a glimpse this morning, along with a few reminders..

Reminder #1

Well, it's the last day of November (whizzing by...seriously!) and that means it's the last day of our Holiday Sale.
So, head on over if you haven't picked up your gifts yet ;)

Reminder #2

Send me your pictures!! Please :)
Refer to this post if you missed still have time to send them in.
You can send them to us by this Sunday, December 4th.

Thank you, to all of you who've already sent pictures to us. I love it.


And here's a quick glimpse:


We've been here a lot lately. A lot.
Drinking a big hot mug of something and working.

And we're grateful.
Super duper grateful.

See you soon.

Black Friday

Good Morning!
How many of you have been out and about already hitting up those Black Friday sales??

Well, we are adding to it :)

In addition to our Holiday 15% off sale in both our shops, if you order $75-$250 in jewelry, you will receive a pair of our Swirls and Flourish Earrings for free with your order.

For every order over $250 we will include our classic Sterling and Gold Nest necklace.

Our Etsy and Web shops will run this specific promotion from 11/25 until 11/28 on Cyber Monday and it will be limited one per customer.


My brother and his family came up for Thanksgiving and we, like so many others, gorged out on delicious food. My Dad manned the turkey, stuffing and yams (I was the co-pilot!) and my mom was all over the pumpkin pies. I think there were 6! We'll be having a Thanksgiving meal again today (!) and then they head out tonight ending a whirlwind visit.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
We'll be putting up Christmas decorations.....the boys have been asking about a Christmas tree for a few weeks now. Time to move on to the next holiday :)

Saint Nick.....and some business

The holidays have fully descended:

Over the weekend we hit a happy hour at one of our favorite spots on Pearl Street and then headed over to City Hall to watch the Christmas lights go up, along with some holiday ice skating and music....

We stopped in for some nighttime chai and then headed over to meet the big guy himself.

My older monkey LOVED meeting him. The little one.......not so much. He told me that he's scared of Santa, but that he still wants him to bring him toys for Christmas :)

another lust-worthy bike

I love, love this time of year and I feel like it is already speeding by.
Which reminds me....

Here is our Holiday Shipping Schedule:

For U.S. Christmas delivery - orders should be placed by Thursday, December 15th.

For International Christmas delivery - orders should be placed by Wednesday, November 30th.

It is super important to note that these dates are only a guideline since USPS First Class mail is not guaranteed. As always, we will also be offering faster shipping options for an additional charge (USPS Priority and Overnight), if you're worried that your package will not arrive on time. Just choose your desired shipping option when shopping in our website shop and when shopping on Etsy, leave your desired shipping option in the order notes and I'll follow up with an additional PayPal invoice for the shipping charge.

Okay, I'm off to work....we are already in the throes of holiday orders! Norbert just started blasting this music so it's time to mosy on downstairs :)

Annual 'Call for Pictures'

A year ago, we asked our wonderful customers to send in pictures wearing our jewelry and in turn we randomly chose several from that group to receive $50 gift certificates to our website shop. You can find last year's winners here.
It was such a treat to see my pieces worn that we decided to make this 'call for pictures' giveaway an annual affair.

So here are the details:
- You can send me the pictures at or post them on our facebook page.
- The pictures can roll in up until November 30th
- In the beginning of December we will announce the winners here, our newsletter and also our facebook page.
- You can crop part of your face if that makes you feel comfortable!
- It's important to note that your picture may get published here and in our newsletter so PLEASE make sure that this is okay!
- The more pictures the merrier....send me as many as you want! We'd love to see them all.

So PLEASE send me your pictures!
Okay? :)

p.s. The above picture is one of the first pieces of jewelry I sold in my Etsy shop, two and a half years ago.
Crazy, because it seems soooo long ago.....

I'm back....and it's practically the middle of November!
Time is flying people and it's going to be like that for us until post-holidays!

So here's the dealio:
I have a list of things to mention starting with our SALE that we are currently having at our Etsy and Web shops. Everything is currently 15% off so head on over and grab some Christmas gifts :)

Secondly, I added more amethyst stones to the 'amethyst burst' listings in both shops.

Stones to choose from on Etsy:

And on our Web shop:

Next up, I made and listed a reissue of the 'floral' earrings.
These ones are a little smaller than the original and I like them better that way!
Change is nice...

You can find them here and here.

We sent out our newsletter last week full of upcoming information and notifiying everyone of our sale.
I'll be back this weekend to share some of that extra info here....


I'm sitting at my computer writing this post and this song just come on:

It is overcast here and strangely very still and quiet.
This song suits me perfectly at this exact moment.

Happy Friday :)
