Just a Nail!

Cartier has always produced great watches, but their jewelry was of course mainly focussed on the women’s market. In some rare occasions the French luxury brand releases unisex collections and the brand new ‘Juste Un Clou’ line is just that and people are really into it.
The idea is simple and the name says it all: Juste Un Clou, ie. Just A Nail. The line includes bracelets and rings with and without diamonds, in a series of precious metals.

My favorite bracelet is Cartier love bracelet which I sadly lost somehow!!

Burlap, Burlap Everywhere!

 I guess it was back in the 70's with my first house that I did burlap padded walls in one room.  It had a great affect and wasn't crazy expensive.  Today we are seeing almost everything made with burlap.  A natural color and fiber....sometimes bleached but it has a rustic, relaxed look that is timeless.

Mother Nature the World's Best Designer!!

Just back from my trip to the Canadian Rockies to visit our son Andrew in Banff, Alberta, Canada and couldn't help but be in awe around ever curve of the road or hiking trail we took!
Lake Louise, Emerald Lake, Moraine Lake and Johnson Canyon were highlights as well as the many, many waterfalls with the snow still melting from the mountain tops.
There is a train ride from Calgary to Vancouver that is awesome going through the mountains with glass roof train cars.
Grizzly bears, elk, mountain goats, moose ....keep your eyes open to get a peek at them, as they are the lucky ones to live in this gorgeous place!!
Planning a holiday..this makes for a adventurous and spiritual trip!!
