Hello, everyone! I'm happy to be back after a fun and refreshing Thanksgiving holiday. It's tradition in my family to hit the shops on black Friday, so I've done some holiday shopping already, but I've still got my eye out for beautiful things, and I'm pleased to share these with you today.
Given the 6 or so inches of snow I woke up to this morning, bicycle riding is out of the question for me right now. I'm guessing many of you have hung up your two-wheelers until the thaw next spring as well. So, while you're not riding a bike, consider wearing one--especially this adorable Take a Ride bicycle resin cameo by crafty folk. This brooch, while perfectly appropriate for any season, conjures up summer pastimes like picnics, reading under a shade tree, and, of course, bicycling. Lemonade, anyone?
I'm loving these simple and elegant organic earrings by fleur fatale. The muted colors and the size of these hoops make them extremely versatile and a fitting complement to anything from an ivory chunky wool sweater and jeans to a burgundy silk blouse and pencil skirt. (Can you tell I'm sort of in the daydreaming spirit today?)
I'm definitely feeling the extra calories I consumed over the last few days. I just can't seem to control myself over the holidays. But this peppermint print by the Photo Zoo gives me an idea. Not only is it beautiful, it's calorie-free. So, maybe the trick is to surround myself with photographs of delectable goodies rather than the "real" thing. What do you think? I just hope this wouldn't increase my cravings. At any rate, this print is spectacular and would make for a beautiful winter-themed wall.
When I was single, I sort of cringed at the holiday mistletoe references. Now that I've got my wonderful hubby, I don't mind it at all--in fact, I hang it all around the house! I'm also a huge fan of letterpress stationary, so I think this meet me under the mistletoe letterpress card by the paper peony will make the perfect Christmas card for my beloved this year.
It could be all those aforementioned extra calories or maybe it's a new phase I am going through, but I am drawn to full blouses, tunics, and sweaters right now. And this Josephine blouse by anna fabo is fabulous! The smocking around the color adds the perfect detail and color contrast (by the way, you can order this in many other colors if grey isn't your thing). I could see myself living in this work of art!
It's cyber Monday, everyone! What are you clicking on?
