selkie. sel·kie. also sil·kie. noun.

A creature or spirit in Scottish and Irish folklore that has the form of a seal but can also assume human form. Alternative forms[edit] saelkie, selky, seilkie, sejlki, shelky, silkey, silkie, sulky

A typical folk-tale is that of a man who steals a female selkie's skin, finds her naked on the sea shore, and compels her to become his wife. But the wife will spend her time in captivity longing for the sea, her true home, and will often be seen gazing longingly at the ocean.  Once she discovers her skin, she will immediately return to the sea.

Filled with color, exuberance and power, this collection is for the Selkie women everywhere, setting themselves free.

Falling in Love

The feeling of falling in love may be the biggest thrill there is in this life, and it can surprise you as it rushes your whole body, often without warning. It seems to arrive not just alongside romance, heart quickening over a connection you cant explain, but also from profound life moments- the thrill of an idea that you just know will work, building something from nothing and feeling your mind expand with every lesson. The rush of helping someone in need, a simple favor that means everything to someone else, this love can fill you up as tight as a balloon. Late nights sharing belly laughs with a friend, realizing just how much they mean to you, whether it be long term or fleeting. Falling can often be with yourself- a moment of survival, where you choose you, even when it was easier to give up. The awe inspiring feeling of climbing up off the floor. Love is everywhere Meeting a new baby, watching the sunset, hearing a thunderstorm, seeing beautiful lanscapes and architecture, holding a cat while it purrs in your arms. Falling in love is not reserved for romance, it is less tangible than a kiss, less describable than a pretty rose covered in rain drops but as powerful and aw inspiring as the meaning of life. We all experience love, and we must remember to bottle these moments, to relish in their beauty and to soak up every day- because life is a miracle, and it’s filled with magic.
