Gifts of Inspiration from the Vine

With the warmer days and increased sunshine of spring, I’m starting to think of the beautiful vineyards of Washington. I recently had the opportunity to see some of the new growth of 2014 out at White Heron Cellars and I have to tell you, I’m already getting ideas! I think the texture of the vines will translate really well to some upcoming etched designs! I’ve also gotten some inspiration from the vineyards for some new original jewelry display options for some of my winery consignment locations!

 

But meanwhile…. think this beautiful cat might be able (and willing) to share some of the wine it’s guarding?

 

This beautiful cat caught my eye and agreed to be photographed at White Heron Cellars!

My sweetheart and I recently took a mini-vacation to visit a friend up in Victoria, B.C; on our way home I was given a wonderful afternoon at The Butchart Gardens…. and I felt so inspired (and happy I brought my camera)! This is one of the many photographs I took during our visit and it will soon be available in Butterfly Sundries’ Etsy store!

But, keep checking back…. this flower has also inspired a new original pendant design which will be coming soon!
