{girls only weekend}

Recently I was invited to go and spend the weekend out of town at the home of this lovely lady, Emily B. Emily was a faithful customer who has turned into a good friend. She is clever, witty, creative and oh so sweet. I drove about 1.5 hours out of Denver on a Friday afternoon and was embraced by a wonderful hostess, homecooked meals, my own guest suite and lots of r & r.

Emily took me to an amazing antiques store in the downtown section of her sweet town. It was AMAZING! These prices were out of control low, (not like in Denver at times). I went thru 2 booths and already had about 8 items at the counter on hold. It was fabulous! pretty fabulous, right?

Top off this trip with a little bit of Starbucks and some Mexican food and lots of shows on Bravo and a girly movie. To top it all off she helped me with business stuff too. It was perfection and just what I needed. I am so lucky to have such amazing friends.

Thanks Em!

I still feel like it should be January, but alas tomorrow is the first day of Spring! I guess I better just embrace it! I am joining Fabulous K today for her Spring Link Party. Join in the fun and go here.


Happy St. Pat's Weekend!

May you always have walls for the winds, a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire, laughter to cheer you, those you love near you, and all your heart might desire. -an Irish Blessing

I hope your St. Patricks Day Weekend is full of Green, Fun and Family.

{color crush: Green: St. Patricks Day}

After making lots of Saint Patricks Day goods last week, I am noticing green all over and loving it. Saint Patricks Day is coming right up- so get yourself some green! Being a red head, green has always been a color I gravitate towards. Green becomes a little sweet when you start adding in Mint Green and Seafoam hues. It is really one of my favorite colors.

Enjoy my green picks!

{Seafoam & Gold upcycled earrings, a new item by my friend Emily at Fern and Flora. I think this is such a lovely color combination!}

A candle I adorned last week from Vintage Seed Packs and glitter and a bit of cream and gold twine. I think that vegatables have never been so glamerous. Thinking of adding candles to my etsy shop. These are going to be for sale in Omaha at my nieces Irish Dance Festival on Saturday.

love the mix of the shades of green in this kitchen

{weekend jaunt to the Country Market}

This past weekend, my beau and I set out for a day of adventure, with no real plans or demands. We headed out to Parker Colorado which is about a 1/2 hour outside of Denver. A while back, we discovered The Parker Country Market a little further out than we usually venture and Saturday we decided to return.

I found a few booths that particurly struck my fancy. {those are pictured above} There is also a booth with lots of old fashion candy, like Cherry Mash, Rock Candy and Charleston Chews. They also carry Farm Fresh eggs, which were delicious. If you find yourself in need of a weekend jaunt this is a good one. You can also visit Nomilie Cupcakes while in town.

Have yourself a good week!



{Color Changes Everything}

Have you seen the new commercial for Target? It is super cute, with French Music {Alouette} and color, lots of color. Their current campaign is "Color Changes Everything." Yes, indeed it does.

This is the most darling, sweet and fresh video/ commercial I have seen in a while. It features french music, as previously mentioned, lovely colors and a sort of vintage quality in some parts, {not the part shown above of course} oh and an hot air balloon. Tell me what you think...!
