Our Christmas Card

This is the first time we are sending a photo Christmas Card and it's also the first time my 6 yo son ever made a snowman. In fact, the last time he saw snow was when he was three and he really doesn't remember it. We moved to NC on his 4th birthday and there's no snow there!! LOL!! So, imagine his excitement when he woke up the other morning and there was snow on the ground!! "SNOW. Mama, it snowed!" he yelled from downstairs. Music to my ears!!

Feature Friday

It's time for word association. I'll start......

egg - scrambled
dinner - lunch
cold - snow
fire - hot

And when I say hot, I mean hot...especially when talking about today's featured Etsy shop...Tracy of PolishedTwo! Actually, to be completely honest, the first word that comes to mind when I look at her shop is HAPPY! Her designs are so bright, cheerful & colorful. Her pieces look almost effortless, like it is second to breathing to put these colors & beads together.

She certainly has a signature style and her pottery shards are no exception. They are beautiful ancient and replica Ming/Ching Dynasty shards that have beautiful images on them. She uses traditional Czech Republic glass beads to wood, brass, pewter, semiprecious stone, resin, porcelain, copper, and shell to re-iterate time after time her whimsical designs.

In addition to her jewelry (which includes EVERYTHING necklaces, earrings, bracelets & rings) she also makes bobby pins that are one-of-a-kind. These truly show her fun & whimsical style for sure!

From personal experience, Tracy is one of the most accommodating people you will meet. Treat yourself to some wonderful jewelry and swing by her shop. I'm sure you will pick up some great goodies as Christmas gifts (and I bet you'll end up getting something for yourself too!).

You are officially forewarned, anything you wear from PolishedTwo WILL be noticed and people WILL be stopping you to compliment your piece of jewelry. Happens to me all the time when I wear her Yarn Ball earrings (see picture above)!!

Wordless Wednesday, but it's Thursday??

Well, this just goes to show you how messed up with the days I am! I just posted this picture as my Wordless Wednesday. One problem...it's Thursday. This just means that I am behind on so many other things...what did I do yesterday? As my mother would say...Oi Vey!!

So, I'm just gonna throw caution to the wind and do my Wordless Wednesday anyway. Make a girl happy and just play along with me!!

Tuesday Treasure!

I consider myself a pretty crafty person. Jewelry, photography, glass and knitting are my specialties...so when I purchased my sewing machine a couple of years ago I thought "no sweat". I daydreamed about all the handbags, pillows, etc. I would be designing. I even bought books to guide me with designs. So, why is my sewing machine sitting on my bench collecting dust you ask? Because I couldn't even thread the sucker. I was/am a complete lost cause!!

However, Fashion Designer Mary Anne Lagana is not! Her style is fun, colorful and one of a kind. Her specialty is designing beautiful coats (great for this time of the year may I add). This one is my favorite. I love the animal print with the orange accent....very mod and fresh.

But, she doesn't only design coats. She has apparel for girls and women alike. Sweatshirts, long sleeve shirts, yoga tanks and skirts. They all display her creativity with mixing and matching vintage and textured fabrics. This cupcake sweatshirt is a perfect example - how cute!! Any young girl would think this is the best top ever.

And look at the pointed edge on this skirt...so flirty!

Stop by Mary Anne's Etsy shop and let her make a unique one-of-a-kind piece of clothing for you!
