Belts and goin' old school!
written by Heidi Riedel, September 11, 2010
I absolutely love wearing belts, I have a favorite peacock feather belt that always makes my simple dresses gorgeous. Also when im wearing a white tank and tuck it in to my light denim jeans its just so perfect to add a belt and a cute cardigan :) Loveee bracelets and necklaces but its never both at the same time; either one or the other. I definitely would love this bracelet. One it's beautiful, and two, it reminds me of my favorite time of the year, fall. :)

I'm obsessed with hand crafted jewelry. I especially love pieces that include vintage flea market finds in the mix. It is wonderful when a unique piece of jewelry can start a conversation with another kindred spirt. The bracelet is a job well done. A perfect color combo to transition into to fall with. Who ever wins this beauty will be lucky indeed!

Sweaters - all year round.
written by Elise Heidy, September 10, 2010
I've found that I love sweaters. In winter, in spring, even in summer! I love that a sweater dresses an outfit up, or is a practical tool too to keep you warm. This bracelet would go very well with a sweater.

I'm pretty much obssessed with anything vintage/thrifted. I love how every piece has a past life and story, plus you don't look like everyone else. It's something truly unique!!!
Obsessed with wearable art
written by Whitney Wilde, September 08, 2010
Why is it that "women of a certain age" here in Santa Cruz look funky chic and unique?

There is no other place on Earth I could get away with looking like a walking art piece, yet here in Santa Cruz, I am just one of many. For me, it expresses a mood or who I am that day, whether it is a custom, handmade necklace of a heart with wings or my sweater embroidered with sea life. Maybe it is just the gypsy layering of garments. All combine to make me a walking art gallery of Santa Cruz.

Best of Santa Cruz 2015

In 40 years of publishing, Good Times has seen a lot of “bests.”

 

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
