Friday Links

Friday LinksHappy Friday y’all! I don’t know about you but with daylight savings, this week has felt a million years along. After our studio sale this weekend (OMG please come and tell all your friends!), I am going to take some time and catch up on sleep! I hope you’re able to rest up and relax over the next few days, or at the very lease, get to karaoke and have the best time ever. Regardless of how you plan to spend your time, here are some links you won’t want to miss!

More pom poms is always the answer.

– This DIY fringe chandelier has had me drooling for days!

– Welcome spring with a new floral mousepad!

– Slowly but surely I’m coming around to the terrazzo trend.

– A much needed refresh for all those fun embroidery stitches.

– Did you know you can make your own canvas prints?! How cool!


Colorful Statement Earrings

Colorful Statement Earrings for SpringBecause of the Nor’easter we had last week, and the fact that we gained an extra hour of daylight, all I can think about is spring.  The sunshine, fresh flowers, and of course, new colorful clothes and accessories! What I wouldn’t give to put my garbage bag of a winter coat away for good. The weather might not be warm enough for that just yet, so I decided to start small and focus on colorful statement earrings. Because even if there’s another snow storm tomorrow, your ears will already be in spring. Here are some of my favorites:

1. Beaded Drop Hoops

2. Metallic Foil Earrings

3. Vibrant Life Linear Earrings

4. Pink and Gold Horseshoe**

5. The Bead Goes On

6. Lucite Earrings

7. Lemon Drop Earrings

8. Pink Pom Poms

**Huge congrats to my dear friend Sarah Hearts on launching her first earring line this week! Everything is so cute and under $20!
