We've long loved the clothing brand Mi Golondrina and you will find it as no surprise that the Well + Wonder team has a handful of their tops and dresses hanging in our closets. It was only after we had already owned a few Mi Golondrina pieces that we learned the background of this wonderful brand. Inspired by her mother’s Mexican heritage and love of Mexican art, Cristina Lynch wanted to continue telling the story of Mexican art by preserving the traditions of hand-embroidery and empowering artisans throughout Mexico.
Phew, 2020. I'm not sure I have the right words for you yet, but I do know that summer 2020 has been a much-needed respite. It began with a much-needed break from homeschooling, which led to canceled alarm clocks in the morning and staying up later in the evenings. "Friday Family movie nights" and "Margarita Mondays" happen nearly every night of the week and that's ok. It's been a period of reminding yourself to take it day by day and to be easy on yourself. So in this spirit of laid back summer pandemic days, we thought we'd recap a bit more about what we have been up to lately!
New week, new artwork, and most exciting of all... new ARTIST! Welcome, Annie King to Well + Wonder! To say we are thrilled to be showcasing Annie’s art in our collection is an understatement. Annie, who is an Atlanta artist born and bred, has worked professionally as an art educator as well as art therapist, but she says has always remained rooted in her own growth as an artist. Inspired by the intrinsic value that creating art promotes a sense of healing, Annie’s paintings play a significant role in her journey of seeking, surrendering, and trusting God.
