A New Favorite!

I found this etsy shop today, and I am so glad I did! These cuffs are super cool, and vintage-inspired! I was suppose to be shopping for x-mas gifts for my family, but I had to stop and buy one of these for myself! I purchased the Vintage Reindeer cuff, and I can't wait to wear it to our house x-mas party!! Buy one for someone you love, or buy one for yourself! But just buy one!!!!!

A few new treats to the shop!

I know Christmas gifts are on everyones' minds right now, but I have started making items not so holiday related but still just as cute. Here are a few of the newest items in store now!

A Vintage Christmas

Every year I look forward to the time when we put the Christmas tree and decorations up! This year we did it on November 13th! Early, yes but so worth it. Our whole family gets so much joy out of the decorations that I wish I could keep them up all year round.

I have been collecting ornaments for years now, and recently inherited a couple of boxes of vintage tree ornaments from my mom and my mother in-law. I love the shiney new ornaments as well, but there is something special about the old decorations you have enjoyed since your childhood.

Here are a few pictures of just some of the decorations we have put up this year! The last two photos are extra special vinatage ornaments from my mother in-law. A long time family friend made these ornaments by hand out of egg shells. They are tiny, delicate, and have amazing detail. We have 6 of these special ornaments, and each one is different.

Shoe Clips

I was contacted by a woman who asked me to custom make her a set of shoe clips. The idea is she would attach them to her ballet flats. I thought this was a brilliant idea, and immediately my mind was racing, and thinking of design ideas! Here is a picture of the clips I made. I used tiny, single prong alligator clips that can be used in the hair or on the shoes.

If I do decide to offer these in my shop, I would probably start offering them after the holidays, with some new Valentines Day and spring designs! P.S. the white specs are suppose to look like snow! LOL

Best Friends Forever!

Ok, I have added quite a few new items to the shop recently. But this one by far is my favorite! Its the Best Friends Forever Headband, and its adorable!

Halloween Fun!

Ok, my blog is feeling neglected these days! I have been too busy to write here, but I thought I would post a Halloween picture of my kids. My son who is 4 1/2 was Indiana Jones, and my daughter who is 10 months was a lion.
