GIVEAWAY: Antique Anchor Button Earrings

Hello all! Aren't you guys so happy it is finally friday?! 
Well on top of the good news of upcoming days off, 
we will be having our very first giveaway

I'd like to introduce you all to one of the most fantastic couples around, 
Leland & Charla

A little bit about them: 

The Foundry is a soon-to-be husband and wife team from opposite coasts - he wants to be a sailor and she wants to be a hippie. Their name, the Foundry, is a double entendre referencing both the thrill of a good find and an allusion to the lead type foundries that letterpress printing used to (and often still does) rely on. Currently focusing on design prints and jewelry, they will be introducing personalized letterpress and giclée invitations and cards as well as a line of natural products like essential oil dryer bags and solid perfume. 

When they're not working on Foundry goods, they can be found foraging wild mushrooms, local edible plants, and interesting wood. Some of their more landmark adventures have included making stinging nettle gnocchi, finding western giant puffball mushrooms, and processing endless amounts of tomatoes from last year's community garden. The Foundry's founders love food and spend most of their budget on ingredients or fun edible outings every month. They don't have any kids yet, but they do have four dependents in the form of friendly feathered fowl: an americauna, a black star, a buff cochin, and a light brahma. When they aren't up to their eyes in soil or perfecting the chicken coop, they're dreaming about their next bout of travels. Between the two of them, they have been to 25 countries and lived in 6, which has contributed to their eclectic and ever-growing interests. 

Keep your eyes open for a blog detailing their findings, creations, and exploits (coming soon!) and check out their Foundry goods here.

  44. Love the blog girlie. You are so amazing. As for the earrings.... Hmmm maybe wear them with anything once my clothes finally arrive. It has been so long I forget what I own anymore. I would wear them to honor the "good ol' days" when Jim was in the navy and we "followed you guys everywhere"!

  46. they are adorable at first i had no what i would wear them with . although eventually i thought i end up wearing everything with what i call my pink cow girl dress. its fuchsia pink with metal shiny square buttons down the middle. the whole dress buttons up from the dress shirt collar to my knees its got a matching cloth belt that it came with and it looks like a giant cowgirl shirt to wear at the rodeo . it also has pockets ! i wear that dress with crazy scarves and crazy shoes so why not button earrings

  47. Cute!!! New follower here for ya. :D

    How great would these earrings be with my white & blue striped shirt and Stove Pipe jeans?!?!?! And the endless possibilities with shoes. Work, play, or both! And the fact that they are vintage buttons and made by a soon-to-be husband & wife team??? Even better!! :)

    Happy Tuesday!
