Stunning antique jewelry

They sure don't make jewelry like they used to. Here are three beautiful antique pieces I found online that I could never afford, but love to look at!

Edwardian Style Platinum Diamond & Sapphire Calibre Pendant at Lang Antique & Estate Jewelry

14k Diamond & Pearl bangle at Maurice Ltd.

Vintage Filigree Diamond Necklace Pearls Platinum at Fay Cullen

Decorating

Posts this month may be a bit more scarce as Ryan and I prepare to leave our cozy condo and move into our new house. I can't wait to post more jewelry (I'm sitting on a mountain of wonderful vintage earrings), but unfortunately I've got lots of time consuming planning to finish up before getting back in the swing of things.

Pinterest has become my haven for decorating ideas. Our new living room has wood paneling on the bottom half of the walls and is in desperate need of an update. I found this image through Pinterest and it will be the basis of our living room colour palette. We'll paint the wood paneling white and the walls above a light greyish-blue.

Paper + Typography

I came across these beautiful paper letters on Pinterest. The set is called paper + typography by Sabina Karnik whose paper art portfolio can be seen on Behance.net. She has a bunch of wonderful paper art worth checking out!
