Tumbleweed

I stumbled upon the most amazing piece of jewelry. The kind that I want to be making once I get my work space up and running the way I need.

Tumbleweed cuff is beautifully fabricated, earthy and full of mysteries and healing. I can’t wait to wear it!

Turqoise
Turquoise is the healing stone that attunes our physical selves to the highest realms. It helps us to better understand ourselves and to bring our ideas and emotions under control so we can see them become fruitful in our reality. You have but to stop and listen, be still and be ready to hear the truth about who and what you are. Only then will you obtain your full power. Honored by the native Americans as a sacred stone, the gemstone absorbs negativity, transmuting it into useful energy. It also helps you to become one with the universe.

Yay for me!

I bought a new bell and handle bars from PublicBikes.com and picked them up today at their local warehouse. They are awesome. There is nothing else to say.

I have a new friend!!

I have learned how to sew when I was a little girl in Prague. Then I stopped for some time to focus on other things, mainly going to punk clubs and trying to get the boy I liked to like me back. :-)

I have wanted to get back into sewing for some years now, so finally I bit the bullet and got a new machine. I found a great deal on this Singer on Amazon and can’t wait to put it to work.

My first projects will be new awesome pouches for my jewelry and play pants for Kaleb. I also see a beautiful 1970’s maxi dress in my near future, oh and these monkey pants!

Lemon wedges love

It is no secret that I love Anthropologie. When I was pregnant with my son, I was asked at my birthing class to imagine a beautiful, peaceful place to labor in and  I imagined the downtown San Francisco Anthro store.  Believe me, if they offered the option to give birth there, I would have.

So I was thrilled to have received my yearly birthday discount coupon from them. These super comfortable, bright wedges are the first shoes I have ever bought there, they go great with my 70’s flare jeans.

I have been bad…

I have to confess to a crazy splurge purchase of last night.

Couple of weeks ago my friend Annie showed me a bag by Scout & CATALOGUE that she likes. Everything in that store is gorgeous. I sadly can only barely afford a scarf right now. I picked one that I know will become my wardrobe staple for a long time. It is the most expensive purchase I have made on Etsy to date, and I sure hope that it will be worth it. If not, it’s all Annie’s fault… :-D

Honey!

When I walked into the lobby tonight, I got super excited because there was a box with my name on it. At first I thought that it was some of my jewelry supplies, but then I realized that it was THE LOCAL HONEY that I ordered last week. I’m what one might call a honey-whore. When I see honey at a farmers market  I want it, when I travel to places near and far that offers local honey, I need it. This was no exception. I found Noe Valley Honey on Etsy and featured it on my postcard last week. Noe Valley of San Francisco that is. It brings me joy to imagine the little beehive in somebody’s backyard in our city. It surely gives wanting to have my own chickens a whole another perspective.

I have a special place for bees in my heart. The love started when I was a little girl growing up in Prague. We have seasons in the Czech Republic and during the very early Spring, the sun would be out but didn’t have much strength yet. You would see bees outside trying to wake up from their winter nap and fly, but they couldn’t because their wings would be stuck together from the cold. I would walk around with my grandfather saving these early-risers by taking them very carefully into the palm of my hand, and slowly blowing warm breaths at them until their wings warmed up and they would fly away.

I have been thinking about moments with my grandfather since he passed away couple of months ago. I have been missing him a lot and I realized how much he taught me through little experiences like this.
