"Enjoying your treasures. Such a fun way to wake up on a Friday! I go to bed excited on Thursday. It gives me that little something to look forward to."
This Week I'm Inspired by the Refreshing Healing Power of NATURE
Our recent journey through Gatlinburg, Tennessee, continued as we headed into the Great Smoky Mountains and became enchanted by the rich, varied shades of nature. The greens were so lush and the tiny white mountain flowers so delicate in contrast with the majestic, melodic waterfalls.
I was twelve years old the last time I passed through these parts with my family. With my dad at the wheel and my mom reading Appalachian Mountain tales aloud, from the backseat my siblings and I absorbed the history, culture and lifestyle of the region, even passing men smoking corncob pipes in their rocking chairs on their front porches.
This time, the overlooks along the road winding through the Blue Ridge Mountains reinforced the vastness and fragility of the land. Imagine what it would have been like to walk across these mountains 500 years ago with the Cherokee on their land. With Asheville, North Carolina, as our destination, we arrived in time to search for local handicrafts, drive through the Biltmore Estate grounds and indulge in a 12 Bones BBQ dinner.
Selected Shibori T-Shirts are this week's Atelier Treasure.
Reflecting on nature and the lush tones of the season popping up in the fresh mountain air, I’m inspired this week by GREEN in my Atelier Treasures.
Outdoor recreation offers a simple and welcome change of pace, yet as we move into this new season, I am often wondering what to wear heading out for a bike ride, going on a hike or a gathering at a local outdoor restaurant. You, too?
Here are some hand-dyed tank tops that are perfect for NOW. Wear them around town on a museum crawl, for a walk through your local botanical garden or on an evening out. Pack them in your bag for a beach holiday by folding or rolling them into a neat, weightless bundle for easy traveling.
I love wearing these cotton tees with my hand-dyed silk sarongs - and wore one to a rooftop birthday gathering this week mixing pattern with pattern, accessorized with a Beaded Collar Necklace.
