{Cute as a Button, cont'd.}

I have been inspired by this morning's shopping experience
and have decided to create a button piece of my own.

Oh, how I love this vintage style "Cute as a Button" necklace.
The listing includes one 20 gauge, sterling silver pendant, engraved with a one-of-a-kind button
and hand stamped with the name of your choice.
We can add as many pendants as you need for only an additional $7 per pendant.
Each necklace is accented with a beautiful pearl & hangs from a 17" chain.

These will make for a wonderful Easter gift for Mom!
But, why wait... Get yours today by visiting the shop!

{Saturday Shopping}

Have I ever told you how much I love Etsy??
And how much I just LOVE LOVE LOVE buttons??

If my husband allowed it, I could spend a fortune on both...
I spent my Saturday morning dreaming about these pieces

What are your favorites?

{monday fun day} & a giveaway winner!

It's not often I say this, but I love Monday...
...when I don't have to get in the car first thing in the morning & head to the office to crunch numbers.

Thanks to a long President's Day weekend, I was able to wake up on my own time snuggled between hubby & the pup
{I never have to worry about being cold} :-)
Hubby was able to get a later start than normal this morning, so when I finally crawled out of bed, my day looked a little like this:

Hubby got heart shaped blueberry pancakes for breakfast.

I did the dishes...
...followed by some laundry
{something's wrong with this picture & it's not just the camo pants in that pile} ;-)

I took advantage of a buy one {get one free} coupon I had for Yankee Candle...
{was that a good choice, or what??}

I made some jewelry...

Damon helped.

...but most importantly
{and the moment you've all been waiting for}...

...I picked a winner {using} for our Wizard of Oz giveaway:

Rebecca said:
Love it! Pick me! I would be a "Bad Witch" most days. ;)

You're not the only one, Rebecca! :-)

Email me at to claim your necklace!

Thank you all who participated & don't forget, you can find that oh-so-cute necklace in the store

Happy President's Day!!!

wizard of oz & {a giveaway}...CLOSED.

I love The Wizard of Oz & decided to spend my Sunday morning watching the movie.

I recently bought these little red slippers for an up and coming giveaway {stay tuned}
& wanted to come up with a Wizard of Oz themed necklace for the extra inventory.

This is one pendant that can be worn two different ways...
stamped on the front and back with the words
"Good Witch" and "Bad Witch."
Wear it on the "Good Witch" side on a good day
& warn your kids & co-workers by wearing it on the "Bad Witch" side on those
"woke up on the wrong side of the bed" kind of days.

This is the perfect gift for any Wizard of Oz fan & will make a great addition to their Easter basket, too!
Find it in the store: {here}

We want to give one away to our followers.
Two entries allowed:
**Enter to win by posting here
**and by posting on our Facebook page

One lucky winner will be drawn tomorrow!

A few months ago, I received news from my aunt that a close family friend is fighting the battle of her life.
At the young age of 17, our dear friend was diagnosed with cancer.

While my mom battled cancer, I remember having a lot of questions,
but there were three little words that helped me deal with those moments...

hope.  believe.  pray.

When all else failed, I knew God would carry the burdens of uncertainty for me.
I wanted our friend to know this, too, so I made this necklace just for her.

We pray everyday for increased health for her & I ask all of you out in Blogger-land to do the same.
If there is something we can do in this world to make a difference, it's to hope. believe. pray.


I have made this necklace available in the store for all of you who want to send the same message to a loved one.
We will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this necklace to the "For the Love of Donna" Relay for Life team in Boyertown, Pennsylvania.
