Boredom, Vintage Shops, and Wedding Rings

I'm still around. Being bored out of my skull. Thankfully, I can go back to work tomorrow. I got a haircut the other day. It's bad. Really bad, but it'll grow. So, to make myself feel better about my bad haircut, I'm going to dye it. I haven't decided on a color yet, but am leaning towards red.

There's a vintage shop closing down and selling everything for $10 or less. I am a female and needless to say, I went shopping. I got a Tocca dress, an awesome frilly jacket, a cute summery skirt, and a pair of peacock feather earrings. I just need to go back and snatch the red sari they had, if it's still there. I hope it is.

Wedding planning is still progressing at a good rate for how far off we are from the big day. I have invitations, R.S.V.P. cards, and most of the directions sheet typed up. A dear friend, Ash over at The Thing About Daisies..., is sending me some paper samples so I can play with the colors more. The color scheme is currently based on peacock feathers. I sent a picture of the invitation mock-up to T and... he liked it. Finally, something he likes. Last night we did some pseuo-band shopping on Etsy. It was a lot of fun and we found some very nice rings. I'm partial to a titanium band with an inset pinstripe of silver from TitaniumKnights. I'd rather the silver stripe to be white gold to match my engagement ring. There are a couple of bands that T liked as well.

These pictures are taken from TitaniumKnights.

My pick for me.

Titanium 2mm Wide Silver Inlay

Two options for T.

Titanium Ring with Two White Gold Inlays

Titanium Ring Bevel Cut 1mm offset Silver Inlay

  1. I love the bands! The bevel cut looks great and I agree, I like the subtle color change between the titanium and white gold.
