Vintage dresses

Timeless vixen

I am telling you that I should of been alive in the 50's. I just love all the styles of that time. Especially the dresses of that time. I also love the handbags and such as you probably already know.  I found all these dresses in my new favorite vintage shop called Timeless Vixen's etsy shop. You can check out the store here. I am in love and wish I could buy one of these. They are all so lovely. I love to wear dresses even if it is just to go shopping. It doesn't have to be a special occation to throw on a dress. I love the girlie side of me. I hardly see people in dresses anymore so when I wear one I probably stick out a bit, but I don't care because I am most comfortable in a dress. If I owned enough dresses I would wear one  everyday. My husband and I have recently really gotten be the era that I should of lived in. Maybe it's the style or the old fasion ways of everyone. I don't know. I can't get over how they smoke everywhere and all the time. They wake up in the middle of the night and light up. I think that is werid but maybe that's because we live in a time where smoking is looked down upon. Ether way it is a great show.

So the weather has now moved from warm to cold here in Tennisee, and the leaves are finally starting to change and fall. I can't wait until the ground is covered and I can take the little ones out for a falltastic photo shot. I really enjoy this weather a lot. I am origianally from Texas and it doesn't really get that cold and the leaves change from green straight to brown. Don't get me wrong Texas has bueaty all it's own but when it comes to autum and winter there just isn't much glory there. At some point I am going to post some photos of this place. I just havn't been much of photographer latley well I haven't been much of anything lately. But that is okay because like the seasons that are always changing so are my moods and hobbys. What will come next, I don't know I am now working on my Christmas gifts and cards. I am just trying to have fun with it. I know this is random but I try to have fun in everything that I do. I hope that you get the chance to do that too have  a great week everyone.

These earrings are really coming back into style as all things vintage are. I think this is a classic look that can really go with any outfit. Buy them here

I am starting to see pearls everywhere. I now see why...they go with everything from a dress to jeans and a cute top. These little treasures are only 10 dollars. What a deal and can be found here

Oh my word these are breath taking. I love the scrolls on these. I found these little wonders here

I am loving this shade of pink. This shop also has these in a few other colors it was hard to choose just one to feature. I found these Here


Talk about the wow effect. These would give you just that. I love how big the glass is and the purple is stunning too. I found these here 

These are so very pretty. Once again I love how big the glass is. I think I really appreciate jewelry that stands out as these do. I found them here

I just love earrings. I did this post because I am in need of some earrings. I sadly own only one pair. I know sad right. When we moved my children got into my jewelry box. Need I saw more. Well vintage is back and what better place to find vintage and handmade vintage items but etsy. I love that site as you can tell. I can spend all day on there. There were many other earrings I saw and really could of got wrapped up in todays post.

Anyways I want to apoligize for the lacks of posts lately I have really gotten my self wrapped up in my bible lately. I have also started to help out with my churches youth group and I am now preparing to go back to school. Yes I am a busy little bee.
I am in a hard place in life right now because I feel god tugging at me to do one thing but my heart is pulling another way. I know in the end that gods will, will be done. But I feel him leading me away from my on-line stores to focus on other things. This is sad for me, because I so love to create things and really enjoy selling on-line. Maybe a break from it, is in order just to figure out what I am needing to do. I am still going to hold up the blog and even start some give-a-ways real soon. For the time being I will post twice a week, once on Tuesdays and once one Fridays. Just a quick reminder to you guys. You can click on the pictures to take you to the item, and you can click one the Here to take you to the store. I also want to thank all my followers for following. You guys mean so much to me and I hope you have a blessed week.

I just love all these little creations. My daughter has been gaining an interest in Mushrooms so in light of her curiosities I have decated todays post to that.

Well blogger has change a bit, so it will take so getting use to for me to get back into the swing of things and post shop names with the photos.  I am also trying to find a design that goes with my personality and the personality of this blog. I am have been left behind by the technical advances so it will take me time to learn how to designs this the way my brain has it pictured. But all in good time. I can't wait til payday when I go to buy some of those computers for dummies books.

This weekend I took part in a run to raise Awareness of child trafficking. It was hard for me to run for I am so out of shape. But it felt good when I finished. Not only body wise but soul wise to. Sometime I forget how good it is to publicly support out believes. It has been so long since I have done anything to better the world. I had a once believed that I would of accomplished so much good in this world that my tombstone would read some like... She dyed trying to save the world.. I know I giggle too. But somewhere in life I forgot all the dreams I had. I put them on the back burner of life and followed the path that was there for me to follow. I want so bad to create my own path. I am not saying that I am not creating my own life as I am sure I add wear to the path I am on now. I feel I am leaving a mark that shows I have been there. Something. I just want to add so much to this world. I want my life to impact...I am not sure what. Maybe that is why I haven't strayed far from path that was pre-designed. The cookie cutter life I am leading now. Please don't think I am in anyway that I am  putting down my life now, I love it and feel very blessed to have it. However I just have had this longing for as long as I can remember that I would do something big. I am not sure exactly where this rant is going but I felt an urge to share this with you guys today. So that is what I have done. I know that it seems like an incomplete thought (at least to me) but that is all I have at this time. I hope everyone has an awesome week.

I love the idea of anything that is reusable like this coffee sleeve, leave to the crafter to come up with this cute idea. I found this one at BellflowerTextiles.etsy.com

I am in love with these cute little stuffed owls. I love the trendy fabric that was used it has a retro feel to it. I found these little guys in mqsquare.etsy.com

This owl necklace reminds me of jade, I love the glitter. I found this little treasure in FashionCandy.etsy.com

These earrings are a one of a kind. I love that shade of orange. TOO CUTE I found these at lilikoicottage.etsy.com

I love this little planter this would be really cute paired up with the trivet below. You could even plan some cooking herbs in it. I found this little find at fruitflypie.etsy.com

This would look great with any kitchen decor I also think it would be nice to hang anywhere else in the house. Found this in weetreasures1.etsy.com

Oh my word, these would be perfect to add to just about any crafting project...Made by asecinc.etsy.com and they also have them in a bunch of other colors..

This is super cute.. I love the fabric that was used and the giant eyes, Made by ManicMuffinTotes.etsy.com

When I was a little girl my family would take trip to Georgia most summers. I had a great aunt that we would visit while I was there. She collected owls and had a whole room dedicated to her collection. Every time we would visit her she would give us a tour of the room, I always looked forward to this. I loved to see the many different owls that she had. I have been a collector of many things but never of anything that I could dedicate a room to. I miss this time in my life and have been thinking of these trips we use to take.
My aunt is gone now but the memories she gave me are always on my heart. I think of her at times and I think of her collection, as anytime I see an owl I think of her. It is funny how things can lead to memories of a person, I like that about life. I wonder what things when seen bring people to think of me?

It is coming. Yes Halloween and I can't wait. Something about the kid in me still enjoys dressing up even if it is just to hand out candy or take the little ones trick or treating. I really love it and the fact that I still look like a middle school kid dressed up allows me to really stock up on treats. I still get a kick out of it when all the adults tell me that my little sisters are sooo cute. I don't even bother telling them that they are my children. Too funny.
To me today is like Monday because of the holiday so I am starting my week off today. I am excited as I will be posting new items to my shop today and posting a few things to my new store. I have alot of exciting things happening for me right now. I hope that exciting things are happening for you too. If anyone has good new please share by commenting it I am sure we all would love to hear it. Good day

Feeling a little leafy






Last month was a long and hard month for me and I want to apologize for the lack of post lately it has been so hectic around here. But it has calmed down.
I am so glad that September is here that means that Autumn isn't far away. This is my favorite time of year, I love the weather change and the colors. Well the colors just look great on me plus I love love love sweaters. I live in Tennessee and the leaves are already starting to change and drop off. I am over joyed by this as I can't wait to do a photo shoot with my girls in the leaves. This season is really something to see. I lived in Texas till last summer and we had hardly any color on our fallen leaves, so when I say that there's a sight to be seen there really is. Fall isn't here just yet but you can tell it's on it's way.

So I have been a busy little bee getting ready to open my new store Cherry Marie. It is still a work in progress but it is coming along nicely. I hope to get it up and running in the next week or so. I have been crafting for weeks, that doesn't mean that I have a whole lot done. But it is getting there. I have also been working on my Christmas cards and they are coming out breath taking. I will have some of them posted in my shop by the end of this week. I think this years cards just might be the best yet. I am so excited about all that is going on. In a past post I said that I felt like a little cloud was following me raining on me everywhere I went. Well the rainbow has made it's grand appearance and I feel much better and on top of the world.

Rain drops keep falling on my head

I just love, love earrings, if you haven't already noticed. These remind me of little raindrops. I found them friedasophie.etsy.com

This little clutch covered in silver dots would be great for so many things. I really do need to e-mail the hubby a wish list. I found this at oktak.etsy.com there are so many wonderful little bags in this shop.

This pendant would look great on a choker or a long chain. It is so very pretty. I found this and many other wonderful things at betsysbuttons.etsy.com

This shear scarf is perfect for the weather right now. You know where it is about to be not so hot and not cold. That weather where change is happening, seasons going and coming. Plus shear seems to be in right now. I found this at cloudhopping.etsy.com

I love this bag it just looks so roomy, I really like the simplicity of it. I found this at ThongbaiTatong.etsy.com

This print of little red riding hood in the forest (at least I think it is little red) is so pretty. I really like the colors used. It reminds me of the type of day I am having. I found this at matilou.etsy.com

This umbrella necklace is really nice. I really like the pearl. I found this at anirtak.etsy.com they have many designs to choose from all very creative and cute.

Today the weather is just gloomy, it seems like the rain clouds are not only outside today. There is one following me around my house pouring down on me. You know they say when it rains it pours well it is storming around here. I won't bore you with the details but life is just hard for us right now. It seems like we are always a few steps behind where we need to be. So today I tried to find items that expressed the weather and the mood I am in. With the rain and gloomy greys. I know life will get better and that to have a pretty rainbow you first have to have the storm.
