V and Co how to: jersey knit bracelet i don't know what it is about this time of year that makes me just want to have my bare feet in the sand, be watching the sun setting into the ocean, and breathing in the warm salty air of the beach...as i get older, more and more i find myself missing that place i used to go to almost every.single.day. as a teen. (my skin doesn't miss it. as a matter of fact, i now wish i listened more and DID put SPF on my face...hindsight is 20/20). my mom calls me from her walk on the beach almost every morning...*sigh*yeah, i get a little homesick around this time of the year. heck on my pinterest my "dreaming of summer" has the most pictures in it. ah yes. i miss my ocean. case in point. this bracelet, brought a flood of memories, not because i used to have one like it but because i can totally see me wearing it by the beach, not caring that it's gotten salty and wet, because i can totally make another one in like less than 5 minutes flat when i get home.
Circle Zip Earbud Pouch Tutorial - Dog Under My Desk I use a little zippered pouch to carry around my earbuds since they are the fancy microphone ones and I don’t want them to break or get tangled. Some of you have commented that you are looking for some small, simple gift ideas. This is definitely simple to make, and a little more fun than the typical rectangular zippered pouch! I can see these as the perfect gift for teenage cousins or nieces or girlfriends or even teacher gifts.
DIY TShirt ReStyle I came across this tee while thrifting this week and instantly grabbed it up! I adore the colors and the unique print. Unfortunately, it needed a little make-over. To start with, it had shoulder pads (seriously, did everything have shoulder pads in the 80s??) which I promptly snipped out. DIY Friendship Bracelet For several months now, we’ve been receiving emails requesting a friendship bracelet DIY. Well, friends, ask and you shall receive! Today, we’ll give you a step by step tutorial on the classic chevron pattern. copper braclet On a hunt for some chunky curb chain to use for another DIY project I had in mind, I found and bought this very thin copper chain of the same shape but very tiny in size. While it’s not right for the original project I had in mind, I think it’s lovely all the same and looks really pretty next to the copper wire I found at the hardware store a few weeks ago. The delicate bracelets and anklets are surprisingly sturdy, even with just bent copper and no closures. I added the pearls for contrast, but it’s entirely up to you…
DIY Wrapped Spike Cuff Taking inspiration from Swellmayde’s Tribal Wrapped Choker, I’ve made a cuff version with stiff spikes rather than freely dangling ones. I’m still obsessed with cuffs so I’ve been turning any inspiration into a bracelet for more arm candy! Tools: A Mason of One’s Own One thing that we get a lot of envy of over in the Land Beyond Beyond, are the beautiful little mason jars. These beauties are ubiquitous when it comes to the expectations that we have of weddings Americana style. But, well the closest that we come to here are the Robinson’s marmalade jars – which really don’t do it for us – we love the look and feel of the lovely Mason’s. They have this chunky solid feel that we just love. So, of course you could colour us happy when we happened upon the Pure and Noble blog (check it out there are a whole load of lovely finds up in there). And we love that Brooke has repurposed some Mason Jars with spray paint – it tis rather epic.

DIY - Pink Bead Cuff Bracelet Recently I’ve been infatuated with cubed beads and have ordered a fair few over the last few weeks. I was hoping these pink beads were actually glass like the post claimed it was, unfortunately I think they are most likely plastic – but despite this annoyance I think the project came out quite well and perhaps if more paint scratches off the beads it will give the bracelet a whole different look.

Sailor Knot Rope Bracelets, Memories Of Summer - Creative Dish Patriotic Turks Head Rope Bracelet From What Knot Shop As a child, we vacationed in Nantucket and Beach Haven, on the Jersey Shore.
