Let's start the weekend off with a little inspiration and a lot of charm!
I can't tell you how many times I've tried to write messages in spiral or circular form. Somehow, it never looks quite right. But in her Elaborate ring, Anne Kiel (of Anne Kiel Jewelry) got it just so. What a lovely Valentine's present this would be! And just so you don't have to stand on your head to read the inscription, here it is: "Go Ahead and Elaborate on Your Love for Me." Well, what are you waiting for?
I'm obsessed with tunics right now and cannot get yellow out of my brain since I saw Slumdog Millionaire last week. This knee-length linen dress in mustard by Pamela Tang would satisfy both predilections. It also makes me anxious for warmer temperatures to come!
As someone who works with polymer clay on a regular basis, I'm always on the lookout for artists that use the medium in different ways. This week, I found a shop on 1000Markets called Stonehouse Studio that is just filled with gorgeous polymer clay and silver jewelry. The Budding Branch Neckwire, above, is my favorite of the bunch.
I love to cook and I'm a huge fan of cookbooks. The more photos, the better. That said, I've never seen a more adorable recipe than this! These French Toast Recipe Nesting Dolls by Trish Grantham actually show you how to make French toast. Whether you cook or not, I think you'll agree that these are adorable. Definitely check out this shop for more precious finds--Trish is running a sale this week!
Felt Gallery by Vaiva Nat is made from hand-felted wool. Functional as it is, wouldn't it just look swell atop your dresser or vanity? Once you've got that all decorated, don't forget a little something for yourself. Maybe one of these!
It's been a hectic week and promises to be an even busier weekend. This soy pinecone candle Berd & Bee makes for a handsome reminder to take a few minutes to relax and wind down. I'm breathing deeper just looking at it!
On that note, here's wishing each of you a peaceful, happy weekend!
