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.

Gray - A Refreshed Look #03

It's not always black and white. Sometimes, it just gray and it can be beautiful.
I chose gray for an Etsy treasury on June 1, 2011 because I believe its such a lovely color.
Or is it a "non-color"? Here is the original treasury - missing a few as happens over time.

And here is the newest treasury, inspired by this one and the color gray. Enjoy!
