Be Happy
Mrs. HappySunday -- September 30, 2012
I'd have to say I'm a pretty happy person by default. There's so many things that I'm thankful for everyday it's hard not be. My positive outlook must play some role in the daily improvement of my life so my advice to you is just to be happy and everything else will fall into place.

Hand-Forged Antique Rings
Goat & Kettle I stumbled upon The Venice Meet (held on the second Saturday of each month) a few weeks ago and was amazed by all the neat arts and crafts. One of the vendors, Goat & Kettle from Santa Monica especially caught my attention with jewelry made from antique "flat" skeleton keys dating back to the early 1900s. Each ring is special and unique and sure to put a smile on your face.

Local Artist from Topanga, CA
I met a talented local artist, Joel Robert Harris at The Seventh Annual Venice Beach Music Fest on September 8th. I loved the detail and simplicity in his black and white works and purchased a canvas as the perfect addition to my artsy home decor. Be sure to checkout his sketchbook online!

Mind the Gap
I went to a concert in Santa Monica to benefit Charity: Water, a non-profit organization that brings clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Mind the Gap was one of the bands that performed and blew me away with their upbeat tunes! Be sure to check out their music videos online.
