We The Tiny House People (Documentary): Small Homes, Tiny Flats & Wee Sh...

I'm so happy I was able to carve out some time to watch this documentary. It challenges what many of us were taught about the American Dream, what it means to have the "good life" and to truly live well.  I enjoyed the film. I'm definitely inspired by the people who shared their experiences. The essence of this film speaks to who I am and what I find most important in my life.

Mortgage-free, tiny home on a housekeeper's salary



Thinking outside of the box & not accepting all of society's standards for how you should live your life, is so refreshing and inspiring!

Blue & White Statement Textile Necklace




* Part of my new collection, this one-of-a-kind textile necklace is fun, lively, expressive, imperfect, eclectic, unconventional, genuine and simple, yet brave.

* Fabric, long strips

* no clasp, goes on over head

* fibers wrapped around focal coil

* measures 28 " from top to bottom, 17" from top down to first coil

* band at nape of neck measures less than 1/2" wide

* Due to the length of necklace, may be shipped folded or coiled

* To ensure this item will last, spot cleaning is recommended. Please do not shower, swim or bathe while wearing.  Due to handcrafting, no two items are ever alike.  Please expect variation in color, stitching and patterns.

Fabric, vintage buttons and colors speak to me, excite me, and shout of creative possibilities.  Even the smallest bits and pieces of exquisite fabrics are cherished and nestled away, where they wait to become an integral part of just the right project.

Hours of love and attention to detail went into this wearable art.  This necklace is accented with fibers, stitching, beads, buttons, charms, and two of my handmade fabric flowers, which I use whenever I can.  Hand-stitching as well as machine-stitching were used to put this piece together.
I loved making this necklace and I hope it speaks to you and your individuality. I hope you'll be proud to call it your own.  Perhaps this vibrant piece can become one of your favorites.
