Thing o’ the day: necklaces of spoons, airplanes and other inanimate objects

I love jewelry. I also love things that are small. I also love things that are random, shiny, semi-precious and bird-themed.

Welcome. Bienvenue. Добро пожаловать. Bienvenidos.

Welcome to my little blog. This is basically a blog of things I would love to buy in DC, but often do not buy in DC because I am not made of money. It is also a blog to showcase the creativity and irreverent style that DC has to offer if you know where to look. DC may not be known for style, but it has much more than people often give it credit for. This I know.

Most of the entries will showcase lovely things from places around my area of the city, U Street Corridor, Columbia Heights, North Dupont, Logan Circle, Shaw, Mount Pleasant, because I am lazy. There will be plenty of pictures and only some text, because I am not good at describing things.  Visit often, comment if you feel like it, and above all, continue loving to consume things. It’s the American way.

(OH. and my header photo is from Ohad’s photoblog: http://ohad.me/photos. It was taken on a section of 14th street near U Street that has since been renovated quite a bit. The wall was repainted right after the photo was taken)
