What I am wearing.. my new lemon yellow skirt & red lipstick!

Happy Monday everyone!

I thought it would be fun to do a what I am wearing post. I received a few compliments on my outfit today & I get asked all the time about my style! It's truly flattering.. I have kind of always been an odd duck! Lol! I never have really dressed like anyone else! ;)

Here is what I am wearing today..

I just bought this cute lemon yellow high waisted pencil skirt at Anthropologie in Madison. My top is a thrifted Lands End 3/4 sleeve tee that I have had forever, boots target & tights Anthropologie. I don't wear much makeup but I do LOVE red lipstick & I treated myself to a new red lipstick, it's "red revival" by Maybelline & I love it!

I love mixing colors & patterns. Yes.. I have been known to not match my clothes! ;)

I think adding a bright colored skirt, top or even scarf is a great way to brighten up your winter wardrobe!

The shop is open 10-6 today! This is the last week for winter goods then onto spring! I just hope that the weather cooperates!

Wednesday night is craft night from 4-7pm. Come & make decoupage tile coasters with us! $5 per coaster!

Have a great day! xo!

Today all vintage clothing & shoes are 30% off! I will slowly be adding spring inventory handmade & vintage!

Words to live by....

Words to live by...

(photos via pinterest)

The last month & a half has been a bit of a challenge for me, while I am sooo thankful for my new shop & all the new people that have popped into my life. I feel so blessed!
The truth is I am a newly single Mom of 2 that works all the time & is passionate about everything I do. I am struggling to find my way in the world right now & at 36 I am starting over.
I try to keep this blog mostly business(shop)orientated but sometimes I think it's important to share my struggles!
My look on life has changed! I am so thankful for my friends who make me laugh & let me vent when needed... I am so thankful for my two AMAZING kids, really you have no idea how strong they are & most days are telling me that everything is going to be ok at 8 & 12 yrs of age.
I don't have the answers to everything, I can be a bit short tempered, take things too personally.. but my goal is to be a positive,self confindent, hardworking single Mom of 2 & a rolemodel to anyone that wants to make their dreams come true! Believe me THEY will come true if you put your heart & soul into it.

This is me right now... xo!

Happy Valentines day!! Here's a little DIY for you! xoxo!

Happy Valentine's day everyone!! I think I have mentioned before (haha) that I looove Valentine's day.. I love all things pink, red & hearts! What is not to love?

I saw this little diy on Pinterest awhile ago & I knew I had to find the perfect dress to alter! My bff & I were out thrifting on Sunday when I found this ADORABLE dress. It started it's life long... but I shortened it, cut out the heart in the bodice & stitched a simple stitch to keep it from fraying. You can use fray check too.. but I wanted mine to look a little raw at the edges!

I loooove the way it turned out!

I also am sporting one of my glass glitter pink heart hair pins, which I have at my shop & are 30% off today!!

The shop is open til' 8:30pm tonight for the 9th annual Death by Chocolate event in downtown Appleton! We have a voting box so stop on down & cast your votes! All Valentines accessories are 30% off today including heart soaps!

p.s. If you need further directions for the diy, the original post can be found on (click on the blog link)

Have a great day!!! xoxo!

Craft night & a peek at my craft room!

Tonight is our very first craft night at my new shop! I thought I would give you a little peek into our craft room at the shop!

I kept the room light & airy painting all the walls white, adding a few simple details like the paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling as well as the vintage wallpaper which is hiding an old window that I will be adding shelves to for craft supplies soon!

I also LOVE love holidays.. so I plan on changing out the table cloths often! Here is a peek at my version of the craft we are making tonight! Stop by anytime from 4-7pm to make your own Valentine's! I have supplies for all ages.. it is first come first serve & while supplies last! This is our first night so I am not sure what to expect!
