So I'm opening a little shop on Etsy...

Truthfully my passion is selling essential oils because nothing thrills me more than to see people be healed through natural means ~ but, having said that, I still have an awful lot of creative bones that get the best of me at times!  I'm pretty certain I have been crafting since I learned to walk ((I know this because I see this in my Jules all the time!))

I'm putting my creative bones to work!

All pieces are handmade and all designs are made custom by ME!  I'm a lover of quotes and I create things that speak to me and are near and dear to my heart.

All of the jewelry is antique copper and pairs well with all things vintage!  I've collected lots of bronze and rust tone items from flea markets and yard sales that I like to mix with this jewelry collection and it all works together nicely ;)  

Sure, I'm sharing some pictures here, but there are more designs in the shop, and more designs in the works ---> so check the shop both now, and later!

And, while we are speaking of accessories ~

I'm also stocking some of these versatile burlap pins in the shop.  I love to add them to purses, bags, and hats!  Mostly I love that they are pins, so I can place them where I want and move them to whatever I want, based on my need {aka, mood}.

I trust you'll want to take a look in the SHOP, which officially opens for a quick sale ((just in time for Valentine's Day!)) on Monday, January 20th at 10am central time.  

Oh, and you might want to check out my dear friend The Barefoot Seamstress - she might just have a deal for you!

Thank you for supporting handmade, friends!

Big Girl Room

Since moving into the "old house" I have been collecting art for Sister-girl's "big girl room".  I'm not one to stress over when my kiddos give up the crib so in general I was in no rush but, as the collection was growing larger, so was my anticipation.  Each piece purchased so far has a memory or meaning behind it, and it is such an eclectic mix ~ but it is so incredibly SISTER-GIRL!  

I really adore her room.  It's complete enough for me to truly love spending time in there with her and yet it was designed so that we can continue to add to the collection, so the fun will continue!

The rug was my inspiration for the room ~ I loved the vibrancy (again, so true to this child!) and I R-E-A-L-L-Y loved the green.  You bet I was scared toting that rug into Lowe's and having them mix paint to match having never seen it painted before, but wow, I am so completely in love with it!

The headboard was a DIY by my Lifetime Love; an antique mantle with family history that we painted and filled with a fabric inset.

Sweet Sister-girl, what special memories adorn your wall!
