City Thistle

Spring is the time of year I love to purchase a few inexpensive pieces of jewelry that will go with all my simple tee shirts, tanks, and dresses. My wardrobe tends to be pretty plain, and I use accessories to dress up my style.

Hands down, without a doubt my favorite place to find treasures is online, particularly Etsy. I love Etsy in particular for two reasons.

1. I know I'm supporting small business, often times work at home moms.

2. My purchase is unique. Buying handmade goods typically ensures whatever you buy is being made in small batches, and oftentimes one of a kind.

City Thistle is one of my new favorite places on Etsy to shop for cool, reasonably priced accessories. Created by a mom of two small little boys, I love that she finds inspiration from both her childhood home in Tennessee, as well as her stay in far away Malawi.

Bethany, the owner of City Thistle, recently gifted me the Icy Rose Necklace ($23), and I adore it. It's the perfect blend of modern simplicity, with a vintage feel. It goes with almost everything I own, considering I'm the queen of black/gray and beige.

I've worn it just a few times, and have received compliments each and every time I put it around my neck. My next City Thistle piece might have to be this Pretty in Pink Necklace & Earring Set, or maybe a funky hair pin.

You know, Mother's Day is just around the corner!
