a new stole! the wedding stole.

:: introducing my latest custom stole :: 

the wedding stole. design copyright suzanne l. vinson. 

perfect for officiating weddings, unions, funerals, and those lovely liturgically white high holy days.  the ivory, white, and cream tones are combined though lace, silk, and cotton.  

loaded with age and texture, these vintage and modern fabrics are sewn together to create a story of its own.  the asymmetry is delicious.  i love this piece in every way!  

looking to order? wedding stole to get yours on my production schedule.

a call for wisdom stories and a call for witnesses.

 brave-hearted, creative, loving soul,

because you bless me through your stories...
because you share so much through your stories of how my daily wisdom cards have carried you through, picked you up, called your attention, and blessed others...

will you please share your stories + photos so we may all be witnesses?

share on your blogs
on instagram ((tag @slsvinson and/or #silvertreeart))
on twitter ((@silvertreeart))   
and other spaces where the light can shine thorough the cracks.   

please tag #silvertreeart #wisdomstories

while we don't all want to call attention to the good we do in the world, i know my daily wisdom cards have filled you up with so much creative sharing.   some of us are called to witness the good you put forth in the world.  you send packages to college students and tuck them in.  you fill cards with hand written words and place a card inside.  you leave gifts of kindness and a card behind.  not everyone has the same idea.  your sharing can inspire others to be present to a friend in need.  to take time to care for their mind, body, and soul.  to pause their busy, busy days and soak in the beauty of the present moment.  you have so much within you.  there's much to share.  please do.  ((and thank you!))

you fill my heart.  peace. light.

a 2015 calendar! now taking pre-orders!

hello, lovelies!  it's been a while.  i really, really need to create time in my daily living for this blog.  while i'd hoped the new site would be up and running at this point, these things have a time of their own.  even so, i'm happy you're here and i'll show up a little more often, too.  

new. new. new.  

these will be printed on 100 pound bright white cougar paper.  each design varies throughout your calendar and you'll receive an undated wisdom print, too.

these will ship before thanksgiving.  when you order using the etsy payment option in the shop, your card shouldn't be charged until your order is mailed from what i understand.  ((please let me know if i'm incorrect!))

peace and light to you and yours, lovelies.

re-learning. again and again.

one day this past week my love listed his priority items he hoped to accomplish that day when returning home from work.  my list was simple :: a shower and shave my legs.  some of you know.  you know that feeling of wanting the thing that many folks take for granted.  the shower that gets pushed because the wee one woke up, breakfasts need to be made. then lunch.  then there's that working from home thing.  and before you know it...it's the end of the day and you're still in your clothes from stretching.

after getting my shower and shaving my legs with an added removal of the nail polish.  my love asked, "do you feel better?"  why yes, i do.  i'm amazed when life's simple delights bring such pleasure.  it's true we don't need daily showers.  i certainly don't wash my hair every day, realizing it looks better with an every-other day wash.

yet, this isn't about hygiene.  i'm talking about taking care of yourself.  whatever that means.  some days for me it's about warm water and letting it cover my skin.  other days it's about that impromptu dinner among friends with accompanied laughter.

i'm re-learning to care for my sacred self.  to care for my soul.  and re-learning that lesson of knowing how much i have to offer others around me is limited by the care i take of myself.  i exercise now so that i am full of life and energy.  i'll paint my nails to bring delight and that wonderful pause in the motions of the day.

do you catch yourself living with delight?  do you savor the tastes that linger on your tongue?  do you embrace the subtle shifts and changes that can happen within yourself when you care for your sacred self? when you care for your soul?

i certainly hope so.  may today bring exactly what you need, lovely.  shower and all.  xo.
