Spring weather has me thinking about outdoor living...grabbing a good book, cheese and bread, a little wine...

Rhinestone Gypsy

Presenting Rhinestone Gypsy - a mother/daughter team that I discovered on Etsy.  They make these fantastic mixed-media "spirit dolls".  Colorful and full of life, I just love their work!  Check them out at their Etsy shop .

Today is a gorgeous, sunny day, and I've been doing a little spring cleaning...but I think my cats have a better idea!  Here they are taking over my bed...
Guess Luna likes my novel, too.

April in Paris

My first trip to Paris was during the month of April...so, when April rolls around, I get Paris Fever.  Here are some photos I took on that trip...the weather was cloudy and moody...just perfect.  Vive la France!

David Tishbi

Time to highlight another of my favorite jewelry designers:  David Tishbi.  Based in Israel (so many talented jewelry designers seem to come out of Israel), David's work has a worldwide following.  I just love his modern, organic style...what do you think?
