Last weekend was spent knee deep in dirt and weeds and roots and water. Now that spring is here, we are working on our backyard, trying to create an outdoor haven to enjoy this summer. It felt as though our “Flourish” theme was manifesting itself in my neighborhood and I felt myself appreciating the smallest bit of color, the tiniest sprigs of bloom. I looked at our vacant backyard and imagined gems of flowers brightening my eyeline, vegetables ripe and ready to be picked, a myriad of eye-catching bedazzlement. I realized that I was imagining jewelry. That’s why we wear it, right? We adorn ourselves when we feel the flourish.
Folks, there was no other way to convey our next contributor to you than with their own words. “Sarah Austin created Fig Tree Jewelry & Accessories with one simple mission: to inspire sharing and happiness through beauty and great fashion design.” Fig Tree Jewelry is the flourish in the form of an accessory. I am obsessed with the Anna Labradorite and Gold Bangle and have convinced myself that my garden will succeed if I own this bracelet. Stranger things have happened.
