‘Up Up and Away!’ TWA Hotel at JFK

Perhaps it’s my childhood of 1970’s suburban Washington, D.C., as well as my fondness for organic forms in art and architecture. Or maybe it’s my love of traveling to new places. But there’s something about the recently transformed, Saarinen-designed Landmark TWA Flight Center, the TWA Hotel, that makes my heart soar. Growing up in Reston, […]

The MET’s Reopening

While our collective burdens grow heavier nearly by the day, there was one bright spot this past week. I was invited to attend the Press Preview before The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s reopening on August 29, 2020, in its celebratory one hundred-and-fiftieth year. One of my favorite museums in the city because of its generous […]

Francois Halard at Home, Arles: 56 Days in Arles

The world has pretty much opened back up. Living in Queens New York, an early epicenter of the Coronavirus Pandemic in The United States, we were locked down for one of the longest sustained periods in the States for close to three months. And longer for certain types of businesses. It was a time like […]

DREAM TOGETHER: Yoko Ono at The MET

The Metropolitan Museum of Art unveiled Yoko Ono’s message of Hope to New Yorkers and the world in anticipation of its reopening on August 29th after a nearly six-month closure. Two 24 foot x 26 foot banners framing the main entrance to the museum broadcast her message, DREAM TOGETHER, in response to the global Covid-19 […]

Blue Skies: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In August 2015 we traveled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to pick up our daughter who had been staying with Vovó (her Grandmother) for a month by herself. As I find myself in the middle of The Covid Pandemic of 2020 with these two countries at the top of the case counts these pictures of […]

Miami Heat: Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

For years I have been wanting to visit Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida. An unexpected eight-hour layover left us with some time to kill at the Miami airport, and thanks to a rapid air train, we were able to get ourselves right to Vizcaya and back to the airport with great ease. Vizcaya […]

One Morning in France

I have been fortunate to have been called to travel for work in the last few months. I am always game for an excuse to fill my eyes, as in the title of the Diana Vreeland documentary, “The Eye Has to Travel,” inspiration abounds in seeing new things. I only had a few hours on […]

Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life at The New York Botanical Garden

If you are in the New York area through November 1st, don’t miss the Frida Kahlo exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden. After having just previously toured her Casa Azul in Mexico City, visiting this exhibit in New York was such a delight. The NYBG does an incredible job recreating the feel of Frida and […]

Along my Route in Mexico City

In Mexico City for work back in May I had the chance to get to know the neighborhoods of La Roma and Condessa. I loved everything about Mexico City, from the time-worn and colorful architecture, to the vibrant neighborhood streets alive with bustling restaurants and unique shops. I look forward to returning many times to […]

Mexico City: The Frida Kahlo Museum, Casa Azul

While in Mexico City I was lucky to be able to visit the Frida Kahlo Museum and Casa Azul in Coyoacan. I have always loved her as an artist, and seeing her home, studio and newly displayed collection of clothing, personal items and the braces that wrapped her mangled body blew me away. From her bout with polio […]

At the Gardner

While in Boston recently, I visited the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and was pleasantly transported to Venice. I will delight in returning someday to take in the lovely collection. Photography Beth Horta for Sweet Sabelle.

“Let its Trumpet Blow…”

And now at once, adventuresome, I sendMy herald thought into a wilderness:There let its trumpet blow, and quickly dressMy uncertain path with green, that I may speedEasily onward, thorough flowers and weed. ~Excerpt, ‘A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever’ –John Keats Photography Beth Horta for Sweet Sabelle.  

Oh When the Saints

Dreaming of warmer days, albeit in a New Orleans winter. Love how the old architecture is bursting with green life. Even in Lafayette Cemetery. I can almost imagine I was in Paris… Photography Beth Horta for Sweet Sabelle.

Night NOLA

As New Orleans embarks on Mardi Gras tomorrow, I thought I’d share a few pictures from a recent trip to The Big Easy. The city is magical at night, in the rain and misty winter’s air. Photography Beth Horta for Sweet Sabelle.

All for Love
