New items in the shop....

I am so sorry I haven't been blogging very much!! I wish I could do it more often! But with an energetic 3 year old little boy, there just isn't much time for it! I will try my best, though!
I have managed to list a few new items!

These deer would make a perfect holiday centerpiece!

I left these cake stands neutral, so you can decorate them according to the season or event!

Wouldn't this one look cute with some ribbons tied around the dome for a baby or bridal shower? :)

CSN Review Coming Soon

Yipee!!! I am doing CSN (CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find anything you need whether it be a stylish handbag, a chic bar stool or even cute cookware!) review soon! I am so excited!!!

My daughter Zoe tagged me. Sorry I took forever to answer sweetie! : )

My questions:

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it? 
I would definitely pay off my house and car,  save a bunch for my daughters dream weddings and something cool for my little boy,  then go on a shopping spree with my husband and 3 kids. We have never done that!
If you could pick your name, what name would you choose for yourself?
If you were to take a vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go?
If you had all of the crafting supplies in the world, what would you make?
I would let my very talented girls make whatever they wanted,  then they could sell the things they made. : )
What is your pet's name?
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Chocolatey chocolate!
What is your favorite sport?
Ooh,  I'm not athletic- and I've never really understood sports.
What is your favorite kind of M&M's?
Plain M&M's or Coconut are my favorites!

Shabby Chic Cake Stand Tutorial

I absolutely love cake stands! I have been looking for inexpensive parts so I could make one... I found a cheese dome and candle stick at my local thrift store a grand total of $2.50.  They will be the perfect pieces for my upcycled cake stand! I can't wait... : )

Here is your ordinary cheese dome.

Pretty boring.

Add a candle holder, and it starts to get a little more interesting...
I super glued the two together.

That was easy!

Now for some white paint.

Aaah! Everything looks better in white! I added a piece of wood to the base, so it wouldn't be too top heavy. (I just had this piece of wood lying around,  and wanted to use it for something : ) )

I super glued the piece of wood to the base,  and here it is...In all of it's beauty!

I love it! Don't you?

I made a little pink one too...
I found another cheese dome exactly like the first!
At the SAME thrift shop - a month later!
What are the odds?

Isn't it cute? I LOVE it! I sold it on ETSY.  Hated to part with that one...

I've Changed My BLOG!

My oldest daughter Paige has a beautiful ETSY store!  Actually,  she has a few... I am always amazed by her many talents. She is the reason I have a blog makeover. She designed it and redesigned it for me!  She is always learning new things. She left me in the dust a long time ago.
She just launched a new FALL line of clothing in her shop. You've got to check it out!
And of course, her blog is beautiful too! She is trying to teach me some of the wonderful things she's learned. I'm taking baby steps,  so bear with me...  At least I made it this far : )

Here are some of her beautiful shirts...

Womens Beige and Light Brown T Shirt Sz Medium- $32.95

(Momma needs one of these...)

Isn't this lovely!

Collage of Frames...

I sell lots of vintage frames on ETSY,  but it never occurred to me that I needed to put some of them on MY walls!  Until today...
