The Mystic Wynd blew...

Cute bookmark
I will not be doing much of the talking today for my weekly Best team feature :) I am extremely lucky to have the opportunity to feature a very special lady who's goal is nonetheless to please and reassure. My Feature is on the lovely Mrs. Karen of Mystic Wynd I love the story behind the name if her shop! here it is

"An awareness of peace and love rose anew, As the spirit found truth and the Mystic Wynd blew..."

That line is a line from a poem I wrote a while back. It is a poem about life and learning to embrace the idea of being true to ourselves and learning not to care too much about whether we're up to the scrutiny of others.

Her store is full of amazing jewelry that fits any person, style, religion or income.

Here is a bit about Mrs. Karen

Born and raised in the Windy City (Chicago, Il), I was fortunate to have grown up in a culturally diverse, ethnically rich, "neighborhood" where everyone knew everyone else, we were able to keep our doors unlocked, girls actually couldn't wait until Mom or Grandma or Aunt Sally taught them to crochet or knit or do any of the other handcrafts that adorned our homes, our wardrobes, our places of worship and even sometimes made it into the little shop on the corner to be sold.

Im so in love with this turquoise necklace!
Mrs. Karen is currently living in Arizona, she had 3 beautiful kids, 3 awesome step kids and 7 wonderful grand kids!!! The diversity in her shop has really caught my attention, I see so many treasures just waiting to be picked up. I couldn't say it better than the creator herself, here is what she has to say about her beautiful pieces:

My creations are designed in the hopes of igniting that special spark of uniqueness that lies within us all. Some things are elegant, some are fun, some are outlandish, some are colorful, some are calming - but the great thing is that I know there is someone out there who will recognize something that just makes them feel good about themselves!

Well without further adieu I present you with some of my faves <3
Isnt this just gorgeous???


Im in love with the florals!
