My new happy....

My sweet momma was super sneaky and found me an early birthday present via my blog post on Favorite Etsy Bird Jewelry.

This is my newest piece of jewelry...isn't it wonderful?

Live Outside the Cage by Chocolate and Steel

It was packaged beautiful and was a wonderful surprise.

Thanks momma and daddy bob - for my sweet treat! LOVE YOU BUNCHES!

Upcycled

So when my dear friend Lynda of Another Sassy! Product stumbled upon these old shirts at a used uniform sale - she brought them home and didn't know what to do with them. My first thought - use the cuffs of the sleeves...for cuffs!!! So here are the first 3 I made yesterday - I really love them and I am excited to give a new use to old shirts...now I want to go thrift store shopping for old shirts! This could get crazy! But oh so fun! I will add these soon to my online shop - and many more to come!

Flower Garden

My friend Nicole from Tangerinas asked me to make a few flowers for her hair - and I am so glad she did because I believe I made some cute new little flowers perfect for a little color in your world. Take a peak. I will be adding them to etsy soon!

What a weekend

Well it was a great weekend with the company we had (best friends from asheville and one of my best friends from college and her husband) - then Saturday night took a turn for the worst when I was gazing at the sunset coming down the steps of a local restaurant and twisted the %$&* out of my right foot - the one I have broken before. So we get ice at the restaurant and some chairs to sit in and prop my foot up - then as I am in horrible pain I look up and see my customer/friend Kelly who is a doctor and her husband who is also a doctor. Can we say perfect timing? So they check it out and tell me that it should be fine - just take care of it oh and have a drink or two :). And then Kelly said she would come by the next morning and check it out. How awesome is that?

So it is doing okay - I can walk around - it just isn't pretty :) So I am a little laid up - but I will be fine.

But I thought I would add a pic of me laid up with my two fur babies taking care of me :)

My new little dwelling...

So remember this that I bought from Jessica Jane:


well she just opened another shop called Petite House with the cutest little dwellings. And I just had to buy one - and was so excited when she told me that it was actually the first little dwelling she made. Lucky me - I can't wait to get it in the mail!

My Nephew Rigby is turning 5

This is so hard to believe because I swear he was just a baby. But it is true, he is turning 5 and I was lucky enough to make his birthday invites and wanted to share them with you! And it was so awesome that Rigby got to be a part of the invitation process by stamping his hand on each invitation to represent his 5 years.








and just so you can see what my sweet little rigby looks like - here is a little photo for you:

A new discovery

Yesterday I stumbled upon Jessica Jane's etsy shop through The Constant Gatherer's blog that I found through @ Home's blog. Was that confusing enough? Anyway here are some of my favorites from Jessica Jane:




and then here is my new brooch I bought just for me :) I am so ready for fall weather, fun jackets and cozy sweaters and I thought this brooch would be a great new addition to my fall wardrobe.



aren't they just magical! Thought I would share! Happy Sunday! xoxo
