Dreaming of Vacation

 Our theme for our Handmae Artist's blog ring is Vacation.
 When I think of going on vacation the first thing that comes to my mind is the beach. I would love go to the beach and hang out with my daughter and grandchildren. They live on Kauai. This is a picture of life at the beach. 


As I travel along in my mind  I would totally love to wear this beautiful watch that my friend Alix has created 

For long hours on a jet crossing the ocean, this beautiful watch with purple Czech glass beads that accent the band and a Swarovski crystal heart would be the perfect way to keep track of travel time. This handmade watch has a magnetic clasp closure and can be made to your desired length.
Alix is a fantastic artist that brings a sense of whimsy and femininity to the pieces she creates. She is a self taught artist and finds that not being confined to tradition allows her to be freer in her designs.

I would love to sit on on the beach and write down my feelings of my experience in a beautiful journal like the one I found at 
Blue Highways . Writing a poem, drawing a picture while watching the waves and listening to the ocean can be a very wonderful way to meditate. It's a very grounding experience. This is the journal I would love to take with me. I love the purple , pink and blue colors of this beautiful handmade journal.

This handmade journal measures 6 inches x 9 inches. It features 160 pages of paper where you can write, draw a picture  or whatever your heart desires.

I think having the right handbag to travel with is a must. And I know handbags. I make handbags everyday at
Thunder Rose Leather where John and I have been making quality handmade buckskin leather handbags for over 20 years.
This one would be perfect as a carry on handbag when flying and would be perfect to take to the beach.

This fringed leather tote measures 15 inches wide x 13 inches tall x 6 inches deep and has a comfortable flat strap that can be worn crossbody.
