a nautical twist

nautical twist

so i spent a little too much time fiddling with polyvore last night!

i have been loving the combo of navy and apple green or kelly green – kind of a funky twist on the classic nautical look.

i do have a handful of ruffled scarves available in the shop right now, and more are being added almost daily.  just to clarify, i don’t take any custom orders or pre-orders for any of my items.  i just wouldn’t be able to keep up!  also, i have found that having only ready-to-ship items is the least stressful way for me to run my business, focus on my family, and stay reasonably sane!  thank you so much for understanding!


i hope you all have a very happy monday!  i’ll be enjoying having my husband NOT working today – yippeee!

    I love your inventory philosophy. I often dream of having my own crafty business, but then I panic and throw the dreams away when I think of how stressed I’d be trying make sure I had enough inventory to sell, and then what if it doesn’t sell?! Ack. Anyways, I am happy to hear that what you do for your business works for you and maybe one day if I ever take the plunge, I’ll adopt your idea for my own shop. Off to shop the scarves now!

    i have been loving spring green since the fall… and i thin navy is such a great “neutral” to complement it. add white and you’ve got my latest color combo obsession :) glad i’m not the only one ::)

    I love everything in your shop, it’s so lovely and unique! I have a question about the necklace in the “look” you’re featuring above. Is that something that you make/sell? If not, where can I find one?
