dreams of paradise

dawn patrol

the most dreamy photographs have been popping up all over my favorite design blogs so i am quite happy to share the very first lovely snapshots captured around the island by jan from hazelnut cottage. iconic beach shots of hawaii tend to highlight the perfect wave, bikini babes, or turtles lounging in the sand which leaves something lacking for those of us who hold a more romanticized view of the world.

lucky for us, jan's photography transports viewers to enjoy the small moments in life with her lens focusing on slippers left on shore, fisherman waiting for the daily catch, and wistful memories of long lost swing rides. a sweet blush of nostalgia accompanies each photo which reminds me of how life slows down and becomes just a bit more subdued when the sun skips behind the clouds.

more peeks below . . .

springtime at hazelnut cottage

child of my heart

spring has barely sprung but hazelnut cottage creator jan avellana is busy crafting her popular jewelry line in preparation for mother's day. longtime readers know that the handstamped pieces are a sweet sentiment that can be personalized with the names of your little ones, a secret message, or whatever you please making the designs the perfect foil for tenderhearted mums.

for moms who prefer to keep their maternal instincts a bit more undercover, the recently introduced child of my heart design can be composed with one to three organically shaped circles as a little reminder of those you want to keep near your heart even when you are apart.
