Happy Memorial Day!

















 A few weeks ago we headed out to upstate New York for a wedding. Being the wanderers that we are, we took our time on the drive there and back, stopping in cozy little towns to explore. We discovered all kinds of amazing antique stores in Western Pensylvania. Amidst a maze of gorgeous antiques that seemed to go on miles, I found a bright red, vintage huffy bike. It was love at first site. Not only was it super inexpensive, it is in tip top shape! And what kind of crazy artist lady would I be if I didn't immediately take her home and decorate her?!

I filled my bike basket with my favorite little antique bottles, overflowing with fresh flowers of course. I grabbed one of our gorgeous, new kantha throws, put on my most summer-in-the-70s outfit, complete with tons of (new) SoulMakes jewels, and went out for a little stroll! I felt like queen of sunshine cruisin around on this bad boy. There's such a sensation of freedom and a bit of child-like wonderment that comes with riding a bike. Also, I couldn't resist the American Flag top for Memorial Day! Hope you all have a gorgeous long weekend!

I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free
And I wont forget the men who died, who gave that right to me

I'm wearing:
Jewelry - SoulMakes (and a few vintage turquoise rings)
Crochet Flag Top - Lux Clothing
High Waisted Shorts - Free People
Belt - vintage
Straw Hat - Ikea (yes, Ikea. It was $3. What can I say?)
Antique Glass Bottles full of flowers & Kantha Throw in bike basket - SoulMakes
Also,  the adorable little flag attached to my bike is new in the shop!

New SoulMakes Treasures














Have you seen our new catch-all dishes?! We've just added a few limited edition beauties to the shop! The stunning quartz & rose quartz dish, made from rough crystals are the prefect little jewelry dishes. Pile in your favorite SoulMakes jewels and display them beautifully on you dresser top. These stunning crystals practically glow, they are so radiant and carry with them good vibes to brighten your space. They also make the perfect little resting place for our smudge sticks! 

We also have a small run of vintage trinket trays available! These gorgeous dishes were crafted many moons ago in Japan. They took a journey, perhaps in some travelers suitcase, all the way back to the states ages ago. Cherished by their previous owners, they are well preserved and perfectly worn. Printed with beautiful birds, flowers and leaves, almost tropical in design. They boast a light gold dusting around the edges, which also trails throughout the paradise-like pattern across the surface of the dish. What a perfect place to toss your keys and change at the end of a hard day's work. Not only is it an elegant spot to display your most treasured jewelry, it adds a perfect vintage touch to any room.
