New Moon in Aquarius

Tonight is the New Moon and this month it enters Aquarius! (which is both my sun sign and rising sign❤) In any month the New Moon is the time for new beginnings and fresh starts, and this year it is particularly powerful since the New Moon falls on a Monday, the sacred day of the Moon. Aquarius is the sign of mystery, intrigues, magic and tranquility which adds to the power and mystery of tonight's New Moon.


About Me

My photo
I grew up on the beach in Malibu, California and began traveling to Europe at a young age. Although my heart belongs to the sea and life at the beach, I loved the history and old-world feeling of Paris and London compared to my sunshine filled beach life at home. I often found myself searching through antique stores and vintage shops during my travels in Europe. Dusty leather bound books, prints, vintage handbags, and old apothecary bottles were my favorite things to collect. After attending colleges in California, Hawaii and England I graduated with a degree in illustration and I planned to become a children's book illustrator, but then I took a course on bookmaking and letterpress at Otis College of Design in Los Angeles and I began making my own books. As my handmade book collection grew I decided I really wanted to recreate more of the beautiful antique books and other things I remember finding in the little shops in Europe and that's when WANDERING MERMAID was born. I like to think of my ETSY shop as the mysterious little vintage shop you find down a hidden alleyway . You never know what you will find ❤
