Cheerful Colors Cheers Us Up In Dreary January

Cheerful colors are good medicine for these dark, dreary days of January. We got some colorful deliveries last week I want to share with you.

Cheerful Colors On Your Table

Cheerful colors like turquoise fused glass trays are a perfect antidote to winter blues
Cheerful turquoise fused glass trays cheer up your table



Renton’s Linda Covey-Campbell just delivered these colorful, contemporary dishes – the perfect antidote to an otherwise dreary tabletop. Fill each one up with cheese, crackers, veggie sticks or whatever you can think of. At top left we have a 10″ square dish in two shades of turquoise with a custom-made glass “pebble” inset and three black dots in the corner, resulting in a sleek design with clean lines. Just $63. At top right we have a pair of 5″ square dishes at $16 each that coordinate beautifully with the big square which can be used for small tasty treats that compliment what’s on the big dish.

Go for the gusto and add the 7″ x 15″ tray ($58) which is perfect for all kinds of yummy treats. Watch the turquoise appear as the treats disappear. Get all four dishes for $160.

Cheerful Colors on You

Cheerful colors like this periwinkle top cheer you up when you wear it.
Everybody loves periwinkle!

Cheerful colors like periwinkle are a favorite of many because it’s so pleasing to the eye and looks good on so many skin tones. This flattering tunic has long sleeves and a cowl neck with a delicate flair at the torso making it not overly flowy. It has a straight edge hem all the way around. I paired it here with our popular bamboo leggings with the attached skirt which is super comfortable. Better not wait too long because I think these will sell out fast!(Update 1/16 – yep, they all sold out. Hope to get more soon. Stay tuned!)

Cheerful colors like seafoam in this coordinating jacket and top
Cheerful seafoam jacket and coordinating top

Choices



Cheerful colors like seafoam are popular too. The solid jacket is hip length with a zip closure, excellent pockets and even a hood. The print top coordinates perfectly because they were dyed in the same dye lot. The top has 3/4 sleeves and an assymetrical hem and V-neck. Both are cotton with spandex which means they’ll be easy to wash and care for in addition to feeling great on your body.

Cheerful Colors like Garnet

It’s January which means our birthstone this month is garnet, and we have some gorgeous selections from which you may choose your favorite.

Cheerful colors like garnet is also January's birthstone
Garnet is January’s birthstone



Check out this one-of-a-kind hammered sterling ring by Lynnwood’s Bonnie AuBuchon. It features a faceted garnet in a deep red hue that catches the light beautifully. Currently sized at a 10, it can be re-sized just for you. $90.

Cheerful colors like garnet make great jewelry for January birthday girls.
Faceted garnet in a sterling teardrop pendant



The depth of color in this beautiful garnet is enhanced by the additional facets carved on the underside of the stone by our master faceter – Bill Booze. Bill has been honing his faceting skills for over 30 years now, and can capture the most beautiful aspects of his A-grade stones so masterfully. Since he’s also a metalsmith, he sets the stones, too, usually in simple settings to best show off the stone. Here we have a sterling teardrop setting with the garnet nestled at the base for an interesting, contemporary look.

Style Tip – Choose The Right Jewelry

Here’s another tip in our ongoing series about choosing the right jewelry for your outfit. We’re looking at our periwinkle top with its interesting texture of undulating lines and puckers.

When choosing jewelry consider the texture and neckline
Shape and line mimic the texture of the top

There’s room for a 16″ – 19″ necklace in this top which features a shallow scoop neckline. First, mimic the shallow scoop by choosing a necklace that is also a scoop shape as opposed to a pendant that would change the shape to a “V”. Second, find something with undulating lines such as this interesting piece by Lizzy James, which also has interspersed shapes that are very similar to the shapes in the top itself. What could be more perfect?

Resolve To Be a Bright Spot in 2017

Resolve to be a bright spot in 2017! After all the tumult and confusion of 2016, we are faced with a choice: feel fearful and anxious, or spread cheer and happiness. I know it’s a cliche, but truly, you can “be the change you want to see” in the world.  I hope you’ll join me in that resolution today!

Be a Bright Spot: Smile!

Be a bright spot: smile!
Be a bright spot: SMILE!

Smiles beget smiles. Just try it and you’ll see. Smile and say hello to strangers and see what happens. Some will smile back and say hello. Others will look confused. Some may snarl back. Whatever happens, you’ll spread a piece of joy out into the world.

Be a Bright Spot – a Spot of Beauty

We all admire nature’s beauty. Try to be a piece of beauty yourself! Say no to the sweatshirt and sweatpants. Put on this instead (and be just as comfy too!).

Be a bright spot of beauty in Testimony Los Angeles and Angelrox gear.
A lovely outfit by our American designers

Choices



Testimony pants in “fatigue” and vest in “latte” are made of their soft French Terry. The bamboo top in “brick” fits sizes 0 – 12. Finish it off with a long necklace with a soft green stone. The simplicity of the lines, along with the pretty color combination make this outfit a bright spot of beauty, especially in Seattle with all its black and gray in the winter!

Colors and Sizes



Be a Bright Spot of Fun

The “Reba” jacket by Testimony continues to be the top-selling jacket, and for good reasons: it looks great on many different body types. I’ve got it in all three of these colors right now, including from left to right chocolate, dusk and latte. Made of French terry, this jacket washes up beautifully in the washing machine, which gives it an A+ rating for easy care. Be a bright spot of beauty when you choose to wear this instead of your hoody!

Be a bright spot with the Lizzy James jewelry can be worn as either a bracelet or a necklace.
Wear this jewelry as either a bracelet or a necklace.

Colors



Our newest jewelry collection is from Lizzy James, whose clever designs let you wear each item as either a necklace or a bracelet. On the model on the right photo, you’ll see two separate bracelets as well as a third worn as a necklace. This is in the classic style featuring 4 strands of leather with silver curved tubes that create fascinating movement around your  neck.

I have two like this in stock, as well as many other choices. Both are 20″ necklaces, which fit a wrist size close to 6″.

Share a bright spot of fun and beauty when wearing these intriguing pieces of jewelry.

Five Beautiful Looks For Your Holiday 2016

We’ve got gifts for all your Seahawks fans. We’ve got a great selection of stocking stuffers. And now, we have five beautiful looks for all your holiday 2016 parties. Enjoy free shipping too!

Beautiful Faux Fur

Five beautiful looks includes this elegant faux fur Hepburn coat by Pandemonium
Reversible faux fur “Hepburn” coat



It’s cold outside! So yes, you could wear your puffy coat that you and a million other people got at Costco, or, your could wear this elegant faux fur coat inspired by Audrey Hepburn, and hence named the “Hepburn.” It’s even reversible. Available in size small, which fits sizes 4 – 7, the coat length is 32″ from the center back neckline to the bottom edge. $325. Coordinating fingerless gloves also available for $29.

Five beautiful looks like this elegant faux fur ivory stole by Pandemonium
Make an entrance in this faux fur ivory stole

The simple elegance of a bygone era can be invoked by wearing this faux fur ivory stole to your next event. It’s 82″ long and 14″ wide, hence it is the perfect length and width for multiple wearing options. Just $89. This is the second of our five beautiful looks!

Long and Elegant

Five beautiful looks includes the long Victorian jacket by Testimony
Testimony’s long Victorian jacket in a mineral wash black

One of the five beautiful looks for your holiday 2016 is the elegant long Victorian jacket by Testimony Los Angeles. We currently have this color, “asphalt”, in stock,  a mineral wash black which makes it much more interesting than a plain black coat. The cut minimizes hips and buttocks, which creates a slender profile for all. Made of French Terry, it is 94% cotton and 6% spandex and as a result, it washes up beautifully in the washing machine. What could be better?

Five beautiful looks like the "gilet" vest from Testimony Los Angeles
Testimony’ “Gilet” vest in latte

Even though it is shown here with a sleeveless top, making us all feel chilled in our winter weather, the “Gilet” vest from Testimony Los Angeles is rather an excellent layering piece for our currently cooler temperatures. The top-selling “latte” color shown make it especially relevant as an excellent neutral for those who wear warm tones. All sizes currently available from XS – XL (UPDATE: Large sold 12/20). $160.


Sizes

Top six stocking stuffers include SolMate's mismatched colorful socks
The top three selling colors of our favorite mismatched socks

Naturally, included in the top six stocking stuffers category are the famous mis-matched socks from Vermont’s SolMate. Made of recycled cotton, these popular socks feel as great as they look. Furthermore, you can order these three top-selling colors online and not pay a penny for shipping! From top left, we have Raspberry, Daffodil and the new Midnight. Just $19.95.

A Few More Top Six Stocking Stuffers

Top six stocking stuffers must include magical lotus glow candle holders
Give a bit of magic

The ever-popular Lotus Glows are made in Woodinville and most notably, they bring fun and beauty to your home’s ambiance. The small two-color glass votive holder reveals its magic when you light the candle which reveals the gorgeous, colorful pattern you see in the photos above. Still just $19.95 each, which includes a card showing how to achieve maximum results.

Top six stocking stuffers include pretty glass nail files
Pretty glass nail files are a perfect treat

Most of us keep a nail file around, so what makes this nail file one of the top six stocking stuffers? First of all, it’s beautiful. Once again, we have elegant and utilitarian combined in a single tool, and therefore one we use frequently. Secondly, it’s available in two sizes: the small one is 4″ long, which fits perfectly into your purse for emergency needs, while the larger one is 6″ long, closer in length to the one you might keep in the bathroom. Finally, the dichroic glass decoration at the top is what sets these nail files apart. These are top quality too, and will never wear out. All this combined makes it a great gift, since it’s something a person would thoroughly enjoy using, but may not indulge in for themselves.

Glass nail files are better for nail health, because they leave a smooth edge instead of rasping the tips off leaving things rough. $12 and $14.50. Indicate color preferences in the comment box upon payment, or give me a call.

Enjoy our top six stocking stuffers for 2016, and shop from home this year to get free shipping!

Thick glass coasters boast the bright blue and green of the Seahawks colors, with a “12” sandblasted onto the surface. The colorful cross-hatch pattern is applied using a stencil and powdered glass onto two layers of clear glass. After fusing that all together, the sandblasting of the “12” is added.

Seahawks Fans Are Well-Groomed

Options



The dedicated Seahawks fan knows that grooming is as important as cheering. In such an instance, these fans must use a 12th Man glass nail file to achieve maximum results. Glass nail files are best, leaving a smooth edge to your nails as opposed to metal or wood files, which simply tear your nails to shreds, making splitting and peeling the next natural phase. Once you’ve used a glass nail file, you can’t go back to metal or wood. Men and women alike prefer a glass nail file, so get one for your Seahawks fan today!
