Happy Holidays and Happy New Year

I have been so preoccupied with wrapping gifts in the shop, blogging got dropped off the list unfortunately.    I won't be back at it until the new year as I am taking the next week off to catch up on admin, bookkeeping and inventory.

This lovely video celebrates all that is good in our world.   I wish you a fabulous holiday and everything wonderful in the New Year.   Peace!

Happy Friday

Enjoying my Friday with delicious candy striped kisses.   The perfect nibble of sweet with a touch of candy cane crunch.  Yum!

Lovely Workspace

Love the butterflies up the wall and the 'planning wall' of jewelry maker, Doloris Petunia.   This looks like a good place to spend the day being creative.

African Wax Cloth Armchair

I just had this old armchair that my upholsterer found 'upcycled' in patchwork of African wax cloth cotton and am in love.   Restraining myself from keeping it rather than selling it as I love the mix of color and pattern contrasting with the chips and weathering on the white frame.

Seen and Liked On A Monday

It's been cold.  Well as cold as it gets in LA.  So I am preoccupied with cozy warmth.

New Benches

I love how fabulous these refurbed benches look.  There are two of them and we covered them in a gorgeous old suzani.
