remember the silver pitcher i found at the thrift store for $3? i wanted some dried real hydrangeas for it, but i found these fake (gulp) ones at Michael's and thought they would do. plus it helped to have a nice little 40% coupon. i love, love, love that B monogram and the tarnished patina!
my lovely new old glass locket from BrianneLee (AWESOME shop!) i think this may actually be a piece of Victorian mourning jewelry. the side you see here has the original photo of a dapper looking gent, and the talented Brianne added a snippet of a Robert Browning poem to the other side. oh i love it so!
my FABULOUS clutch from Littlebyrdvintage. i carry it everywhere and always get tons and tons of compliments from strangers. it is very well made and i love that it is made from vintage materials, so it's environmentally friendly!
new boots! i don't need the jaws of life to zip these boots up (which is usually necessary for my "man-tastic" calves), so naturally i love them!
my little velvet pumpkins. they are handmade and have real pumpkin stems! sorry this picture is a bit dark, the color of the bigger pumpkin is a rich brown and the little one is a lovely grey/slate blue. they are so pretty together! a very dear friend graciously picked them out for me and sent them all the way from Portland, Oregon!
since the days are getting shorter and shorter, i decided our home needed some more warmth and sparkle. Edna graciously obliged.
and finally, my latest thrift store find: a wonder ball! i was so excited to find one that has the rubber stopper base. i think i'm going to fill it with leaves for the rest of Fall, and maybe put some pretty vintage mercury glass ornaments in it for Christmas.
what pretty things are inspiring you today?
