Like a romp through your favorite vintage haunt my blog is stuffed with an eclectic mix of subjects. Vintage collections, writings, family photos and memories, daily devotion to living well in a world that requires us to recycle, edit and cherish our past and present day belongings. In talks with my dog Angie I'm aware of the basics of a simple code for life. Have respect,honor the past, protect the future.

When someone gives you a hand made gift there is a very special moment when your jaw just drops and time stops.
My moment arrived in the mail around the time of my birthday. Beautiful garnet earrings. The brass wire is gracefully wrapped into hoops and somehow sparkling garnets are attached. I am in awe of them. They are hypoallergenic so I can actually wear them. I have very picky ears.
I don't like my neck but I love my earrings
Look at all the detail
My friend Charlotte made them for me for my birthday .
This is her wearing a pair of my fingerless gloves with her babies her beautiful birds:
