That Summer Feeling

Finally, summer is upon us. The hot sun blazing away, breathing fresh life into mother earth with fantastic blooms and lush green grass. It's a colorful time of year, it's our favorite time of year. Sweet bird songs fly through the air, their melodies charm our imaginations. We cant help but drift off into a summer time day dream, filled with palm leaves and tropical flowers, and the ocean singing it's lullaby of hushed waves. That summer feeling. No matter how old we get this season seems to carry a certain sense of freedom. It's that time of year when we finally give into the wanderlust we've been feeling for so long. We let ourselves get a little wild.

Our latest creations were inspired by that magical summer feeling. Made with vibrant gemstones, colorful fringe, bright wool weaving, wood beads and of course, lot's of shells! All it's splashy textures are sure to transport you to a tropical place in your mind. This collection has a certain beachy vibe, kind of washed ashore feeling, that goes perfect with a pair of cut-offs and your favorite old tee. It's the kind of jewelry that you can easily throw on, layer up in and hit the road for a perfect summer adventure.

Be sure to stop by the shop and check out the latest collection.

Happy Memorial Day!

 A few weeks ago we headed out to upstate New York for a wedding. Being the wanderers that we are, we took our time on the drive there and back, stopping in cozy little towns to explore. We discovered all kinds of amazing antique stores in Western Pensylvania. Amidst a maze of gorgeous antiques that seemed to go on miles, I found a bright red, vintage huffy bike. It was love at first site. Not only was it super inexpensive, it is in tip top shape! And what kind of crazy artist lady would I be if I didn't immediately take her home and decorate her?!

I filled my bike basket with my favorite little antique bottles, overflowing with fresh flowers of course. I grabbed one of our gorgeous, new kantha throws, put on my most summer-in-the-70s outfit, complete with tons of (new) SoulMakes jewels, and went out for a little stroll! I felt like queen of sunshine cruisin around on this bad boy. There's such a sensation of freedom and a bit of child-like wonderment that comes with riding a bike. Also, I couldn't resist the American Flag top for Memorial Day! Hope you all have a gorgeous long weekend!

I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free
And I wont forget the men who died, who gave that right to me

I'm wearing:
Jewelry - SoulMakes (and a few vintage turquoise rings)
Crochet Flag Top - Lux Clothing
High Waisted Shorts - Free People
Belt - vintage
Straw Hat - Ikea (yes, Ikea. It was $3. What can I say?)
Antique Glass Bottles full of flowers & Kantha Throw in bike basket - SoulMakes
Also,  the adorable little flag attached to my bike is new in the shop!

We just got some gorgeous new kantha throws, in vibrant spring colors, with lots of fun patterns and floral prints. These comfy, light weight beauties are amazing doubling as picnic blankets. Our Mahali Market Baskets are the perfect picnic accessory. These unique baskets are made from wood, covered in vintage fabric and adorned with the most adorable antique goat bell. They make perfect little fruit baskets! And what picnic would be complete without flowers?! Our antique glass bottles make for unique spring time vases! Why not hang a few colorful wall hangings in a tree for a special pop of color?! As an added bohemian touch and extra good vibes, add a few of our crystals and conch shells and voila, it's a beautiful day for a picnic!
