love*birds: 11.2.11 and a giveaway!

happy wednesday all! it's wednesday, right? i'm losing track! so i guess one of the things i love this week is fast work weeks...and,
~ nora and i are crazy brainstorming about our next sale and some other fantastic ideas for two birds. we couldn't be more excited!
~ every time i look at my kids, i smile. they make me so happy
~ i am having a love/hate relationship with this peanut/candy corn mix that is sitting at my desk at work. it's ok to eat for breakfast, right?
~ the weather in minnesota is delightful. the trees are gorgeous shades of yellow, orange and red. i love fall!
~ we have a new sponsor and she is wonderful! so wonderful that we are hosting a giveaway for her etsy shop. see the details below.

megan bird's picks
bakelite and brass key necklace
remember that sponsor i mentioned? (if you don't, you should probably get your head checked!) well, this is one of her pieces. bakelite? loves!

third times a charm necklace
i love the geometric, almost armor feel of this necklace. it definitely makes a statement!

jeffrey campbell zoomies
have i posted about these before? sorry if i did...but they are definitely fabulous enough to be talked about over and over (and over) again.

50s lace wiggle dress
how gorgeous is this? it would be perfect for that fancy date night out!

red cross-body vintage purse
the perfect thrifting bag. it fits your money, your keys, your chapstick and your phone. (that's all i need for thrifting!) and it's oh so cute!!

nora bird's picks



another gorgeous necklace from heather's shop! i love it so much, i found the following dream fall outfit to go with it!


i am obsessed with this sweater. i love the bell sleeves, the tie waist, the perfect fall color! it is a must have!


um, how cute would these jeans look with that necklace and sweater above? really really cute, that's how!


top the whole look off with this adorable, vintage inspired coat and you are almost ready to go! almost...


but not quite, because you, of course, need a vintage cross-body bag to finish the entire look. i think this one is perfect!

  14. my fave http://www.etsy.com/listing/75490371/marbled-green-bakelite-earrings

    i'd pair with nora bird's 1970's brown blouse, & bell jeans i'd wear the hey outta both. of course peanuts are healthy they have protein, & the good for your body kind of fat, & oil, like avocados, right?

  18. I've purchased jewelry from Petit Oiseau before, and just loved it! My cherry Bakelite necklace is one of my favorites actually. I love so many things in her shop, it's hard to choose. I really like her rings but those butterscotch buttons are also so appealing right now too! :)
