Citrine Nest!


It's been so long since I've made a nest ring- but once I start one, it always takes on a life of it's own!  This newest delight has a tiny little citrine cab- the whole ring sort of reminds me of a Kandinsky. Right? Maybe? Sort of?

 Kandinsky- "Around The Circle" 1940

get it??

Can you tell what this is? (keep in mind it's not polished) (keep in mind i need a manicure) 

Delicious Disaster

This weekend Ben is in NY, so I am left to my own devices. I don't really like to cook when it's just me who will be eating, and I bought a box of Andes Mints on sale at Target, so yada yada yada, dinner!

I've also been watching Bee Movie tonight...I think it might secretly be one of my new favorite movies. Maybe not so secret anymore?

AND I made a bazillion crazy things, destroyed my thumbs, but have a lot of good stuff to photograph and list tomorrow morning. A poorly photographed sneak peek!

A busy day at the workbench.

I was hammering and soldering and polishing non stop today! My poor little fingers and finger nails.

 I love the colors and the mess of this picture! Well, maybe not so much the mess.

 Three heart link necklaces for a wholesale order!

Pretty new Amazonite ring.


New peach drusy ring. So hard to photograph drusy well!



Holiday Party Dress?

For the first time in my LIFE I have actual fancy holiday parties to go to!!!! 


I think I'll pick up this little number from Forever 21 this weekend.

Sunday Sale!

Guess what? Etsy has coupon codes now! To celebrate (and test it out), you will get 15% your order today only until midnight if you enter the code BLINGYSUNDAY. So get some shopping done now, and spread the word!

Ketchup high-five!

Sunday Sunday Sunday

 This has been one of the best Sunday's in a long time. After a leisurely breakfast out with friends, Ben and I picked up the Sunday Times, brought it back to the apartment, and read the whole thing (well, a lot of it). I made us tall glasses of cucumber water (one of which was promptly toppled, causing a bit of an ocean on our rug). And now we're listening to records! What a day indeed.

What are you up to today?

Photos from the day

Sadie visited, and we bought tights, drank lots of peppermint mochas, and watch tv. Some photographic evidence:

All in all a lovely, windy, sunny Friday in DC!

wedding dress?

Did I just find my wedding dress?? I think so!

Oh Hi.

I just got a major wholesale order from Proper Topper in DC. Time to make make make!

Oh, and holiday shopping started?

Yes ma'am!

This little rachel is gonna be one busy honeybee.

Not that I'm complaining.

I wish I had more exciting things to talk about.

Maybe you do? 


I might have posted about these before, but there's some newfangled nail technology called Minx, Gels, or Foils (I'm still unclear about it all). Alls I knows is that I need it on my nails. Immediately. Please.

Finally, I'm back home on my bright red couch, chock full of ideas. I can't wait to get started tomorrow! 

Also, I think these boots from Aldo are calling to me!! (update- i just ordered them.)
Also, I just listed this fancy ring. Gold! Chrysoprase! Diamond! Silver! What more could a gal want?

Also, time to watch tv.
