I recently purchased a necklace on Etsy from Arete, and it arrived yesterday! I was so blown away by it that I had to take some photos and do a little write up here about the shop!

This necklace cost me $8, which I think is a bargain for the quality! It arrived wrapped in a pretty kraft colored box, tied up with a bit of teal ribbon and twine. Beth included a little button as well. I went and ran a few errands this morning and two people even commented on it!

Here are a couple additional photos from her shop (click each to visit the item):

Beth is generously offering Paper*Cakes readers a 15% discount until the end of may - I advise you take advantage of this!! :) Just use the code "Paper*Cakes" in the notes to seller at checkout.

Heart of the Home

I seem to have a bit of a mental block when it comes decorating the heart of my home.
There are so many fun ideas, I can't seem to decide what route to follow... 
Retro, Shabby Chic, one theme or another, or just clean and simple?
here were a few kitchen items that struck my fancy,
Do they strike yours? If they do click on the image to find out more.
