We Love it Wednesday: Vancouver Olympics

It's that time of year, well, that time of year that comes every two years. I love it. It's an amazing feeling knowing that for 17 days, the entire world can come together and swell with pride for their home country. Language barriers cease to exist, as all athletes come for one goal - to support their country with the hope of bringing home a medal.

In honor of those beautiful tokens of accomplishment, here's a look at a few gold, silver and bronze finds:

1. Gold Olympic necklace by Made by Sam
2. Silver Moose necklace by Zooz Jewelry
3. Bronze Bird Postcard necklace by Chrys Designs Jewelry

Sometimes I want to be an Olympic athlete and wish I would have pursued all those activities my parents generously offered through my childhood. Then I sit back, think of my age and realize that I used my talents elsewhere. In the meantime, I'll gladly relax on the couch with a blanket and a glass of wine and cheer on those athletes. Go USA!

The snowboarding half-pipe is one of my favorite events to watch, along with speed skating.

We love it Wednesday: Cake Plates

Wouldn't a table full desserts sitting on top of these recycled vintage cake plates be oh so beautiful? Etsy seller Style Garden has a shop full of handmade mix and match tiered dessert plates that are quirky while still being elegant. Plus, they come at a really affordable price! Looks like I need to have a party so I have an excuse to buy one!
