Dec 7, 2013 | Inspiring Products

Each week, I shine a spotlight on a few creations that I’m particularly proud of.  May you be inspired – and perhaps find a little something to nourish your soul.  Click here to see all the posts in this series. 

PS: All of the products featured below (and more) are sold online via Garden Gallery Works (a local shop here in the Portland area), but if you’re looking for signed/matted prints and/or originals, you can get these in my online shop International customers, Garden Gallery is HAPPY to ship worldwide. Please email them at gardengalleryorders@gmail.com to get started. 

Today we’re spotlighting gift ideas for the people in  your life who SHINE! And the Shine tea towel is an awesome hostess gifts if I do say so myself! The white background and pops of color with ric rac trim… friends, they’re just so sweet! I love these, big time. Available for purchase online right here.
Surrender your seriousness. Yes, yes, yes. I need that to be a daily mantra, no? This little 6×6 is available online here.  Celebrate Everything wall art here.

A sweet gift for the garden lover in your life! Tin bird house has the words, “be true, shine” and is available for purchase here. 

They’re artful magnetic photo displayers! There are four of them, and I’m thinking they’d make a completely thoughtful gift for any occasion! Did I mention that they each come with a super adorable oversized magnet? Check out the Shine brightly magnetic photo holder here.

Perfectly sized for your phone, cash and a few cards! We adore the Shine brightly wristlet. You can purchase it online right here. 
We adore the Shine Charm Necklace! It’s vintage inspired, super sweet in person and perfect for layering. Available for purchase online here. 

These metal tags are double sided for twice the sweetness. With 12 in all, these babies are super sturdy, substantial little gifts! You gotta trust me on this one. They. Are. Awesome. See the entire collection here. The Shine Tag is right here.

What better way to start your morning then to be reminded that YOU are a gift to this world! The Shine Mug is in stock right over here.

The perfect size canvas for gifting (6×6)! With the perfect reminder, ‘no dimming necessary!’ Available right over here. Like this size? See all our 6×6 canvases here.

Can I just say how highly delightful these key chains are! Love the double-sided medallions. Love the mix of ribbons. Love how they look clipped onto tote bags, purses, and backpacks – the tiniest bit of artful love. This one reads ‘a charming life’ on one side and ‘no dimming necessary, shine brightly on the other.’ See it here.

LOVE these chunky artisan bracelets! Each features 6 different signature images, adding just the right amount of artful soul to you accessory collection. They’re a stretchy 8″ long and slip on easily for maximum style and comfort. Shine is right over here.  See the full line of Chunky Artwork Bracelets right here.

The LED candle collection is so lovely! Shine is among my favorites! I love the idea of a candle that will burn brightly and never fade! They are 100% safe for little hands and wagging tails, but still have the look (and feel) of an actual candle that flickers. Tip: I place mine up high (like on a mantel) where they flicker but yet their LEDness is concealed by being placed up high. See the Shine LED right here.

Thanks, friends. Our mission is to continue to create products that blend creativity with meaning, beauty with function. I so love what I do.
