Slipping Autumn On Your Ears...

Hello lovely humans. Perhaps it's still quite warm where you are, or perhaps it's blustery, but mid-September is here and we're seeing both some nature signs of Autumn, as well as imagery, outfits, recipes and the like from friends and media. I love it all, I must say...

I realize not everyone fawns over autumn as much as myself and others, but seriously -- as magical as Spring is, I feel as though there is an special, extra-charged enthusiasm for this season. It's just so satisfying, magical and cozy

And would you not agree that if Good Looking Objects were a season, it would be Autumn? The fact that they are all offered in this lovely, high quality and generous layer of gold plating makes the point even stronger, as they are reminiscent of the color of the turning leaves. 

In the shop currently you'll find Oak, Maple, Heliotrope. The Large Oak Leaf Earrings are my oldest best seller - it is often relayed to my by customers that it is their most often worn pair of earrings, and that they get many compliments on them. I love that they are the perfect type of "large" -- not ginormous, but quite noticeable and striking, with such detail and that lovely golden gleam.

Then we also have the Branch Earrings up above. The amazingly talented Jessica Roux (from whom I commissioned the illustration on my home page) said they remind her of the suit of wands in tarot, which are fire signs, along with her astrological sign. 

I'm just here, enjoying the blowing in of Autumn. Well not just that, being a human being involves a lot more of course. And speaking of being human, a quote I came across today:

"The trees are about to show us

how lovely it is to

let things go."

 

Well wishes to you all for letting the unhelpful fall away, for coziness, favorite sweater and crisp breezes.

Baby Photos of Fashion Bloggers. You're Welcome.

Hey folks! I won't be talking a whole lot -- this post is about the photos! Thanks so much to these sweet beings for being as tickled as I was at the idea of this post! If any photos are too small, right click to open photo in a new tab or window and you'll see them larger. Note that you can visit these stupendous ladies' websites by clicking the bolded title of their blogs, as I introduce them:

1. Klara of A Robot Heart

It all started (the idea for this post) with this photo on the left. I'm just obsessed with it. It's friggin' adorable. Klara and loaf of bread = magic. The first of a few more curly ladies below...

Can I just be linguistically cliche and say "I CAN'T EVEN"? Look at that pose below on the left! And those luxurious blonde curls! The funny thing is that I could easily be talking about the above photo as well, haha...

Oh my gosh I wanna squeeze her. Look at this cute little parcel! Another curly one.

4. Mackenzie of Kenzy Who

Alright, we appear to be in a more straight-hair section of the blog post now. Doesn't Mackenzie look kinda the same? So sweet <3 Random fact -- it occurs to me that she is also one of a few ladies in this post that play video games. Below left she is with her little sister who she says takes most of her blog photos - what a sweet sister!

In <3 with this softball photo -- she looks like she's in the prime of her career, the star player, every team wants her. And that little floral track suit -- too much!

6. Jennif Hsieh of JennifHsieh.com

I'm a sucker for a good bob cut <3 As well as little children in puffy clothing! Puff it all up for ultimate cuteness, please and thank you. Speaking of hair, my hair is probably closest to Jennif's and these photos are making me proud of that (as much as I fawn over curls, and other fun hair colors)!

7. Me, Melinda of Good Looking Objects

To say that I was a character would maybe be an understatement. And still is..haha. Also, It amazes me that I have almost-black hair as an adult -- look how light my hair is on the left! AND,  I still really wish I was a princess, my own kinda princess.

I so hope you've enjoyed this <3 Would you like more installments of this baby photos theme? More posts from my random and curious mind? Comment below and make it known! Don't say I didn't warn you though. Also be sure to see the jewelry that is born from my mind and available for you to adorn yourself: the jewels.

(And don't forget to be kind to yourself. We're all pretty much little children inside.)
