How to be free

Monday's inspiring post features the artwork of Dancing Mermaid. I did a previous post on this shop, and I just love the concept of these tiny pieces of inspirational art. The artist collects the rocks from the Southern California coast.

Each piece reads:

~how to be free
~let go of what hurts
~be gentle
~believe in your own magic
~stay open to miracles
~claim happiness
~pay attention to goodness

Pretty reminders, indeed. Enjoy your Monday :-)

That is One {Fabulous Bride}

I found this fabulous bride, Amy, while perusing this post on Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book blog.

Wow. Her accessories are flawless: the vintage style veil; her loosely curled hair; the not-so-delicate beautiful teardrop earrings and beaded necklace; also, the simple makeup still allows her face to be center stage among all of these gorgeous details. And then there's the shoes....simple and glamorous at the same it!

In addition to my Etsy shop, I also have a shop on 1000 markets. (1000 Markets is a collection of "markets" by small, independent, artisan businesses who make and sell unique products). I am a member of 3 markets -The Bejeweled Arcade, The Jewelry Artisians Marketplace and the Ever After Wedding Market. However, there's more to see than jewelry like the Eco Friendly Market and Bath and Body Arcade Market. A wonderful place to discover fabulous stuff! Check it out :-)
