I thought it appropriate this Earth Day to share a quick couple of photos of the art piece my 6 year old made for his "recycling invention" project for kindergarten.
He made a mini sea glass window. Not really an "invention" per se but definitely recycled and it is useful- it makes any window look pretty, especially on a dreary day like today!

I wish I had the time to blog about life in general but I've been so busy with work that this is the best I can offer for now (not that I'm complaining mind you, I am SO happy to have orders coming in!)
FYI the shell and sea glass pendants at the top are all sold, the bracelet focals in the middle are sold/mine (mine is the round one, I'm having Mickey at Nicholas Landon Jewelry make me a leather and pearl bracelet for it, yay!)
The bottom section of pendants will all be going over to Etsy once they're set and polished. Happy Monday, everyone!

As promised, a first look at my newest collaboration! Last December, Mickey Johnson (the super talented designer/owner of Nicholas Landon Jewelry) and I began talks of coming together with our jewelry. Using my bezel set pendants and her intricate and unique style of leather braiding, wrapping and beading we've come together on a new line of necklaces that are now for sale on her website!
Credit to Nicholas Landon Jewelry for all the necklace photos in this post.
Stay tuned for even more details and photos as our collaboration (hopefully) continues to grow!

One starfish and the heart heading to my Etsy shop!
Both seahorses and the second starfish heading to a client... I have an exciting new collaboration coming soon, stay tuned!
make me feel so immensely happy and satisfied? I bought a $25 shoe rack from Wally World and it made my Sunday night! Especially after a certain team (who shall remain nameless failed) to do ANYTHING remotely wonderful to please me...

Inspired by the LOVE sign in the city of brotherly love
Add to that a couple of picture hanger hooks from the junk drawer and a $7 bouquet of tulips split up into several clear glass vases I already owned.
I don't usually "do" Valentine's day. I often feel like so many of the decorations I see in stores are frilly, sparkly and too pink for me. But I'm digging the color red lately so I figured why the heck not? Red is so very Valentine's and the pop against the white brick and turquoise chair lets me feel like my house still maintains it's vibe (i.e. not getting too foo-foo)
Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?
Oh, and a BIG OL' HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my girl Lexi!

Commenter number 10- Lavender Dreamer who said:
"What beautiful jewelry! I just hopped over from Kim's! We decided, since no one was coming to visit....that we would pack a picnic and spend the day on the beach on Christmas day! I think we've started a new tradition! We would love to do it every year! ♥"
Congratulations and thanks to everyone who participated!
