Pictorial meditation

 

Just finished my daily Yoga session. Feeling kind of spacey, no-words just a little pictorial meditation.

Enjoy!

A run through the garden

Had a great weekend up-north- came home to a garden full of surprises.

 Peony flowers are my fave and this yummy shade of red fades to a soft pink in the warm sun. Love, love…

 

Love the wispy stems that end with an explosion of pink. It doesn’t get much better than this…

 

 

chive, chive and more chives, they’ve taken over my garden with a vengeance. I love the fresh green stem topped with a bulging head filled with potential,  just waiting to explode.

This is the end of our tour and the start to a Monday full of potential.

BTW speaking of potential

she’s lovely and listed

Spring vignettes

Just wanted to share the spring vignettes I created, yesterday,  my day off.  Gosh I needed that, feeling recharged and refreshed.

 

 Hydrangea, green and pink, my fave

Lulu, the bust Mr. Java gave me for Christmas, is now dressed in her summer best with a shell necklace and crown that I created just for her.

 A closer look 

 

More collections, creations and books

 More of my shell collection

 

 Green plants in turquoise and terracotta pots with the perfect patina, bohemian scarf and more shells

 

Rustic, nature, and angelic treasures-love

 

Indoor pics with flash, not my fave but you get the idea. Just wanted to share my day of blissful decorating with you.

Hippity Hoppity

Looks like the Easter Bunny is on her way… Can you believe that princess number 2 is six months old? Where does the time go? They grow up way too fast! It’s almost spring… enjoy it!

Love, love this hippy, hippy chic look . I love boho and I wear it often. My premier trunk show/open house is this weekend. I wish you all lived a little closer so you could join in on a little fashionable fun. Wish me luck….

The land of blog

Find the seed at the bottom of your heart

and bring forth a beautiful flower

-shigenori kameoka

Yesterday I attended an all day training for women in politics. It was designed to prepare women to run for office.  I attended to get a better understanding of politics as I am working on a campaign to elect my girlfriend to the house of representatives.  I enjoyed the conference and learned so much more than I had ever anticipated. So much of it could be applied to every day life and business but there was one thing I totally disagreed with. The presenter asked if anyone had a blog, mine was the only hand waving proudly in the air, 50 or so women. I was told it was detrimental to my character and a complete waste of my time. Well obviously she has never experienced the true friendships and undying support shared in blogland.

I understand that if you’re running for office, which I am not, you have to be careful about what you put out in print and every waking moment is focussed on how to get yourself elected but there is something very special here that I would have difficulty leaving behind.

It is in that spirit that I posted the quote above. The land of blog and all of you have allowed a tiny seed deep down in my heart to emerge and blossom into something extraordinary and I thank you for that!

I’m waiting…

Pristine white, quiet, crisp and cold, the stillness of a winter’s storm brings solitude and a restful sleep. But soon that slumber will be interrupted by the warmth of the sun and the emergence of tiny green shoots giving birth to spring. I can hardly wait to dig in the dirt, run barefoot through the garden and display freshly cut flowers on my table. I love the business of birds gathering twigs for their nest. I can’t wait to see something other than white outside my window. I want to feel warmth of the morning sun on my face, go for a walk, shed protective layers of wool and forgo the zippers that shield me from the cold.

 

I remind myself daily that it won’t be long before there are flowers just beyound my door and an afternoon outside will bring sweat to my brow. I’m eagerly waiting…

The softness of a delicate blossom, the sight of newly emerged shoots in a most vibrant shade of green makes the long wait worth while.

sigh…

Happy Friday

{what I love} I love to get together with my  friends and throw a great party, my beautiful children and grand children, sunny days, corona’s w/lime, coconut lotion, my family & friends, a hot cup of mocha, browsing Anthropologie, walking on the beach with Mr. Java and just enjoying life. Oh and one more thing…  big, bold beautiful jewelry…

I love this vintage look made fresh and new, the colors, the style- it’s me!

Be still my heart, I want , I want…

Super fresh and sweet

So cute for spring, I can’t wait for spring!
