pretty daisy cuffs & pony tail holders!

I have been working on lots of new things! Sorry for the bad pics.. but my camera cord is missing & well it is just time for a new camera. My battery case has been broken & the camera I have been using just sucks the life out of batteries anyhow... so I have been taking pics with my phone. ;)

Here are a few new cuffs that I made using vintage daisy trims..

The yellow & white is actually a reproduction trim but still sooo cute!

& I finally got around to restocking pony tail holders! It is that time of year.. they are great for pulling your hair back & just add a touch of cuteness!

My shop is open 10-5 today & with the heat tomorrow I will only be open 12-5! The shop just gets sooo much sun & it is a little warm in the mornings!

Stop on down & see all of my new goodies!
Have a great day!

Happy Father's day!!!

I wanted to send out a special little "Happy Father's day" to my husband Jake. He really is the BEST Dad! He does so much for me & the kids! I am really lucky to have him in my life.
I am feeling a bit sappy.. mostly because he has been gone all week with work. He comes home tonight! Yay!

(this photo is from last summer at his Grandparents trailer in Chetek.. we didn't get to go this year but it is one of our very favorite places to go!)

I also have been thinking about my Dad alot too. He is exactly 30 yrs older then me.. haha that is how I remember his age. He was recently diagnosed with diabetes & I am just so proud of my Dad! He has changed his diet & watches what he eats as well as his blood sugar! I love you Dad! You are the greatest! You not only lived in Philly (& growing up in New Jersey) which makes anyone cool in my book you taught us (me & my sisters) to be who we are! I am soo glad you are my Dad!

Have a Happy Father's day!

Bedroom makeover!

If you remember awhile ago I did a bedroom makeover inspiration post. My bedroom was in major need of a makeover. I finally took some pics. My bedroom is the darkest room in the house & is hard to photograph because it is pretty small.

I am sooo happy with how it turned out! My husband even likes it. It finally feels like it fits the look of the rest of our house.

I started a vintage crewel collection.. these are just a few that I have found at local thrift stores all under $2. & my deer that I bought from the super talented Katie of skunkboy creatures! It was an early birthday present for me & I love it sooo much! :)

I bought this tapestry for our bed last year at urban outfitters & despite its not so good reviews. I have loved it & it washes really well. My dogs did happen to tear it recently but I think some cute handsewn patches will do the job! :)
The pillow is a brown vintage velvet that I found at my favorite antique mall.

This is a fun diplay piece I had at my shop.. but decided to use it at home. I purchased it at U.O. It holds all of my owl necklaces as well as some I made for myself.

I love this antique dresser & the how the wood tones pop with the new color! The dresser was a gift from my mother n law when she moved to Utah!

and the awful AWFUL before pic. It was a dreary rainy day so this photo is pretty bad but you get the idea right?

I am soo happy with the way this room turned out. I also have a huge armoir on the other side of the room with vintage suitcases on top but I couldn't get a good pic. of it. It is too big! :)

p.s. I get the keys to my new shop/studio today! Eeeek I can't wait!

Have a great day!
