The thing I love most about this heart shaped “skeleton key” ring is its simplicity and execution. It’s cute without being too frilly and modern while still unique. It’s made of hand-cast silver white bronze and is adjustable as you can see–adjustable size 5-8.

My hair is on the short side (meaning, I don’t have much hair to pin back), but these vanilla ice cream bobby pins are so cute that I want to stick them in my hair right now. All at once. These 4 vanilla scoops come topped with a mini red strawberry and sprinkles. The set features 2 chocolate and 2 vanilla cones. They’re also handmade in LA!

These oversized cast iron jack bookends are a great way to combine youth and style. At first I thought these were a close-up of actual jacks (which made me excited), but now that I know these are bookends I am overjoyed! Each jack weighs over 3 pounds. It measures 7.5 inches diagonally from ball to ball and 6.5 inches diagonally from tip to tip. They are hand finished in a fun and retro silver paint.

I’m starting these up again so it’s easier to keep track of my entries and in case you’ve missed something during the week! Also, the Patchwork Show in Santa Ana is right around the corner, so expect lots of pictures from me and other great finds!
If you’re interested, check out my progress for my Project 365 where I’m spending the next year doing 365 things I’ve always wanted to do (but never got around to). If you have any suggestions of what should be added to my growing list, please let me know!
Next week I have something really awesome to show from a company called the New England Trading Company.

This would be a really cute wedding gift or even just a random gift for your favorite dress shirt wearer. These are “Wood You Love Me” custom cufflinks made of 3/4″ (2 cm) diameter silver-toned cufflinks created in brown polymer clay with cream acrylic paint. The faux bois/heart design is created with a hand carved stamp. They are distressed and sealed with a clear gloss sealer. Better than carving into an actual tree, declare your love with these cute cufflinks.
