OK, so I'm a complete mess right now. I've had a cold that's been hanging on for nearly a month and I just can't shake it. Last minute travel to England to see my husband's family and jet lag has exacerbated the problem, I'm sure. Not to mention a 24 hour delay on our return home (airline mechanical problems)! I rarely get sick, so it really knocks me down. I don't feel like doing anything. We finally made it home this past Sunday evening after spending the night in New York on our return. That's OK, though. It was a good trip and I'd much rather be on a plane that didn't have mechanical problems!
Valentine's morning I happily woke in my own bed and my day was instantly brightened (never mind that I couldn't breathe) by a convo from Milla & Olya of AllimYalo with a link to their beautiful, tropical-hued Red Coral & Turquoise treasury.There are so many bright and colorful items starting with jenijunk's cheerful vintage polka-dot slingbacks. Mishky's large lizard bracelet is fun and funky (that beadweaving must have taken forever!) and JessicaDoyle's print, The Nameless Ones no1 is cheerful and vibrant. I'm certain I used to have a tea set similar to these play teacups from becaruns when I was a kid (in pink, I think). AidaCoronado's turquoise embroidered Mexican tunic makes me long for a beach vacation and I love the classic simplicity of PearlModern's vintage coral handbag. VanCocoaDesigns offers a fun satin ponytail holder and LuckyBluebirdArt's simple and clean print Coral Coral appeals to my eye for minimalism. LeBijouxPrecieux's earrings of turquoise and red cry for the perfect white linen sundress and LilacSaloon's wallflowers would add a quirky and unexpected touch to any room (even the listing photo itself is beautiful!). The coral verdigris earrings by iomiss have a wonderful, casual vibe that seem to compliment the organic feel of driftwoodinterior's fine art print. I love LidDDesignsBoutique's feminine and playful leather bow ring and SymbologybyJJ's turquoise and coral cuff has just the right amount of sparkle. Finally, who needs the upkeep of a saltwater aquarium when one can opt for kesslercraftsman's amazing Coral II fused glass vessel.
AllimYalo's collection definitely has put me in the mood for summer sun and I thank them for including my four strand turquoise bracelet in their treasury. Maybe while I'm in bed with my laptop, I should start researching our next vacation spot! Be sure to also stop by their shop which is full of the most dainty jewelry pieces of polymer clay resembling porcelain miniature teacups and luscious chocolate confections. It's like tea time for your earlobes!
