athletes to creatively and ARTistically express themselves. Snowboard and ski designers have earned their place as truly respected artisans.
Just take a look at the evolution of this remarkable ART niche . . .
I also found an incredible website where you can even design your own snowboard! Check out rideharder.com to create your own snow-gliding masterpiece!
Here are a few snowboards inspired by some of our favorite artists' work (click on the images for a larger view!).
