{mini-view: blog milk...}

happy {last} monday of august everyone! what…a…month! i’m listening to the gladiator soundtrack as i write this post. did i ever mention that i stop the bus for great movie soundtracks? (am i alone in this infatuation?) anyway, it’s putting me in an inspiring mood, as only a gladiator movie soundtrack can do. [smile]

today i have another great mini-view for you. please help me welcome ana of blog milk to the blog. if you remember, ana helped me put a pretty dress on this blog last month by way of her beautiful blogger templates and handled all the technical nitty-gritty to get it installed. (thank you again, ana!) ana’s own blog is brimming with visual goodness, engaging topics, amazing design, and tips, you must add it to your reading list. (psst, she also creates the most beautiful moodboards, hands down.) without further ado, herewith is ana’s mini-view:


ana, thank you so much for taking the time to share these images and answers with us today, giving us a glimpse into your creative world. please keep up all the wonderful, inspiring work you do. 

ps~we survived the weekend and pulled off a rather successful fifth birthday party. thank you for all your heartfelt and supportive comments on friday's post. you guys rock the casbah! happy monday and new week everyone!

  1. Great interview! I am a huge fan of Ana's work! I like the fact that she puts "Le" in front of everything. I do it too but it sounds like she's got me beat.

    You are not the only one who loves soundtracks I'm obsessed with them! I've been slipping a bit but you're reminding me that I need to get on the ball again. Devil wears prada and Prime are at the top of my list.

  2. Oh Ana is great!  I won a blog template from Blog Milk (the one I still use today) and really like how it made my blog look and feel

  3. Love using "le" in front of things, too! I can't seem to shake that habit either. Another great mini-view, Theresa! You sure do have Mondays totally down now between these mini-views, the muse posts, the moodboards, and your new guest-series of people's favorite things! I always have something to look forward to on Monday mornings at work :) 
    Ana did a great job on your blog design. And I love movie soundtracks, too! Always have, since I was a kid and had all the Disney movie soundtracks. My favorites are the Cinema Paradiso soundtrack and the Thomas Crown Affair soundtrack. And the Harry Potter movies, specifically Order of the Phoenix. Oh! And the Shakespeare in Love soundtrack. Wow, guess I never realized how much I liked them before. :)

    Movie soundtracks are awesome. There are many I love, so no, you're not alone!!
    I'm with Erin on Cinema Paradiso, which BTW, is one of my all time favourite films! I can watch it over and over again.

    T, am so happy the B'day bash went down well. I'm sure your heart feels lighter today x

  11. This is great, Therese! Thanks to your earlier mention of Ana we've corresponded a bit. She sounds like a lovely person. As for soundtracks...Amelie makes me fill up. The whole darn movie (plot, actress, interiors, outfits) just wow-ed me. 
    Have a great week.

  12. Oh, wonderful Mini View Theresa. The colors in this post are particularly appealing to me, and she did such wonderful work on your blog. A true inspiration. I'm trying to surround myself with more of those, so I'm definitely adding this to a place I'll check more. Thank you dear. xo

  17. Thanks, Marit. Oh, you won't regret downloading the Gladiator soundtrack. There are no words, just music, so it's great for writing.

  18. Ana did a great job on your site, Tori.
    So, glad I'm not the only one. Though, I probably should have already known you all loved soundtracks as much as me. Devil Wears Prada, going to give that one a proper listen.

    ReplyDelete
  19. You won your template? Lucky! I agree, it's the perfect match.

  20. Ha-ha, I really do have my Mondays sorted out. Gee, what am I going to do when there are five Mondays in a month (October)?! Oh my goodness, you just gave me so many great soundtracks to look up. Cinema Paradiso and Shakespeare in Love sound really interesting. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, that's another vote for Cinema Paradiso. I must give this one a listen. I did see this movie years ago. I think it's time to see it again.
    PS~The bash went really well. Everyone had a great time. My heart does feel much lighter...Just writing that post and then reading everyone's comments made my heart feel lighter.  Thank you, Tina.

  25. Oh, you must, Jin. Ana's blog is brimming with visual inspiration and thoughtful topics. You should also take a look at her Blogger templates...Think you might find one you like. :)

  26. Oh, nice to know you two connected. Nothing makes me happier.
    Can you believe I've never seen Amelie?! I better remedy this situation.
