    xoxo, juliette

  2. Purple polish - cool! My daughter has just bought the most gorgeous purple grey. Love your journey picture! ♥♥

  3. My turquoise toes went to the Village of Lewiston, near Niagara Falls on Monday! It is a VERY artsy place and husband and I had fun and good food!

  4. Kolleen, I just posted a new bracelet I made called "Colene's Journey"!! And now you're on a journey with purple toes (of course, so are mine!). Too funny, sistah :)

    My journey is celebrating my man's birthday this weekend with good friends and groovy music.


  5. I am so glad you are having a good summer..and purple toes are perfectly sweet..I am really not sure of my destination this summer but I am having a good time getting lots sweet scarf sister,..

  6. oooooooooh!!! PURPLE toes!
    how popsicle,
    grape crush,
    harold's crayon
    precious perfect!
    oh, & yes, ...journey..
    the words cracks our heart open
    in a way that is deeper & i conjure up
    something like walking in a beautiful forest
    with a stick & a purpose...
    as for my own, i have been gifted
    with precious friendship encounters,
    great laughter, hard work, sweet time w/our children, & flitting in & out of dreams.
    speaking of dreams,please give your mom a hug for me. :)

  7. the bird footprints on the beach are so cute!

  8. oh wow! you're in the midwest!!! we'll be journeying to chicago next week...then indianapolis for a couple of days to see my husband's parents.
    lovely that you are relaxing near some water with those cute toes up in the air!

  9. How fun; my journey has been inside, trying to find my creative niche, while having a house full of teens...what was I thinking! lol~

    I need to head to the beach and clear my head~
    Love the purple~xXx

  10. I love the word journey also! We've had a pretty quiet summer so far with the kids being in their camps and such. My husband and I are leaving for Lake Placid, NY tomorrow for 5 days (by ourselves) and at the end of August the whole family (parents, siblings, etc) are going on a cruise to Bermuda! I think I'll polish my toes with a nice blue in honor of the islands and the water :)

  11. oooh id love to be sitting there too and painting my toe nails purple - how fabulous! I love journey too afterall "its not the destination that is important, but the journey itself" xxx

  12. Hi sweet friend. Where have i been this summer? Well, mostly home, sitting by the new pool, which is really right where I want to be. But we did take a journey to Elko, NV for a friends wedding. It was really beautiful there. Oh, and we went to the Oregon Country Fair...not your average country fair mind you...this was a fair out in the woods. Full of fairies and magic and music-it was so unique and so incredibly beautiful. I wish I had more pictures to share. PS yesterday I bought some WONDERFUL colors for my toes-now I just need to paint them and I can't wait to show you! xo

  13. Also, I really wish you would have some prints for sale-I would love to have some of your beautiful, inspiration here at home with me!

  14. I haven't been to enough places yet! But off so Spain soon to kick back and both rest and site see :)

    Happy summer to you.


  15. i think my favorite {shhhh...don.t tell my family} would have to be the time i spent with my very bestest heartwing sister in her most beautiful and peaceful home on the beach in carpinteria california.
    that one wins.
    sooooo soul.filling!
    i miss you dear.

  16. i love that you are having such a wonderful summer. It makes my heart smile.

    My summer journeys:
    * traveling deeper into myself.
    * venturing out on my bicycle
    * soaking in the hot weather

  17. Lovely post!! I'm so glad you're enjoying your Summer :) some good friends are visiting me so I'm more than happy!

  18. Do your mom and dad live there? How nice! We went near you this summer :) I am loving the west coast...

  19. Hey lovely lady,

    This summer I am on a journey to become a better painter:-) I currently have pink toes that turn apricot in the sunshine, but last week they were blue that turned to lavender in the sun! Gota love that sister!!

    I'm exhausted, I have to go back to work tomorrow and I'm not ready. I had a ton of orders to do (which is good), i haven't unpacked yet, and I got a 48 hr virus that has left me exhausted. I know work is going to be a mess tomorrow too.

    Wish me luck, I'm going to need it.

    I miss you pretty lady. Hope you are having a wonderful time with your parents:-)

  20. Hello again darling :) I forgot to let you know that I gave a you a lovely award, you can see it here:
    Cherry on Top Award

    Hope you have a sweet Monday my dear
