Vintage Flowers Make Me Happy!


About 14 hours post op and Keegan is doing remarkably well. I am very impressed with his composure and maturity, even through the pain.

He got a little more than he bargained for on his left leg. They had a lot of trouble removing the pins and had to cut a larger size hole to get the pin out resulting in a bone graft. They are treating it like a bone fracture. This of course is the same leg that he had the plate out by his knee, so most of his pain radiates from his left leg. They put both of his feet in boots that are like air casts. He will have to wear the left one for a full 6 weeks. The right one will come off after 2-3 weeks.

He had a decent night with great sleep and only about three late night visits from his super sweet nurse.

He has had about 4-5 pitchers of ice chips. He is fully enjoying ice relentlessly. He also ate a great meal before sleep last night.

His biggest hurdle will be to see if he can stand and walk. His Doctor was a little worried that he would not be able to walk for a while. Also returning to school might be a challenge as he really does not want a wheel chair and many of his classes are on opposite ends of the building.

Tonight at approximately midnight I will be posting my bead soup reveal. I am super excited to see what everyone has created.


I love the old vintage flower element that I mixed in with some vintage beads and swirls of wire. This vintage looks brings me such happiness.

I hope you have a happy Friday.
Talk to ya later! Kris

Oh My Poor iPhone…

Hello Friends…

Yesterday, my companion for 21ย months had an accident…

Don’t be too alarmed, it was my iphone…

This baby went everywhere with me… stuck by my side…

woke me up,

kept me on schedule,

allowed me to check email,

and respond,

find my kids,


find my way in the dark,

work when I couldn’t sleep,

take photos,

manage my photos,

save money,

find my car,

search for anything online,

follow blogs,

access facebook,

list on etsy,


the only thing it didn’t help me do is clean my house!

In an artistic way, the swirls of broken glass are kind of pretty.

It still lights us and works, but you can’t read the texts or messages… My brother in law has offered to fix the screen. I have been coveting my upgrade for the 5 that is supposed to be released soon.

So, my photo taking skills will be limited in the next few days, I have photos for a few blog posts… So the race is on!

In the end, it is only a materialistic item, but one that makes my life so much easier!

Hope you have a great day! Kris ๐Ÿ™‚

Swirly White Vintage Glass Necklace


I am excited to share my Mother’s Day surprise…


An Ollo Clip for my iPhone… My friend Hilary told me about it a few weeks ago… And my little Chick-a-doodle wrote it down and diligently started looking online (with the help of her Dad, of course)… It was a bit of a challenge to find one… I heard all about it on Mother’s Day. It was super sweet that they worked so hard to find one!

What is an Ollo Clip you ask? It is a lens attachment for my iPhone. It included three lenses, a fisheye, wide angle and a macro lens. It is the macro that I will use most often when taking pics of my jewelry.


This is one of the first pics I took with it. I was quite surprised by the blue hue… It turns out I must have done something to the settings… So I closed out of the camera and it came back up without the blue! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is the fisheye lens. Kya was experimenting for me.


I can’t remember if this is the wide angle lens, but it is one of my fav’s… Do you know why?

20120515-064215.jpg Yes! You are right, because you can see her cute little toesies in the bottom of the photo! Love it!


She does have a pretty creative style of photography!


Love the grass in this one!

I took a pic of some keys I was clear coating. I got a new app called grunge pic and boy is it fun!!


Love the textures!


I forgot to mention that the first pic was taken with my Ollo Clip and the second was taken last week without it. Hopefully my photos will have more clarity!

The necklace pictured has some of my favorite vintage glass beads. They look like milk glass and are so beautiful. I swirled and twirled them into a necklace. I love picturing them with a summer tee or a long sun dress.

๐Ÿ™‚ Have a funtastic day! ๐Ÿ™‚ Kris

Whimsically White


Whimsically white has been my groove for a few days. I have had to force myself to mix it up a little.


I am excited about today. I am going to go help my niece Bailey and my sister Kar with prom preparations. I can’t believe this is her senior prom!

I am excited to show you pics in the next day or two!

Last night I thought Putter, our cat was going to jump from our upstairs balcony!


Do you see him peeking out? Sorry about the poor lighting. He was walking on top of the railing earlier last night.


He is such a leaper and getting more brave every day!

Here is a picture after we successfully distracted him. Why would you jump off a perfectly good balcony?

Have a fantastic Saturday!
๐Ÿ™‚ Kris
