Hafod Grange Botanical Paperweights

Posted in home, nature, products, wedding, wish list with tags , , , , on June 12, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Hafod Grange makes a gorgeous array of Botanical Paperweights.


I love both the idea and execution here. They are a glimpse of wildlife, frozen in time, and as much as I adore unencapsulated nature I find it intriguing to gaze upon the eternal “life” of that which we all know to be ephemeral.

They can custom make these spherical wonders with wedding or other special occasion flowers, if you’re the sentimental type (I am…I would very much like to get one).

Dragon and Phoenix Coffee Cups

Posted in home, products, wedding, wish list with tags , , , on May 1, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

The gorgeous intricacies of Chinese dragon and phoenix mythology have really caught my attention this past year. Dragon represents benevolent strength and vigilance, true embodiment of positive male (yang) energy. Phoenix is female (yin) energy, a symbol of grace, transformation and rebirth. Together, they dance in a powerful, harmonious intermingling of forces that epitomizes the perfect balance of male and female. Beautiful, isn’t it?

I found these lovely dragon and phoenix coffee cups while searching for a gift over the summer (they even come with matching spoons, shown inside the cups here).

Truth be told, I’d probably find some way to break or injure myself on these things if I were to use them daily at home (I’m a tad on the clumsy side). But I think they’d make an amazing addition to a wedding celebration, given their poignant symbolism. Cups for the bride and groom when it’s cake time!

Alchemical Palmistry Hands

Posted in alchemy, products, sculpture with tags , , on April 24, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I had stashed away this Alchemical palmistry hand on a private wish list for a year or two (then I received it over the holidays from a loved one with an uncanny knack for independently finding my coveted items, sans clues).

The one above is my favorite. This one is a close second:

There are also other versions of this item available.

Like this one…

And these…


Many artistic representations exist as well.



I confess, I’ve never looked into palmistry. Someone told me as a child that all the tiny X’s on my hand meant a life of extreme tragedy (which, sadly, was pretty spot on in some ways). Never really wanted to see what the rest of my palm said after hearing that lovely assessment.


Do you read palms, or have you had yours read? What’s your take on the subject?

Over at Wilson Graphics, you will find an awesome array of porthole wall decals, featuring space and sea scenery


I’d love to have one of these (probably a space image) in a quirky home library.


What other world would YOU like a porthole to show?

After being bed/housebound for the past few years due to illness, an eScape sounds divine right now! I wish it were affordable to explore the world this way (until I get back IN the world!).


Sky Factory eScape™ is a digital cinema virtual window that brings the dynamic beauty of nature – image, motion and sound – to interior environments.


A high-tech illusion, eScape features a wall-mounted commercial-grade LED LCD screen embedded in a full-size casement window. Sky Factory utilizes the most advanced RED Digital Cinema™ camera to capture hours of Sky Factory’s proprietary UltraHD nature content.

Gelaskins Surprise

Posted in art, products, technology with tags , , on March 12, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

It took a lot to make me switch my phone wallpaper to something other than my cats back home in NY (whom I miss dearly). A wonderful SWS reader, Denise, gifted me the Jennybird Alcantara Gelaskin I posted about!

Gelaskins are every bit as cool as they look on the website. I put mine on my clunky phone case instead of on the phone directly, because I am notoriously clumsy and this phone is likely to shoot out of my hands like a projectile at any moment.

Look at the subtle stickers on the top and bottom that blend with the wallpaper download (I purposely left the Talk app icon on the top…it looks like the deer is talking). Very cool.

Thank you so much, Denise!

The SheWalksSoftly Official Store

Posted in announcement, products with tags , on February 27, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve wanted to open up a blog store for ages but couldn’t physically handle a fraction of the creation work, given my medical situation.

I’m amazed by the incredible kindness of some people in light of my extreme challenges. My friend Eric took it upon himself to make the store happen for me! I sent him raw design material and concepts…he put it all together.


We made a number of designs with the kind of classy, dark vibe that feels like home to me.


Some of the options are made from actual silent film caption cards.


When I’m recovered enough from hand pain to start crafting again I’ll be creating some non-logo, exclusive designs. I can’t wait!

Click on the particular design title you like at the Store Home, and you’ll see many colors and products available.

Or browse by category:
Tote Bags

Honestly, I have a bit of an excessive modesty problem and it feels odd suggesting anyone buy things with my logo on them (I know money is tight these days!)…but they are just so darn pretty! I’d be truly honored if anyone chooses to support the site.

All proceeds go toward treatment for a really difficult medical condition.

Eric, I can’t thank you enough for your hard work, patience and skills!
