Jewelry as Interior Decor

These looks are inspiring and artistic.

And my bathroom.
Immediately after I took this picture, the nail came out of the cabinet, my jewels crashed to the ground and my favorite one broke. So a word to the wise if you display your jewelry as decor, make sure they're secure.

St. Lucia

In 2006 my lovely parents took my sister and brother and I to the gorgeous island of St. Lucia. It was the best vacation of my life so far.  Just a beautiful place.  And it sounds so good right now, winter is wearing on me.

Yellow & Turquoise

This color combination is really standing out to me lately.
These pretty images inspired this:

Look for this necklace, and matching earrings, in the shop later today.

I like it.

This room is almost the exact shape of my living room.  I'm envisioning the transformation...

What you've all been waiting for I'm sure!  I have finally taken photos of my warm and cozy beads in their finished product.  The Campfire Necklace is up in the store now. 

Happy Weekend!

Grace Potter

She's awesome. Have you heard her? She and her band, The Nocturnals, play a bluesy brand of rock and roll. Grace's voice is amazing and I really love her style. I saw them play at the Dunegrass Festival in Empire, MI this past summer and I was transfixed. Grace Potter and The Nocturnals

And I think that my level of adoration for Grace may have finally convinced me to cut bangs like hers...opinions?

Summer Vacation

Just love this picture taken during a long ago summer vacation in northern Michigan of my Mom and her brothers and sisters.


I haven't posted anything new in a while. I've been at home with my family dealing with the passing of my Gramma. She was a sweet and gentle grandma and a very caring woman. I will miss her deeply.

Erin Tyner

I love these photos by Erin Tyner from her Rainier set. They're like psychedelic landscapes. Also check out the quirky and somewhat mysterious Half Awake set in her Etsy store.
