Yes, Please

Officially, after seeing this site, I need a statement necklace. Dolores Petunia makes beautiful pieces and will make custom pieces out of old or broken jewelry that you have. So if you have pieces that you love but are broken consider having them remade into on of these statement pieces.

I love the old clock in this one.

It's like paisley in necklace form....Amazing.

Pretty and sparkley. Since I have so much green and blue this is perfect.

Bright, beautiful, fabulous.


Some featured one of my headbands in their treasury list. Check it out. I am so excited to be included in this list. I never guessed anyone would pick something of mine to be featured. All of the headbands are listed on my pages now and I will be working on ponytail holders later this morning.

Sneak Peak

I am giving you a super secret sneak peak (say that 5 times fast!!) of the things I will be posting after work today on my etsy..... Headbands and ponytail holders (or hair pretties as Gabbie calls them). Personally, I think that adults can wear them as well as little kids. I wore one to church the other day. They are felt, fabric and buttons and super colorful.

This one has a little bit of brown in the fabric as well as the pinks.

I love orange and blue together. What do you think?

And who can so no to pink and green?

I have about 20 to post tonight so stop check them out.

I got a chance to post all the greeting cards on my Etsy that I made for the craft show. Just in time for Mother's day no less.

All Cards are blank inside so you can use them for anything you want

Perfect for a birthday or to give to someone you like enough to call "cupcake"

Pretty polka dots.

I made a bunch of flower cards but this one is my favorite.

We all know I love owls. Isnt' he so cute?

Craft show part 2

The craft show was a bit of a let down for all the vendors. It coincided with a 5K and most of the runners were not in the mood for shopping after and as the roads around the park were closed to traffic for the race there weren't many people who stopped by that weren't runners. All in all we had a nice time sitting and chatting most of the day. Also it was a good experience. We will have to think hard about whether to do it next year or not. But the craft shows failure means only good things for you as I will be posting all my items that I made on my etsy site this week and will let you know about all of them. Expect to see cards, headbands, ponytail holders, more keychains, pin cushions and button necklace pendants. Here are a few shots of our booth to get you excited.

At our stand, ready to start the day. Pretty chipper considering we got up at 5 am to be there for set up at 6.

We mixed all our stuff together and got a very colorful booth.

One of the pretty shirts by Fybster.
I thought our booth looked really great. It was super colorful and if I was at a craft show I would want to see what was going on.

I love going to antique stores. Wondering through aisle after aisle of the past. Each thing was once brand new to someone else. I wonder about the story behind things. But sometimes I need a specific thing (like a doorknob or hinges to match my other doors) and I don't feel like wondering for hours. Historic House Parts is the perfect site for those days.

I want to replace my current front door with this lovely.

My mom would love this wrought iron for her garden.

I have a few antique grates in my house. One by my front door is pretty plain. I would like this one to replace it. Isn't it beautiful.

MMMM....leaded glass. So pretty.

This is the perfect light for my foyer, or our new bathroom or just about anywhere. I love it so much.

Egg Art

I wish I had the patient and steady hand of artist Frances Grom. He drills thousands of tiny holes in eggs to create unique Easter Eggs. Aren't they beautiful. I would be afraid to even hold one because I would probably crush it.

Busy Bee

I am going to be super busy this week preparing for my second craft show with my friend CDB. I am so excited but I still have a ton to do. I will give a sneak peak of what I will be selling later in the week and all the info for you if you want to come.

Totally switching subjects...

Growing up I had the smallest room known to man. And I am not just being silly. The people who moved in after our family turned it into a walk in closet. My grandfather built me an elevated bed which pretty much doubled the floor space. If I hadn't had that I would have wanted a loft bed from Tumidei. These would also have been amazing in my tiny little dorm room.

This is probably the one that would have fit in the space the easiest. It would have been wall to wall loft though. I really think this is amazing.

Make a shared bedroom 2 times bigger.

Perfect for a single child who likes to have sleep overs.

Is that the Sun?

It is finally sunny after days of rain (it's bring the May flowers I hear). The warmer it is the more I am thinking of cute dresses and skirts. To complement them I will need some cute summer purses. Check out Jennifer Ladd's collection and you will find a bag for sure.
Is that a felt flower I see? I LOVE felt.

This is just too cute.

Vespa's on a purse? What could be better?

This is my favorite by far. I adore the color combo and it would go with so much fo my summer clothes.

The perfect gift for my brother's girlfriend. Don't look at this V cause I might have to get it for you.

For the Man in your life

I like to see hubby dressed up. Doesn't happen often but it's always nice when it does. I love getting him new ties for those times. The ties on Toybreaker are so unique and I want to get one for him.

A sneaky way to get my husband to wear a cute little bird.
From a distance this looks like a cool pattern but close up you realize it's part of an engine.



They also do really great sets for weddings. Here the grooms tie is white, the best man dark blue and the rest of the groomsmen lighter blue. Such a great idea.
