More Valentines

I typed up a new card for the I Love You pendant.

I've decided that for the Cabin Fever show THIS WEEKEND, I'm going to bring my typewriter and offer personalized valentine's card for the jewelry if it's a gift. Good idea? i hope so.

New and Improved Scarab Necklace!

I jazzed up the scarab necklace with little sea glass beads that I fell in love with!


EDIT: Today I saw the sculpture at the bottom labeled an Eric Boyer in a consignment shop. I was about to go back tomorrow and buy it, when THE Eric Boyer commented on this post (see comments!) saying it wasn't his. SO. I won't be getting it. This is a real Eric Boyer:

Efficient gift giving.

Card+jewelry= easy gift!

My Bikey Valentine

I spent most of the rainy day making little valentines day cards to put some jewelry on. My favorite so far is the bike one. Coming up next...the overly crafty display they are going on!

Gloomy Day Fix

I keep expecting to see Eeyore sitting outside in my driveway looking sad.

Not really. But it's rainy and cloudy enough for that!

Anwyay, I came across this photo that I took a couple years ago of a dumpster by my dorm, and it always makes me smile.

Joan's Pen Necklace

(img via Love it a Lot)

Lately I've had such an urge to watch Mad Men, but will have to wait for the new season to start this summer. Sad.

Speaking of Mad Men, for the holidays, I bought my mum a necklace like the one Joan wears because a) she loves Joanie and b) she loves pens. And is always missing hers. How perfect? Anyway, if you feel the need to have a pen necklace too (because who wouldn't want that?) I found a knock off on Amazon from 1928 Jewelry Company.

My latest 2Modern Blog post..

I nearly popped from joy when I saw these images of an Ikea table done up in legos. A Parisian design team called Munchausen, which is made up of Simon Pillard and Philippe Rosetti, bought the kitchen island from Ikea and covered it in 20,000 Legos.

Took me a while to come up with a good Tea pun. I couldn't beat Tea-Shirts. Little tea bags by Soon Mo Kang.

Treasure Map or Galaxy?

I just finished this ring, made with a flattened silver quarter from the 50's. Does it look to you more like a galaxy or a treasure map?

Midnight Disco Square Ring

Oooh I am way into frosted finishes lately! Which is why I finished this new "Midnight Disco" druzy with a satin finish! Let's see how many times I can say finish.

Anyway, I'd love your comments! Should it have a shiny finish? It's so hard to photograph druzy so that it shows just how sparkly the stone really is.

This post was written from the powdery slopes of Okemo Mountain. Or rather, in my friend's condo while they ski and we watch "Mom at 13" on Lifetime.

Swish, Swish, Gulp

That swishing is the sound of other people skiing. That gulping is the sound of me drinking hot cocoa in the ski lodge.

Ben and I are meeting our friends at Okemo Ski Resort in VT today for the night. And while they go for the skiing, Ben and I go for the french fries and hot chocolate in the lodge.

So I'll post sometime when I'm sitting in front of a roaring fire, grateful not to be skiing.

Funny picture from here.

K-BAR (kick back and read, helllo?)

Get a load of these book cover/book mark combos! How adorable and hilarious!! Motivation to read one of those books just so I could have the cover and book mark. Also motivation to commute more on public transportation so I could show it off.

Via Cup of Jo.

Let's be professional.

And by professional, I mean let's make a collage out of some new jewelry, because it always looks so darned official.

Bee Tee Dubs, everything above is now online at the shop.

Don't worry, some non jewelry posts are coming later tonight. Sorry to bore you so!

Garnet and Green

I'm liking this three stone ring more and more.

Rachel...or Dafna?

I don't know why I haven't written about my two friends who are currently in Israel doing their thang.

Dafna and Rachel have a blog called For the Love of Hummus, where they post funny pictures of their adventures as well as all of the hummus they encounter. So read it, because it's funny!

In anticipation of Cabin Fever and Valentine's Day in general, I put Ben to work helping me stamp gift boxes to my the jewelry in.

The design possibilities are endless when you have an letter R and unicorn stamp!

Fairy Chimneys

Ok. There's a place in Turkey called Cappadocia. In this place, are rock formations called Fairy Chimneys.

And I will be going to them in June!

And I will be staying in a CAVE HOTEL.

I know it's not for a while, but I cannot get the phrase Fairy Chimney out of my mind. And had to share it with you delovelies.

Our house, is a very very very fine house.

So depending on a few things, B and I may be house sitting an empty house for however long.

It used to be owned by an elderly lady, and nothing really had been changed since the 20's. (just kidding. maybe the 50's)

We're still fixing it up, but so far here are a few details that made me happy:

I'm a fan of this fan

What an adorable fan!! Ben ben ben can we get it?

It's business, it's business time.

I have that Flight of the Concords song stuck in my head.

Those are the only words I know.

Look Book

After reading countless articles in Nylon Magazine that start with, "After finding their look book on our desk this morning, we fell in love with their jewelery!" I realized that I would have to make a look book and get it on their desk. On some morning.
So I made a look book?

You Are Delightful

It's true!!

Hearts and Unicorns!

So, I've been getting things ready for the Cabin Fever Show that's coming up in Feb, and have decided to put my little earrings on pink cards with unicorns and words typed on a typewriter.

Do we like it?
