pow. bang. splat. yes, i did gasp when i saw these rings, and then the words that came to mind right after were all from the old batman series fight scenes.

taj taj jewelry found on something old, somethings new

more dresses more dresses and more dresses at built by wendy

found via the always lovely elegant musings

in the mood for love

valentines day is coming up and while i understand the cheesy/commercial downside of the holiday, i also think its a nice time to appreciate the people that you love. i'll be posting a few love-themed photos over the next few days... enjoy.

dear seed clothing,

i think i want to get married in your doris dress. simply beautiful.


p.s. i also love your other ones, just saying.


i was going to post some amazing dresses, but they will just have to wait. i came across zerkahloostrah's shop and my heart skipped a beat! one word, ok fine, two words: custom shoes! shoes made especially for your feet.. how many times have you bought shoes and they pinch and are tight in the wrong places? i love the colors in the sandals pictured above, they remind me of easter and my favorite easter candies... cadbury's chocolate eggs! they're definitely out of my price range, so i'll just have to settle for the candies, which is just fine with me.

copper loves

an etsy first for me! this necklace sold just hours after it was listed... made for a nice bit of sweetness to go with my coffee this morning. i'm really enjoying working with metals with antiqued finishes and also loving figaro chains more and more.
