my etsy shop opens + time for a giveaway

I am very pleased to announce the opening of myturtleneck etsy shop! To celebrate this (as well as my recent one year blog anniversary) I am giving away one of my photos. Just stop by my shop, then leave a comment and email address here on my blog telling me which one your favorite is. The photo is an 8 x 10" print on archival Epson Fine Art (matte) paper. I will chose a winner on Friday, February 10th. You'll have until Thursday at midnight.
I can't wait to hear what you think! :)

**Giveaway UPDATE** The winner of the giveaway is Elena of Tickled Pink Knits! Congratulations! Thanks so much for everyone who participated! I hope you stop by my shop again soon :)

my spring/summer necklace picks

The warm weather always means necklines get more exposure. I'm usually much more inspired to shop for jewelry during the spring and summer. Fortunately there are plenty of interesting, beautiful and affordable options around. Here are some that stood out to me in my searches...

I bought this to wear with my birthday dress and I've been wearing it almost daily. It's by Crave Jewelry on Etsy. It's unique and cute without being too cutesy. 
I'm a huge fan of Erica Weiner's work. If you haven't checked her out, you must. It's old world remixed. Sexy. Love it. 

Below are more Etsy picks:

SandandFibers (I recently snagged this one too)

This long anchor necklace by Tenthings would be perfect with my new Walter sailor shorts!

I'm not normally into bows, but I really like this. It's cute but grown up. By Shuplite on Etsy.
