i am so blessed to have both of my grandmothers still alive and kickin’.
this past weekend we surprised my maternal grandma for her 90th birthday!
she hasn’t been feeling well and is at a care facility right now, but was allowed to fly the coop for a bit of a break for her party.
her whole family was there, minus 2 of my siblings (and their families) who are too cool to live in the contiguous u.s. ;)
we spent the day eating yummy take out, consuming mass amounts of cake and ice cream (with 10+ lbs of lardy frosting – blech), swimming with the kiddos, and playing speed scrabble – yes, jeannett, i am a game player.
we all contributed to “90 things we love…” for grandma, a growing tradition for our family.
i am so thankful for the year i got to live with grandma when i first moved away for college.
and i’m even more thankful that she didn’t kick me out (i started dating sean when i lived with her and tended to stay out ’til the wee hours of the night!).
i know i promised some of you that i’d list new products on monday morning, but with being out of town, having an apparent tornado hit my living room, and having ants crawling across my kitchen, dining room, bedroom and bathroom, i decided cleaning up was a better choice.
when nicole and i came across these beauties we knew we had to figure out a way to make them work because they are bee. you. tee. ful!
i received many emails this week requesting specific petal drops. each necklace is one of a kind and cannot be reproduced, so when its gone, its gone! but i do use the same fabric occasionally with different placement, so keep your eye out for your favorite and snag it when you get a chance! also, i can’t take on custom orders, unless you happen to find some extra time lying around for me, then i’ll be all over them!
i will also be adding my adorable new coin purses to my shop as soon as the sun comes up and i can photograph them – for now this iphone pic will have to do.
i got my shipment of snaps in and they are the perfect finishing touch on those teensy purses with the cutest ruffle ever!
*EDITED TO ADD: i just loaded the tiny pouches in to my shop!*
also coming this week: wristlet clutches!
and come check me out over at blessed little nest’s handmade & vintage market.
so much fun stuff!
