Are these the most adorable little earrings ?
Little Copper Wheels are handmade by Cris of IOMISS Jewelry. Their colors and slightly distressed caps appeal to my love of all things rustic! A stroll through her esty shop reveals a wonderful selection of feminine earrings and necklaces with a geometric and sculptual flair. Cris's choice of color and materials captures a bold sense of style along with a little romance as well! Drop by IOMISS and enjoy!

This pretty pale green dish is one of my favorites!
Intricate dishes (the Japanese Hanamoyou is a work of art!), mosaic balls, a cool mannequin and this sweet watering can are just a sample of Kerrin's talent and beautiful pieces!
Funky magnet sets come in colorful themes that are just plain FUN!

Yesterday was a glorious spring day in our part of the world ~ soft sunshine, greening grass, plumping lilac buds and the first float in the miraculous, awakening parade ~ Crocus! My garden invited me out all morning until I finally heeded the call, turned off the computer, put down my beads and wire and went out to muck around! Raking, digging, pruning...it was a flurry of sticks and leaves and old boughs from a Christmas wreath...all into the compost to reveal a fresh stage for my bold purple crocus!

Vintage with a modern vibe, sculptural, a visual feast to behold....these only begin to describe the creativity and artistic talents of Kathi Roussel. Her Etsy shops, kathi roussel jewelry and 5gardenias are filled to the brim with her breathtaking pieces and collections ~ I am totally addicted!
Kathi's talents also clearly lie in her exceptional photography ~ her use of color, light, focus ~ and the charming stories told through the props which perfectly cradle her pieces. I am inspired and lifted by her amazing gifts! Enjoy your own delightful journey through her shops...may you be inspired too!

Whimsical...magical...playful...Mossies! I simply adore these little fairies and gnomes created by Liz of Two Left Hands! Flowers, fairytales, monsters, animals and other characters spring from her amazing imagination and sewing needle and inspire me to remember how important it is to just have fun.
