Wintery White Cuff Bracelets

cuff bracelet arm

As I gander through magazines and others blogs I am often inspired by the many artisans that have a passion to create. I have had the pleasure of working with Maggie Maie and when viewing her pieces I was inspired by her line of cuff bracelets.

I thought I’d try my hand at creating a few of my own and was pleased with the results. Now I have been busy creating gifts for a few special someones who have made special Christmas requests. Fashioned with material from an old sweater or white velvet, and embellished with a lovely broach and tooling, these once imperfect pieces all joined together to create the perfect Christmas bracelet. I hope they enjoy wearing these hand crafted cuff bracelets just as much as I have enjoyed creating them and will have the pleasure of giving to them on that very special day, Christmas Morning.

A Table set for a King


A little white coffee table so full of wonder and praise to greet the great King who was born on this Christmas day. Look under the pure white tree. What gift do you see? The gift of our Jesus who came for you and for me.


May your home be filled with the spirit of Christmas and may your hearts be full of his praise.


May bells ring gloriously for the New Born King


As Angels sing unto him and shout his holy name.


As I sit and think of what this season truely means, my heart is filled with great joy. A precious and pure savior was born who later was nailed to a cross so that I (we) may live in eternity with him.

As we all come together with family and friends may we still ourselves to recognize, the greatest gift, the birth of our Great King who lives today. Take the time to sit, to enjoy priceless moments with those you love, to give generously to those without, and to look around you and be grateful for all of the gifts you have been blessed with, all year long.

A December Welcome to you and yours. I’m sure you are enjoying the many moments of merriment that this holiday season brings; family, decorating, traditions, Christmas gatherings, and all things joyful.

Join us in welcoming the most wonderful time of the year!

IMG_3711Angel wings, glittered sprigs, snow flakes, vintage bulbs, a tussie mussie filled with sheet music, and song birds welcome each guest as they enter my home.


The air is filled with melodies of His Wonderful Peace!


A mini, vintage Tussie Mussie that I picked up at one of my favorite places, Miss Tiggy Winkles


Last year I found these beautiful, vintage bulbs, along with a few others, at an Estate sale and couldn’t wait to display them this year. When I took them out of their wrapping I felt like I had discovered a treasure all over again. Look at their charm, I’m sure they have a story to tell and have brought much cheer to many.


May your hearts be filled with all things wonderful during this Holiday Season, take time to enjoy the simple pleasures that come with this most wonderful time of the year!

Wintery Lil Poms

Let it snow, Let it Snow, Let it snow

I have created some precious Lil Poms that are perfect for the Wintery Season ahead. When creating these signature pieces I am filled with so much Joy. With my winter line of "Lil Poms" As I created these "Lil Poms" I used Christmas songs and quotes as a source of inspiration. I hope you enjoy my new creations, if you just can't live without one of these Whimsical Lil Poms they are available on Etsy.

Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?

Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wand'ring
So fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Twinkle Toes

Every Time a Bell Rings an Angel Gets its Wings

May Your Hearts be filled with Joy and Laughter During this Wintery Season

Wreaths of Royalty


I have been a busy bee creating for my upcoming Christmas show, so I have been away from the blog world. I shared this with some of my fans last year but thought you all may enjoy this short DIY also.

Did you know that a wreath goes back to ancient times and was a symbol of royalty? A wreath was called a diadem, a Greek word meaning “a thing bound around.” As other countries noticed the wreaths eventually “crowns” were created. The word crown derives from the Latin word corona, which means garland or wreath. Today, wreaths are used as holiday adornments or ornaments as attractive welcoming decorations for our front doors, even as center pieces. Feel as Royalty as you make your wreath and let it symbolize a crown as you display it in remembrance of the King who was born.

You will need: a sprig of berries, glittered leaves, ribbon or tulling, vintage pages, and a hot glue gun

Step 1: Remove each bud from the main stem



Step 2: Arrange the buds in a circle with the end under the top of the alternating piece


Step 3: Use hot glue to attach the end of one bud to the top of the other (Continue until all buds are attached)



Step 4: Add glittered leaves and tulling





Step 5: Tear a small banner of paper from an old book and add words that express yourself



Step 6: Add tulling or threading and string the wreath


Step 7: Enjoy your creation!
