New Spring Fabrics!

Hello out there...ere....ere....So, it's the dead of winter and yet I am BUSY thinking about Spring! What will the latest and greatest fabrics be?? What will be the fresh color combinations?? I, of course, LOVE pink and green so I will be featuring A LOT of those two colors! Black, white and brown are always favorites - every season. So, I am looking at a swirl print black and white, a zebra print and some floral. Just picked out some kicking madras prints - what's summer without madras?? Looking into some great damask also - a little chocolate and brown and maybe a little lime green and brown. I will be sure to load the pics as soon as I get them! See ya soon!

Quote of the Week!

So the other day there was a fire incident at our neighbor's house. No major damage or injuries! There were 2 fire trucks and several ambulances and police vehicles. That night our water was very cloudy/dirty from the main tap for the hose and our kids couldn't take a bath. Now the quote is coming! A few days later, we were at my husband's office 30 miles from home. My 3 year old son heard a siren pass by on the street and said.......

"Mommy, I guess we won't be able to take a bath tonight! The water will be too dirty!"

ahhhhh....from the mouth's of babes!

Men - Pop the Question with a HANDBAG??

Yeah, I thought it was a little crazy myself until I read this! It really is a GREAT and UNIQUE idea -

"Pop the question with a handbag! Why not hide your extra-special engagement ring inside an extra-special purse? Wrap the purse as a gift, then hang a bell inside the purse to make sure she opens it right away. Then, ta-da! Opening the purse is sure to surprise your bride-to-be. And, as special bonus and reminder of a thoughtfully planned out engagement night, your fiancee will be able to use the purse for years to come."

Quote/Information from -

Take a look at - the French Kiss Clutch (name says it all) or the Sugar Pie Clutch may just do the trick!!! Happy Holidays lovebirds!

Quote of the Week!

Stress at this time of year can really get us down, make us sick and just plain unhappy!!

Here are some sage words of advice"

"Stress is basically a disconnection from the earth, a forgetting of the breath. Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important. Just lie down."

Christmas - Here it Comes!!

So, I am quickly realizing that there are only 21 days left until the BIG DAY!! I have soooo many people to shop for!! Tomorrow is my big Etsy Shopping day. I plan on buying as many handmade items that I can. Trying to keep it in the US and support my fellow crafters/artisans. I know that I am going to buy a certain man in my life a cool cribbage board. Haven't played before but he likes it and I like to learn something new! I am pretty sure that it was made from a vintage cuban cigar box so that alone is totally cool!

My Favorite Purse Picture!

I am so happy with myself for taking this picture! I LOVE to take pictures - I just wish I had more training - so I self teach or experiment I guess. I took this one in my backyard laying down on the grass. My kids were asleep so noone was around to jump on me!! I also used the color accent button on my camera - it gives the purses a cool color. I love it!!
