Pretty Flowers

So since I forgot to email home my Valentine's flowers here they are now, they are super pretty. I normally always get red roses, and although I have nothing against red roses, I do prefer a more colorful lot. So this year OH surprised me completely.

Here are some closup's of my pretties, which I way dead at this point so I have them on my computer.

Other than that still trying to fight whatever it is I have and stay warm. It is so cold again. I don't think I am going to make it to spring. Also I have to share some of my swaps I have received some of the coolest stuff and I just need to take some photos. Seems to be the story of my life huh. Until then.

OWOH Winner

We have a winner, Margo from Margos Memories Musings. So Margo please send me an email and these pretties are on the way to you!

In other news, Happy Belated Valentines, I took some pics of the lovely flowers I received and then forgot to email them home. Oops, i took them at work with the super cool new camera. Oh well what to do, other than that I was off to the doctors today I haven't been feeling well I wasn't sure what was wrong and get this I have an infection in my lymph node? So hopefully after a few days on antibiotics my neck will not be swollen and my ear won't feel like it is an elephant. Totally not fun, but way better than the flu.

Anyways I am still in resting mode, so I will be back tommorrow hopefully with something exciting right now I just want to hibernate and eat a lot ice cream. What ice cream is good for a sore throat don't ya think. There are no calories in that ice cream, no sir! until then

PS Margo I couldn't find an email so I left a comment on your blog!

One World-One Heart

I just came across this tonight and I thought it was such a fabulous idea I am jumping on board. What is One World-one Heart, well started this in 2007 to help bring new and old bloggers together. A way to meet new friends and to help others as they get started. Currently there are over 350 participants. So in good nature I will be giving a way one of my staple items perfect for Valentines.
The rhinestone Glamour Bobby Pins. so leave a comment and go check out all of the other Bloggers out there, see the side bar for them. I will draw a name on February 14th. Please make sure you leave some way for me to contact you!

This is what Lisa had to say about her project of bringing bloggers together, "This is more than wanting to win something.......that is only the the end it's about finding kindred spirits. Someone may be fairly new to blogging, not sure how to navigate, find others and have others find them....Some are long time bloggers and in some cases well known in the art community. Whatever the case it brings all of them together. This is an INTERNATIONAL event that has and had participants from the US, Canada, France, Sweden, Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, Ireland, England,Wales and more. It transcends geographical location, socio economics, political affiliation, religious's a coming together like the giant community we are on this planet. If only it took a simple giveaway to create PEACE everywhere, in the mean time here we give from our hearts. What more could I ask for, my little idea has surpassed my wildest dreams of what it could become. This year I created this blog especially for OWOH - it will remain up all year and beyond.
My heartfelt thanks go out to all who chose to board the Love Train.
XOXO." So thank you Lisa I think this is such a fabulous idea!

I have been missing in action lately. I have been busting my but trying to set up some new boutiques this year, uploading to Etsy, just plain busy. So I apologize for the missing part I have a ton to share with you guys. I have decided to open another Etsy shop you can check it out. It's still vintage recreations, but at another listing, Vintage Nouveau Design. I have been thinking about it for awhile now and decided to just jump on it. this site will be hosting all of my jewelry. The old site will host all of the vintage findings, flowers, cabs, & other vintage stuff. It was just getting way to unorganized and I couldn't take it anymore.

Other than that I was off to the dentist last week and sometimes I just do not know what possesses me to schedule everything in one afternoon. I always feel like a truck hit my face and then I am such a crab for the rest of the week. Oh well, less time to take off from work to go to the dentist I guess. So my mouth still hurts a little but I am way less crabbier.

Anyways here are some pics of some of the jewelry I just loaded last week.
We have these classic Black Rose Bobby Pins

Next we have a new favorite of mine, the Vintage Daisy Chain bracelet, made from a vintage bracelet and vintage cabs.

These are super fun and sure do scream spring,Gold Floral Wonder Earrings.

Plus this gorgeous Vintage Amber ring.

Last but not least we have the classic Rhinestone Glamour Bobby Pins.

Plus a slew of new Bobby Pins and other items, now remember all of these items are one of a kind or limited edition so check them out. Also I will slowly be adding new items as I can. Until Then!

The Book!

So here is the book that I was talking about in the last post, it is called, drum roll please...... Craft Inc. by Meg Mateo Ilasco. This book is fantastic I have read a ton of books on how to start a business but this one was so beautifully laid out and easy to relate to. I recommend this book to any creative crafter trying to add on to their business or just starting out. I would also like to thank Jennifer over at Naughty Secretaries Club for recommending this one.
