The Sea is Calling


Turquoise waters speak to me.  Like a dancer on the beach, they mesmerize me, they calm me, and they want me to pay attention.  I am blessed to live in Cardiff by the Sea, where I get to see the beautiful colors of our beloved ocean every day.  I am thankful for their allure.  Sparkling sea foam and shimmering sands are artfully offered with the moons influence, and the tides are ever changing.  Enjoy the palette of our newest collection Turquoise Waters, and listen for the Sea...I think it's calling you.

There are so many little things to arrange in my life.  I'm always striving for a beautiful aesthetic
around my home and noticing when others do it to my liking.  
A recent trip to San Francisco to visit my best friend Jane, inspired new 
and artful ways to lay out some of my favorite treasures.  
Check out some of the ideas she's loaded up on a Pinterest Board here.  
We had a playful time hanging around her city flat, listening to tunes and shopping.  
Thanks Jane, you and the city always inspire me!

Lily N Me Love


Maybe you know this.  Lily is my dog.  
I don't have children but wear the Lily N Me bracelet to represent her and me.
I love her so much.  A new collection inspired by the little ones in my life, 
ended up being for the big girls too!  
To represent love of you and your daughter, your mom, 
your husband or your dog...
See the NEW Lily N Me pretties online!  xoxo, Lori

DIY: Wire Photo Stands

I recently hosted a big bash for my husbands 50th birthday party and decided to make my own 
photo stands to fill the tables with history and provoke funny stories and conversations.  
These were simple, functional, practically free, and great party favors for many guests.  
Here's what you need:
1.  Rebar Tie Wire, (from Home Depot, less than $5)
2.  Needle nose pliers, (the kind with a cutter)
3.  Rocks from the beach, preferably, flat bottomed
4.  Fun photos

The wire is easier to work with if it's straight.  So first (oops, one more thing you need)
wrap the wire around some sort of steel rod.  I just rummaged around the garage to find this one.
Then secure it to something that is permanently fixed to the ground, and walk out a few feet.
Give it a strong tug and cut it into 15"-30" lengths.
Wrap the wire like a present around the rock, bring up and twist the two pieces together.  
You can twist more to make taller and leave some short to have varying heights.

Then loop, twist some more, and curl away!  There is really no specific design you need to follow, 
just be free and make sure there are places for the photo to sit in.

Line them up on a table for a dinner party, or scatter them around side tables for great ice breakers.  
Have fun and happy twisting!  XO, Lori

Studio Snapshots

Monday's are dedicated to getting all the yucky admin work done around here.
But with my studio in my back yard and these lovely summer days,
I've been posting up on the deck.  
What better way to make the office a retreat!
Below is what the back area used to look like!  Before my husband got after it and created my 
dream studio and beautiful garden.  I tell him everyday how much I love him :)  
Enjoy the rest of these snapshots that were taken as things took shape.

I'll show you around the inside next week!
Bye for now, Lori
