things have been crazy around here lately. summer brought on a ton of new projects + fun work but it also brought a car accident (everyone is okay!) + left me missing my sweet ride! hopefully i’m turning the corner on all the crazy things + can take a little summer siesta next week.
speaking of summer — i’m clearing out my etsy shop + am having a summer sale! just use promo code “15percentoff” to grab some of my favorite flea market finds like these chrome horses!

i admit there’s a lot of regretsy @ etsy + i don’t purchase as much as i used to on the site. times really have changed when i think of etsy but there are still some hidden gems there. it’s really amazing to me just how many talented + creative people there are all over the world + some of them still sell on etsy! it can be daunting if you are looking for something specific (wedding items anyone?) because there’s a lot of pure junk to wade through (not to mention not really vintage nor handmade). when i’m just looking at my feed or looking at the items people in my circle have liked i’ll still sometimes find the coolest things that are quite inspiring. i’m also a sucker for a wad of color…

i discovered raquel castillo’s shop on etsy back when i got engaged + was on the hunt for vintage jewels. i was floored by how gorgeous her necklace’s are. they look like bundles of happiness! not to mention the fact that she is reworking vintage pieces which makes them even more special!
i wanted one of these little puppies to wear during the wedding but wasn’t able to score one. honestly, a wedding is a good excuse to buy something a bit pricey that you wouldn’t normally let yourself purchase + a necklace by raquel sort of fits that bill for me. three years later i realize it wouldn’t have worked with my dress BUT i’d still love to have one of these cause they’ll work with a million other things!

i can’t seem to get enough of pagodas these days. the powerful structures have gorgeous tiers that look like wings to me – like they are about to take flight. according to wiki, pagodas attract lightning due to their (usually) decorative finial! this attraction has added to the feeling of them being spiritual buildings. pagodas have a magical presence + seem to emit positive energy to me. since they are essentially houses of worship i’m sure that’s what i tend to pick up.
little mini brass tchotchkes to gorgeous cotton prints. i want to grab it all up for future clients, or myself!
