Jewellery Display Frame DIY

So the other day i posted something about this jewellery display frames by Pottery Barn which are gorgeous, but if you don't want to spend all that money nor do you want to buy from a big corporation (plus, you would rather spent the money on beautiful jewelry like this) make your own!! it's so simple and looks beautiful.
This DIY is from Real Simple and i found it on this gorgeous Pinterest board (have i told you how cool Pinterest is? you should go check it out!).
To see exactly what you'll need and the instructions to complete this project, go to Real Simple for the step by step and have fun!

G I V E A W A Y !

I'm so happy to announce that i'm having my first blog giveaway!
Last week i made three buntings like the one in the photos for the baby shower of my friend Karla, one she got to keep to decorate her baby's room, one Amelia got to keep for her bedroom and the third one, one of my readers is going to receive it in the mail! For this, you have to participate on this giveaway and here is how you can:

1.- Leave a comment on this post and
2.-Go to The Angry Weather's Facebook fanpage and click LIKE!
3.-You can have an extra entry if you also follow my blog ;)

That's it!!! so simple, and on September 22 i'll make the raffle and announce the winner :D here on my blog, on my twitter account, on my Facebook fan page and i'll send a message to the lucky winner through Facebook.
I'll send this prize ANYWHERE in the world so don't be shy and participate!

The bunting measures 2.5 meters long (or 8.20 feet) and has 9 lovely fabric flags in 4 different patterns. Each flag measures 8 inches long. The colour combination is green, red, white and a bit of pink. It would look lovely on a kitchen, over your bed, on a nursery or in the garden.
This color scheme is very summery and i know summer is almost over, but that won't be a problem for those in tropical climates, and for the ones (like me!) living in more cold climates, it'll be a lovely reminder of those beautiful summer afternoons through the whole winter season!

All images are mine.
I hope you are as excited as i am!
Good luck to you all!!
UPDATE: i have moved the date for the raffle to September 6th!!

Today I Love

Hello there! how are you this monday? Hope very well and that you had a really nice weekend.
Ours was ok. We spent it doing stuff we HAD to do, so it wasn't that fun but, we got things done and that sure it's something good :)
I want to show you some images that have my mind wandering in beautiful places...

Little church in Iceland by Photographer Bragi Thor Joseffson, via Ruffled blog.
One of my dreams is to go to Iceland, i think it must be the most magical and beautiful place in the world. I feel so attracted by the austerity of its geography and the magnificence of its landscapes. I love this image, it's like a scene from a dream.

Rain in the ocean. I just realized that today i love like, dark places, and rain and fog, black painted churches and loneliness...hmm. I guess i'm in the dark side today, which i find very cool. Very inspiring.

Well, isn't this one sweet?!
I wonder, how are you feeling today?

New Listing!

I'm all about flowers lately and couldn't help but create this two pairs of earrings that are for sale now at The Angry Weather.
Both of them are tiny, delicate and elegant, but don't get them wrong, they have this cool attitude and edgy feel in them and will look good with any outfit: from that gorgeous dress to the pair of jeans, concert t-shirt and foulard ;)
Take a look:

Midnight Blossom, sterling silver and faceted onyx.

As you may have noticed i'm in love with dome shaped jewelry and that's what i always try (well, not really try, it just happens!) to incorporate the dome on my designs. I hope you like this two new babies i have in store!
