shop update shout out and a sneak peak!

hi everyone! happy thursday. over the weekend i did a mini photo shoot of my most recent animal portraits. my cousin has a really nice camera and has a little set up his in garage so i took advantage of it. i think i did a good job as i know nothing really about taking pictures and lighting. it was fun picking out the items around our house for the shot.

my shop has been updated and here are the newest additions! let me introduce to you once again....

 mr. beaumont

a fickle creature mr. beaumont is and a bit of a hermit but he loves the company of his long time friends, a good glass of wine and a good book. he enjoys his solitude in the comfort of his house nestled in the forest of the redwoods. he thought it high time that he commission a portrait to show his true side, humble and sweet.

miss charollete

shy as a tulip but fast as a whip miss charollete embraces her femininity. she loves to spend summer days frolicking amongst the the high grass wearing her prettiest dresses. mother hates it when she comes home with grass stains and burrs in her fur.

mr. stumpleton

rhythm in his bones and a constant tapping of his feet mr. stumpleton plays a mean beat. born into rhythm in blues he knows how to sweep the ladies off their feet and make them wanna swing their hips. be careful, he has a way with words that will make you blush.


also i extended the sale on all clothing until the summer. get it while you still can!!

i have been working away like a crazy lady on my new collection and feeling really inspired and all around giddy about my new collection. i have been showing sneak peaks all week on twitter so some of you have seen other designs. i am working on a name for it as i am not happy with the one i keep calling. it will come, i know it will. oh and as you can see i am also doing come blog redesign too! i think i am a workaholic but loving life!

it is a bit different than my other treasures but i am happy to head in a different direction with my jewelry. any feed back you have for me is very much appreciated!! thanks tons!

I go wild and crazy over wild and crazy necklaces!

  8. that necklace does make your boobs look awesome, way to be on the ball Alicia. I also like HazelandMare's idea of coming up with short stories about each character... maybe they could be characters for a childrens book? So yeah I have no opinions of my own today, I just stole everyone elses....dont judge me

  15. Man do I love your portraits!! I think their bios are amazingly awesome! I need to get a job so I can buy lots of them. Hopefully I'll find one when we get back to Idaho. I haven't really been looking THAT hard for the last month because I knew we were going out of town for a week and that's kind of awkward to be like, "hi, you just hired me but I need a week off, k thanks." :)
