In Sweden, coffee is taken seriously, as it should be. Coffee is not just a beverage it is a moment and it is called Fika.

MY HIPPIE HEART a new stock of vintage sari fabrics will be arriving . I have purchased some very unique pieces like the orange/tan/pink sari that is hand beaded and hand cut inlaid. The moss and read vintage silk sari is so pretty with lots of florals. The Georgette Vintage silk is see through and all hand beaded I loved the turquoise with the red.
I cannot wait to receive these and start creating this new line, it will be amazing!

It seemed to have taken much longer putting the house back together from Christmas this year. I blame the cold, dark days and the fact that I decided to do the Spring Cleanout while I put everything back.
I also move Saint Mamet on to the old step stool. He is the Saint of stomach ailments. For years I thought he held a loaf of bread but he is holding intestines....lovely! My Grandmother bought him in the 1970's from an old Monestary School outside of Quebec, he is from France by way of Ireland. The person who had him was a collector of old religious figures.
I bought this amazing print of Gypsy Horses at a farm auction a few years ago. The owners were collectors and the price on the back was $350 in 1961. It was in perfect condition. Unfortunately it rained that day and the auctioneers had the paintings and prints outside instead of in the barn so it got water damage on the bottom. I bought it for $10. and I love it in spite of the dumb mistake the auctioneer made.
Last the is a sign I made that hangs over our door.....words to live by.
