Something that makes this pendant really special?  It’s made from ethically sourced materials~

Favorite Things of Winter

This winter’s been a season of storms here in Chicagoland.  Thank goodness it’ll be over soon.  Right?! Soon???

So my favorite things of winter?  Lots of warm~

1. Land’s End Coat:  Let’s face it, you need a puffer coat up here, frostbite is not a good look for anyone.  But it’s nice to have on that’s not the ubiquitous black that I see on everyone else~

2. Born Boots: These I got years ago, they’re lined in flannel and so warm!

3. Gold Owl Earrings: I inherited these from my grandmother.  Adorable gold owl studs~

4. My crockpot and this recipe~

5. Cozy foxy flannel pajamas.  (No idea where these came from, they were a gift.) Toasty warm!

February Inspiration

Maybe it’s because of the long, grim winter but I am really craving color right now.  My landscape right now is just grey, grey, and more grey.  Dreary.

So February’s inspiration is all about tones, hues, and highlights!  Enjoy~

Oh WOW.  I need these all.  BECAUSE. REASONS!

These are so beautiful I am literally struggling to find words to convey how wonderful they are!  Have a closer look at the jewels in the rings. (they have tiny tiny cities inside them~)

‘Tis the season!  I’ve got most of my holiday shopping done, so I’m passing along the inspiration in case anybody else needs some.  Here are some great presents for anyone in your life.

These slippers are incredibly comfy!  I’ve got a pair myself and I love them~

These geode earrings are unique and gorgeous!

These winter hats say women, but I think they’d be great for anyone, and so warm! (I live in Chicagoland, so that’s key)

Or how about this cool wallet?  Very organized, and I guarantee they won’t have one like it~

Of course, there’s nothing like a home-made gift.  I’m giving a couple of fleece scarves out this year (shhhhh, don’t tell!) That post to come!

Three Bridesmaids Bracelets

Remember the bridal necklace I made for my friend H?  Here’s the latest update on her bridesmaids jewelry: I finished three bracelets, all white moonstone and silver spacers, with colored pearl or citrine accents.

H’s wedding colors are blue and yellow, and her flowers are going to have a mix of different hues.  So for the jewelry, each piece is unique and the jewels range in tone from pale yellow to sunny yellow to peach yellow.  There will be five necklace/bracelet sets in all, for five wonderful bridesmaids~  (What a thoughtful gift, H!)

So I’m finally getting around to posting all my uploaded earrings photos, like I’ve been meaning to do.  My friend K asked to see some pics of a pair of blue pearls, and I promised I’d send her the link, so here is all the jewelry I’ve been meaning to get around to showing off~

I’m always looking for jewelry inspiration, so here’s something from an independent artist that really struck my fancy~

I really love the artist’s use of nature forms, rich colors and unexpected details.  Just gorgeous!
