Fiona Paxton and other weekend activities

I've been loving these necklaces by Fiona Paxton.

So this weekend I attempted a version of my own. It didn't turn out very similar but I like it.

This one's for me but feel free to contact me if you're interested in one.

Another necklace I made this weekend...I love the color combinations but I do not love the quality of the chain. So I'll keep it for myself but can recreate it with better quality materials if you so wish!

Going to see Phoenix tomorrow night with the gals from work. So pumped! I am obsessed with this band lately. Can't wait to see them live.

Plus they're playing at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago which is awesome and huge. It's going to be a fun night.

Note to self: I must not drink too much. Do not handle hangovers at work well.

Sorry to get all wedding-y...

It may this way for a while though...I'm engaged, what can I say. I look at wedding blogs and think about all the crazy (expensive) shit I should have at my wedding. Today I want peacocks.

In other news...Eric was laid off last week. So maybe I should give the wedding blog cruising a rest for a bit.

I bought a little bracelet from the cute Argentine sisters of Debaires on Saturday. I don't have a picture of my bracelet but here are some of the other gorgeous pieces they make.

some pics

Just thought I would share some pictures from our vacation earlier this summer. Although I'm totally sad that summer is on it's way out, I'm feeling the back to school spirit right now. Starting fresh and all that...I'm trying at least!

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore - totally gorgeous.

There are some new items up in the shop - please stop by and take a look.

Almondine Necklace - long

Belladonna Necklace

Everyone have a fantastic weekend!

things are looking up

It's saturday morning, I'm going to Renegade Handmade Chicago later and the sun is shining. The best part - I'm not at work. My day job that is, rose lake is work that I like!

Just found this blog and so it.

Renegade Handmade Chicago

I'm going to the Renegade Handmade show in Chicago this weekend with a few girlfriends and am very excited. I almost did a booth there myself this year but wimped out. Looking forward to scoping it out for next year. If you're in Chicago - come! Visit the site for more info.
