Summer fun!

Just checking in after a crazy busy weekend! Thank you EVERYONE who purchased some dainty daisies goods at the Appleton farmer's market this past weekend! :) I will be there this Saturday (keep in mind my booth with be in a different spot each week)

The kids and I rediscovered SouthPark today! Our city goverment is a little backwards in most cases, but I have to say the Parks depart. does a wonderful job with our city parks! We have some of the neatest parks around included Pollock pool which is about 3 blocks from my home!
South park is nice with a little creek and shade trees... this sweet park has a nice playground and the water splash pad. It was fun and free. :) We packed a picnic and relaxed.
I am off ot get my hair cut then back to work to restock for the shop & market.

Happy Monday!

A little magic anyone ???

I have promised the kids that Mondays would be a fun day... (our day off from the shop) and we would try to something different every Monday for the summer. Yesterday we went to the Houdini museum in downtown Appleton. It was pretty cool, lots of hands on for a museum. The kids even got to perform their very own magic show! They don't allow cameras in the museum so this is the best we got. It was a beautiful day! My kids are really into magic lately *thanks to a special Grandpa with the gift of magic thumbs!* Lol! I only wish I new some magic to get my sewing done.. I have about 8 skirts I would like to finish this week! Yikes! :)

Have a great week!

Racing Sausages on Sunday...

We had a great time at the Brewer'S game! (My husband is a HUUUUGE fan) It was polish sausage bobble head day and of course my husband being polish ... we had to go! ;) The brewer's won 7 - 3 woohoo! We made it out after the pouring rain.. Thanks to Sunday games where kids get to run the bases! It was dry most of the way home it seemed to me we were dodging storms all day! Whew.. we are lucky! Here is a pic. we got of the kids & sausages on our way into Miller park after some drunk ladies were hogging them! ;( It was a great day.. long but great, I am a bit tired. We woke up to a beautiful day outside. I am drinking my coffee and then off to run errands and just hang out with my kids!

Have a great Monday! :)

A few new hair clips....

I found some time today to take a few new pics of some of the hair clips I have been making! I added a few to my etsy shop with a few more on the way. What a week it has been LOOOONG... and frustrating! Someone decided to literally trash our shop stoop and then leave some foul language in permanent marker on our building.. luckily on the painted part & our landlord is out of town! I went and bought some paint and will be fixin' that in the AM. I am tired out.. and off to bed. I am hoping to whip up some new skirts soon! My sewing machine is still in need of service, but I am told there is a 3 week waiting list! Uuggh!

Have a great weekend!

The Glitter Workshop...

I will be featuring some of the artists that consighn with us at the store. We are so lucky to be able to work with so many talented (mostly) young women! This week I am featuring our newest consighner Naomi of Madison's Glitter workshop. I have been a fan of her work for a few years now, coming across her blog while doing a search engine for DIY a few years ago. In the past year I have been honored to have a vendor space at *The Craftacular* (check out her site for more info on this summers upcoming craftacular) a craft show that Noami has organized. I have to say it is the coolest craft show around, I have met many amazingly talented and lovely people there!
I really think it may be the love of gnomes we share that draws me to Naomi's work, but how can you help but love all this cute handmade goodness from hair accessories, earrings,story book bracelets and scrap critters! Not to mention the coolest coasters and sooo much more! Here are just a few things available at the shop! Be sure to check out her blog here!

On another note.. I know I don't talk about my hubby to much! He is soooo supportive of what I do,He is the best Dad to our two kids and a great husband.He truly is the love of my life! We have been married almost 9 years thru good and bad, he is and always will be my person to go to and lean on he truly is my best friend!

State of Emergency......

The city of Oshkosh just declared a state of emergency. The whole city is a mess 50-75% of our roads are flooded quite a few in our very own neighborhood. We have been lucky so far just this mess in our backyard. I will keep you posted! The whole state of Wisconsin is being hit hard with heavy rains and tornadoes... My Dad just told me my sister was stuck on The Baraboo hills (south of The Wisconsin Dells) trying to get home in pretty much a mudslide for 3 hours! Keep us all in your prayers everyone will need it! This is the scene around here! (I took this picture from my back door)

I ♥ Gnomes!

We survived the weekend. Wow!! What a weekend it was! First off Saturday was extra busy at the shop and sold a ton of skirts. (Thank you everyone!) and it also happened to be Gallery walk night. We had a ton of crazy storms headed our way and our feature artist and her husband were driving up from Madison! To say the least the night was great... a few crazy down pours and some lightning.. but NO tornadoes(Thank goodness!) It ended up to be a great Gallery walk! We also will now be carrying goods by Glitter worskhop. I am very excited, I have been a huge fan of Naomi's work for awhile now! I also made a sweet trade with her. I purchased two of the coasters on her etsy shop and the rest was a trade for one of my Aline skirts,.. which looked adorable on her! Thank you to Naomi and Jerome for making the crazy trip up to Oshkosh to hang out with us!

Happy Monday!

The perfect weekend....

We had such a great weekend! Jada did great at her recital and even made it in the paper (they took a picture of them at rehearsal.. what could be cooler for an 8 year old) She also had her 2cd softball game. She has graduated from T-ball to Pony league this year! Cool stuff! I am so proud of her!

Jake took the kids fishing and I enjoyed a local flea market that I am so excited about! I even saw my friend Tammy and of course I love her style so most of my money was spent at her booth! I will have to share my goodies soon!

My serger is a bit on the fritz so I m not sure how much sewing I will get done. I do have some new projects I am hoping to work on! :)

Happy Monday!
