All That Sparkles

As the holidays grow closer, I am peeking often online for unique gift ideas. I love purchasing from independent artists... as well as shopping locally for really amazing presents. I came across beautiful bracelets from ShopClementine on Etsy. This artist has a fabulous shop & her bracelets are just brilliant! Here are two of my very in blue sapphire, the other in tanzanite.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Yesterday was just crazy gusty and windy...flickering lights & rattle the windows winds! I love stormy days like candles just in case we lose power. Perfect night for a good suspenseful book. I'm currently reading The Wicked Girls by Alex Marwood.

I recently came across beautiful paraffin candles by the company Melt. They have a collection that is currently available at Target. Great addition to the kitchen island area along with some autumn decorations. These candles smell amazing, burn for approx. 40 hours and are priced at about the $15 mark. Great idea for teacher gifts, hostess gifts and Thanksgiving! I love the tile design on the glass...I save pretty holders, clean them out & use them at my desk. Perfect for paperclips, staples or stamps....
