I love springtime, and we are so lucky that it begins early in Tucson. My orange trees are blossoming, the yard is green and the desert surrounding us is lush and delicious.
I feel so creative and want more hours in the day during this luscious season, especially because all I want to do is make existing things more beautiful in my house, garden, and MAST; and create new, beautiful things at my workbench.
These photos are mostly from past seasons, but they are photos that always inspire me. I love this color palette; the central photo is the corner next to my work space. I spend so much time staring at this exact image while I’m working on new designs.
This season and these photos are part of what inspired me to create my new line, The African Crowned Crane Necklace collection. Here's a teaser, until you see these charmers: tassels, in leather, silk & cotton, and African sliced vinyl beads, colors poppin’!
You may know that we are big fans of textiles, and we have found some gorgeous, one-of-a-kind pieces from Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso & India that will dazzle even the most hard-to-impress textile lovers. We will be adding these pieces to our website soon, but in the meantime come into the store and have a look!
Check out our friends, XIXA, playing their super rad psychedelic cumbia this Friday, March 11th at Hotel Congress...Wear your dancing shoes, because you won’t be able to stop! We carry their single in the shop, if you need some more Cumbia de Tucson to help you make it through the week!
