A splash of color

I am all about embracing seasonal change. I love using seasonal produce and believe each season has characteristics that make each one special and enjoyable, especially here in Virginia where we can experience all four seasons in a week. Usually around this time of year I see the always eager jonquils making their way to the sky and I start to think of spring time flowers and summer festivals. These are some of my warm weather inspirations that will brighten your mood any time of year!

This Free People exclusive bag by Flock One is perfect for festivals!  

Rio Brillante Bag

Love this chair! So pretty!
I love Mara Hoffman. Her fashion. Her art. She is amazing and so is this bathing suit. Check it out

Throughout the span of recorded human history Pinecones have served as a symbolic representation of Human Enlightenment, the Third Eye and the Pineal Gland. These incredible necklaces are made from pine cones! activate your third eye

These blanket shorts are perfect for festivals! 

 The As Is Blanket Shorts are perfectly paired with knitted sweaters, boots, and your favorite turquoise or silver jewelry.
 In the spring, you'll be dying to pair this with your favorite tanks and swimsuit. 
Each piece is one of a kind and made from vintage serapes.

I AM...

...a daughter of the wild woods, living atop a magical crystal mountain. My ancestry resides in Scottish, Irish and Native American roots. Raised in Virginia nestled in a cradle of unicorns and rainbows, dream catchers, feathers, stones and things that grow. I soak up life through travels, art, befriending the shadows, culture, and heeding the incessant caw and hum of nature.

think openly
create emotionally
love passionately
feel deeply
cook spontaneously
learn constantly
live mindfully

<3 Mara Hoffman^^

Welcome Cosmic Baby

If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!
-Shel Silverstein
