Good afternoon, beautiful people. How are you? It's a lovely fall day here in Brooklyn. There's a perfect amount of chill in the air, and I'm going to wear a corduroy coat that I picked up on Saturday. I was lucky enough to visit my parents in Rhode Island this weekend, and my mom and I went on an epic thrifting trip. I scored some primo stuff, including the jacket!
I usually take the bus but rode the train this time, even though it's a little more expensive. I'm so glad I did. The foliage was the most gorgeous thing I've seen recently. I know it's corny, but the beauty just made my heart so full. I love riding on trains, cars- hell even on the bus. There's something comforting about sitting still as the world moves around you. One of my favorite things to do.
Anyway, to jump to a completely different subject, I'm really excited to tell you about this wonderful new necklace I procured from a super cute online shop (based right here in Brooklyn!) called Uncommon Goods. They sell handmade artisan products, which is right up my alley. So many of the pretty things on their website will take your breath away, and I can definitely say their jewelry section is to die for. Also, pretty much anything in their shop would make a cool and unique Christmas gift (hint hint :P) See here!
When we were talking about working together, I knew exactly the piece that I wanted- this star necklace made out of repurposed guitar strings and drum cymbals! The star is cut from a broken cymbal, and the strings are the circle that wrap around it. I fell for it hard. To my surprise, it was in my mailbox in the blink of an eye, and I was in constant contact with the very helpful customer service rep the entire time!
Being a musician, I love the feeling of having a little bit of music with me wherever I go, and that's what makes this necklace super special to me. The only thing- I just wish the chain were a little longer. I like dangly pendants :)
Finally, I want to say that I just have a good feeling about UncommonGoods. My communication with them has been very warm, I think what they do is awesome, and their stuff is so lovely!
