Some favourite views of 2009


Colette's boutique

We here at DTI are lovers of pretty, shiny things. This includes jewelry. We're excited to have Colette on board as a new sponsor. She has a fabulous Etsy store, Colette's Boutique, where she sells her beautifully hand-crafted earrings, necklaces and bracelets made from semi precious gemstones, sterling and fine silver and sometimes crystals and other type of beads. (I've already poked my boyfriend who is sitting next to me on the couch to point out a couple of pieces that caught my eye). Her shop also includes some jewelry tutorials, for all you crafty folks out there. I'm including some of favourites below (clicking on an image takes you directly to the listing). Welcome Colette!
