london calling

London tops my list as my favorite city; regardless of the fact that I've spent less then 5 hours in it, and a majority of that was in an airport. One day I will get there. In the meantime, these could keep me company.

this sums up my week

I feel like I used to be very optimistic but I'm getting cynical in my old age (tomorrow is the big 2-4). I keep waiting for the day things get easier. I like that this poster reminds me that I'm not alone.

the work of Matthew Walkerdine found via design is mine

globe collecting

I have a little ledge above my cabinets in my kitchen that (for now) I use for storage. I've been on the look out for something cheery to brighten up my closet sized kitchen. Wouldn't vintage globes be just the item?

lace up riding boots

Riding boots are my current shoe obsession. I have fallen in love with the lace up style and decided to track down some of my favorite variations.

erie basin antique jewelry

Cameo rings run in my family and they will always hold a special place in my heart. I love the variety of styles, shapes, and colors that the rings take on. I came across a great collection of cameo rings on Erie Basin's tumblr which led me to Erie Basin's stunning shop. I wish I could visit the Brooklyn store and see all the antique pieces in person. In addition to a wide selection, his prices are ridiculously reasonable for the age and condition that all the jewelry is in.
Visit the shop for the most unique selection of antique jewelry.
