Glorious Day!

Well, finally after days of gloomy weather and wind, it looks like the sun has decided to make a guest appearance! The weather is wonderful! So, if you have a chance today, stop and smell the flowers, feel the breeze on your face, listen to the sounds of the wind through the trees, and gaze at the gloriously blue sky! Here's to hoping that you have a wonderfully beautiful day ahead of you too! (below are some pictures that hopefully inspire your day)

New Listings

Hi all! Well, Monday is almost over, so here's to that! Actually, I have to say that this was a pretty good Monday. Hardly even felt like a Monday! Beautiful weather and a fantastic day with my daughter! Can't really top that no matter what day of the week it is! Anywho, I was able to list a few new pieces today. Here they are:

"Classic Love Story"
- inspired by Romeo and Juliet and my
upcoming trip to Verona, Now that's amore!

"Ma Petite Fleur" in pink
- just like cotton candy in the form of a
rose for your finger! How fun!

I have also been hoarding, I mean collecting, a lot of vintage pieces lately. I hope to incorporate them into some terrific new designs! Be on the lookout for them as well as upcoming blog, facebook, and twitter sales! Good night and have a happy Tuesday!

Going Back to Europe

Well, it's been almost 7 years, but I am finally going back to Europe! I fell in love with Italy on my honeymoon years ago, and always said I would return. Sometimes life has other plans for you! Well, it looks like my time to return has come. I have a ticket to Venice for June and I am beyond excited! We are going to travel through Austria, possibly some of Germany, and back to my beloved Italy! Hoping it will be a fantastic trip! Unfortunately Eclectic Orchid will be on vacation for periods of time over the summer. But I hope to find some wonderful pieces to create with when I return home! Scattered about are a few pics from my last trip to Positano, Italy. Husband and I look so young!
Hope everyone is having a terrific week! Ciao!

New Pieces

I have been working on new pieces to add to Eclectic Orchid, and I have to say that my newest are quickly becoming my favorites! They are colorful, sparkly, and fun! Now, if only I could find more time to list them! Let me know what you think!
