i've been on a real design rampage.
busily collecting bits of inspiration.
just back from a visit with family and friends,
below is what i gathered. a total treasure hunt. the stories
are as follows.
item # 1: geometric design earrings, found at a thrift shop
one afternoon while poking around with my dad, who by
the way is a great shopper!
(much to my moms horror! she thinks they are ugly!)
item # 2: sea urchins given to me by my grandma. they were
given to her by my great grandma, who was a rock hound. she
kept them in an old blue jar above her kitchen cupboards.
item #3: refer to item # 2
item #4: wing earrings excavated from a etsy shop
item # 5: beautiful crocheted necklace, made by my dear mom
in an hour last night!
item #6 Charm from an Ethiopian store in Seattle. I found this
little place with my dear friend by way of an Ethiopian
item # 7 Necklace once purchased by my grandmother
who promises it was expensive and a splurge. Looks
rather fabulously 1980's to me!
So, as you can see I am finding bits of beauty in
even the most odd of places.
