Just when I thought Spring was almost here, Vancouver got blasted with snow for 3 days. My winter blahs set in again, (made worse by unemployment), I was in need of a pick-me-up. So I did some online window shopping. Here’s a few colours, textures and objects that caught my eye. Enjoy!
There’s been a recent comeback of embroidery and i’m loving it! I’ve been working on an embroidery project myself, it’s small, but it’s actually been taking a while because I just don’t have the patience like I used to (at the age of 12) for tying hundreds of knots! I was influenced by the hair wraps we used to do when I was in grade school and I figured it was the perfect way to disguise my old dirty white iPod headphones. Check out some of my fun finds below and some photos of my little headphone project.

This season i’m really into jewel tones, but then again, i’ve always been a lover of purple…and teal and… alright so it’s hard to pick just one colour, but i’ve picked out a few items that caught my eye this fall. I always think that accessories really change an outfit. You could wear black everyday (like I usually do), but add a cute scarf, some awesome boots and some bold jewelry it changes everything.
I’ve been loving that amethyst is really in style lately, it’s literally everywhere from handmade to mass made (h&m, aldo) it’s a must have right now. I specifically love it, because its my birthstone and one of my favorite colours. So keep the chunky crystal gemstones coming, I hope they never go out of style.

Window display in Vancouver. Lamps for hats? This just makes me giggle and think of a post I did about another window display last year
I’ve been loving novelty vintage inspired items lately. It’s purely the cute factor and a little bit of nostalgia that makes me happy. I purchased a miniature fortune cookie necklace by BIKO at the Vancouver One of a Kind show this weekend, and i’m in love with it! Here’s a collection of the other miniature necklaces i’ve come across recently, most can be found on ETSY.
I love visiting the thrift store, I never have any specific item in mind that i’m hunting for, mostly just something with character, possible value and function in my home. I’m in love with vintage items, so usually it’s what I gravitate towards. This latest item was a deal, which made me think that spending a few extra bucks to fix it up a bit wouldn’t be a big deal. It ended up being a great improvement.
