Nature is pure inspiration any time of year, but it feels especially so during the summer.  When I look outside my window I see the veggies, herbs and flowers in my garden bushing out and growing with each day.  It fills my whole being with wonder, wouldn't you agree?  A small seed gets planted in the dirt and then it steadily grows into a display of beauty.  In so many ways, nature captures the heart of the artist and is a source of boundless inspiration.  I've picked out 4 nature inspired home decor items to make it easy to welcome in the beauty of nature into your home this summer!

Over the weekend, I went to a really beautiful crystal store and fell in love with just about everything in sight.  The beauty of naturally formed crystals from the womb of the Earth resonate such a soothing energy that it's hard to resist not walking out with a bag full of wonderful finds.  I'm not sure where I would put a collection of crystals the size of an entire store, so my collection today highlights alternative ways to enjoy these magical creations of Mother Nature!  I've hand picked 6 items to jump start your crystal collection - from the real thing to some really cool crystal shaped hand soap!  Enjoy!

I love the sound of birds after a long winter because it signals the return of warmer weather - or rather, flip flop weather!  I was sitting in a park the other day and instead of listening to my music on my headphones - I decided to close my eyes and listen to the birds.  The slight breeze carried their sweet voices through the air as they fluttered about and I was drawn to open my eyes and observe just how adorable birds are - have you ever noticed this?  Birds have influenced artists throughout the ages and they continue to be a source of inspiration for these modern day handmade artisans!  I wonder if maybe they too were out one day and happened to be uplifted by the beautiful chorus of their voices and inspired to create a piece of art?  I'd be curious to know - tell us in the comments below how birds inspire you!

I was out walking in the rain the other day with my handy umbrella when the wind started to pick up.  I soon realized that my umbrella was useless in such wind and opted to just walk in the rain and get wet.  Although I was quite annoyed at first, once I let go and embraced getting soaked - I then had a little moment with the rain and began to smile.  I saw the beauty of the rain falling all around me, I smelled the musty air, and felt the drops splatter on my face - how could I not notice how beautiful rain can be?  My collection today is directly inspired by my rain walk and I love seeing how rain inspires these handmade artists as well!

I didn't get my ears pierced until I was a teenager and since I couldn't wear them for so long myself, earrings have always been something I've been drawn to.  Now I love wearing earrings more than any other accessory and have a solid rotating collection of some awesome handmade beauties.  With the coming attraction of spring (it is around the corner, right?), I wanted to put together a collection of nature inspired earrings to wear in the warm spring sun!  Think short sleeve shirts, hair tied back, jeans and of course - my favorite flips flops while sporting a pair of these handmade beauties on your ears.  Can you feel it?  Casual and yet sophisticated - choose your FAV and get inspired for some warm spring weather!
