Olive Goil: Ann Wood

My oh my, but will you just look at the wonderful work of artist Ann Wood! Exquisite, lacy, loverly pieces – all constructed with a kind of fragile and haunted grace!

Ann Wood's Ship Tea Cup

Miss Wood makes her home in New York but her delicate, pretty little birds and teacups and castles seem to belong in the midst of a fairytale!  As Ann explains so beautifully …“Much of my inspiration comes from ideas I have been infatuated with my whole life: smallness, intricacies, miniaturization, collections, repetition; lost or abandoned things discovered and rescued; the idea of haunted and enchanted places, things and creatures; the setting of a tiny stage.”

I don’t know about you, but I myself have a particularly fond and warm feeling toward of her incredible floating sailing ships – being a sailor gal myself.

Just imagine – hanging one of these from your ceiling and dreaming of salt on the wind and high adventure to come!

Olive Loves: Marc Jacobs Bag

Stripes are to die for and red and white are my colors, as you know and … just take a gander at the shape and size of this amazing, beautiful, perfect stowaway bag (it’s called, “Too Hot To Handle”)!

Absolutely the place for your stash of sea shells and gold coins and bits of odd shaped driftwood – all those wonderful treasures a lady out to have in her purse!

Marc Jacobs is always a wonder!

Olive Goil: La Sera

Is there nothing that fiery redheaded wunderkund Katy Goodman can’t do?

She’s been in too many bands to count, is apparently some sort of computer genius and is about to tour with her new act La Sera, heading out into the big sky state of Texas for that little music festival called SXSW they have down that way…

I do hate to admit it – but at first I was just a teeny bit jealous of Miss Goodman’s high falutin’ style, but then I took a closer look and realized that my very own wardrobe just might be inspiring her sweet but adventurous look. What do you think?

Take a listen lovelies! – Purty lady, purty music!

La Sera’s album “Sees The Light” releases on March 27, 2012 – Only 5 more days!

Life is an adventure my loves!

This absolutely be-yoo-ti-full jewelry from the most imaginative mind of Pamela Love reminds us to grab hold and go for the ride!

These incredible pieces make me think of blasted sands and big suns and camel rides towards lost cities.

Pamela is truly a talent, unafraid to adorn with abandon – her work is about strong style and no apologies.

My kind of lady!
