I was looking for the perfect gift to give to one of my girlfriends back at Christmas and I remembered these cute vintage necklaces made by Renee of Nostalgic Summer. Some of you may recall the Etsy Feature and giveaway I hosted back in November. While gathering info for that particular post, Renee made a real impression on me and I knew she was someone I wanted to keep in touch with. What stood out to me was her kindness, the care and detail she puts into her craft, her love of integrating old and new, and the story she has for each of her unique jewelry pieces.
While I was on summer break, I started thinking about new topics to write about for the blog. I began making a list of all the things that inspire me and I remembered some photos I kept of Renee’s workspace for creating her jewelry. One that stood out in particular to me was her inspiration board. My intention was to eventually share this photo along with other interesting boards I’ve gathered over the months. Instead, the thought went a bit further and led to the idea of starting a new series: Workspaces That Inspire. I think it’s only fitting that Renee’s space is the first I’m sharing with you.
