“People connect and respond to handmade things in a different, deeper way.I seek out pieces with a soul and history, and I love layering on my own point of view.”- T. Schafhauser
Meet Sheer Addiction.
It is bold. It is feminine. It is sophisticated. It is addictive. It is stunning.
I first discovered Sheer Addiction at the Junk Bonanza and now I find myself quite frequently browsing their online shop to hold me over until the next Junk Bonanza. It's definitely a happy place for me!
Tamara Schafhauser, the creative gem behind Sheer Addiction has a wonderful way of translating her inspiration into ridiculously amazing jewelry.
From necklaces to bracelets to earrings to their adorable charm bar...everyone should own at least one of these treasures! The Wedding Collection will make you weak in the knees knowing that you have found the perfect statement piece for your big day.
Get ready to ooo and ahhh as here are a few lovelies on my wishlist...

As many of you know, I have a minor obsession with pillows...I always have too many on the furniture, beds...even for my pets! AND they are one of my favorite gifts to give...
So when I saw these sassy handmade pillows by Alexandra Ferguson, I instantly thought of the perfect gift for my newly married friend.
You can state your opinion - and save the earth. These must-have home accessories are constructed exclusively of recycled materials. Quality made in the USA - beginning to end. Here are a few of my favorites but check the complete collection here:
Enough said. Alexandra Ferguson pillow talk rocks.

I was instantly in love with the LilahV Modern Line found on Etsy. This collection of handmade jewelry features mid-century beads made by a European designer from the 1940's through the early 1960's. The designer had disappeared and the entire collection was lost for decades. Just recently the beads were found buried in a factory! (Crazy, cool story...the Jimmy Hoffa of beads?!?)
All of these original beads were painted on the on the sides with solid platinum followed by 22k gold for a gorgeous effect. The color pallet is ridiculously perfect with every combination.
LilahV. Vintage materials, modern design at its best!

One of my favorite gifts this holiday was from my sister who knows how much (a) I LOVE maps and (b) I LOVE a good puzzle.
These Personalized Hometown Puzzles from L.L. Bean feature an extract from the Delorme topographical map base centered on YOUR home! How cool. And the center piece is your home address - even shaped like a house. Adorable (and a great place to start!)
Mine is actually in progress and I'm loving the challenge...not sure which is more difficult - all of the open country or city streets?!?! I will be obsessed until it is done...tonight!
I would definitely add this to my gift guide for all occasions! SO fun for a housewarming or wedding gift.

I am a bit obsessed with Minted's new line of party decor supplies.
Minted always ROCKS but when they apply their spot-on indie design to party supplies, they really know how to close the loop when throwing a party. The patterns, the color palettes, the pieces, the wording. Love it!
Perfect party details for any occasion - a birthday or holiday party, a baby or bridal shower or a New Year's Soiree, no matter what party package you choose. See the full collection here.
Chock full of artful goodies - bunting, garland, signs, confetti and even centerpieces and stickers - it's like getting a Pinterest board starter kit in a box!
