Thrifty succulents!

I found the cutest faux succulents at
the most unexpected place...
the family dollar store! 

They were a $1 each!
I did remove them from their not
so cute containers however &
planted them in 
the cutest vintage planter that
I picked up for $1 as well. 

I decided to plant them in dirt. 
in hopes to make them look real.
 I am in love with the 
look of succulents but 
I have never been 
able to keep them alive! 
This was a great inexpensive alternative
to real plants. 

Now to find something for
 the deer planter. Maybe a cute herb
of some sort?

I am really, really happy with the
look of this little corner
of our breezeway!

We're thinkin' Spring!

I am trying really hard to channel Spring
with new accessories!
New Spring flapper girl headbands 
are here with soft jersey knits in 
florals, stripes & polk a dots! 

I have been really lucky lately &
found some new to me 
vintage fabric! I love this new 
batch of hair bows/ bow ties!

I am also a little obsessed with turban 
headbands! They fit the look
of my vintage inspired accessories &
 are so comfy!

They are all made from recycled 
materials like my flapper girl headbands.

I really love the this batch
of Spring fabric button earrings!

I have restocked most of
the shops that carry my wares with 
Spring goodies &
I will be selling at 
The Artery in downtown Appleton 
April 30th from 9-2 (SAVE THE DATE)!
More info. soon!

P.S. Thank you to everyone
who came out & supported us at
The Spring Crafty fair this past Sunday! 
What a great day! 

THANK YOUeveryone
for your continued support!

Think Spring.. it's coming!!! xo!

Happy Spring!?!

I am so ready for Spring & 
with snow on the way I am trying
my hardest to stay positive! ;) 

I made up the sweetest 60s inspired Spring 
headbands that are on their 
way to I like you in Minneapolis!
Don't worry I plan on making a few for 
The Crafty Fair in Madison, April 10th as well!

I must be in the Spring mind set! I 
found these adorable lotus bowls
at the thrift store today! We have mini
lotus bowls but these are normal size. 
I think they were a steal at 50 cents each!

I am ready for birds chirping, butterflies, 
green grass, gardens & outdoors parties! 
If anything I guess my headbands
scream Spring! 

Hopefully this is the last of the white stuff 
for us here in Wisconsin! 

Happy Spring!!! xo!

Life lately...

I found this little dish yesterday
for .25 cents! I love it! :)
There has been a lot of dreaming over here! 

A few signs of Spring! I am loving 
the weather!!! It was 62 degrees in
Oshkosh yesterday & I will take it even 
if winter is not over yet!

Lately I have made it a point to thrift
all of my clothes & I have found
over a dozen dresses that I truly love &; most 
have been under $2. 

I am making it a point to get rid of something
when I buy something new!

I almost can't buy anything new when
I know I can buy a boutique
dress for $1.50.
I get many compliments on my dresses &
people always seemed shocked when I 
tell them where I bought them! 
I am ok with that, it's fun 
& I love thrifting!

Speaking of... I found this cute handmade
lap blanket, like new for Dexter & I think
he loves it! He has been on it
since I gave it to him!
It's so cute &
 I love the colors in it & it was $1.75! :)

We had a show last weekend in Milwaukee at
Discovery World! It was a fun day &
I REALLY love working with my hubby!
He is pretty much the BEST business
partner ever! 

Spring is on it's way & I am enjoying some 
down time until the 
busy summer season starts for me!

p.s. Be sure to check out our new blog..
for DIY's & our candle business!

Time Flies!!!! Happy Friday!

The past month or so has been quite a whirlwind!
I organized Fall in Love with handmade-
an urban craft fair that was held a few weeks ago
in coordination with the Heart of the Winter
Celebration, a fundraiser for 
The Day by Day warming shelter in Oshkosh.

We were able to donate over $900 just from
our part! It was a great day & such a great event for 
a great cause! 

Here is a little recap of the past month... 

I found this amazing vintage Irish fabric &
was able to make 4 snap cowls out 
of it! :) I sold a few & now they
are available in my etsy shop!

My husband & I started a side business..
Thrifty-Fox. We make soy wax candles
in recycled beer bottles & vases out of 
liquor bottles like the Jameson
 one shown below(of course I kept that one)!

Here is my hubby set up at Fall in Love with 
handmade at our Thrifty-Fox booth! :)

I started making Wisconsin Coffee
cozies! They were a big hit at the show &
I am working hard to catch up!

Next up.. Saturday March 5th, Discovery World, 
10-5 for the Maker Market in Milwaukee!
 We will have all of my accessories &
our candles at my booth! 
See you there!!! xo!

Happy Friday!
