The Little Branch

…She was born to be free, let her run wild in her own way and you will never lose her…

“Wildflower; pick up your pretty little head,
It will get easier, your dreams are not dead.”
― Nikki Rowe

Were not the gods forms created like me and you, mortal, transient?

“When someone is searching then it might easily happen that the only thing his eyes still see is that what he searches for, that he is unable to find anything, to let anything enter his mind, because he always thinks of nothing but the object of his search. Searching means: having a goal. Finding means: being free, being open, having no goal.”
Hermann Hesse

Here we are, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.

“It lay heavily in her hands, the crystal face gleaming, the golden body exquisitely machined. It was very like a clock, or a compass, for there were hands pointing to places around the dial, but instead of the hours or the points of the compass there were several little pictures, each of them painted with extraordinary precision, as if on ivory with the finest and slenderest sable brush.” – Phillip Pullman, The Golden Compass

Give your heart and soul to me, And Life will always be La Vie En Rose….

 

Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon. – Nat Wolff

Jazz stands for freedom. It’s supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don’t be a perfectionist – leave that to the classical musicians. – Dave Brubeck

 

PocketGacha is starting it’s September Round on September 15, 2017. KraftWork has made a beautiful Shotgun Jazz Club. The craftsmanship of this collection is beyond beautiful and is a must have for those music lovers as well as lovers of all things vintage.

I also did a teaser video of the Shotgun Jazz Club Gacha Set by KraftWork which you can watch above. I really enjoyed putting it together and how this collection was able to inspire me to create something that I am truly proud of.

Love Looks Not With The Eyes, But With The Mind..

Come live with me, and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove
Of golden sands, and crystal brooks,
With silken lines, and silver hooks
~ John Donne ~

..You Marry The Person Who You Cannot Live Without… (LuxeBox August 2017)

 

We seek the comfort of another.
Someone to share and share the life we choose.
Someone to help us through the
neverending attempt to understand ourselves.
And in the end,
someone to comfort us along the way.

– Marlin Finch Lupus

 

I normally would have an unboxing video to go along with this post but I simply didn’t have the time or the drive to record a video at the moment. If I record one in the next week I will add it to this post, but I at least wanted to get a picture with the amazing items from this month.

If you didn’t join the Luxe Box in time for the month and you would like to get the items, there are two different ways that you can get it. First you can join the Luxe Box group on the 15’th of the month after it’s been delivered for double the price until 12am of the 16’th of that month or Secondly you can join when enrollment begins on the 1’st of the month and go to the Luxe Box Boutique and buy any of the previous Luxe Boxes. All of this information is listed on the Luxe Box FAQ. All previously released Luxe Boxes are available at the Luxe Box Boutique for the cost of 2000L. To receive the latest Luxe Boxes, it costs 1500L to join the group every month before the 15’th when enrollment ends and the box is delivered. To see what’s in the boxes of previous months, check out the Luxe Box Catalog.

You can find out even more information about Luxe Box; such as designers for the month & contests to win a free Luxe Box on their WebsiteFacebook & Flickr

..Idle Summer Day..

 

Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds. – Regina Brett
