Colorful Kitsch vs. Earth-toned Authenticity

Colorful Kitsch vs. Earth-toned Authenticity

Why does it matter which you like better? The type of color scheme you’re drawn to affects your outfits, your house decorating, the photographs you take and share on Facebook, etc. In short, the colors you surround yourself with and present to the world as “your palette” are part of what tells others who you […]

Hey, hey – I had a baby!!

Wisconsin Fall Leaves, a fleeting indulgence.

Wisconsin Fall Leaves, a fleeting indulgence.

Instead of bringing fall leaves home, now we take pictures! I used to end autumn walks with a handful of leaves and now I end them with a phone camera full of leaf pictures. I think it’s a good example of how technology can move us in an eco-conscious direction. Why clutter up the house […]

Meditations on a Beach Stone

Meditations on a Beach Stone

There’s something about a perfectly symmetrical, perfectly rounded beach stone. The weight of it, it’s like the whole of existence could fall down into that perfectly centered point.

Off-centered Layers: Natural Style Inspiration for Wood Nymphs

Off-centered Layers: Natural Style Inspiration for Wood Nymphs

I’m in love with off-centered, layered clothing styles lately! I recently noticed that a lot of the fashions in my Elrond’s Geologist pinboard were trending in that direction, so I ask myself why. After a quick online tour of my natural stone jewelry, I latched on to this piece, the Beachcombing Necklace. It has an […]

Natural Wonder in Late Summer

Natural Wonder in Late Summer

Here’s a little collection of wonder moments that found me over the last month or so.
