Favorite Finds: Neutrals.

When I set off on this version of Finds, I noticed a theme to my most recent Etsy favorites: everything I've picked lately is in soft, neutral tones, which really shouldn't be a surprise to me- most of our house is done is tans, browns, and whites, and my wardrobe would probably never be called "colorful" (helloooooo, gray!).  Whether it be the palette of the season, or I just really love my neutrals, these all jump out to me as things I need.

Every time I put a pre-printed address label on my envelope, I've wished I had a fancy stamp to use instead.  I love so many of the ones in this shop:

Tea for two!  Such pretty and simple cups for your morning or afternoon tea:

I love this long feather necklace.  Love.  It would look amazing on its own or layered with shorter necklaces.

Yes, why the hell not?  This should be my business motto, for sure.  I love the script and bold design.

 If ever there was a sucker for a little jar, it would be me.  What would you put in this?

This clock would make for an amazing showpiece over a mantle.  I love the wood piecing and its mid-century feel.

I'm thinking that at some major anniversary I'd like to get an anniversary band, but I don't really want one of those standard ones.  This vintage setting could definitely fill the bill:

Which one is your favorite?  Do you gravitate toward neutrals, too, or are you drawn to color?  And really, why the hell not?

  2. I love that feather necklace too! And, why the hell not?! That's such a great motto these days and goes along with my current one-- I do what I want.

    I tend to gravitate more toward color. Neutrals don't excite me in the same way as color does. Gotta have that color in my life!

    Why the hell not, indeed! I read a really good article about somebody who got to interview a bunch of famous business people, and among them was Richard Branson. He kept spurting out things like, "Just go for it!" and "You'll figure it out after you start!" I was shocked to learn how little he planned things in the beginning, but it's kind of awesome.


    Also, neutrals forever.

  5. I guess a little bit of throwing caution to the wind can be a good thing in business!
