Madeira Beach; where the shop is located, opened a newly renovated park called Archibald Park. It has been here for a while but the city just dropped a ton of money to fix it all up, and I have to say that it looks amazing. A new snack area and gift shop. A bunch of tiki huts for eating right by the beach, plus a whole new parking area completely resurfaced. It feels a lot better than before and I think it improves the appearance of Madeira Beach quite a bit.
I had the chance to take it all in while out for my evening walk, and the added benefit of a beautiful west coast Florida sunset made the trip outside the gym all the better. I find walking perpendicular to the water gives my mental mind the ability to calm down and allows me to think a whole lot better after a day at work. I think it is the horizon which kind of puts me a trance like state. However it could be the sound of the waves, and warmth of warm Florida evening provided a very enjoyable experience. Either way it is was a great evening stroll.
Best Spot For A Walk
Every town has a place that if you want to get away from it all but still be kinda of close to town. Around the lake, by the ocean, a hiking trail, etc. Around here any of the gulf beaches are this spot. Especially toward the end of season when it gets a little quiet. There are no worries getting a parking spot or too many folks on the beach. Don’t get me wrong we love when out of town visitors are in the area, but around the middle of August all the way to Christmas week the evenings are real quiet on the beach. You basically have it all to yourself.
After my walk I didn’t spend a ton of time around the park because it was well past dusk, but I will definitely be back. If you get a chance to hit up Archibald Park for a sunset walk than I highly recommend it.
The solstice just passed and everyone here at the shop are enjoying nice Florida weather and those long summer nights.
With the spirit of summer definitely here, I’m super excited to share this one with you guys, introducing the New Pink Mother of Pearl Collection by Landing Company.
We are always looking for unique materials to bring to you, especially ones that embody the beach vibe and look beautiful when worn. Larimar, plays a big part in this mission for the last couple of years and we are always innovating with new pieces in this collection.
So, when we had the opportunity to use some of these beautiful pink mother of pearl shells we had to put together a collection of our best selling designs from the Larimar Collection cast with this new material. Honestly, I think it turned out great.
“A reminder of the island lifestyle…”
That is what really comes to mind when I look at this collection in its entirety. First, it is a brand new material for Landing Company; the natural beauty of Pink Mother of Pearl shell is contrasted by the sterling silver. Second, additional design touches enhance the entire appeal of each piece, with many featuring clear crystals; others feature nautical patterns such as the Sea Turtle, and Palm Trees.
In jewelry, you want to have complementary materials in a collection and I think with Landing Company being known for Nautical Jewelry this further cements our specialty.
The introductory collection has launched in store, and online, just in time for your summer trips to the beach.
We’d love for you to share this with your friends, and you can view the Pink Mother of Pearl Jewelry collection right here on LandingCompany.com.
Enjoy those long summer days!
I think it goes without saying that Mother’s are special in our lives. There is a special connection that is inherent from birth that we share, and on Mother’s Day we have a chance to make that day special for her. Traditional things such as flowers and going out to a nice dinner are a nice choice. But, jewelry is also at the top of the list of gifts to give for Mother’s Day. So, we wanted to showcase some of the categories of products that we think you should keep in mind as you make your final decisions.
Here are the Top 5 Jewelry Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day from Landing Company…
#1: Larimar Jewelry
Larimar is a natural blue and white gemstone that is from the Caribbean. If you are not familiar with the stone then you should check out Discover Larimar Jewelry to read all about it. The stone is stunning. In the last three months we have introduced some wonderful designs cast in genuine sterling silver. Larimar is not found at a lot of stores, and the stone itself is only mined in just 1 sq. mile, so you are getting something very unique. If she has a connection to a coastal area then this reminder of the sea is a great choice.
#2 STORY by Kranz and Ziegler
STORY is really taking off. Not only is the line of leather wrap bracelets comfortable, and fashion forward but, they just introduced the new SPRING 2014 line. The new collection has some beautiful designs, and an entirely new line of watch charms that can go on your STORY to make it a functional timepiece. STORY does decorative pieces extremely well; which makes it a timeless accessory that she can wear to accessorize any outfit. The charms come in a variety of finishes such as sterling silver, gold plating, rhodium plating, and the all new rose gold. Over on our sister site STORYBracelet.com there is a fantastic write-up of the new STORY Spring 2014 collection. You can shop online or contact us to place your order.
#3 Nautical Jewelry
This is our specialty. We are always innovating with new designs in the Seaside Collection. If you’re stuck on what to give, you can’t go wrong with a starfish. We have them in classic sterling, created opal, and clear crystals the choice is yours. Lately we have been introducing some nice sea life themed pieces such as seahorses, turtles and dolphins. The entire range is cast in sterling silver so these little pieces of luxury will be ready for when she spends time near the shore.
#4 Created Opal
This is another great gift idea for Mother’s Day. Many styles are available in white or blue created opal. Created opal is a shimmering material that has little flecks of green, whites, and blues that picks up the light as you move the piece from side to side for an exceptional look. One of the most loved pieces is the Ocean Drop Necklace in this collection. It is the right size and shape, and it brings a subtle piece of the beach without going for a more nautical motif. The entire collection is cast in sterling silver.
#5 Inis Energy of the Sea
Ireland’s best selling fragrance is so fresh and clean. It is like a day at the beach. Inis, Energy from the Sea imported from Ireland and our customers just can’t get enough of it. People love that this is a relatively new fragrance in the United States because they don’t run into themselves. You can always start with a 1 oz and try it out.
Are you in the area? Stop by the shop in John’s Pass and check it all out for yourself. There are also many items that we just received in sterling silver that are not online yet, so you can always swing by the shop in Madeira Beach or phone 727-392-1415 for more information.
That will do it for now. I hope this rundown provided some inspiration…
