Vintage Mannequin

 Bought this vintage torso at an antique shop in Prescott.  It fits perfectly in the space between the bookcase and the doorway.  Perfect for displaying long bead crochet necklaces.
I was so happy unearthing this treasure, I didn't care about carrying it two blocks to my car.

Textured Knitting

A little textured knitting.  Organic shapes and lots of holes.   I am so drawn to to deconstructed clothing with its raw, frayed edges, weird seams, exposed linings, etc.  And, I LOVE making something like this with its different stitches, open holes, raised and ruffled spots, looped and bubbled rows.

Holiday Sparkle

 At Arhaus, I walked around a corner and there was this colorful, sparkling chandelier hanging over a small coffee table.
The fringe.  The fringe was so unexpected.  Substantial, yet delicate, filling the space, but hardly there.

 More inspiration from Arhaus.
 The lighting.  Oh, the lighting….take your breath away lighting.
Classic, elegant, whimsical, rustic…….and more to come.

 I go shopping to get inspired; taking in the colors, textures, layering, angles, arrangements, displays, atmosphere, etc.
 Arhaus is one of my very favorite stores.
 I could spend hours looking and touching.
I LOVE those concrete tea light holders (above).  May have to go back and get a few.  Yep, may just have to go back.
