227~Good Vibes

Random snaps with the new camera from around the house...

It seems I'm short on words.  I was trying to think of all the things I wanted to say about the house, but all I can really come up with is, this house has good vibes...And I love it.

More on the house later...I'm inspired to share a little bit more of our little compound of houses here in Honolulu.


A few things...

It seems that the purchase of a new camera and the turning of the calendar page to a new year, have inspired me to start posting here again...I look forward to adding more to this blog in the next year, to posting little slices of life and pieces of my work, and for having this space to come back to in the future as a kind of time capsule.  Thanks for coming along for the ride...

It was stormy and gray, with just the right moody light to snap a few pictures of some new rings...


Follow the Sun

We woke up at 5am and drove to watch the sunrise from a lookout just past Makapuu...It was cloudy, we couldn't actually see the sun come up, but the glow behind the clouds was gorgeous.  Blue-gray clouds blanketed the horizon in the distance, where on a clear day you can see all the way to Maui.  A lovely way to welcome in 2015.

At sunset we packed the car with blankets, pillows, snacks, and of course Max, and went to Kaimana Beach to soak up the sunset...



I found this ring box at a market in Seattle over Thanksgiving vacation...I think I've discovered a new item to collect~I fell down the ebay rabbit hole and have discovered all kinds of beautiful antique ring boxes.  

Also...New jewels are trickling into the shop ~


New Camera, New Photos~

My new camera is proving to be a hard worker, and given my lack of know how in the photography department, I'd say she's worked over time this week... I sat down tonight and looked through all the pictures I took over the past week or so, and picked a hand full that I really like.  I'm excited to learn how to use this beautiful little piece of equipment, it's going to take some time for sure, and I just told myself today to calm down, and that "it's all about the journey"...hopefully I can remember that next time I get frustrated that I can't figure out why something's not working the way I had hoped.  
I'm happy to finally share some work with you that has been languishing on a table in the living room for weeks~ More to come soon!
