Friday night Cassandra hosted a craft night at her home for our "Pretty and Vintage Things" art group. Cassandra is so talented and makes amazing jewelry! She was so gracious to share some of her amazing jewelry supplies with us and teach us how to make a charm bracelet of our own. It was a little frustrating at first because I had never made this kind of jewelry before, but with Cassandra's help I finally got the hang of it and ended up loving it! We had so much fun eating, laughing, learning and creating together once again. If you live in the Tampa area or in Florida and are interested in our group, click on the link above for more info.
Hope ya'll have a great week, Molly

My terrarium needed an update. I decided not to re-plant live plants in it this time. The metal around the bottom of the terrarium is rusting out from years of moisture :( and I didn't want to ruin it. Instead of living plants, I "planted" preserved moss and artificial ivy and fern. I embellished the tiny woodland with small pebbles, my ceramic mushroom, a pair of small garden chairs and a fairy that I created with vintage images and glitter. I placed the terrarium in front of my kitchen sink. My fairy world makes doing the dishes a little more bearable. :)

I love the color, the texture, the wedge,
and THE BOW! Okay, so I don't normally show my panties on my blog but I had to share these. Today I had to do my weekly trip to Walmart. Walmart isn't that fun for me, it's all business. Cleaning stuff, toiletries, etc. you know the boring stuff. Well I was cruising along and happened to pass the lingerie section and that is when I spotted these cuties... I think I have a built in radar for anything pink and lace. I love these made by "fruit of the loom". I love the stripes, I love the floral print, I love the lace and love the price, $7.95 for both!
Hope you are having a great week! xoxo Molly

I am thrilled to announce Karen Hillman's art event, "Beauty in Blue"! Beauty in Blue is an artistic weekend retreat celebrating springtime in Texas! The main focus of this weekend is to escape and create with an intimate group of artful minded women. We will relax, unwind and indulge ourselves in beautiful projects featuring shades of blues, creams and whites. This all inclusive event will be held at the charming and lovely Whitworth Ranch Retreat. The retreat is a ranch that was built in the late 1800's and sits on 50 acres in Scurry, Texas which is about 50 miles southeast of Dallas. All meals, accommodations, instructor fees and projects are provided with your reservation. Karen is also pleased to announce " The Beauty in Blue Portrait Event" to be held following the art event throughout the week of April 1st. Children, couples, families...this is the time and place for a SPECTACULAR photo session!
