Everything gray

No, I'm not depressed, nor has the sun left us just yet. I have a thing for gray. Last night I dreamed that I was looking thru Flickr finding beautiful gray photography. Strange? Yes, but I'm hardly surprised, since I completely overdosed on my blogland visits yesterday evening. I decided to follow my dream and do a post on all things gray.

Gray is such a soothing color to me. Perhaps that's why I don't get too sad in the winters here. The rain can be incredibly annoying but on the other hand, on gloomy days, my yoga pants, warm cups of tea and good books beckon me to the sofa. Gray can be soft, feminine, elegant but I also find it such a comfy color. Like a hug. It reminds me of sweatshirts, knitted cardigans and cozy scarves. Heavy clouds. Dripping rain on the window. My kitty cat (she's very gray).

I guess I just love it.

I hope you love these gray things as much as I do.

As for your weekend...I hope it is beautiful and sunny! After all, summer's not over yet.

In love with Sahlia Michelle

Okay, everyone knows I love sparkly things but these beauties really took my breath away. One of my favorite jewelry designers, Amy Olson introduced me to Sahlia's work and as usual, Amy's impeccable taste has not led me astray.

Her organic aesthetic, unique combination of textures and materials and an undeniable *swoon* factor, makes her work highly desirable. Half untamed and half refined, her designs strike the perfect balance between the good girl and bad girl in all of us.

The fact that she's from Portland is rather fabulous too!

These are from her Bridal collection but I think I would wear them everyday...why not?

Go to her beautiful site to explore her entire collection.

You won't be disappointed.

Just picked up the latest People Style Watch magazine (I always buy fun magazines for plane trips) and according to their fashionistas, gold cuff bracelets are very en vogue.

So, I went treasure hunting on Etsy to find some hand-made beauties.

I'm in love with # 7 myself. So pretty!

Enjoy.
