So you think you want to start a blog.......


Are you considering starting a blog?


If you have an eye for photography, 
home decor, styling, 
creating or fashion,
you may have asked yourself this question.


Blogging is like breathing to me, it's part of me.


I realize how much work goes into keeping a blog alive.
I also realize I need a haircut, pedicure and a maid...
but blogging is like my baby, I have to take care of it.


Life gets in the way.
Weeks go by without anything to say.
I know, I know


Then there's 1000's of photos to edit
-carefully chosen words-
-page layouts-
if none of these things scare you - then go for it!




I cannot describe the happiness my blog brings me,
it's like a little release of all of my constant thoughts and ideas
swimming around in my brain!


If you are thinking about joining the blogging community,
you have to understand this...
-you will meet kindred spirits-
-you will have blog friends from all over the world-
but most of all.....you get to express your inner self

Happy Friday Everyone!

Petite Pretties

 It always starts with an image
 When I found this precious 
antique French holy card
I simply knew she would have to be shared
 Many of my pendant pieces
can be used as embellishments
 Adorn a simple bottle
or
add to a necklace
 Wherever your heart leads you today....
I hope you find a bit of happiness!
But if you feel the urge to shop...
well, you can stop in here for a start

Created with Love

From my hands...to yours
Lately, I've felt that pull again
and
found myself
reaching for my religious pieces
tarnished vintage metal boxes
turned into small art pieces to love & hold
loving the imperfections
a small wood box filled with inspiration
an embroidered ribbon kit

 the joy of having so many collections
is that I can usually pull together 
a selection in a few minutes
when you hold my shop's treasures
I hope you know
that
I created them with love
