Featured Artists Theme: Vacation

 Good Morning,

Ah, the Summer Vacation, I remember those.  Most people can't or don't take them any more for whatever reason that may be, but it is fun to think about going someplace exotic, or tropical, perhaps to another country or state you have never been to before.

This week's Featured Artist for the blog ring is none other than myself.  I think we can take care of those vacation accessory needs!  You may shop either The Alchemists Vessel on Handmade Artists or The Alchemists Vessel on Etsy.

Going to the beach? How about these adorable Sea Horse earrings.  Perfect for Steampunk Summer fashions or just something to match sand and surf, you'll look fabulous in these highly detailed earrings.

"Starry, Starry night, paint your palette blue and grey..." Vincent, Don McLean.

Although written about or inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, the song is a wonderful tribute to the beauty that is a Summer evening sky.  These perfect little stars will do nicely as an accessory for your warm starry nights this summer.
