This week’s Covet is a little different. Instead of featuring a single artist, shop or item I’m featuring the shade of washed navy. Navy has been a trending neutral for awhile now, but for this autumn I’m loving this vintage hue, especially as an accent to gold, peach or berry. Links at the bottom…
FEATURED // Stationary – YOURS IS THE EARTH // Backpack – SABRINATACH // Art Print – Tastes Orangey // Necklace – ISWAS+WILLBE // Fabric – Smile Stars // Vintage Play Money – Third Shift // Ampersand Print – Calamari Studio // Navy Bakers Twine – Olivemanna
It’s a rainy spring Saturday here in Ohio. I just got my pair of Treton Skerry Reslig rain boots, just like these on sale at Public Bikes (I got mine from Fab). It may be gray outside, but I think I’m going to pull on my shiny yellow wellies and go for a walk.
Here are some more cheery brights to liven up your Saturday…

We have a crazy weekend ahead of us. It’s our little niece’s first birthday and I have some baking and wrapping to do! I don’t think I have any non-christmas wrapping paper, so I may have to get a little creative. All I know is I won’t be sleeping in until Sunday!
I just found LindsayLou‘s shop and I’m loving all the beautifully handcrafted stud earrings! These little fawns were too perfect. Though I also adore the feathers. Check out her shop for more beautiful earrings and more.
This weekend, why not start someone’s etsy shop on the right foot! Be their first sale (I did it last night)! You can use the Pounce tool to discover shops awaiting their first sale or here are some I found…
And of course your links for the weekend:
Have a lovely autumn weekend!

Happy Friday everyone!
It’s been a crazy week. The sudden arrival of fall weather has be scrambling to find something suitable to wear and work is so busy. We are kind of settling into the new routine but it’s going to take some time. I was not feeling well yesterday, so again I apologize for not getting a post to you. We are looking at more houses this Sunday. Saw one we really liked last week, but want to see some more on our list before we really make any decisions.
And of course your links…
