Taste the Orient in your own backyard

This month’s Genre, with an East Asian theme, is just about to wrap up.  The offerings at Genre are easily one of the best bargains on the grid.  You can escape to the Orient without ever leaving home with the addition of one of Circa Living’s Ayumi Tea houses. There is a color for every taste, and at 100L a piece, that is a price that fits into anyone’s budget, complete with the amazing detail and quality Circa Living is known for.

Circa Living is also offering their Ayumi Sitting sets, that coordinate with the tea house color of your choice, also only 100L.  This round of Genre wraps up on Sept 12, and when the goodies move to the store, the prices go up, so hurry over while you can to add a little Asian flare to your decor.

When it’s time to change…then it’s time to change

Look what I found shopping in my own inventory.  I think I like. Oh the surprises you find when you try to make sense of the chaos.  “When it’s time to change, you’ve got to rearrange, from who you are into what you’re gonna be.” lyrics from When It’s Time to Change by: The Brady Bunch

Do you believe in coincidence?

Do you believe in coincidence?  I for one tend to believe that things happen for a reason, and that if you follow your gut, listen to that inner wisdom that advises you, it is often the best course of action you can take.  For instance, sometimes when I am out and about, I spy an item that inspires me, speaks to me even, and says “you must be mine.”  It gets the wheels of creativity turning.  I dont’ know if it is beckoning to me or I to it, but I find I must heed the call.  When I stumbled across the Geisha Girl dress by Zanze House of Couture, in rich oranges and tans, it reminded me of autumn leaves, but with an unexpected Asian twist.  I had to take it home.  But that is not the end of this story.

It is funny how life works sometimes.  Shortly after purchasing the dress, the designer Zzoiezee sent me an IM to ask me about my shopping experience.  We got to chatting, I shared a bit of my work with her, and shortly thereafter I was surprised and delighted to be invited to blog for Zanze.  So you will be seeing her fresh perspective and unique designs in my posts on a more frequent basis going forward.  It all started with a dress that insisted it must come home with me, and I followed my gut.  Who beckoned whom, I must wonder…and again I will ponder; is there really such thing as a coincidence?
