Orange You Glad I Said Orange - A Refreshed Look #05

Orange has fast become one of my favorite colors. It started several years ago.
That's why I created this treasury in 2011, which shows only half of what I actually chose for it.

And orange is still one of my top color choices. Here is another collection of delightfulness.

For the next three months, Animal Legal Defense Fund is Pin & Tack's dedicated charity.
They work to create change for animals through legal means.

Travel The Pacific Northwest - A Refreshed Look #04

On July 5, 2011, I invited Etsyians to travel to the Pacific Northwest.
The journey involved artists and crafters in this fabulous region.

Sadly, the original treasury has since lost a lot of items.

But, luckily, there are still many people living in the area with handmade creations.

And this time, YOU are invited to join me. Stop by the shops, favorite & buy.
Especially if they are local to you. If not, search for people near you :)

Please & Thank You, Retro Revival Boutique

Let's get this out there before anything else.
First, this is not an ad. I didn't receive any money or free product.
As a supporter of handmade, I can't help but share my finds with others.

I paid for these two sets of earrings. And I'm very pleased with them!

~ Thank you, Retro Revival Boutique ~
(I will call them RRB in this post for short, by the way.)

Welcome to Night Vale Inspired Earrings
RRB was inspired by a podcast called Welcome to Night Vale.
I've never watched it, but I was captured by the weird yet pretty look of these.
They are just as wonderful in person - Excited to wear them out!

Button Beaded Earrings
Funky, vintage style. Love it!
Both sets were well-made and they shipped very fast.
I'm already looking over RRB again for more :)

Clockwise, left to right: 1. Summertime Beaded Bib Necklace; 2. Exotic Bird Necklace; 3. Mod Golden Triangle Dangle Earrings; 4. Vintage Buttons Crocheted Bib Necklace 5. Purple Filigree & Red Crystal Chandelier Earrings
When you are in search of jewelry, I recommend Retro Revival Boutique.
I enjoyed my experience and I'm sure you will, too!

Why Is Natural Light Best?

Why is natural light best? This is why.

Mini Distressed Clothespins

Uuuhhh . . huh. Okay.

The colors are so sunny & bright.

Can you tell what's going on here?

But you'd have to take my word for it.

Yep. That's what I thought. Use natural light.
It helps with the pictures. That is all.
