A couple of things...
I was away.
sorry that I didn't let you know in advance.
My Dad got sick and I had to go.
He's much better now.
Picnik.com is closing
I've known about this last bit of news for a while but thought that I had lots of time to work out
an alternative site to edit on....
So the long and short of it is,
no banner photos today.
Just a few select sites to whet your whistle...
Here is Paula McDonough's lovely 'Love Lives Here' Enameled copper necklace. She runs VenBead.etsy and you've probably noticed that I've featured her many times before. She just makes such fantastic stuff, I can't help it! And she makes glass beads AND she's been featured in a couple of magazines, so you've seen her work other places than here, I'm sure. Here's a link to her lovley blog http://www.venbead.blogspot.com/
This Boardwalk to Peace photograph from Florida's CitrusTreeDesigns is dreamy and wonderful! Speaks for itself, really.
but you know I can't allow that!
And it's on a Buy 2 get 1 Free sale! How Fantastic!
Everytime I look at it, my heart runs down the boardwalk to the sand...
Featuring clothes from etsy is always 'tricky' because there are GREAT seamstresses out there who just don't take good photos, so really... there's no real way to know how great they are. I just see their strands in convos and I know that they are trying. I feel for them because getting great photos is something that I struggle with and now that picnik is closing oh, don't get me started!... oh, wait. you didn't ;)
Consistently, though, Israeli seamstresses not only make innovative, breezy clothing; they take really great photos! I love them. Whenever, I 'discover' a new clothing line that I love, invariably they are from Tel Aviv! And nowonder is no different. A whisically themed shop, with a distinct Alice in Wonderland bend, they have dreamy clothes and accesories for those who are just a little 'mad'! Lovely.
That's all for today. I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend!
