paloma's nest

Looking for a wedding gift, mother's day gift or just need something to brighten your day? Click HERE...immediately. Paloma's Nest is nothing short of fabulous. Caroline Colom Vasquez crafts everything by hand from her home studio in Austin, Texas "with care, pride, and passion" and it shows. I was sold on this piece above for my bathroom even before I read the inspiration...

To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intellingent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
