current obsession wednesday: all things handmade!!

there's something in the water.

i'm currently loving brooke fraser's new song, something in the water. she is the female vocalist to one of my all-time favorite worship bands, hillsong. love her voice and esp love the lyrics to all of her songs. i attended one of her concerts back in chicago at the house of blues. if i could love an artist and her work even more than i already did, it was on that particular night. some of my other faves of hers is shadowfeet and arithmetic. and if you're like me, you'll notice her sweet sense of style in her music videos. 
as for other current obsessions this week, have you noticed my love for yarnplusyarn's cowl? i wore it last week - and since the temps dropped here in the south, this baby has been around my neck every day this week. it's so ridiculously warm and soft.  

 cowl: yarnplusyarn
plum tee: rawrs
black vest: forever21
white long-sleeved tee: unknown. just found it in the closet. hehe.
stretch jeans: aeropostle
black suede boots: rampage

and a few more current obsessions...
i'm also in love with my new plum tee from rawrs. i won this fitted tee from a sandyalamode giveaway - and i'm totally in LOVE with it! note that i'm not your actual t-shirt kind of girl...unless there is something special about it. like i'm liking the fit of this - and i love the little Hawaiian chick rocking the front. (sorry, that my vest is semi covering her up. my bad.) plus the purple is the perfect shade. 

oh and last week was quite the week for packages. so not only did i receive my cowl and the tee in the mail, here are a couple of other goodies i received that i'm swooooning over. you can see why. 

first off, who isn't gushing over anything jessica makes? i'm so glad i snagged one of these babies before she closed up shop for the holidays. i wore my mustard modern pearl rosette necklace last sunday to church, got so many lovely comments on it, and loved how it paired well with a teal polka-dot dress i had on. wish i got a picture of the ensemble but it was a pretty rushed sunday from church to headed out to savannah to meet up with ryan's family. but i'm pretty sure with how much i love this necklace, it's bound to make it's appearance on the blog more than a few times.

now don't hate me, but i won yet another giveaway a couple weeks ago. this time from busybeelauren's blog - and i was so thrilled to have won since i really wanted this clutch from merica designs. are not the details and the colors so fantastic! the inside of it is so perfect too with all of its little pockets. cannot wait to use this out - and like my necklace, it's bound to make several appearances!  

and i don't know if i'm the only one out there like this, but etsy has been especially hard to get off of late at night. it's been my recent obsession. i keep planning to shop for christmas gifts and then i find all these other goodies there. it doesn't help that there are so many sweet deals on there for the holidays. 

so yeah, current obsessions was a little different today...but hey, these are a few of the things i'm drooling over. hope you enjoyed it nonetheless!
