So long to the glamorous world of swimming in rivers and running in packs of girls in vintage frocks, it's back to the shop-mines for me. Really, is my plight failing to solicit empathy? Yeah, I kinda thought so.
To alleviate/enhance the obnoxious cuteness/triviality this post, I was gonna include flower crown making/cheating tutorial, but whaddya know? Someone stole my flower bouquet! In a town where you can leave your purse on the coffee shop porch for the three days that it takes you to notice you lost it and find it exactly where you left it, someone would take a bouquet of dandelions, honeysuckle and lupines. Another time.
In the absence of tutorial materials I whiled away the day drinking coffee and tea out of my new "Nitsan's No-Spill©™" cup, courtesy of the artist himself and wrapping Larkspur goodies in nice packages. Were it not for the internets, I might have looked outside more longingly.
With such a minimalist space, what is there to organize?
At least bouquet thief let us keep this one.
And of course I wore some clothes. Most of us do.
Top-free from The Dump
Dress-gift from Missa
Necklace-a lovely surprise gift from Nicole
Shoes-None (I wore dirty wellies to work and had to change. I'm classy)
This awesome necklace was gifted to me late at night in a cafe in Sacramento, a surprise so sweet that it brought tears to my eyes. It seems I have the best/generous/most stylish friends on the internet. Sadly, you will not be seeing a picture of our clandestine meeting, because sometimes it's more important to talk than take blog-worthy shots. I will say that Nicole was dressed in a stunning lavender dress and some of her signature jewellery and was as otherworldly beautiful as ever.
Oh and if you fancy a piece of Flaming Hag Folkwear Jewellery yourself, you might want to peek into here. Or simply amble on into her shop Crimson and Clover if you're withing driving distance of Sacramento. If there ever was a worthy investment it is something unique, beautiful and handcrafted.
I especially appreciate that now that I'm officially a maker and purveyor of goods myself. Go ahead, support a local business today! Go visit a shop girl! If you must buy, buy handmade! And if you happen to be in the lovely town of Nevada City, do so in the sonorously named Kitkitdizzi, where our own Amber will be a part of a talented cast of makers and sellers from her neighborhood.
It's almost dinner time, so I best close up shop and head on home, but next time, I just might take you on a little herbal/stargazing/river dipping/ girl bonding road trip...
