Wipe Yo Mouth

Added some great cloth napkins to my shop this week
3 different sets, In love with these Shabby Chic ones 
Great set of 12 Napkins

Another Favorite are these bright colored set of 4 Cloth Napkins
I appliqued these with funky fabrics to create little houses
These remind me of the islands with all of the different brightly colored houses 

They go nicely with my fiesta ware don't they ?

I also have these lovely repurposed napkins in the shop
Set of 8 made from a vintage sheet, Don't worry it was a new sheet

Sea Glass Obsession

Hey there, so excited to share this post with you
One of my greatest treasures is my Sea Glass Collection
I am Obsessed with it., You know it's one of the things 
I'd probably grab in a fire lol

Most of my collection is from a sweet spot in Maryland
I have a few pieces from here in NC & a few treasures from a yard sale 

Well anyway I decided instead of keeping it all in the jar
I would look into finding a better way to enjoy it
I came across this clear fillable locket and an idea was born
Looks like a retro pocket watch, I picked thru my pieces and pulled out a few favorites and wa-la a cool jewelry piece was born

These make great pieces to hold other stuff too like shark teeth, shells,etc

I am going to be offering a few for sale in shop soon
Yes believe it or not I am a sharing a few pieces

2 of my favorite Sea Glass Reads 

Here's a few photos of one of my favorite beaches near my home town
I have found some great Sea Glass here , often a hit or miss thou

Old Ferry Dock = lots of treasures 

2 lavender pieces 

Love these, great textures 

X Marks the spot 

One of my favorites, this gem stuck out on the beach 

If you would like your own locket to fill with your own treasures or would like one I have made up with some of my finds email me at for more details
hoping to share a few pieces that I will have for sale soon

Smoothie Stealer

Greetings Just a little random post today

Hope everyone is getting ready for a great Memorial Day Weekend
I am looking forward to it, no real plans 
Just excited to spend some time with my Dad as 
he will be coming into town for the weekend.
Hoping to celebrate his past birthday & pre fathers day with him

What have we been up to lately you ask well
We've been spending our time playing outside enjoying the warm temps
playing with neighbors and checking on our tadpoles we transplanted into our ditch from another ditch in the neighborhood
We like to hit up the local farmers market on wednesdays
and visit the library once a week
We have a good little routine going

Look at this Mug Shot
Wanted: Smoothie Stealer lol
He loves a Strawberry Banana Smoothie or any smoothie for that matter
He hears the blender start up and he takes off running for it
jumping up & down till he gets some

Don't leave yours on a table within reaching distance cause it will be gone

How could you ever get mad at this little guy
He may be ornery but he sure is cute

HAPPY Monday!! 
Added a couple newbies to the shop this weekend
These 2 are so unique and are special in their own way

First up is Omar ain't he a cutie
Love the bright colors, they really make it stand out
It's a cute little framed Needlepoint that would be
great hanging in a nursery or a kids room 

Spray paint the frame an orange or yellow for an additional pop of color

Check it out in the shop here 

The second new guy is this awesome Milk Glass Sconce

How pretty is this, imagine doing some bedroom time reading under this 
It's a Great piece for any room actually

Hook this lamp up with a homemade burlap shade and 
bam you have a perfect treasure

I am in love with Hobnail, and the detail on this lamp is great
I love that the wall disc has a trim to match the hobnail
