I'm Loving Lately...

Coral and Gold!  Great minds think alike- my husband and sister both gave me jewelry for Christmas in this combo.  My husband gave me these coral earrings- I love them and wear them every day.  I love estate jewelry- it's usually set in 18k gold, and the quality is usually much better than what you can buy new for the same price.  

My sister gave me this fab enamel bangle bracelet with two cheetahs.  Coral and cheetahs are a fab combo, don't you think?  Very David Webb-esque (and from J.Crew).

Have you watched Homeland?  We received Season 1 and have been staying up until midnight (which is significant for a pregnant lady!) every night watching it.  It is so good.  It's on Showtime, so it's gratuitious everything and definitely not for the whole fam, but the story, acting, etc leave me on the edge of my seat.  And it has an underlying love story (sort of) so it's not all spies and guns.  They film here in Charlotte, so it's fun to see landmarks I recognize.  We are contemplating ordering Showtime so we can watch Season 2!

And a couple of finds over the holidays...

A vintage Gucci horsebit ice bucket!  Isn't it cool?  I didn't know Gucci made ice buckets, but apparently they had a line of barware in the 70's.  It was black with tarnish when I found it, so I guess no one wanted it.  But I rolled the dice and bought it anyway, and thankfully it polished perfectly. 

And this giltwood shell mirror.  I am so tempted to keep it...  (I'm selling it on One Kings Lane because I lose money every time I ship mirrors myself...)
