fleurir | bloom...

EEk...oops....ak. 'Tomorrow' turned into a week. I have absolutely no idea how that happened, if it is any consolation - but I can't quite believe I have been out of this space for so long! It has been a real blink and you miss it week [past] around here....I am sure I am not the only one to feel totally shocked that August is here already!? - I feel like the year is really zipping by.......I actually feel like I have missed most of it. :/

My orchid has decided to bloom - I am assuming to cheer the place up and actually try and convince me that this is, in fact, the summer. Along these lines of thinking [trying to convince myself this is the season of sun]...I bought some Birkenstock sandals, which I am loving!! Funny things is, I absolutely NEVER wear white as clothing...I can't stand it on me, but when it comes to shoes....well, I have quite the penchant for white shoes. Love them...no idea why. I always feel happy in white shoes. Perhaps I should reveal my collection sometime? ;) Am hoping these will be comfy for padding around Paris in a few weeks.....


More white, of the pearl variety....a silver and pearl version of the last wee cluster earrings - available now in the shop - I am planning, and working on some new larger pieces for gallery shows...so to be making some of these lighter pieces is a nice change from that - wiring up beads and pearls is very therapeutic by comparision to normal bench work!!

Well, in my last post I promised some flickr faves - so as not to disappoint, here are some beauties.....hope you enjoy them as much as I have!!
like a dance floor from mav
trip to Taipei from Ta
moonwalk from fox not centaur
hanging up my femininity by caryndrexl

...there were so many more I could share...but this is a nice group for now. I am sure Friday will be here in a heartbeat, and I will show more then.
Oh, and the new issue of Bloom magazine is out, and is about Foliage....guess how MUCH I want it? [go to shop]....mmm.

More soon!
Happy Monday,
xox

So true, our summer is just passing by like the wind...So glad we have some sunshine this month, though today I still have the heating on, just like yesterday.
How lovely that you're heading to Paris again in a few weeks, I would love to see your shoes collection! Love the new pearl earrings, perfect for a wedding.

white shoes make me feel very proper! i think it is because i must walk carefully so i don't mess them up :)

Those earrings are just so beautiful!! Time does always fly in the summer time, doesn't it?

How do you get your orchids to bloom? I need "An Idiot's Guide to Orchid Growing" I think...

Ditto on the white shoes! So fresh!
