Giveaway :: Golden Plume

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

{shop :: Facebook :: twitter :: blog

I am a California girl, through and through. I have dabbled in other states now and then but having been born and raised (and now raising my own children) has solidified the fact that this place will always be home, no matter where I end up. There is something about the idea of home that speaks to our innate ability to communicate with one another. We feel kinship with others who hail from the same  land we do and we identify certain aspects of ourselves as being particularly geographic in nature. Style is one of these things.

There are artists I tend to gravitate toward simply because their work makes me feel like I am home. It is no coincidence that Nita Blum from Golden Plume utilizes natural materials and focuses her aesthetic on her beachside surroundings on the coast of Southern California. If you want to know what “California Living” feels like, try donning a piece from Blum’s collection. You will swear you can taste the salt water on your lips and your skin will shimmer. This Turquoise and Bronze Feather Necklace is a personal favorite. And the Rosewood Chain Headpiece? This is pure California love, my friends.

Golden Plume is giving away one Pink Jade Nugget Necklace to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Tuesday, March 5th.
Please visit Golden Plume and tell us what place you consider “home.” 
Start checking the winners box on Monday, March 11th, to see if you’ve won!

    I liked the blue sea glass wrapped in gold necklace

    I like going back to my parents home. I didn’t grow up there, but all the same furniture is there and it always smells like home made bread!

    home is where my heart is, so wherever my husband and pets are is home to me!

    Home is a tricky subject… I get homesick for my family in Kansas, but I definitely left my heart in Manitou Springs, CO, as far as a connection with an actual place goes. 🙂

    Home is wherever I have my Bible and my man.  The details are up for debate.

    My husband makes any place home for me. It also helps if there are wood floors and bright windows, lots of plants, good meals coming together in the kitchen, and a pair of slippers on my feet.

    Home is wherever my family is. We’ve moved houses quite a few times, but wherever that crazy bunch all gets together on Christmas day – that is home.

    Home is gumtrees dancing in the wind, waking up to the chatter of the birds at the break of dawn, afternoons languid in the humidity sticky with salt from the beach and gorging on mangoes and icecream, dripping in the heat. I’ve swapped that for bonjours and bisous in Paris for now (an adopted home I love) but nothing will compare to the blinding sunshine, space and love of home in Australia…

    My home is here in austin, tx! This is home to me because this is where we started our family, we got married and just had our first baby girl here! No place in the world can make me as happy as it feels to be home here in austin!

    Home for me is the hometown I grew up in…I wasn’t born there, but I lived in 5 different houses in that same town. It’s where I had a best friend in elementary school, where I graduated high school, where I survived several crushes on boys, and where I had enjoyed several years as a child while my parents were married.

    although i have lived in l.a. for 16 years, and married for 15 years, home will always be my parents house in new jersey. i have no desire to move back there, but it is the place i most associate with “being home.”

    My hometown is in the South, and even though I live in Oregon, I still have my southern roots.  Every month I change the wreath on the door, I ditch my shoes as soon as I’m home, and always have some sweet tea for friends who stop by.   I’ll always be a southern girl at heart and home.

    Anne H. says:

    Our very homey house with my daughters, husband and dog. It is where I can take a deep breath and relax after every trip or ordinary day. It is where I feel the happiest when all my beds are full, all is right with the world.

    The library.  No matter where we move to (and I actually love to pack-up, move, unpack, and re-nest) once I am familiar with the neighborhood library, I feel settled and at home.

    Nicole Arias says:

    My hometown in Puertorico. I know live in Florida, I have no family here. Having to leave my loved ones was not an easy thing. Every summer ever since I moved I would spend it In PR. Those would be the best memories of the year, with my family. Everything just feels so right being there, surrounded by people who’ve watched me grow up into the woman I know am and knowing they love me very much, and I too love them so very much. It’s just the best feeling. I’m all about Family. Living without them everyday in this place is not home, but being with them. They truly give me the homey feeling I love!

    Home for me has to be a place of comfort. Home to me will always be the place where I can feel a inner peace within my soul. A place where I can breathe and feel free from all the insanity in this world. My home is where the grass is greener on the other side. My home is where there is beautiful colors of nature. I call my home wherever my heart leads me to. So, I consider my home all the beautiful surroundings in New York where I can sit back and relax, without any interruptions. Home is where I am most safe and comforted.

    Home is a place where your heart feels the most content. For me that is in the arms of the love of my life, my boyfriend, and seeing that gorgeous cheeky smile that my daughter wears so well.
    Physically, it’s those beautiful scenic places that I see when I drive past going up into mountain range or into the bush, I look outside my window, breathe in the fresh air and think ‘I could live here, and I would be happy.’

    I grew up in Texas – as a teen I was proud of the fact that I didn’t have an accent, and was ready to move elsewhere after I finished college. After just a couple years in Chicago I wish I did have an accent and find myself with extreme nostalgia for all things southern. Houston, Texas will always be home.

    Lauren Duffy says:

    When my two babies are resting their heads on my chest. That is home to me.  Nothing comes close to feeling the warmth and innocence of two miraculous angels and to know that I brought them into the world. Best feeling ever.

    Sitting on the sun-warmed sand with the salty wind whipping through my hair, the surf crashing rhythmically on the sand, and the gulls squawking and dipping through the air. There is something cyclical and maternal that draws me to the ocean constantly. It livens and lulls me.

    Erin says:

    There are several places that really feel like home to me, but the place I feel most at ease is propped up in bed, reading or talking next to my husband! The bedroom is our little sanctuary, regardless of where that bedroom is. The cozy feeling of being side-by-side in the bed, especially on a weekend with no plans to make us get up and at ’em, is just the best.

    Ahus – place so small, it is barely on the map. The wind is bitter and the waves are grey, but between the two exists a feeling that can only be called home.

    Home is where I grew up – my parents house and the neighborhood. When I go home to visit it’s almost like I never left : )

    Home is Western Washington State. We have everything here within a couple hours drive, mountains, rain forest, beaches, big beautiful city, an amazing music scene. It’s home, and if anyone ever complains of the rain (it’s really drizzle people, you barely get wet) and the grey skies in winter I suggest they move and hope they do so before they see the most amazing summers around and decide to stay.

    Home for me is a cup of green tea, red lipstick, and the Word of God. As long as I have those 3 things, surrounded with people I love….that’s home.

    For me, it’ll always be Upper Michigan, on Lake Superior.

    Thanks for the beautiful giveaway!

    Lauren P says:

    Wherever I’m with my mom, dad, sister, or husband (all in different states) is where I’m home. After all, home is in the heart, not the house.

    Home is wherever I can wear whatever I want, and still feel comfortable. So if I’m walking around wearing my legwarmers over fleece pants with white socks and slippers, then its because its a place I feel is, my comfortable safe place, my home.
