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.

The Meaning of ‘LIFE’

With a new documentary film about his work, and huge exhibits on both coasts, acclaimed Santa Cruz nature photographer Frans Lanting is having a landmark year. But his crusade for conservation doesn’t leave much time for looking back

 

Seasons of Opportunity

Everything in our world has a specific time (a season) in which to accomplish a specific work—a “season” that begins (opportunity) and ends (time’s up). I can feel the season is changing. The leaves turning colors, the air cooler, sunbeams casting shadows in different places. It feels like a seasonal change has begun in the northern hemisphere. Christmas is in four months, and 2015 is swiftly speeding by. Soon it will be autumn and time for the many Festivals of Light. Each season offers new opportunities. Then the season ends and new seasons take its place. Humanity, too, is given “seasons” of opportunity. We are in one of those opportunities now, to bring something new (Uranus) into our world, especially in the United States. Times of opportunity can be seen in the astrology chart. In the U.S. chart, Uranus (change) joins Chiron (wound/healing). This symbolizes a need to heal the wounds of humanity. Uranus offers new archetypes, new ways of doing things. The Uranus/Chiron (Aries/Pisces) message is, “The people of the U.S. are suffering. New actions are needed to bring healing and well-being to humanity. So the U.S. can fulfill its spiritual task of standing within the light and leading humanity within and toward the light.” Thursday, Aquarius Moon, Mercury enters Libra. The message, “To bring forth the new order in the world, begin with acts of Goodwill.” Goodwill produces right relations with everyone and everything. The result is a world of progressive well-being and peacefulness (which is neither passive nor the opposite of war). Saturday is the full moon, the solar light of Virgo streaming into the Earth. Our waiting now begins, for the birth of new light at winter solstice. The mother (hiding the light of the soul, the holy child), identifying the feminine principle, says, “I am the mother and the child. I, God (Father), I Matter (Mother), We are One.”

Comanche Cellars

Michael Simons, owner and winemaker of Comanche Cellars, once had a trusted steed called Comanche, which was part of his paper route and his rodeo circuit, from the tender age of 10. In memory of this beautiful horse, he named his winery Comanche, and Comanche’s shoes grace the label of each handcrafted bottle.
