Shop the Shop-Newly Stocked AND BLACK FRIDAY SALE!

Real's a catch up on what's been going on in my shop over the last few months! AND in lou of American Thanksgiving, I'm jumping on the Black Friday Sales bandwagon! Use code BLACK25 to receive 25% OFF everything in my shop.

The latest collection in the shop consists of a variety of necklaces. All one of a kind and all combining new and old pieces. These kinda came to be when I realized my 'overflow' drawers were really overflowing! Ends of chains, bits and piece of necklaces I took apart, a collection of beads from eons ago...they all were begging me to transform them!

Same kind of story on the hair pin sets...all one of a kind and made using reclaimed and new pieces. I've recently become quite obsessed with vintage jewelry and antique buttons...

And of course, you'll still find these super comfy, one of a kind bracelets and scarves, made from recycled t-shirts!

So what are you waiting for? Head on over before someone else get's it before you do!

Use code BLACK25 at checkout for 25% OFF!

My Handmade Market Setup

Just thought I would update you all with some pics from my latest craft sale...

I really had the vision in my head that I wanted a black ombre tablecloth layered over top of the pink one that I did a few months back...Well it turned out to be a bit of a DIY fail...and ended in a rather dark bluish color...of course I am a last minute girl, so blue it stayed! I'm really digging my sign though...

The antique cash register box I found proved to be the most perfect holder for my earrings...organized by color of course! 

My favorite part of the whole display was these logs. I dragged my Dad out early Thanksgiving morning to pick up some logs that we saw on the side of the road the day before...the final step involved a chain saw in the backyard, and tada! Plus, I got a few smaller ones for another project too :) The ones in the photo also got a light dusting of some gold spray paint.

Overall, it was a fabulous show! I've always stuck with the one day craft shows...but I think investing in a three day show was totally worth it!

I'm always on the look out for great craft show displays. Do you have any pins or posts that show inspiring set ups for handmade markets?

Oh, and watch for new items being added to the shop this week too!

Some DIY's, playtime, leaves, prepping for craft shows and Halloween pretty much sum it up!

How was your October?

Life isn't about finding yourself. It's about creating yourself.
-George Bernard Shaw

Well my friends, the time has come to say goodbye to Loving Lately. I know, it's sad. Kelly & Dawnelle have truly been the best, they are fabulous to work with and are terrific bloggers, but as a whole I think we were feeling overwhelmed with everyday life and staying on top of this weekly link up.

Lets face it, we all have 'real' lives.

Personally speaking, I have a million things on the the go, so to be stuck to HAVING to post on this very fine day every week, it got to be too much. I love the idea of showing off my fabulous finds on Pinterest, I love the idea of taking this day to actually think about the little things that made my week special, or pull together a fabulous curation of Etsy finds or things I'm drooling over. The thing is though, is that I can still do all those things, I just won't be posting about it weekly. If you like what I pin you can follow me here. But I don't want to be pressured to sit at my computer every Thursday night trying to pull together something fabulous, sometimes even forgetting that I was supposed to do that and throwing together something last minute. I want to still post about those things, but just on my own time. For those of you that have been following me for awhile {and have actually stuck around since my posting became obsolete}you could probably tell that my heart hasn't been in to blogging lately.
