Etsy Favourites / Jewelry Edition

I’ve been browsing Etsy the past few days –  reorganizing my favourite items. My old page of favourites moved and is now here and I’m feverishly adding things I want to collections.  One of the things I’m drawn to right now is jewelry – I’m a sucker for great necklace and earrings, many of my new favourites below.  Rings are harder for me because I seem to have monster fingers that nothing fit on. As a side note —- I’ve been googling how to make my own rings…. the school of YouTube has been trying to teach me. I may tackle that DIY this Summer when I can be outdoors in the studio and take some time to learn a new craft. Until then, here are some of my faves!

Spring Wardrobe Refresh | No. 1

Top / Jeans / Loafers / Rainboots / Necklace Charm

I’m getting a few new pieces for my wardrobe and am trying to buy quality pieces over the fast fashion that I perhaps indulged in over the years. My friend Erin reintroduced me to JCrew and the fact that they ship to Canada and they pay the duties (um. hello. awesome!) I have purchased a few things (like that top above, and a pair of heels) and if the size is wrong or your don’t like them – you can return them to any Canadian Jcrew store.

Serena & Lily Spring Design Event

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 /
9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15

Heads up! Serena and Lily are having their Spring Design Event! Staring today, March 19, 2019 and through to March 25, 2019 you can get 20% off in stores and online with the code INSPO. We’re looking for outdoor furniture for our new back deck, so I have my eye on a number of pieces in their outdoor collection, and I’ve also always coveted the Carson side chair, and am considering them for the eat in kitchen when we revamp that in a bit.

I’m always obsessed with the lighting options at Serena & Lily and above are some of my all time faves – some for the house, some for my imaginary beach house where the rattan would fit in for a Kennebunkport vibe. If you haven’t yet, do check out their outdoor collections because I am ob-sessed.
