Tease & Tan, Blythe on Holiday






Away on Holiday, Evangeline came along for some island adventures. Getting a bit of Vitamin Sea on a little tropical island in the Pacific. She is becoming quite the little traveler, from California, NYC to Hawaii she is ready to see the world. I found some wonderful keepsakes in stores just her size, the cute lounge chair and the choice surfboard were the perfect addition for some fun island shots!  Looking forward to see where we will land next.

Once Upon A Blythe Gallery Exhibition, Australia

I am so honored to asked to participate in the upcoming Once Upon A Blythe Exhibition in Melbourne, Australia next month. The theme is Fairies and Folklore, I did not want to submit a piece that was in any way expected or obvious.  I decided since the Gallery show is in Australia, to honor the continents indigenous peoples…...the Aborigines. They have a tradition deep in folklore and tales told during what they call Dream Time, one of these tales is of a woman called Gnowee.  

The sun Goddess of the aboriginal people of Southeast Australia. Gnowee lived on the earth at a time when the sky was dark and people used torches to see their way. One day while she was gathering yams, her baby son wandered away. With a huge torch, Gnowee 

set off in search of her son, but she couldn’t find him. She continues to search, lighting the whole sky with her torch as she searches for her son. It is said that if she ever finds her son, the world would be plunged into eternal darkness.


 Traditional Aboriginal Dot Body Painting


Her Pull Rings are of Tiger's Eye, a member of the quartz gemstones with a radiant golden to red-brown colour, with a silky luster. This is a powerful stone that aids harmony and balance, and to release fear and anxiety. Traditionally carried as an amulet against curses or ill-wishing, and is known to give courage, self confidence and strength of will. Her beads consist of two styles of rich wooden hand carved, Golden filigree minis, Gold flecked glass and Smokey Quartz beads on brown satin ribbons.

 Gnowee's headpiece is made of genuine soft leather with golden chain detail
