lacy leaf earrings and flora necklace by white owl
what could be a better way to start the weekend than a giveaway? my lovely friend melissa over at melissa loves is helping me do a giveaway - your choice of these earrings or this necklace... hooray! just pop over to her blog and describe your perfect summer day (my perfect summer day starts with a giveaway!)
so very recently, i noticed my creations taking a turn for the girly. could this be the effects of summer? the influence of lovely gardens and farmers markets and the cute baby bunnies running through my backyard? suddenly, i feel like tea parties and sundresses and a pretty necklace are just what i need.
o.k., so i know that this is silly, but i really want this dish from urban outfitters... the reason this is silly is because i have about a million little dishes to hold stuff and i have more than a few bird-themed items ... (o.k., a lot more than a few)
don't you just love it when you find something amazing and lovely from a bygone era? what could be cooler than a tiny brass abacus, (say it ten times really fast) that really works, (if you know how to count with an abacus that is). this one was combined with vintage brass chains... super cool.
i've been experimenting with dyeing lace and coming up with some lovely results... i love the subtlety of greys and beige and pale petal soft colors and i've decided to add earrings to my etsy shop. i'm not sure whether more people are "earring people" or "necklace people", but i got crazy and made a lot of earrings in the last week. let's see how folks react to these pretties...
