trinkle of my musings

DSC_0008DSC_0005DSC_0011DSC_0009DSC_0004DSC_0014

Sometimes it's all about the sincere little things that make you smile. And being that I'm a complete pack rat for all sorts of trinkets that are quaint, colorful, quirky, informative, or pretty much just emanating a lovely antiqued dose of history...I just had to share my personal and precious little musings so to speak.

Just a glimpse of what's adorning my room these days (from top to bottom):

1. Moroccan style teal bangle and vintage round jewelry box stacked on some pleasant tiny coffee table books (btw: Whitehead's Colossus of New York is a must read). Antique votive candle holders. Scalloped shell mirror that I spray painted white.

2. A better image of what's lined up on my fireplace mantle... A London painting that my boyfriend Lucas gave me during a happily spooky trip to the Tower of London, my interpretive sketch of a cat wearing Marc Jacobs (don't know what I was on about when I drew it but I liked it enough that I decided to frame it), white Ikea and Target trinkets (basically anything tiny, white, and ceramic I'll buy...oh, and if I can put a tea candle in it..yeah, even better!)

3. A close-up shot of the 70's antique wooden cat (possibly one of the best figurines I sneakily scooped up from my mom's living room). I wish I could detach that silver necklace nailed to its frame and wear it as an arm cuff.

4. My little mannequin when I feel like being silly and playing "stylist". Either that or a useful tool for my Ebay sellings.

5. More coffee table fashion books. I've collected loads and am still in the process of reading all of them. Consider them inspiration on a shelf.

6. A wood carved 1950s plaque that I found sadly collecting dust in my mom's basement. I just had to wipe it down and give it a new "home". Also, I admire the Hummel-style artwork and the significant message at the bottom.

Gorgeous and intriguing...I love the way you have set everything up, there are so many trinkets but the colours don't compete and it's not overwhelming at all. love :)

I agree with you on this. It's really the small things that add so much to your life. I am myself in love with trinkets and did a post on them a while ago.

I love the things that are adorning your room. What joy!
