Tweet I’m far from being the first person to find symbolism in the waves and the ocean. And I certainly won’t be the last. But I hope you’ll humor me a bit with these few pearls of wisdom given to me by loved ones while […]

Like a Kid in a Candy Store

Like a Kid in a Candy Store

That’s how I felt when I walked around Savannah {this girl would know}. Every shop was like a candy store for my eyes. I tried to ingest them all in and got a visual eye ache after and a heartache from wanting to take everything home with me. Even now as I look through these pictures, I feel a sense of longing. I miss you Savannah, even though you kicked my butt with your heat and intermittent storms. I still love you.

Here’s a store I could live in:

Seashells galore and all things ocean. I live in Hawaii now, but these sea-inspired goodies were more gorgeous than anything I’ve seen on the beach. Seriously. But they cost an arm and a leg to bring them home.

Although I couldn’t stomach buying anything, I did try to capture every moment like this one. See us in the reflection?

 

SO pretty! Don’t you love that red coral, the mini telescope, the hourglass?

Lots of antique goodies worthy of staring at all day.

Ending with these adorable vintage glasses. But I have more photos to share with you later. Hope y’all (as they’d say in Georgia) have a great weekend!

I Don’t Know What I Want to Be When I Grow Up

I Don’t Know What I Want to Be When I Grow Up

Tweet If you found yourself revisiting this question as a grown up, you know how frustrating the process of self-discovery can be. Perhaps, you took the first job you got after college or you simply fell into the career you have now. But it doesn’t […]

This is Dedicated to Those Grieving the Loss of One Earring

This is Dedicated to Those Grieving the Loss of One Earring

{For anyone sad about their lonely leftover earring, you’ll appreciate this post.}

I had a pair of golden earrings that I loved. So much. And then one day, I noticed there was just one.

Sadly, I still don’t know what happened to that other earring. But I kept it just in case it would appear.

Months later it still hasn’t shown up. So I finally accepted it would never return and decided to do something about it.

I looked at the back of the earring and noticed it was loosely hooked on so I used my fingernail to open the jump ring (that circular ring that has a tiny opening) and released the earwire (the curvy wire that goes into your ear).

Voila! The earring was just a pendant now.

Then, I looked in my jewelry box for an gold chain. When I found one, I tried to thread it through the earring hook in the back. No dice!

That’s when I had to get ghetto and use my teeth. (You could use pliers, but I was too lazy to find one.) Thank goodness the gold was soft and the necklace’s jump ring easily smashed down into an oval shape. The perfect shape to fit through the earring/pendant.

It was a five minute job and here is the result:

Here’s another shot set against those DIY clipboards I made awhile back.

And butterfly art.

Gold necklace

I’m pretty happy with the result. Do you have any easy project you have done lately that you’re proud of? Share it please.

Acceptance Can Be a Female Dog

Acceptance Can Be a Female Dog

Tweet I think one of the greatest obstacles we grapple with is learning how to accept what is instead of moaning and groaning about what we don’t have. It’s like we’re sitting there one hand full of riches and the other hand open full of […]
