Spring has Sprung April 13 2014, 0 Comments

Happy Easter! After such a cold, snowy, icy, windy, sub-zero winter, I am so happy that spring has finally arrived. We enjoyed 70 degree temperatures this weekend in the Midwest, sat on patios eating brunch, took our new son to a park, and enjoyed being able to wear shorts and t-shirts. I love Easter time, the weather changing, flowers blooming, green lawns appearing, and the smell of new life blossoming… ah spring. I remember hunting for colorful Easter eggs, wearing a fancy dress, and eating so much chocolate my stomach hurt. Now, I get to watch our son enjoy Easter for the first time, and I get to decide which of my mom’s necklaces to wear with my outfit! Last year she debuted her Birds Nest necklaces, a simple chain with a nest of wire laced with pearls, a birds nest about to spring new life. She was inspired by the colors of Easter, turquoise, pink, blue, and white, the chirping birds outside her jewelry studio, and the birds perched on her vintage display dish. Or I could choose her Pearls and Flower necklace, golden pearls with a sparkly vintage flower pendant, to add some bling to my Easter. Or I could wear one of her vintage antique pocket watch necklaces, strung with pearls and crystals, inspired by an age of typewriters, pencil skirts, aprons, stockings, and kitten heels. A reminder that spring will only last a few precious weeks, before summer arrives…Tick Tock. What vintage piece will you wear this spring? Colorful pearls, sparkly crystals, vintage clocks…check out the Collection to find your springtime must-have this week.
