If I had to choose, I’d pick a set of four coasters, like these pine trees. They match this painting that Andrew and I have — and most of our decor is nature-inspired.

Or these really cute bicycle built for two coasters. I can’t wait to get some serious bike riding in this summer.

Happy Weekend, loves! We wanted to pop in with this gorgeous find we spotted over at Starletta Designs. I looove druzy jewelry, especially when the piece pops with pretty colors. That’s why these colorful druzy necklaces caught my eye! I like the pink best, but that mint is a lovely color, too. Which color is your favorite?

But a brooch isn’t limited to vintage weddings alone. It’s possible to pull off a modern look with a brooch, and today we’re showing you six ways to do it. You’ll also be able to cross off something old, something new, and something blue from your list. Now you just need to borrow something — oh, and one of these. With each of these finds, we’re also telling you why it’s a modern twist on a traditionally vintage look. Enjoy!

6. This brooch ribbon necklace

And finally, this brooch ribbon necklace is more modern because of the ribbon. Instead of pearls or a traditional chain, this necklace ties in the back with a single satin ribbon. I adore this piece. By White Garden Lace.
