Dandelions by AnneSolfud

I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas.  They've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.
~Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

Dream BIG!
Happy Wednesday, sweet friends!

I have been SO busy gearing up for the upcoming holiday season.  I've had a crazy streak of inspiration for the last few months, so I've been creating and just waiting until August to start listing my new Autumn line.  Here are a few of my favorites, now available on

~ A few of my favorite things ~

Autumn Hues by Peacesofindigo
One of my favorite things about is creating treasuries. It's so much fun to create a collection of art from the amazing variety featured there.  Here are a few of mine from this week.

This one is rustic and lovely and reminds me of one of my favorite places, New Mexico. And I actually had a pet lamb as a child, so the lamb in the kitchen photo just makes me happy.

This one is mysterious and romantic.

Shelley's Love's Philosophy by pressedufour
I'm sharing a little romance today.


The Fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single,
All things by a law devine
In one another's being mingle -
Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss high heaven
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdain'd its brother:
And the sunlight clasps the earth,
And the moonbeams kiss the sea -
What are all these kissings worth,
If thou kiss not me?

Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

Happy Wednesday!

Shakespeare quote tank by neenacreates
Screen printing fascinates me.  Here are a few artists that screen print their own artwork onto clothing.  This shirt has been on my list of favorites for quite a while. I adore Shakespeare and her design is perfectly romantic.

Rose cut sapphire rings by Peaces of Indigo
I've been on fire with creativity designing my Autumn 2011 collection.  These rings are just a few of the rose cut sapphire rings that I created.  Each is one of a kind and has a special message handwritten inside the band.  Made using recycled fine silver, they are perfect for engagement rings, wedding bands or a precious gift for yourself or someone you love.

Le chemin des dames by YannPendaries

Wouldn't it be lovely to pack a duffel bag, grab a camera and travel the world taking photographs? Or you could just see the world through the eyes of an amazing photographer.  Yann Pendaries lives in Paris and his fine art photographs have a magical quality to them.  They make me want to pull a Mary Poppins and jump into the lovely world that he captures on film.
Day 2 Paris Montmartre by YannPendaries

You can read about his amazing hot air balloon project on his blog, follow his artistic endeavors on facebook, and see his lovely work in his etsy shop.  Enjoy.
Happy Tuesday, sweet friends!
