I was inspired by Elsie's post over at A beautiful Mess to share a few secrets! I think secrets are magical if they are not hurtful! ;)

1. I have ALWAYS wanted a Volkswagen beetle. I now own one! :)
2. I really don't LOVE red unless it is Valentine's day.
3. Not a fan of spicy anything.
4. I felt like I never fit in growing up in my small hometown.
5. I have always been proud of the fact that I was born in New Jersey.
6. has few "TRUE" friends... but the ones I have I LOVE dearly
7. plays with dolls! (Blythe dolls that is)
8. likes to spend money a little too much.
9. has a "crush" on a boy I once was good friends with(Yes I am married.. I said crush!)
10. sometimes is full of anxiety & can be very insecure!

Happy Sunday! If you would like to play along.. feel free! :)

Is it spring yet?????

I have been a bit MIA! I felt great yesterday then went to bed & woke up in the middle of the night with a sore throat!:( My face is still swollen..which makes it quite challenging to eat, so with that I have been just trying to take it easy!

I am soooo ready for spring! How about you???? I can't wait for bike rides, daisies & outdoor dinners. xo!

Whitney & her new glasses! ♥

I just got these ADORABLE glasses for Whitney on Etsy! I think they are the cutest.. I had to share! ;)

I am going to head to the shop in a bit. My face is pretty swollen.. and it is pretty uncomftorable but I feel good other than that! I plan on staying open 10-3 unless I start feeling bad again! Wish me luck! It is not fun having three chins & hardly being able to open my mouth! :(

Have a great day! xo!

My Etsy shop & Wisdom teeth...

I know.. totally random right??? Well I survived getting my wisdom teeth out & it was not so bad! I am a little sore today... but I feel really good! I took the day off from the shop to rest and ice my cheeks! ;) I guess I had the hiccups like mad after which is kind of funny & I called my Mom w/ a mouth full of gauze.. that must of made for an interesting conversation! Lol!

I will be back at the shop tomorrow 10-4 . I am trying to get lots done today.. I just posted lots of great new things in my Etsy shop including fancy headbands, clutches, granny purses & not to forget my new headbands for Blythe!

I have plans on keeping my shop full and hopefully if I can get caught up on skirts they will make an appearance soon too! To visit my Etsy shop click here or visit the side bar. :)

Hope your Tuesday is a great one! xoxo!

My new hobby! ♥

I could not stop making cute Blythe headbands last night. Most of them are made with vintage trims and buttons.. making them limited edition or even one of a kind! ;) I am sooo happy with them! I filled my Etsy shop up with cute Blythe headbands. They are ready to ship (overseas too)!

Have a great weekend!

I am getting my wisdom teeth out Monday so my Brick and Mortar shop will be closed Tuesday & possibly Wed.

Hair clip sale... All fabric button hair clips at my shop are $2.50ea. or 4/$10.00! They would make the sweetest of Valentine gifts. ;)

Thrifting.... ♥

I just ran to a thrift store this morning while on my way to the Vet or I should say after I stopped at the Vet. (to pick up Buster's pills .. our sweet boy(dog)has epilepsy! )

I scored BIG time.. I have been buying up dresses for early spring into spring/summer for a few line of vintage recreated clothing.. basically taking things in,shortening dresses, giving them a new adorable life & adding fun things like appliques! I have ALWAYS had a love for vintage & I am REALLY burnt out on my sewing. I think it is time to change things up! I think you all will approve! I have lots to do today but wanted to share a few really cute things I bought today! The three items including the doggy broach were under $3.00(even though 1 bowl says $3.99 it was in the $1.00 section)!! Love that when it happens!

Happy Monday!!! xo!
