Meet Me At UniqueLA

Did you know we show at the UniqueLA sample sale several times a year? We just did one this past weekend and as always we had fun getting out and meeting fans and new friends. Do you like my two collages here? One showing our booth and our visitors...so thrilled to see returning customers wearing their HL pieces purchased at the last show. The other highlighting a few of my favorite lines - Bon Bliss baths, amykathryn handbags, and Sophie's Threads. If you are in Los Angeles in the summer I hope you'd visit us at the next show on July 13 + 14 (Saturday & Sunday) in Santa Monica. Make sure you LIKE our Facebook or subscribe our newsletter, you'll get news of what's coming up for us! ;-)

Happy Mother's Day Greeting Card

I was looking for some pretty graphics and hoping to make a card for friends who have recently become mommies. I'm quite happy with these so I thought you may like too. ;-) You know I adore chrysanthemum and butterfly, and just can't resist these cliparts and template from callmevictorian.com. Click image below to download. Each pdf file will create 2 copies of the card when printed on letter paper. Simply score and cut along the center lines. 

Have a wonderful Mother's Day! Enjoy!

Of Love and Gratitude

I once read that if the only prayer you ever said was 'Thank You' it would be enough. Every year around Mother's Day I am reminded how much time has gone since my mother's pass and how much I miss her. Without being too sentimental I do have a lot of gratitude to express, thank you for:

* the mother who brought us here, regardless of what our relationship may or may not be with her.

* the people that love us and protect us on our life journey.

* a little bit of luck that walks with us along our path.

* the immense value of a true friend.

I love to give very simple gemstone jewelry as gifts. Gemstones are delightful to give and they carry a certain characteristic that you can subtly express to the receiver.
Rose Quartz - Gentle Love

Pearl - Gratitude, Motherhood

Black Onyx - Protection

Turquoise - Friendship
To you all, with LOVE,
