The Englishman

blogging is a wonderful excuse to not do homework and surf around the web for “good content” instead. This philosophy makes me feel better…since it’s philosophy homework that I am currently neglecting. 

check out the good content I found…

I am not much of a soaps and lotions girl…but these are so creative and interesting. I especially love her paintbox line for men…

My favorite is “The Englishman”

– “A wickedly proper gentleman’s blend of glossy black leather, Earl Grey tea & peaty tobacco. Emphasis on wicked…”

with a description like that who wouldn’t want The Englishman in their shower?

penciled in weekend

good late morning…what are your plans for this weekend? 

mine is pretty busy…I am in a friend’s wedding, it is an evening wedding and should be a lovely time.

life is crazy…I am trying to sign up for fall classes, get my etsy shop open, and find the time to keep writing, creating, and taking care of the things that are important to me. 

hope you all have a wonderful weekend 

ps: remember to check the giveaway from plank yoga designs

back from the dead…

hello all, I am back. 

It would be nice if my blog views would come back from the dead. Along with the little dying seedlings on my living room floor…let me tell you about this rain for the past three weeks…The ground is too wet to till or plant. Farewell sweet rosemary and pumpkins. 

came across new work from one of my favorite artists today while perusing one of my too many newsfeeds…how fantastic is this owl?! I love the colours.

happy spring!

it is only tuesday and im already tired. how does that happen? maybe it’s just the rain and grey skies…or the headlines flashing pictures of the tragedy in the pacific…could be  life and that i want to have more time, for things to be slower. but im blessed, can i even ask for more time…would i even use it well? i have this idea of keeping a projects book…writing down things i want to do, create, and get done in a week…but that will most likely stay just an idea. the weather has started to warm and i really want to start seeds for the summer garden…i want to get my etsy shop open…oh the list goes on.

this week has me feeling like a grain of sand on the lakeshore…

keep the pacific in your prayers.

hi, i really like headbands.

when i was little i would buy bunches of little fabric roses, pin my hair up in layers, and then sprinkle the curls with red roses. eventually i grew out of my “earthen maiden” phase, and it has been quite a while since i have used hair accessories…but now i am starting to crush on pretty little headbands, pheasant feathered combs, and simple pins.

so…i’ve been going about collecting ideas, pictures, thoughts, and pinning them to my new “pretty hair” board.

i would like to make my own peices…someday i will. but in the meantime it’s nice to support other handmade artists… and while exploring i came across this etsy shop that had the most beautiful combs and headbands.

aren’t they lovely?

jill has been designing bridal veils and hair pieces for over 25 years…her shop, Be Something New is a line she started with her daughter…they create all kinds of different hair accessories…perfect for everyday or a special event.

p.s.-they love using vintage materials… and that’s always neat.
