NEW YORK, NY.-Celebrating 'Ideas That Stick,' Television star Angela Kinsey partnered with post-it brand and publicolor to unveil world's largest Artistic billboard MADE OF post-it Super Sticky Notes. Starting on Tuesday, August 3, Post-it Brand from 3M and not-for-profit organization Publicolor, revealed the winning artwork selected from their national student design contest in a big way – on the world's largest artistic billboard made of multi-colored Post-it Super Sticky Notes in Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall.
Angela Kinsey, Post-it Note fanatic and star of Emmy-award-winning television series “The Office,” awarded the Post-it Brand 30th Anniversary Student Design Contest winners and revealed the largest billboard of its kind, made with more than 100,000 Post-it Super Sticky Notes. The artistic billboard is the focal point of a student art exhibition, free and open to the public from Tuesday, August 3 – Friday, August 6, 2010.
The Post-it® Note was invented as a solution without a problem: Dr. Spencer Silver developed a unique, repositionable adhesive, but the 3M scientist didn’t know what to do with his discovery. Then, six years later, a colleague of Dr. Silver, Art Fry, remembered the light adhesive when he was daydreaming about a bookmark that would stay put in his church hymnal. The rest is history.
Today, Post-it® Brand boasts more than 4,000 unique products, and has become one of the most well-known and beloved brands in the world.
Straight out of the camera, this sunset shot was taken during our recent stay in Hall's Harbour, Nova Scotia. This is the beach at Huntington Point, where I shot the sunset almost every night for two weeks.
This is no stock photo! It's my daughter and daughter-in-law who were married at City Hall, San Francisco in October of 2008, during that small window before Prop 8 passed. Their marriage is considered legal because of its timing, their marriage is considered legal in California but the ruling today can only strengthen their union. This is such a victory for California's LGBTQ community and a step-forward toward a national awareness of this issue as being unconstitutional; not just in California but in all fifty states. A small step, but a victory, none-the-less!
We just returned from two weeks on the Fundy coast in Nova Scotia, where yard art scenes range from delightful to truly weird. The scene below falls into the former category! This was a lovely yard, with pretty gardens and trees, and a quaint and comfortable looking farmhouse.
Enjoy the yard art extravaganza!

We recently returned from two weeks in Nova Scotia's Fundi Shore. The cottage next door to ours has a particularly endearing window view and I wanted to share it with you this week. There will be many photos from this trip submitted to the various "memes", as well as a sort of vacation retrospective later in the week. Enjoy! As always, thanks to Mary for hosting a couple of the best photo-themed memes on the blogs!
In our western Massachusetts U.S.A. garden, we were delighted by a healthy crop of sunflowers in one of our beds in the back garden. We did not have much luck with these yellow beauties in the past. Perhaps it was something to do with the seeds? One thing I find peculiar is that almost all of the sunflowers bend their faces to the north. Whatever their personal preferences, I am partial to the sunflower and I'm thrilled they are liking their home in my garden. Next year, I want more of them!
Ah Sunflower, weary of time, Who countest the steps of the sun; Seeking after that sweet golden clime Where the traveller's journey is done; Where the Youth pined away with desire, And the pale virgin shrouded in snow, Arise from their graves, and aspire Where my Sunflower wishes to go! William Blake
