TRIBAL HEADDRESS

???????????????????????????????

Recently I’ve been having fun designing colorful TRIBAL HEADDRESSES, perfect for belly dancers or anyone who has a gypsy spirit within them.  I am thinking of taking some of them in the Gypsy Queen to the next market.

GYPSY QUEEN

I’m finally “brave” enough to take the Gypsy Queen to a market….yes, where there are ACTUALLY, a lot of people!!!!   My girls gave me the little push I needed, by enthusiastically helping me…… drive the Gypsy Queen there, and promising to do the selling part.    They hitched Gypsy Queen to their vehicle, and off we went into town. 

CUTENESS!

Couldn’t have picked a more beautiful day to be there.  The Saturday Market is a huge one, with about 140 vendors.  Wow, it was just great!   So many people loved the little Boler, and the story of her renovation.  There are a lot of people who love little vintage trailers!   The most fun was watching women try on the hats and crowns…..taking pictures of themselves.   Playfulness!

It felt fantastic to be in that atmosphere of happy people, enjoying the sun, the  food,  music and artisans.

BEAUTY AND LIGHT

Take a moment to look at what is beautiful in this world.  There is SO MUCH to see, appreciate and focus on…..beauty surrounds us!   There isn’t any darkness where Beauty resides or when we turn our attention towards those who create beauty, people who make a positive difference in the world, or in noticing the beauty of animals and nature.  Noticing beauty is how we shine The LIGHT in the world… together, as many as possible, let us notice what surrounds us,  BEAUTY AND LIGHT.  And let us BE the LIGHT that notices the BEAUTY…..Life in perfect harmony.

NEW BEGINNING 2013

With the dawn of 2013, what hopes do you have for yourself and for this world?  Are they similar to mine?

tumblr_m6ak4weLC71r0ezqso1_500

My hope is for more OPEN HEARTEDNESS

for humanity to WAKE UP

9077636718623375_GgEK3rzt_c

I hope for more transparency……I want to know why, this world is the way it is….why such turmoil, why such suffering?  We need this to change!  We need a NEW BEGINNING!    Starting with……..

TRANSPARENCY

tumblr_mdyr12fRuS1r3a6jho1_500

Transparency leads to finding out truth.   Truth leads to change.  We cannot have change without knowing truth.

WE NEED TRUTH, BALANCE AND LOVE IN THIS WORLD

tumblr_lv5pupkQL61r1qrlfo1_500

NEW BEGINNINGS require more AWARENESS 

We need to become aware of WHY humanity is so complacent and compliant in accepting the injustices in the world.  And why we believe there is nothing “the little me”  can do about it.   There is so much we can do, but first, we must wake up and become aware of the WHY, the HOW, and the WHO…..  manipulating  so many of us to sleep…. numbing us out so that we tolerate the unfairness and turmoil in our world.  

FIND OUT THE TRUTH

Peel the layers back until you find the truth for yourself.

tumblr_m6euylskrI1qkcwnvo1_500

There is a call for us to have a NEW PERCEPTION

of SEEING THINGS not only as the are, but seeing things the way they should be. 

tumblr_m4vctzF61D1qduom2o1_500

NEW BEGINNINGS require us to QUESTION, LEARN, EVOLVE, EXPAND  beyond what we think our limitations are. 

37365871878826587_fVckhOGp_c

for the TRUTH is WE ARE LIMITLESS CONSCIOUSNESS

BEAUTY KEEPERS

APPRECIATING BEAUTY IS A WONDERFUL ENERGY VIBRATION.  IT BRINGS THE WORLD TOGETHER, PEACEFULLY.

APPRECIATING BEAUTY IS SOMETHING TO PAY ATTENTION TO………………..  IT’S SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN.

SOMETHING TO PASS ON…… KEEP MOVING IT FORWARD…………FLOWING.

My fellow BEAUTY KEEPERS, thank you for doing that.

SUCH BEAUTIFUL LITTLE FACES

CONTEMPLATING LIFE and DREAMS

Today seems like a perfect day to contemplate life and “what dreams may come”.

Life is a collection of ideas, and dreams being born……

Following a dream can get a bit messy, but it’s fun too!

Jump in with both feet…..don’t be afraid!

Dreaming big can be fabulously exhausting dahling,  and sometimes requires taking a break to regroup so to speak!

or maybe eat something tasty…

You know your dreams are fantastic, so they mustn’t go unrealized.

Dream it UP and dream it BIG!

 

Dreaming dreams with friends is the best of fun!

PURSUE, PERSEVER AND MOST OF ALL, PRACTISE PATIENCE.

 

CREATING BEAUTY IS LIVING A PURPOSEFUL, MEANINGFUL LIFE.

CREATING A LITTLE MAGIC

I am attracted to and awed by all things wild and wonderful!  I think my art  embodies this love of enchantment and magical wonder, through the eclectic variety of art work that I love creating.  This week I have had fun, making magic wands!

The wands are made of driftwood, beach glass, crystals, glass tiles, beads and other found embellishments.  The seem to hold powers of intention!

——————————————————————————————————————–

I AM ONE OF THE SEARCHERS

“There are, I believe, millions of us.  We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content.  We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret.  We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand.  We like to walk along the beach………..

we are drawn to the ocean, taken by its power, it’s unceasing motion,  its mystery and unspeakable beauty.

We like the forests…..

and the mountains,

deserts and hidden rivers,

and the lonely cities as well.

Our sadness is as much apart of our lives as is our laughter.  To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know …… unless it be to share our laughter.

We searchers are ambitious only for life itself and for every thing beautiful it can provide.  Most of all we love and want to be loved.  We want to live in a relationship that will not impede our wandering, nor prevent our search, nor lock us in prison walls.

I am far more aware of the power that guides each and everyone of us along the way, and provides us with insights and people we need for our journey.  There are, indeed men and women too gentle to live among wolves and only when joined with them, will life offer the searcher, step by step all that is good and beautiful.

Life becomes not a confused struggle or pointless pain, but an evolving mosaic masterpiece of the person we are destined to become.”    ….James Kavanagh, poet
