Studio Time

Nowadays, you will see all the cars here with this greenish, yellow halo, which means that Spring has officially arrived. This means that I'm in the studio a lot making lots of pieces for the Inman Park Festival. I will be continuing my spring cleaning theme, so I am actually going to have a whole sale section this year. I'm going to have a bunch of $10 earrings and items that are 50% off, so mark your calendars. April 28th and 29th are the dates. Below are a few pics of what I've been working on and my process.

Green Smoothies

I've been on a bit of a healthy foods kick of late. I'm not sure what really triggered it, but about a month ago I started making green smoothies for breakfast every morning. Vegetables have never really been my thing, but I would force myself to eat some for all those health reasons. So these smoothies are a great way to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into my diet. My husband bought me a fresh pineapple so I could come up with some kind of concoction. My first batch was not so great because I added way to much ginger. Subsequent ones were much better.

2 mandarins
4 romaine leaves
chunks of pineapple
sliver of ginger
1 banana
almond butter
almond milk
chia seeds
dash of agave

By the way, pineapples are a pain to cut. If you have any smoothie recipes, I'd love to read them.

New Eye Makeup

A few months ago, I got rid of all my eye makeup and brushes due to a nasty stye that I got. So last night, I got this little shipment of goods, which made me giddy.
What are some of the little things that make you happy?

Weekend Getaway to Tennessee

This past weekend, Gene and I went up to spend the weekend at his dad's place with a few friends. His dad has a really nice house that sits on a few acres of land. His dad is also an amateur landscaper, so the grounds are immaculate. Below are a few shots of the land and the buds that are starting to bloom. There's also a fire pit, and we were able to get a really great, warm fire started.

And I just had to share a picture of how we started the day. Homemade shrimp and grits and some bubbly. Oh, and I spent the whole day in my PJs. So luxurious!

Hope you guys had a great weekend, and I'd love to hear what you did.
