Loving the Boho Vibe

I am just loving the gypsy/boho style! It is so pretty and the lose clothing is cool and forgiving. It is great to be able to wear a entire collection of jewelry at once-on your fingers, arms, around your neck, your waist and even your boots.

Here is a collection of fresh finds recently listed in my Etsy shop.
Hope you like them!

One Kings Lane Southwestern Jewelry Sale

Get Ready!!! One Kings Lane will host a HUGE Southwestern jewelry sale, this Tuesday Evening at 6:00 PM Pacific Time-That's March 10, 2015.

We have all been traveling and collecting all winter for this sale. I have over 250 fresh Vintage Navajo, Zuni and Hopi Indian as well as Vintage Mexican finds scheduled for this event. I even added several pieces from my personal collection.

Here's a sneak peek of some of the loot that has never been offered before. Be on line and ready to buy as soon as it opens because buying gets fast and furious and there is nothing more maddening than having something you want "on hold" in another buyer's cart.  Don't be late, or you could miss out. Here's a secret: if you see something that you really want that is on hold, pull up a separate screen on your computer with that item and keep refreshing. Most buyers can only hold an item for 10 minutes, so keep an eye on it and as soon as it drops out of their cart, grab it before they can get it again, or before someone else does.

You can visit my store here, but you won't see these items there until 6:00 PM, Tuesday Evening.
As soon as I have a link to the event, I will post it here too.

Good luck and see you there. I will be packing and shipping all day long to get your purchases to you FAST!

This is my horse, Red. I adopted him at the end of October, 2014. He is a Polish Arabian. He was a little girl's show horse for many years. She grew up and lost interest in him. He stood in his stall for two years, waiting, with no one paying attention to him.

I am so lucky to have the opportunity to adopt him. Ever since the day that I met him, he has never had another lonely day, and neither have I.

He was so beautiful when I met him, but very out of shape, with a sagging top-line and a jiggly neck.
No-one took care of his long red mane and it was tangled into knots, so they chopped it off and it stuck up like a rooster.

He learned to be a really good trail horse, even though he spent his life in the show ring.

We rode with a group of horses last week, on a blustery day as a storm was coming in. There were two very nervous horses with us and Red stayed calm and cool, being a good companion horse for the others. You would never have know that this confident Arabian has only been a trail horse for 4 months.

I am so proud of him. He's such a great friend!

Here are some before and after photos of him. The two on the left were taken Nov. 1. The two on the right were taken March 1.  You can't see his mane in the March photos, but it is twice as long now. It should be beautiful by the end of summer.

Isn't he coming along great?

Vignettes and Seashells

I visited one of my favorite shops last week called "Vignettes". It is located in Ocean Beach, CA. Wonderful displays, amazing finds.
Here are some of my favorites:

What a creative use for vintage costume jewels. I have a few pieces, but this one is sterling and an Eisenburg piece.

Wouldn't this match perfectly?

Such a creative piece of seashell art!!

You can find these in my etsy shop:
