Friday Fancies

IMG_0805I probably didn’t need another ring with a bow, but I’ve had my eye on this Kate Spade Skinny Mini Bow Ring ever since it came out. And I finally got it for Christmas! Now it’s never leaving my finger.

I found the bird and the dog dishes at Anthropologie years ago, but they always carry a variety of them, including this equally precious Giraffe Trinket Dish. The two floral-patterned bowls are from the Grand Bazaar, also known as “the world’s oldest mall,” in Istanbul, but the owner of this Etsy shop also sells similar ceramic Turkish bowls, handmade in the traditional method. Finally, the Monogram Glass Plate is still available from C. Wonder.


The best part about Valentine’s Day is all of the CHERRY-flavored candy available! I was so happy to see these Tootsie Pops already in stores.


I hardly ever shop at Express any more. These days, it’s difficult to find anything there that five people I know don’t already own. Still, I’ve always liked their jewelry, which is, fortunately, less popular than their clothes. Most of their earrings, such as these little square studs, can easily be dressed up or down.
