I was totally smitten by Amber's wondrous post on the a little vintage shop from 70s Portland and Sasha's posts from "Witch Camp" and about a local jewellery designer. I have high hopes for a roadtrip to Northern Cali next year and can't wait to see the Sierra Foothills the magical land from which these lovely ladies hail from.
These images are my favorites from said posts and though you've probably seen them already I have share them here. So much love.
I'm making myself a replica of this bird-dress by Goddess, it's amazing.
How much would I love to be a herbalist witch woman partying with all this female energy?
Or wearing one of these amazing rings, preferably in my birthstone? Or any piece from Gather Jewellery for that matter?
A lot, I think is the answer. What a charmed life you lead Sasha!
I did get some amazing jewellery myself this weekend at the Farmer's Market. Local girl Amelia has cast these beauties in enamel and I just felt like I had to invest into one of her pieces.
Dreamy or what? My only peeve is that I didn't get picture of the stylish jeweller herself. I am however bringing you another long delayed edition of Dirt Road Style from the market. She is a recent summer addition to the Island and something of a jeweller herself.
Or what do you think of the bee&hive brooch Sarah made for herself in jewellery class? Why didn't they have that class at my college!?!?
Cowboy boots, powder blues, pockets and bees, oh my!
Other than my little jaunt to the market Saturday was very much a work day, but Sunday, like I said was gloriously lazy. I did do my own version of mowing and weed whacking which includes an ancient tool that I love wielding.
It's so wonderful to find a rhythm with it, realise that your body has to taut and relaxed at the same time and that the old sickle you got for a dollar at an estate sale still has bite, still does to the job, because things just used to be better made way back when. It does not however make the lawn much shorter. Good thing I don't really have lawn...
I did plant some more squash as well, picked some berries for my ice cream, and went Dump shopping, but mostly I just lazed about in the sun. Glorious, glorious sun.
I'm reading so many interesting books right now, including this one, as well as Lakota woman
recommended by Heather I think, and World Made By Hand. Our reading is often determined by the books we find at the Dump and right now it's a lot of Native American stuff which might be sign of some undercurrents of our lives right now (more about that later). I have however ordered a few books online including the afore mentioned WMBH and a couple of other interesting titles. They're worth a post in and of themselves I think.
I love how all of my "shopping" could easily make one heck of a 70s outfit. Love it!
Happy week everyone, peace love and rainbows to one and all!
