My New Favorite Shop: Artemisia

This little treasure of a shop is an explosion to my senses! Ohhhhhhhh where do I begin. They have a variety of glass vessels to create sweet terrariums. You can embellish your terrarium with ground garnet or hematite (I used hematite above for a jewelry display). They carry succulents, raw gemstones, moss, and so much more. Love!

Goodbye Window

I printed out goodbye in many languages to adhere to our window at Splurge. It's always fun to create a window display, this one was difficult/sad. I couldn't visualize how we would introduce the fact that we were closing. A friend gave me-umm, my son- the Eiffel Tower to create out of wood and presto! Window display!

I'm gonna miss this little shop!

The Garden Disc

Inspired by the love of gardening, these pieces have bits of basil leaves, cucumber tendrils, and wolfberries. I'm better at creating these pieces than gardening, but I'll get there.

Enjoy your weekend!
