Saint Patrick's Day

With the Irish festival of St. Patrick's Day just round the corner, what can be more fitting than celebrating the color green!!!!
     I love the ethereal quality this lime green candle creates in my sister's foyer. And I simply adore the gorgeous green tote bag that looks absolutely stunning with the raw silk tunic top (both designed by my talented sister). I can just picture myself in this ensemble walking the boardwalk in a luxurious resort....

Necklace with green turquoise

I love wearing and making jewelry using natural gemstones. The green turquoise stones mixed with the dark, cinnabar beads and the shiny, silver beads turn them into a work of art. It was a lot of fun creating it!!!
Did you know that the ancient Egyptians wore green eyeliners? Because they believed that green was healing  for the eyes.

Harmony in green

With spring in the air, the long dark days of winter blues are a thing of  the past!!!! We want to celebrate life with the color  green surrounding us everywhere. "Green" signifies growth, harmony and healing. Let's celebrate spring with mother nature with a lightness in step and a carefree heart.
   I like mixing colors with texture. I like the contrast between the wooden container and the shiny brass with the color green.
     The maidenhair fern in the weathered grecian urn livens up a dark corner of my foyer!!! I love the timeless effect it creates.
