DIY: Ribbon Statement Necklace

Tuesday, November 13, 2012
I decided to make a necklace.  It's semi-DIY b/c I used a piece from the {styled} By Tori Spelling TM collection from JoAnn's.   Here's a quick rundown of how easy this was:

 I cut two pieces of 5/8" wide black satin ribbon approximately 18" long.

The I tied a knot around the end rings of the "necklace" and cut off the excess.

I tied two knots on the ribbon to hold as place markers for when I tie the necklace on.

Coats McGoat

Wednesday, November 7, 2012
Although I live in North Texas (I want to say Dallas so bad), and the winters are not super cold, we have our share of chilly days.  I need a coat for these days ahead.  I'm starting early because while we have had some cooler weather, it was in the 70s yesterday.  Sigh.  I'm ready for fall clothes!  And coat weather.  I'm into shearling now for some reason.  Not sure if it's the trendiest thing going but I sure found a lot of cute coats with shearling details that I like.  Here are some in all price points that I think would work great for a Dallas North Texas winter.

Which do you like best?
