The Friday Five: Elegant Watches

Last weekend’s fall back for daylight savings time really made for a productive Sunday. Did anyone else feel this way? I could have slept in, but instead, I got a jump start on my day’s to do list, and it was great. So darn productive!

So, speaking of time, I noticed that One Kings Lane is currently selling gorgeous vintage watches. My wishlist has just grown.

Design: The Sea Urchin

This is a design trend for those who want a permanent reminder of beachy living. The form and texture of these urchins are so interesting that they’re sort of just hard to resist. Am I right?
