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

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 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

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.

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!).

A lovely outfit by our American designers

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!

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.

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.
