My daughter will be turning age four soon and I think she gets more girly and more girly every day.  Because she loves dressing up with skirts and dresses and shoes, it gets a little expensive.  I always try to find ways to save a little money here and there.  The other day, I went […]

Recycled Vintage Jewelry Inspiration

I love going to vintage flea markets. I am so attracted to the booths with vintage jewelry and embellishments. In the past I have attempted to upcycle my own jewelry but for some reason, I am horrible at it! My pieces always fall apart.  I really should take a class. This, however, doesn’t stop me […]

I believe I started a new craft addiction. Um yeah… that would be hair accessories.  They are so easy to make and take minutes.  I think I decided that I liked them once I started getting compliments when I wore them out.  So, today I decided to share another DIY fabric flower barrette. It all […]

I have been brainstorming some ideas for a baby shower that I am helping with.  The Mommy-to-be requested a vintage inspired shower with lots of lace and burlap.  She is not giving away the gender, so she wants neutral colors or both blue and pink and other pastels. I decided to try and make a […]

Branchen Out

Nancy Nelson Jewelry I can’t stop. I think I have visited every page… twice.  Nancy Nelson Jewelry is so elegant and timeless and feminine.  My eyes hurt from staring and perusing each piece.  I’ll admit I don’t accessorize as much as I used to since having a baby.  They like to pull things.  But, I’m […]
