weekend recap and gratitude

This weekend was a nice relaxing weekend. We started it by going to see Chuck Negron and his band, if the name sounds fimiliar, its because he was in the band Three Dog Night, and they had quite a few hits in the 60's and 70s, such as "An Old Fashioned Love Song," “Joy to the World,” “Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog,” and “One (Is the Loneliest Number)," which is my personal favorite. It was a great show! I am so grateful that I have had the pleasure to enjoy and listen to such amazing bands, groups, and talented individuals so close by to me.

And I am grateful and happy for the lovely gift I received of black suede and fringe Minnetonka sandals, which I have been wearing non-stop.

I spent the rest of the weekend getting new pieces ready for my 1 year Black Feather Anniversary which is on Monday, August 6th, and I will be having a big sale for my lovely supporters.

I am also working on my fall collections for Black Feather, the two lines will consists of a gypsy rock line, such as the hand carved quartz skull, and the second line will feature more earthy and natural pieces. I am working on hand made clay beads for necklaces and bracelets.

And I am also working on skulls for Dia de los Muertos for my peachy cheek shop.

Have a lovely week!

Back from NOLA

I recently returned from a trip to New Orleans. Here are just a few of the many photos I took while I was down there. I should be posting more photos soon!

I was able to spend some time exploring New Orleans. And just let me tell you it was the most amazing experience. Not only was I introduced to wonderful food, culture, music, but everyone I met was so polite, kind, and generous.  I now completely understand what it means by "southern hospitality". 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week!

weekend recap

 Here are some photos of this weekend. It was gorgeous and perfect for a hike and picnic. We got some yummy wraps packaged them up and went for a hike and once we got to the top we enjoyed a nice scenic picnic!
I also was able to work on some new jewelry pieces that I will soon be adding to the Black Feather shop, like carved skulls made out of amethyst and quartz.

Have a great week!
