The white on white project. #whiteonwhite, #denimandvelvet
White Velvet is on my mind. And, mashing it up with layers of white follows as I process the redesign of several new spaces. White done right can yield stunning results. Combining textures will assure success. White denim and white velvet look out, I am coming for you!

Flashback for this New England girl.
September 3, 1966
Bobby Orr signs his first NHL contract.
Robert Gordon "Bobby" Orr is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player, widely acknowledged as one of the greatest hockey players of all time.
The two-year deal with the Boston Bruins paid $70,000 plus a signing bonus, giving Orr the top salary in hockey.
Bobby Orr radically altered the style of hockey by introducing defencemen to the offensive side of the game. Prior to Orr, defencemen stayed in their zone, protecting the goal and clearing the puck. Orr scored goals, rushed the puck up ice and set up teammates with precision passing. He was fast, tough, aggressive and possessed the stick handling and shot making skills of a forward.
Prior to Orr joining the NHL in 1966, no defenceman had scored 20 goals in a season in over two decades. Orr did it seven straight times, five times scoring more than 30 and once 46. No defenceman has ever led the league in scoring and Orr did it twice.
No defensive player has ever led the league in assists and Orr did it five times. He played ten seasons with the Bruins and two in Chicago but only played in 47 NHL games after his 27th birthday.
He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1979 at age 31, the youngest ever to be inducted into the Hall at that time. In 1997, The Hockey News voted him as the second greatest hockey player of all time, behind Wayne Gretzky.

Guess how much is the top salary in NHL these days?
Higher...Higher...Higher
Around $14million.
