I designed my first textile for a silk chiffon scarf. I was inspired by a trip to the Brooklyn Botanical Garden and all the blooming magnolia trees. I worked really hard on this design and I am really happy with how it came out. The scarf is available in the shop.

I made a couple of bangles for myself to fit my tiny wrists. I have never been able to find a bangle that wasn't way to enormous for me, but these turned out perfect. They have a hammered texture around the outside to add a bit of interest.
Does anyone else have the problem of bracelets always being ridiculously large?

1. Christys’ Nimbin fedora
I love having a straw hat to keep the sun off my face. I had a large brimmed floppy straw hat but that one only really worked for the beach. This one is great for walking around and wearing to the park. If I go inside I can fold it up into my bag as it is easily crushable.
2. To See a Flower Perfume from CB I Hate Perfume
I got this perfume a couple years ago and I love wearing it in the spring. I love the earthy, wet grass sent; it feels very light and fresh. Scent memory is supposed to be very strong and whenever I spray this perfume I feel like I am lying in a grassy field.
3. Silk Scarves
This silk scarves are the perfect weight for spring. I love this marble scarf by Ilana Kohn. It is really long with is great for wrapping around if you need some extra warmth and the marbling is really beautiful. I just made a few silk scarves of my own design as well.
This is my first pair of Toms shoes and I am loving them. They are light on my feet, easy to slip on and off and comfortable to walk in. I love the idea that for every pair you buy you are really buying two pairs; one for you and one for a child that needs shoes. It makes me feel good about wearing them.
5. Bunny Necklace
I have been wearing my bunny necklace everyday recently. It feels very much like spring.
