...have you ever met a seaweed farmer??

...hello there ~

may i present to all you fabulous,
supportive readers,
my new friend: cecil

these are all my dear readers...

* cecil says  "enchanting to meet you all!"

he is my new sea silk ribbon foreman!
he will be a great help!!

as harvesting all those luscious ribbons is quite time consuming
although sooo very worth it :)

i knew when i saw an ad in the daily sea times,
for a seaweed farmer looking for work.
(looks like us land creatures aren't the only ones just trying to earn an honest days wage!!)

as i was sayin'

i saw his ad
and knew right away,
he was a perfect fit:)

so i contacted him with my proposal
and he was more than delighted for a career change!

* i adore his tiny crown

* i gave it to him as a welcome gift
with the promise that he may come and go freely to the beautiful sea

...just as long as he let's me come along!!

* he happily agreed

* he also changed the spelling of his name to * seacil *

* he figured now that he was working with silks, it just sounded a little more elegant!

* i think it sounds the same, but i humor him and tell him it's fabulous!!

he has been helping me create a few new pieces in the studio this week

pretties to wear to the sea...

but first,
seacil wanted to show you his new bed

it's a bed of sea silks of course!!

* i love that he is so easily entertained!

here is a lovely cuff braclet
that i shall wear on my birthday...

i found the silver Rumi focal piece at

i am charmed by what it reads...

i dyed some silk in a muted sea rose shade
and sewed freshwater pearls and sequins in the same shades...

they remind me of sand bubbles...

what do you think?

very often,
i find a really lovely item
that i can embellish a little further
so that it becomes my very own
and a one of a kind...

i actually dyed my cuff ribbons to match this jacket
because at the sea,
it is breezy
and find i almost always need a pretty little something to wear extra

love, Love, LOVE the scalloped collar
and the ruffled edge pockets...

i added this ruffle peplum to the back...

for that little something extra.

 i used a vintage slip

* it was just how i envisioned it!

* i also tried ironing this jacket

* and steaming it!!

* i even bought special ironing spray

* did i mention i ironed this??!

i have come to accept the wrinkles...

 besides, i figure
if every one else is busy looking at my jacket wrinkles,
they probably won't notice mine!

* i have come to accept those too

* seacil says i don't have any!!

* ahhh, seasil, you already got the job!!

the rosettes with freshwater pearl centers
are like icing on the cake:)

i can't wait to wear my new pretties!

and seacil says
he'll show me a most tasty restaurant by the sea to wear it to after a day at the beach!

* thanks seacil!
i just know we are going to the best of friends!!
