Spring, stay a while longer…..

Right now the weather in California feels warm against the skin, no more harsh cold….anything below 65 to us on the West Coast feels harsh….and Spring has zoomed right past me…..I wanted to take a moment and show you some gorgeous photography to bid farewell to spring…straight from the studio of my dear friend Helene from Connecticut. She is a brilliant photographer, and she has traveled to some amazing places….her pictures capture the essence of color…..I encourage you to pop over to her site and take a peek at her talent….her pics make fabulous framed art. Here is her website http://www.hms-photography.com/http://www.hms-photography.com/ , or just click on the photo for link.

Chandeliers, how I dream of thee….

, ,

Found this today on Pinterest…isn’t this the most simple serene bedroom? I love how everything is clean and neutral…and of course the chandelier is fabulous. If I could hang a chandelier in every corner of my house and not be mocked by my all boy household…I would do it in a heartbeat. But in reality people, I live with 4 guys…..one grown man, a man-child and 2 little even grubbier boys….I am lucky that the most serene neutral area in my house is the tiny clean section in the back of the laundry room where no one ventures…..I love the fantasy of pinterest! Someday it will be mine

Pinterest…..Want it all!!!.

I am in love with all things Pinterest! I sit down with my morning coffee….which ends up 2 morning coffees…and the day can disappear if I am not watchful of the time. I just found this pin, and I wanted to rush out and sit here with my coffee. But unfortunately, I don’t have a spot like this at home….so now when my hubby gets home…guess what conversation we will have…..how can we create a spot like this in our yard? Which in my husbands mind will translate into…..this is gonna cost me a bundle, and now I must be dragged across the town for at least 2 weekends to locate this stuff.  Poor husbands, they probably secretly loathe Pinterest.

Cherish necklace

Sparkles and whimsy…Copper Cherish necklace with vintage rhinestone button. I adore long statement necklaces…and this one is a one of a kind created by me…I had come across a little stash of these vintage buttons..I decided to incorporate them into jewelry…the hard part was deciding not to keep this one, its my favorite. You can view my other pieces in my etsy store.

The Journey Necklace

When I stumbled upon these brilliant little rhinestone buttons, I snapped them up and had to create something fun with them….hence the Journey Necklace was born. https://www.etsy.com/listing/100208356/journey-charm-rhinestone-ball-chain

The new shop is almost up and running!!

I have been chomping at the bit getting through all the details of getting The Greige Rabbit shop ready to go viral. Trying to select the perfect website designer, making sure the pages will look just right. I don’t think I planned so much since I got married or had my first baby boy. I look forward to meeting new friends through this experience. In the meantime, here are a couple of pics of some jewelry I will be listing soon on etsy….. until the new website is ready to go….

 

Welcome to the Gilded Rabbit Blog…..

Behind the weathered little cottage….. underneath the overgrowth of hedge and thistles, lies a path descending down into the burrow of the little gilded rabbit. It is a place of aged whimsy , and lost tattered trinkets that still retain a smidgen of past elegance…..where colors are a perfect serenity of grey and beige, warm and cool to the senses. It is here, in this garden forlorn…..perfectly  normal for a rabbit to don a strand of aged pearls to begin the days adventures.
Looking forward to this new beginning,

Jill
