Blumchen and Co
I love love love Halloween, one of my favorite Holidays of the year and it was my Grandma's Birthday, a fellow artist and designer who holds a place in my heart, she was always creating something on the holidays, that's why I love Blumchen and Co, here's a link to their fabulous Halloween items, I might add they are also located in NJ, near me.

 

Piddlestixs
My store Piddlestixs is a place that has been my labor of love and art healing since I laid eyes upon its structure 2 1/2 years ago, I'm always re-creating new vignettes and inventory inside the store, so it has to be a favorite link of mine to share with you, plus Piddlestixs houses amazing handmade artist works, and oddities.

My mother has been the biggest influence in my life, and her creativity continues to amaze me, especially her jewlery.

 

Marie Claire
I am a mix of Italian, French, and English with family born in those countries, so it's second nature to enjoy European flair and creativity. That's why I always stop by the Marie Claire Ideas blog and pick up their latest magazine when I can find it.
