It All Comes Around

Karma is a real thing.
While working at the coffee shop,
I helped a few customers, who were short a few cents,
by fishing out the remainder out of
my tip jar.

I always believe it comes back around.
Sure enough, after complimenting
my friend John on his tie,
he rush out and returned with
some of the most delightful vintage ties
I had ever see! 

~Yes, those are real feathers on that tie.~
He told me they were for my fiancé to wear
so that we could look classy for a night out.

Shortly after that,
another regular, Curt walked in
and showed me the most incredible pieces of turquoise
only to tell me that they were a gift.

But wait, there's more.
Not pictured is a book of Renoir postcards
to send to friends and family.
This was a gift from my dear friend Don.

I am so very fortunate to have such wonderful
friends and customers surround me 
in my life. 

Receiving these material items wasn't karma's
way of showing how it all balances out,
it's showing that if you are kind enough to put 
another person in the forefront of your thoughts,
maybe someone else will do the same.

It all comes around~

Carry On

Andy and I are still emotionally exhausted
from the loss of Grandma Hannabelle.
We celebrated her life with 
friends and family,
and began to heal.

Looking through pictures
of her younger years made me
admire her grace in a whole new way.

She was a talented artist as much
as she was a hollywood beauty.

 Just look at this stunning still from her wedding day.

I received one of her handkerchiefs
as a keepsake.
I will forever cherish it,
and through it,
Hannabelle will still be
apart of our wedding day~

If I were to create a religion about how to live a happy life,
it would be based around oversized sweaters.

This time of year brings a swell of joy to my chest,
and it has done well to inspire many pretties from the studio.
Autumnal tones, and visceral lines
are filling the designs in the pages of my notebook.

I thought I'd share one of my finished creations.
It's easy to see that the ring was much inspired
by the outfit I wore and the mood of the day.
Stay tuned for a post 
about the ear studs
that have been in the works.

Go grab yourself something
warm to drink, and breathe in
the scent of a changing season~

This guy is available for purchase.
Email for details if interested.
~much love
