|The gem fair rolled thru the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium and I picked up this|
amethyst candle holder. I think the fire light looks enchanting on the raw crystal clusters.
On overcast days like today, I get eager to return to the cozy confines of my home. Filled with curiosities and treasures, I don't think I could ever reach the point of boredom while stashed away in my apartment. This morning I ventured out to the beach at 5:30 AM to enjoy the salt air and collect "findings," you can follow me on instagram for updates on pretty bits and bobs that I find! While I love to venture out and about to get things done thru out the day, it's home that I always look forward to!
|Lately I've been spinning records at home and mixing my own drinks. It's like they always say, why go out when you could stay in?|
|Simple purple freesia that perfume the house.|
|I have a little collection of seeds that I use for my backyard gardening projects |
and this walnut box was the perfect catch all for the small seed packages.
|More flowers, this time festive dyed daisies in hobnail milk glass vases.|
|A peek at my bookshelves littered with personal objects including |
Russian nesting dolls, a old manual camera (that I used while taking
photo classes in high school), and raw citrine.
|I may love bug brooches (as seen here and here) but I don't love the type of bugs that eat my plants. I've been reading Mother Earth Magazine for tips and tricks.|
|My dad has a bay tree and rather than spend money for the leaves in my local grocery store, I dry out branches my dad brings and I spend a few moments plucking the leaves.|
|This fabulous crystal ball only lived in my home for a couple days but I did enjoy it's sparkle before I delivered it to Sabrina as her wedding present.|
