A new chapter is here...

Hello sweet friends! It's certainly been a long time since I did a post! The last one I did was in September and I mentioned I was in a new chapter of my life. Well here it is.... My daughter whom many of you know (Melanie) has been working all year with her brothers and myself on a fashion accessory line of bracelets. 

For me, it's been wonderful helping with the designs. We have a private joke that I was "allowed" to design a few of them geared towards my love of vintage design and was given a "row" in the Etsy shop that would have a few bracelets I designed myself. While Melanie loves vintage styles too, and she approved, mine are more of a style that would be geared towards my girlfriends and would feature vintage images I love. I think my love of miniatures comes through in them too. Above in the photo is one of them, the pink vintage oven is something I've always adored and so I wanted to celebrate that era by making one wearable. Isn't that fun and unique?! And it's featured with white coral beads which to me, are somewhat like sweet little pearls. Perfect with Jeans and a T or a pretty pink vintage styled dress too!

Melanie's designs are inspired by the preppy/classic style she has always loved. She has many different designs she features , so I've shared some photos below. Here are her collection of Sea colors and images that are surrounded by beautiful natural stones in colors that are just so beautiful!

She has also created beautiful patterns for cuffs and bangles too!  I love this one below , it's appropriately named "Summer House" because it reminds her of a pattern she would use in her summer home. The cuffs and bangles are 24K antiqued gold plated and the tone of the gold has a vintage look I happen to love!

There are pretty white leather bracelets too with images that feature her brother Ryan's artwork and their love of nautical design... Wouldn't this be perfect for a summer clam bake? The red and white striped fabric on the side is dipped in salt water and it helps to have this unique distressed casual look!

And..... Of course it wouldn't be summer with a little red/white and blue! 

Melanie and her brothers have always been around horses and ridden since they were little. We've owned horses and I was a trainer and instructor for a long time when they were little. So their love of equestrian design is something they feature in the collections too. This snaffle bit bracelet below and gold polka dot combo is a favorite of mine. 

And of course.... everyone loves pink!!! Right? And if it's floral and gingham, ever better!

A summer collection needs a little whimsy, so we both came up with the idea to do "Picnic Bracelets". I've never seen anything on the market like these, and I just adore our idea.  Both Melanie and I love picnics and that was always reflected in my miniature sculpting days, and now I'm so happy we came up with a way to enjoy that idea in a bracelet! The lobsters and pink gingham are adorable together and such a conversation piece. And our custom printed picnic design I was in love with! Again, another fun conversation piece!

The boys and she helped create a beautiful Men's collection of bracelets also! These are so classic and simply styled but look perfect as a compliment to a watch or alone...

And anchors for summer, with navy blue and white wrapped cotton on the side...

They can be made in any color combination to coordinate with the perfect men's wear.

I happen to love this style on Men and think it's perfectly classic and preppy looking!

There are many more designs and styles in Hampton Ivy's Etsy shop, and I hope you love them 
all too!

They will be listed for sale later today and I'm so excited to share this for Melanie and the guys. They have worked so hard and I've enjoyed this new aspect and dive into fashion and style myself! If I sound passionate about it all, it's the Momma in me of course. I couldn't be prouder and I have to say, this idea of a family business is new for me, but I'm loving every minute of it and I'm excited to help with the designs ahead too! That is, if Mel still allows me a "row" in the shop :)

Thank you so much to my girlfriends and readers (one in the same) for always being so supportive and sweet to Mel and the boys and your support on facebook and instagram and the blog here has always been something I love about all of you!

I hope you have a great Summer and I hope to get back to blogging again more often! I always stop by everyone's blog and miss it, so it's a must do for me!  
Happy Summer!!

Hugs and love, Cynthia xo

Carbajal, 37, a Coast Guard pilot since 2009, said he had never been flagged down before by someone who needed to be rescued. It took about 15 minutes for the rescuers to fly the man to Nome, where, he said, the man insisted on walking himself to a waiting ambulance.

카지노사이트 said...

“You could tell he was starting to come off of the adrenaline, I think, and started to realize what happened,” he said. “He did not want to get in the gurney.”

카지노사이트 said...

The Coast Guard helicopter had been flying from Kotzebue to Nome, where the crew had been assigned the next day to fly a team of scientists to search the coastline for dead whales, walruses and seals.

A Catholic priest allegedly downloaded a popular gay dating app onto his smartphone years ago, perhaps assuming it would keep his secret.

카지노사이트 said...

This week, Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill stepped down from his job as top administrator for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops after a newsletter said it used his location data from the Grindr app to determine he was frequenting gay bars.

카지노사이트 said...

What stands out about this particular incident isn't that it's improbable, but that it's the exact worst-case scenario privacy experts have been warning about for a long time. Personal data is collected, sold and bought by a tangle of app developers, data brokers and advertising companies with little oversight. The biggest shock may be that it didn't happen sooner.

카지노사이트 said...

"This is the first instance that I know of, of this data being used by a journalistic entity to track a specific person and weaponize their private, secretly collected information against them," said Bennett Cyphers, a staff technologist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a digital-rights organization. "This is exactly the kind of privacy threat advocates have been describing for years."

카지노사이트 said...

There is still much to be learned about how the priest's private data could have made the journey from his smartphone into the hands of a Catholic newsletter's writer. The newsletter, The Pillar, didn't name the source of the data or clarify how it obtained the revealing location information, which it says spanned three years. But the story implies it started with data that Grindr allegedly shared with advertising partners and data brokers in the past that was then legally sold by a data broker.

카지노사이트 said...

In a statement posted to Twitter defending the article and the anonymity it granted the data provider, method and funder, The Pillar's editor in chief JD Flynn said it weighed the balance between an individual's privacy and public interest, and was "confident in our deliberation." He added that "technology accountability has been an issue of importance among church leaders for quite some time."
