I went window shopping today while waiting my my headache medicine to work (and basically, it's like taking Chicklets), and I found some real lovelies and I thought I'd share my taste. (And OOOOH the pain when I saw that some of the things I hearted were sold. Agony.) But! Enjoy!
"Gleaming Curiosities - Savoy Truffle" by Bullfinch & Barbury
These are my favorite colors, and would complement my upcoming hair color change for fall sooo well. And I love the fabric and fiber!
"Sea Urchin Collection -- White Swag" by Star of the East
People. This is what I mean when I say I just don't have that "special something". But I sure appreciate it in others! I long for this. Isn't it gorgeous???? I admire this artist so much. Puffy heart love and admire.
All right, this is one that I'm mourning has sold. It's made by Lune Designs, one of my favorite jewelry designers. I actually own one of her awesome turquoise necklaces. But OH the colors and textures of this bracelet! Sob.
"Star Seeker" by All That I Am
I'm generally not a ALL the goddess type, but something about this necklace really spoke to me, and I love it. Maybe it's that vintage blend of colors. Maybe it's the mix of various styles and textures. I don't know. I just know it when I see it.
"Chain of Hearts" by Cassie Donlen
I'm sure a lot of you know Cassie. I have a necklace made by her and I've bought a number of beads from her -- but this bracelet? It totally speaks to me. I'm normally all bright in my colors, but this -- I like the bit of mute. I love it. Sigh. So much talent all over this page.
How about one more?
"Chocolate and Peach" by Lagoa Design Studios
Over the top? Yes. Would I wear it? Oh indeed I would. And I'd wear it with a t-shirt and jeans, too. To heck with waiting for a special occasion. LIFE is a special occasion.
Everything I've shown here I'd wear. I just can't swing any of it right now. It's tuition time, yo. But looking at them makes me inordinately happy -- don't they you? Knowing there are people who can DO things like this, who can dream them up, makes me happy. It's how I feel when I lie awake at night and make up stories in my head. When I do that, I know NO one else has those stories -- they're mine, and if I put them on paper just so, they'll captivate just as much as these piece of art. Of course, you can't wear a piece of paper, darn it, and one day I hope to be able to own some of these things, or things like it, but for now, take a look at these lovely stores and enjoy!
