I got a pair of sweet vintage earrings at a garage sale recently and decided to add a little funk to them yesterday. I wanted a kind of bohemian, global feel to them. The big center part that kind of looks like a flower is the original earring. Everything else I added on. What do you think?

I have been in a neutrals color mood lately. Usually I'm all about bright colors, but lately I've been drawn to whites, creams, grays and browns. It's being reflected in my jewelry, as you can see from the piece above. I'll be listing this bracelet in my etsy shop this week.

I made this bracelet awhile back, and it didn't quite feel finished. That is until I found the coolest cowboy boot charm at one of my local bead shops. Now it feels satisfyingly finished and I can't decide if I want to put it in my etsy shop or keep it for myself!

Yesterday I went with a few friends on a hike to Beacon Rock in Washington State, about 45 minutes drive from Portland. What a ride! The highway runs parallel to the river and all around are breathtaking views of the Gorge area.
The hike is straight up and a little less than a mile long, with amazing views of the valley, river and mountains as you went up. I took photos all the way up, so you could hike with me. Hope you enjoy it!
