Concerts and Creativity...With a Blog Hop On the Side!

I am so excited it is Thursday and I am returning as a co-hostess for Katie's Thursday Blog Hop!  Katie was so sweet to allow me a short sabbatical ...and I am thrilled to return!  I am also excited about today, because it is Mr. B's birthday and we are headed out for a good time singing Beatles music along the way!
 I will be visible and dramatic re-living those tunes with the LIVERPOOL LEGENDS and smiling on the dance floor.  Today, I am also pleased to introduce you to a new line which celebrates true artists in the fashion industry...ARTFUL HOME.  Every now and then I love a dramatic piece to reflect the creative side of me and Artful Home more than delivers that dramatic flair.
This is the SWALLOWTAIL TUNIC, hand made by artist MICHAEL KANE.  The garment is not even made until you order it.  He hand-dyed this product just for me...silk chiffon created with a technique called shibori from Japan. 

The ARTFUL HOME WINTER COLLECTION is stunning with unique, top quality artistic, dramatic selections some of you will love! You can literally wear your art in special ways not seen mass produced at a mall.

I know there are ladies out there who have a strong neutral foundation in your wardrobe, so all you do is invest in special, statement pieces.  Please spend some time on the website...and the sale selection as well...for those special pieces. They are amazing. Also, see my favorite selections on my ARTFUL HOME STYLE PINTEREST BOARD.  After you visit there, make sure and return here for the great reading in the best blog hop around....I will be humming selections from Norwegian Wood as I get ready for the fun...see you next week!

  9. OMG, I think I have a new favorite on you, Pam. Super boho-rific ... creative, fun, cool, chic! The tunic/poncho is amazing! The shoes were the perfect addition too.

  10. Ohhh... I went down the rabbit hole at Artful Home.. What a fantastic stuff they have. I pinned a lot of their shirts but unfortunately I cannot order them as I live in The Netherlands. Bummer. They really have nice clothes. Your shirt is also very much my taste. Fun and colourful. It expresses "I am a confident, creative person". Which you are. So well chosen.

  11. The tunic is so beautiful on you, Pam, awesome colours!
    I hope you had a wonderful party!!
