I made a couple of these vintage button necklaces awhile back and am just getting around to photographing them…the warm summery gold and cream of this one is my favorite so far.

It’s been awhile since I’ve made a nest but I recently sold my favorite nest necklace and it seemed like time to make another.
I scored some antique chandelier crystals at an estate sale recently. They will be added to pretty, sparkly accessories soon!
And here are some of the necklaces I’ve made but haven’t had the time to list yet. One of these days…
I’m a renter and always have a hard time getting inspired to put a lot of work into doing decorating — even though everywhere I’ve lived, it always feels kind of fleeting because there isn’t the kind of commitment that you have with owning — we can pack up and move with just 30 days notice and then you have to start over.
Which is silly because everywhere I’ve lived, I’ve stayed for ages. And so what anyway! Half the reward is making something sweet and admiring it, who cares if it might end up being something left behind or changed. Life is too short! So I’ve been trying to keep an eye out for bits and pieces that I like to give me a little kickstart and am going to start sharing them.

What are some of your home inspirations?
Today’s was the home of a recently deceased anal retentive doll hoarder. She had the most magnificently organized collection of — anything you can imagine that might be even remotely related to doll crafting. Jessica scored a really awesome vintage wood storage thingy with drawers and untold spools of thread in every color of the rainbow. I am so jealous. But I am quite pleased with my Button Bucket.
