Seaside Necklaces

20150430_164505-1

“The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite.”
-Jules Verne, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

As California based artisans, these seaside necklaces with dainty charms capture SoCal beauty. The small glass bottles can store sand from your favorite beach. We recommend adding small seashells as well. The necklace chains are silver and gold plated. They range from 18″-26″. It is part of our Things We Love Collection.

Ebenezer Scrooge Cupcakes

20141214_155157-1

It’s our annual tradition to watch or attend the production of the The Christmas Carol. Although it’s intended for the holiday season, the precept to choose love can be practiced all year long. We created these naughty or nice cupcakes to capture Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation. He declares, “I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”
― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Read These Leaves

leaves

“This is what you shall do: love the earth and sun, and animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence towards the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown, or to any man or number of men; go freely with the powerful uneducated persons, and with the young, and mothers, of families: read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life: re-examine all you have been told at school or church, or in any books, and dismiss whatever insults your soul.”

-Walt Whitman

P.S. These leaves are from our grapevine on a handmade, green throw.
