The Weekly Gimme – The Binding Bee

key necklaceI’ve been wanting to start this for a long time.  A place where I can share my treasures with you.

I find myself constantly searching, and finding, beautiful things.

I rummage though countless thrift stores, garage sales, art galleries, etsy-ish places, and of course online locations.

I find great stuff.  And I want to share it with you.

I’m not bragging, I consider it more like sharing a secret with a good friend.

Today?  I’m wearing The Binding Bee.

With tiny little archival papers between reclaimed leather, I’m letting my girls draw me little love notes within the pages.

I love it.  Please gimme.

Come back every weekend, to discover what I’ve found for the weekly gimme.




  1. Oh! I love this idea! Can’t wait to see all the fun stuff you find. 🙂

  4. Emily, I feel so honored that my necklace is the first feature on your “weekly gimme”. Thank you for supporting local artists like me and for the oh-so-sweet description here on your blog. I hope to see you around at other shows or in a thrift store perhaps. I’ll be checking back to see what else makes it on your list! Thanks again.
