Something Old, something Made, something New

This week I am happy to present the surreal, the fanciful and the exotic! My tendancy, is to be drawn to similar types of images depending on my mood. This week has been particularly interesting one at work and I have a need to rest when I am home. All three shops this week provide a visual meditation. Each in it's own unique way.

Something Old
 I'm not kidding when I say that I looked at nearly all the photos in this wonderful vintage shop! Fanciful and fun! Cody and April of DawnandRoss specialize in vintage photos, of all kinds! Some of the categories you will find are:
Travel Transportation
Animals
Beach, Lake, River, Pond
 and so much more!
There are over 2,000 photos in their shop, you will certainly need to check it out!!

Something Made
Handmade, stone and fiber. Nature and meditation. That's what these fabulous tactile beauties seem to whisper. Monica is the quintessential crocheter, don't you think?! Her shop, Monicaj, opened in 2007. Not only are her pieces of art unique, her technique is amazing! I love the reference to nature, both under the sea and in the garden ;) Such cool wedding gifts.

 Something New
This sweet shop opened in January of 2013. Meagan of Magpie Fine Art has taken her encaustic art to an ethereal level. These beautiful pieces have a magical and meditative impact on the viewer! I feel drawn by the depth of the work, the layers of wax. She has done a great job of getting her shop up and running. I love her images!
