New Inventory!

I have been adding new inventory to my shop as fast as my little fingers can fly, and as much as the little monkeys will let me! I still have so much more to add and more on the way!
What is new??? Well I will tell you....glass glitters, the most gorgeous and amazingly sparkly glass glitters. They are imported from germany, an old glass foundry still makes these wonderful quality glitters the old fashioned way. They are made from crushed "mercury glass" and contain real silver so they will tarnish to that fantastic aged antique patina that we all love so much. I have many colors available and will be adding more later, right now, two shades of pink, two shades of red, icy blue, silver, and green are all in and fully stocked. What else is new?? Flowers , flowers, and more flowers!!! I have the most wonderful millinery style flowers in glorious velvets. The pretty rhinestone center flowers are so delicate and vintage looking and come in 4 colors, and the velvet pleated flowers now come in 10 fantastic colors and I have them all listed in the shop!!! Not to mention the wool felt flowers, the paper flowers and the distressed foam flowers I have not had a chance to even add to the shop yet! Could you stand any more???? How about vintage french book pages? Oh yes I picked up a fair quanity of old french books and have made the most wonderful little packets out of those lovely old pages. I will be back soon to tell you about the new ribbons, laces, and trims, some will be regular store stock but some are great vintage finds and you will have to get them quick!

Stir Crazy...


When there is nothing to do, the children will find something to keep them busy. Sometimes it is enough to drive you crazy, or some times it is just plain crazy........

Fire, Fire, Fire...

It has been a busy couple of weeks with the wildfire situation here in Northern California! Hubby has been on Emergency call out (with the Sheriff's Dept.) for the last 29 days, which means no days of, no vacations and minimum of 12 hr shifts. They finally lifted the order last night! That means the fires are finally coming under control, the community has been amazingly supportive, but still so many people have lost their homes. It is just terrible to see the photos and video of the devastation. We are so lucky in our little mountain community, we were spared the fire being close, and the evacuations so many of our neighbors went thru. There is still soot and ash everywhere, and today I finally see a small patch of blue sky thru the smoke! The girls (ages 2&4) have been great, but it has been hard with daddy gone so much, either not seeing them at all or getting home just in time for a kiss goodnight. They miss the wrestling, and outdoor fun. The air quality has been in the high hazardous, so we have been spending our time indoors at home, and thank god for Kid's Park! I am sad to say that they did not want to leave there yesterday to come home with me, but I am trying not to take it too personally as it is the only place they have had to climb and run and play with other kids since the fires started.
