Dude, I just ate waaaaayyy too much. You'd think I would have stopped eating when it was just me at the table with foot left, my parents just sitting there watching me. But no! I continued on, because that's what Americans do. We persevere. We eat much, much more stuffing than is appropriate. And then we moan.

But now that the meal is finished, it's time for me to give thanks in a much more appropriate manner. With free worldwide standard shipping in my shop! Yay! From now until 12am EST Tuesday (Dec 2), every single order will ship for free, anywhere in the world. Combine that with the big sale I currently have going on, and seriously, you can't miss it.

Marichelle of Heart Handmade has put together the prettiest zine celebrating the holiday season. It's out today, you can download it here or read it online here. There are sweet mini-interviews with tons of great artists and makers, and downloadable treats -- gift tags, prints, great stuff. See if you can spot me in the pages :) I also contributed recipes for Dark Chocolate Truffles and Coconut Macaroons--you'll die, they're so yummy.

Pre-Holiday SALE!

Okay, I'm facing facts. My shop is jam-packed with jewelry and I literally have a huge stock of great holiday pieces that are just waiting to be posted--but I've got to get some older items cleared out before my store bursts at the seams.

So you know what that means! Big pre-holiday sale. Most items are reduced by 20 - 30%, some up to 40%--and the sale includes some long-time favorites (Archeologist Earrings, anyone? :)

So come on in an get 'em before they're gone.

getting me through the day

"Young Bride" by Midlake. It's been getting me through the last few gloomy and rainy days. I always forget how terrible the weather is in November. It seems perpetually overcast and windy. What gets you through the dark days of late fall?

Just arrived... purchases from Wren & Chickadee. Unbelievably, they're even prettier in person. I love Ez's soft, ethereal aesthetic, and the vignette that her daughter, Miss K, put together is so quirky and chic. Now I just have to find the perfect spot for them...
