A few weeks ago a company called Vonjet Silhouettes contacted me in order to purchase a sponsored post. I am very picky about who I chose to spotlight here on The Glamorous Housewife, and I swear for every ten companies that contact me to be on the blog, maybe one or two actually make it. Because Mother’s Day is coming up on May 11th, (that’s in two weeks ladies! Two. Weeks.) I have been getting more than my usual amount of sponsored post inquiries, and quite a few of them are really awesome. So this week I will be featuring them so you have time to order your mother gifts (and give ideas to your spouse for their mother) and have them delivered.
I seem to be in an accessory mood lately. For some reason I am dying to buy jewelry! I posted some of the items I was interested in here, but as I was trolling the internet I came across a jewelry company called Tatty Devine and it was like a revelation! Why have I not heard of this brand before now? I mean their goods are exactly to my taste: glamorous with a hint of kitsch and lots of color! I did some research and found they are a British company and it is designed and run by two dynamic women artists. You can see their story in the video below:
Wouldn’t it be delightful to work there? I just love supporting talented female entrepreneurs, don’t you? I rounded up a bunch of items that are for sale in the States, but if you live in the UK their goods should be much easier to find. You can even visit their store!

Mexican Embroidery Necklace (here)
Magpie Necklace (here)
Glasses Necklace (here)
Parakeet Necklace (here)
Fallen Leaves Necklace (here)
Sugar Skull Necklace (here)
Aren’t they all just gorgeous? I purchased the Mexican Embroidery and Falling Leaves necklaces because they are just so chic. I am thinking acrylic is the modern version of bakelite or lucite and I really believe these jewelry pieces are equal to some of the best vintage costume jewelry in both quality and in their unique beauty.

I have only recently become more enamored with jewelry. When you have small children it can be difficult to wear large earrings and necklaces because the babies always pull on them and I found it easier to just leave my adornments on my dressing table. Now that my kids are older I have reopened my jewelry box and now I am finding accessorizing to be so much fun! My favorite type of finery is earrings, but I have been really getting into necklaces and brooches as well. Here are some of the vintage and vintage inspired jewelry I have my eye on and am thinking about adding to my collection.

Every week I like to bring to you something amazing I found on Etsy and this week is no exception. I think it is incredibly important to support our fellow artisans and keep crafting alive a well here in the world. This week I am focusing on a store called Baby Jives Co. Artist and owner Jahje Bath Ives named her company after her nickname for her first born. Isn’t that cute? In her words she “creates modern heirlooms inspired by nature.” I am especially smitten with the bird on twigs mobiles. If you know someone who is having a baby, I think these are the perfect gift.
A few weeks ago a threw a picnic themed party. I decided to take two of the table runners I made for that party and style them in a new way. Here is a shot from the picnic party:
As you can see, I had the runners going perpendicular to the table and they were used as de facto place mats. The flowers were arranged in different sized glass jars and I used little mason jars with straws as glasses.
In the second table setting I placed two of the runners along the center of table and then used the same glass jars but instead of clumping them in bunches, I scattered them along the table. Then I filled them with peonies. I used the mason jars as glasses again, only this time without straws.
By switching out the plain white dishes for these vintage floral plates and switching the napkins for solid green, I gave the table a whole new look.
I have found I tend to use the same items for my tablescapes over and over again, I just try to rearrange them in new ways. Sometimes just changing out one or two items can give your table a whole new look.
