Sitting in Style

Ohh how I wish I would have known about these chairs. The Nicole Reid CollectionTM offers beautiful hand-carved high chairs that add a touch of elegance to your living space.

I love them. I love this leopard print, I love the cream, I love the black. I love them all. They not only look stylish & classy, they are quite functional too. They work well with your decor. They are not an eye sore. They add style to your room & make your little Prince or Princess sit upon a Posh seat with such regal presence. A wonderful piece to have at Grandparents house. A necessary seat when child comes to visit, yet a wonderful design to not become an eye sore when not in use.

On top of all that.... this wonderful find actually becomes a youth chair. So you really get your moneys worth.

This would actually be great for the parents whom have more than one child. They would look stylish & not be too much as if having double or more Plastic high chairs all in a row. These would be perfect baby shower gifts. A great gift for those whom want to go in together on a big ticket item. This definitely would be a gift that lasts!

Enjoy her site. She is definitely someone to watch. Nicole Ried:

Prince Fairy ~

This is such a charming little Prince. I turned him into a fairy collage. This is actually my first attempt to do a collage painting. I loved it. I did another one ~Princess Fairy. I sold her along time ago to a boutique owner that hung it in her home for HERSELF. She said it made her smile.
I am still missing that painting. I think I will part with this one. Even though it is my first, I do not have him hanging around. He deserves a special home.

He is standing proudly atop the World. He will one day rule the world in his little land. I think i will post him on my Etsy site tomarrow. take a peak

My first 3 collages. I'm proud of them all.
The middle happy fairy is a magnet on
my fridge.

Bonne Nuit

I thought of A sweet little gift for baby showers. So I created this little wooden plaque. I did change the crystal at the bottom to a real chandelier crystal instead. I just like it better.
Sweet, charming & one of a kind. They can say "Bonne Nuit" (french) or Sweet Dreams.
Available in several other dreamy colors. I guess I could make them in Bolder colors for those with brighter decor. Each one with a tiny bouquet in the corner with just the right amount of sparkle & magic. (Painted berries & birdy, pearl, rhinestone & flowers)
Such a little thing but has such Huge impact.
perfect for baby showers & just sweet for any time gift. hang it from anything to just add some charm & sweetness.

Even better gift, add to one of my painted pails & throw in a cutom bib & birpies & even some homemade all natural soap. Now thats a GREAT baby shower gift.
LOTS of great finds on the esty site. Click on my link to start ~ Type in the "search" for baby bibs or all natural soaps..... or whatever you want. SOOOOO many great finds on ETSY. Support Handmade & Indie artists. not slave factories.
Support more moms like me.
Thank you!

Who is behind the mask?

I ask myself daily... who am I? What am I thinking? what am I doing? Where do I go with all this? WHY???? Why to so many diff. things I am struggling with daily.

I must regroup. FOCUS. Think Positive. I need to believe in me. No matter how hard it is in my life right now & how alone I am doing all this. I NEED to FOCUS. Believe & move in another direction.

Art Inspires me

Fashion inspires Me

Music Inspires Me

My 5 Girls inspire me

Seal Is inspiring....
So many things inspire me. So many artists on here, Blogs on here. Photo's on here. They All inspire me. However, ALL of it is making me spin. I want to do it all but there is only one of me.

For now I must focus on baby & child. All the sites & blogs that I can benefit from & those whom could benefit from me.I must appeal to the bigger market I guess. Little ol' me can not be found with all my eye candy of Fashion & art all over my page. I must give in to commercial ways & play the game I guess. Time will tell. I would love to set an example. A new one.

Show RETAIL & Commercial Buyers that they do have a choice. they can go off in a new direction. They do not need to buy from the TYPICAL markets & buy only from those whom have "mass" produced items or an already stalked studio with kitty cutter "fast buck" items.

That those whom appreciate one of a kind (this seems to be used broadly & too frequently)

can actually get one of a kind from their favorite boutique that they want to support. To know that brick & mortar stores as online stores..... actually take the time to seek out those "one of a kind" quality items. Not quantity one of a kinds that every online store is selling. How "one of a kind" are they? I am not knocking them at all. Sure I would love my line to take off & sell my style to as many as I can; and as many of that ONE item to as many stores as I could. but there is a difference between that & taking the time to offer specialty items.

That is what I want to do. but not get trampled over by the MASS produced items.

I'm not into making a quick buck. I do not have time for that. I just don't believe in that. Anything QUICK doesn't last long. I'm in it for the long run.

Does this make sense to anyone?

I'm trying to reach anyone that appreciates my style & work & hope to build a relationship, clientele & name with them. Grow with them as they continue to grow.

ANY & ALL advice is welcome.

Thanks for reading yet another LONG one. I'm working on that too.

My new inspiration ~

Thanks to Sandra Evertson I found Alannah. I love this Australian Designer. (Originally from Tasmania) She is just so girly, frou frou, frilly, sweet, romantic, sexy & a perfect thought in my creative mind. I want her dresses. I want to see more. I do not know what it is. All the pictures, settings, backgrounds, colors, details.... Whatever it is, it is inspiring me.
Now it is just a matter of figuring it all out.
Wish me luck. Enjoy her site & shop around. if you purchase anything. Please do share! : )
