What a fantastic way to start the weekend! No school again today! After weeks of grueling hockey, swimming, ski club, boys choir, archery and volleyball practices for my children, only two of the six activities are ongoing! This morning due to icy conditions, they all got to sleep in and we all get a chance to just breathe!

Last week I created this baseball bracelet by special request of a pretty funky baseball mom!

It was a fun bracelet to create for her!

I also listed more in my etsy shop yesterday. I hope to have more listings complete in the next few days.


This DrEAm necklace is available in my etsy shop here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/181739256/dream-hand-stamped-wax-seal-style

I also listed this Vintage Tape Measure necklace…

Do you know a Sassy Nana? I listed this Sassy Nana necklace…

And if you need a reminder to breathe… Or maybe a friend is dealing with a challenging time, this necklace may be perfect.

Tomorrow is Kya’s first volleyball tourney where they will be playing up a level. It is going to be a fun and challenging day… I am certain they will get a run for their money!

I hope you can find some time to just breathe and relax this weekend.

I Believe in Angels Necklace

Do you believe in angels?


I do. When I found this charm, I knew I had to get it… The message touched my heart and brought me back to a painful time in my life. As I grow older, I realize what a gift those five baby angels are.

Our journey to parenthood included five miscarriages. As a jewelry junkie, I searched and searched for jewelry to commemorate those angels. So you can see why this pendant has a special place in my heart. I listed this necklace in my Etsy Shop here. Sending a hug to each of you who believes in angels!

The sun is rising this morning, we caught it glistening on the large icicle dangling from our rooftop.



Enjoy a happy Friday!

The Noodles Are Done!


Apparently when I was in Arizona, Tom was giving our kids culinary lessons. Lessons that included how to tell if your pasta is ready…

Yesterday when I ran to pick up Sawyer and Kya from school, I asked Keegan to stir the turkey noodle soup and to watch so the noodles don’t get overcooked.

We walked in the door and Keegan very confidently said “The noodles are done!” I asked, “How do you know, did you taste them?”

He replied, “No, I’ll show you!”


“Mom, don’t you know that noodles stick to the ceiling when they are done? Dad showed us when you were in Arizona!”

Isn’t it a great picture of Keegan cleaning them off my ceiling? DaddyO is now on ceiling duty! And you can bet that when my kids say the Mac and cheese is done, I will be looking up to check! {laughing out LOUD!}

Yesterday was a glorious winter day in Minnesota!

Lovin’ Vintage!!

Have a glorious day!
