Vintage inspirations

I was delighted to find a package in the mail last week from an online shop I just discovered on Etsy.com from LemonGrassJewels. Sweet handmade jewelry with vintage look. Posed it on a wooden fish carved and painted by my dad a few years ago. I like to be surrounded by vintage things from my family in my office. They inspire me to create. An old photo of my dad golfing, his fishing creel (I can still smell that stinky fish smell in our outdoor shanty where he cleaned his catch), an iron bunny from my Nana’s house where we drank from cool metal cups in the summer.
