Purple and Red - A Powerful Combination

Creations have been on the back burner for the past week!  The weather has been unbelievable, sunny, warm, no wind.  This is all very amazing for this time of the year.  Now you may think that I have been out enjoying all of this beauty, leaving my work behind for a few days, sadly no. 
We have had a pesky flu bug come in and sail through almost everyone in our house!  Slowly we are all finding our way back to normal with the help from chicken soup and lots of sleep! 

Here is a new creation I want to share with you!  

The purple in this round  stoneware mandela represents Inspiration, Imagination, Individuality, and Spirituality.  The deep red color represents passion and energy. 

Add some purple to your life when you want:
    ~to use your imagination to its fullest
    ~to re-balance your life
          ~to remove obstacles

          ~to calm overactivity or to energize from depression

Add some red to your life when you want:

          ~increased enthusiasm and interest

          ~more energy

          ~action and confidence to go after your dreams

          ~protection from fears and anxieties

Combine your purple with red to empower yourself, giving yourself confidence in your creativity, imagination, and individuality,  and a strong will to persist and succeed.

Wicked Antique Hunting

One of the most exciting parts of spring is the hunt for new treasures!  It is this time when I best venture out alone taking time to find some awesome additions to both my shop and my home.

Recently we have decided to replace some of our porch furniture with more unique and meaningful pieces of comfortable seating. 

This awesome rocking chair is from the late 1800s -early 1900's.  It was for a while in the Lougheed House in Calgary, Alberta according to the seller. 

My Beautiful new Rocking Chair

We then searched for my husband's new front porch rocking chair and found this gem from the early 1900's.  We are still not sure if it will be in our house or on the porch! 

I love all vintage books!  This one I couldn't leave at the thrift shop....I thought I would sell it in my shop but I don't think I can.

Finally I found some awesome vintage Wordsearch Tiles!
These will soon be in my shop...they are approximately 1 inch round and make an awesome pendant!

So Begins the Treasure hunting season!
