Happy Friday everyone! Hope your week went well!
I don’t know about you but I love to witness people’s creative process. I like to see how an artist creates… how does it start? What does their space look like? What kind of tools do they use? I’m a bit nosy that way. So, when I came across this amazing photography project by Jennifer Causey, I had to share it with you. The project is titled – “The Makers Project” and it visually documents the creative process of artists, jewelers, ceramicists, bakers, florists and many other amazing artisans! I could spend all day looking at these beautiful and intriguing photographs.
Here are some shots showing the work of talented Brooklyn based jeweler, Jennifer Sarkilahti of Odette Jewelry
Fascinating right? Now be warned, the site is addictive so make sure you have a cup of something warm and a little time to explore. Enjoy!
Also…go check out Odette’s website, Jennifer’s creations are truly gorgeous! Drool…I mean see below….
Have a fantastic weekend.

Hello there! I’ve been having a bit of “blogger’s block” recently but tonight, I finally sat down and decided to share with you some images that have been floating around in my head for the last week. You see, one of the mom’s at Grace’s school is a horse woman and she has just gotten back into riding. I think that is so fabulous! I’m completely useless on a horse so I always admire those who connect with them! Every time we get one of those perfectly, crisp Autumn mornings, I think of her riding her horse through golden fields and falling leaves. For some reason Autumn and horses just go together don’t they? A bright fall sky, the crunching of leaves, a touch of morning fog, the reds, oranges and yellows, warm sweaters and riding boots…I mean it’s a match made in heaven really. Don’t you think?

I may not be the best on a horse but I can still lust after that equestrian look…
So lady like and refined but still strong. Love it!
This everyday outfit is perfect with just the right amount of equestrian appeal….(click to shop)
Okay, one more horsey pic…I could gaze at these gorgeous creatures all day…
What are you dreaming about on these beautiful Fall days?

A couple of weeks ago we traveled to Sisters, Oregon to meet up with my parents and have a little vacation in the mountains. We rented a sweet little condo right in town so we could walk everywhere. It was a beautiful couple of days, sunny and warm and in sharp contrast to the dreary wetness that had moved into Portland. Gotta love the high desert! On the way home, we stopped at Detroit Lake. Such a gorgeous spot! Here are some of the pics I managed to capture…
Grace found herself the “perfect walking stick” and declared herself an explorer! Her zebra T fit in nicely for this romp in the wild. As did her head of untamed curls. (It was brushed and in a ponytail when we got in the car…I swear!)
I loved all the beautiful colors and textures!
What a fabulous end to a great weekend away.
