Some of my favorite tunes at the moment. Be sure to follow this playlist of some new and old, folk, roots, bluegrass, newgrass, old time, some sensual, some raw, but never to be disappointed.
Elephant Revival has quickly become one of my favorite bands to date. I like to refer to their sound as Gypsy Soul Grass with elements of gypsy, celtic, americana and folk. check out this awesome song Rogue River, Live at Red Rocks.

Someone gifted me this lovely Deer Skull. Just to make it perfectly clear, I would never harm any animals, I am a huge animal lover, however, I do feel I can honor theses animals life through art.
With this particular piece, I decided to use it as a jewelry display so I cleaned it up really well, I used bleach but Im hearing it is better to just use peroxide. I found a dough roller, stained it a dark color for a nice contrast to the bone, then found a plate stand, and there you have a lovely bracelet display. This could be used in your art show displays, or even to show of your personal jewelry at home. How do you display your jewelry??? Feel free to leave a comment or email a picture and we can share your idea. More display ideas to come.
My office view from this past Sundays "Natural Life Music Festival. The weather was PeRfEcT, music was phenomenal and the people were lovely.
