i have a dream.


i would love to own a
sweet little boutique.
one that features all sorts of
wonderful handmade treasures!
and it would be great to run it
with my best friend Crystal...

maybe even have some sweet treats available too...

What is your dream?

too busy to slow down.


I have been so busy the last couple
of days filling orders..playing
outside with the kids...
& i love it!
But being so busy
makes it hard to do a post...
so for today...this is all I have for you:

wish i had one of these...and a minute to sit & enjoy it!

wednesday wish list.


I want these signs so much!!
I would hang them in my dining room & kitchen...

What are you wishing for today?

on my mind.


I have alot on my mind today...
things just floating around in there taking over...
the kind of things that make it hard to get anything done...

Among those things are:

I need the beach & the relaxation:

A Camera!
I need a new one so bad!
I use my Dad & Debbie's camera, it takes the best pics...
but they are on vacation...
i need my own.


My daughter's Phineas and Ferb Birthday Party
She asked for a Phineas & Ferb party this year!
There is not a lot of party stuff available...
I made these invitations using Picnik.

Filling orders...
I have a bunch of orders for my vintage garden markers!
and I have several orders for custom necklaces to finish...

As soon as my Dad & Debbie get back from their vacation to NYC I am going to have a bunch of new pictures & new items available in my etsy store!

What's on your mind today?

I Love Glee & Monday Mash-Up


I love Glee...LOVE IT! The show is amazing, plain and simple. Anyway if you watch the show you know what a mash up is...if not, it is bascially a couple songs "mashed" together and performed in an amazing GLEE-ful way.

On to my point....The Glee mash ups have inspired my new weekly feature post called Monday Mash Up.

I did something similar last week when I posted teal treasures....Monday Mash Up will be just like that, a mash up of some of my favorite things on etsy!

So without further ado....I present the very first...

Monday Mash Up:
It's Good to be Green
item locations: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

Hope you liked the new weekly feature,
Monday Mash Up!

***If you have a color or theme suggestion please
feel free to let me know by commenting or emailing me

& your idea could be the next Monday Mash Up!***

my daughter got a book at the library about
a ballerina & now it is all she talks about.
she wants to be a ballerina...and she practices all day! :)

i never wanted to be a ballerina when i was little...
i was a tomboy who was very into sports.
but i am thinking of taking her to dance classes...
she will love it.

besides...who can resist a little pink tutu?

The Lovely Blogger List.


I love reading other blogs & am frequently inspired by them! The other day I came across The Lovely Blogger List created by Lovely Clusters. I think it's a great idea and I am very excited to be a part of it & be able to meet other lovely bloggers! All you have to do to join the list is submit your blog/shop and do a post answering a few questions about yourself. Here it goes:

My name is Jessica & I am married to Brooks and we have two wonderful children, Brooklyn & Lofton. I have lived in Ohio all my life but very much wish to own a rustic little beach cottage some day! I work {very} part time & stay at home with my kids.

I wanted a creative outlet & decided to start my own etsy shop creating hand stamped jewelry. I also love being outdoor & being in my flower beds so I also do a few gardening pieces as well!

I am inspired by a lot of things...lately it is nature & old vintage things! I love looking through pictures at weheartit inspiration is abundant there! I also follow many other very creative blogs that inspire me daily!

you can find my designs at my etsy shop.
