take what you need.

the mini and i were downtown in our old 'hood today - we went to the dentist (it was her first "real" time and she did great, despite only letting the dentist clean only 2 teeth.  yes, that's right.  2.  sigh.) and had lunch with L, and did some urban hiking on the filthy city sidewalks.  on our way back to the car, the little red heart on this poster caught my eye.  and i stopped to read it.  it said:

TAKE WHAT YOU NEED...

and the little pull tabs underneath said things like "peace", "love", "hope" & "understanding".

seriously.

how sweet and COOL is that?  and, obviously, people were stopping to take what they needed, because some of the tabs were gone.

i was tempted to steal the poster, but then stopped myself, because right then, with my daughter, in that moment, i didn't really need anything.

lone spinnerette.



showing off some lone spinnerettes - honestly i didn't think they would "work" as individual rings, but they totally have a minimalist beauty in their own right.  i wore the one pictured in the top image yesterday and it worked perfectly.  sigh.

happy valentine's day!

As the winter winds litter London with lonely hearts
Oh the warmth in your eyes swept me into your arms
Was it love or fear of the cold that led us through the night?
For every kiss your beauty trumped my doubt

And my head told my heart
"Let love grow"


the frolicking of the mumford boys is infectious in this video.  let love grow everyone! happy happy valentine's day!

inspired!

i love it when i get inspired by customer requests.  and here is the product of one of those requests!!!  three twisted bands married to three simple bands.  minimalist, rustic, beautiful... if i do say so myself!  (thanks, sheep!)

(love the way the photos turned out as well - who knew a not-so great paint job would be the perfect backdrop?)
