Mariah Golden Palmer is the creator of Everything Golden, a blog about independently crafted style, design, art, wild places and animals, and anything that inspires. A nature lover to the core, she’s happy at home in Bozeman, Montana, with her laser physicist husband and a smarty-pants border collie. Check out her blog for more style inspiration, DIY art and craft projects, and other creative wanderings.

I am constantly searching for beautiful, functional things. To me, beauty is deeper than simply a visual quality — it comes from history and creative process. Whether it is a serendipitous vintage find that allows me to imagine another time and space, or a treasure created by a soulful maker with a story I connect to and am inspired by, here is where the joy lies. The endless discoveries of vintage gems and independent makers is what makes Etsy one of my greatest loves.

I’ve compiled some looks with this inspiration and philosophy in mind.

[1. Tank from barkdecor; 2. Necklace from BoutiqueMinimaliste; 3. Skirt from MardyStark; 4. Boots from VintageUrbanRenewal; 5. Scarf from russkk; 6. Hat from RabbitHouseVintage; 7. Blazer from mituvintage; 8. Bag from 86Vintage.]

A classic, vintage black blazer is a great staple; add artsy elements and earthy textures for extra personality.

Furniture made with integrity, by real craftspeople, allows you to feel proud of your purchase. Thoughtfully select vintage accessories and handmade goods that really speak to you, and your home evolves into a beautiful expression of yourself and your family.

    Thank you for sharing finds that show such a deep respect for the past and for nature, as well. I am fascinated by the thread that weaves its way through time and through objects--objects that were once loved and valued by someone before us, creating a deep connection to us. So often these days, such items are discarded because they don't "fit in" with a certain lifestyle, a certain look or a certain image we wish to project to others. You, however, obviously appreciate this connectedness. Thank you so much!

    Lovely picks. Your collection reminds me of a walk on a beach in uncharted territory. You never know what you're going to come across!
