Resin Flower Earrings

Resin Flower Earrings

I am always amazed at people who think scrapbook stores are just for scrapbooking. It’s like saying Home Depot is intended only for plumbers. I spend way too much time in Home Depot, and I have no interest whatsoever in plumbing. (Although, maybe I should learn more about plumbing since [...]

Vintage Silver Tray Door Signs

Vintage Silver Tray Door Signs

As summer winds down life is getting super busy around here. Like, “I guess we should cut your hair, buy shoes since all you currently own is flip-flops, and actually pick up a few school supplies,” kind of busy. Oh, don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I don’t want [...]
