New Items for the Etsy Shop..... My new jewelry collection

I've been busy this summer developing some new hand-made custom designed jewelry items for my Etsy shop and finally I have a nice starter collection completed!  Burning the midnight oil has produced some lovely results that I'm really happy with and cant wait to share.  I'm writing up descriptions and editing photos to get them listed shortly.  Its a lengthy but fun process.
Hope you'll visit my shop on Etsy to see more of the collection and buy one for yourself!

Purses, Totes, Bags....oh my!

I love purses!
We all carry them...some we schlog around on our shoulders so heavy laden with all our daily necessities they can start to look so uninspired.  The bag you choose says alot about your personal style so have some fun selecting probly what is every womans most essential everyday item.

Design Inspiration....Kitchens

The Gathering Room of most homes is the Kitchen.... so I think its really important to pour a healthy dose of time and consideration into the planning and design of this space.
Here are some fabulous inspirational spaces and the phenomenal designers behind the designs.

Mona Hajj Interiors, Baltimore
Love this simple clean countertop and how it goes up behind the sink ....so clean and fresh!

Chris Barrett Interior Design
I've really grown to appreciate having a space to relax by the kitchen ...I think its a great idea to have a  room to the side where you and your guests/family can chat it up while the food is being prepared.

These vintage style silver barstools are fab! And that artisinal rug is swoon worthy! 
There's lots to love about this room....the space flows with arched doors on each side.
The large stainless hood gives a great pop of glamtasticness with glitzy chandeliers.

Arzo Studio Hope

Adoring these charcoal cabinets with stainless and white. 
Briggs Edward Solomon, Miami

 I can picture wonderful culinary creations being prepared here.
Love the modern clean lines..its all about function.

Bruce Bierman, NY

Marble BackSplash + Stainless Hood + OldWorld + Plus Stainless Barstools and Pendants = J'Adore 
Love everything about this spacious delight.... two islands to boot! Wow
Gianetti Home, LA

Loving some MidCentury Modern here... I really like those dining chairs...so practical!

Laura Bohn Design Associates

Swoon!..... thats all just...Swoooon.
Shope Reno Wharton

The backsplash and vintage take on the countertops, cabinets and pendants are all fab.
I think what I love most about this space is all the light pouring in and how open it is to outside.

Happy Wednesday!
