Glow in the dark Skull&Crossbones silly band earrings me
 
Fancy up me hearties. Yo ho!  This pair of glow-in-the-dark silly band skull earrings are sure to be the life of ye party and the highlight of me mates day.  These jewels would have been the perfect treasure to shiver me timbers at Beatrice’s Pirate party!
 
These pirate earrings from Black Feather Studios are as one-of-a-kind as the artist, who just launched the etsy store. I am be a huge fan of this young girl. My love goes waaaayyyy back to when she was a baby girl — and, used to come play with my sister, my dog and I at the beach. I am so impressed with her work. I can’t believe she can do this…the mediums she uses (like snake vertebrae) are naturally, ecclectically cool while the jewelry is feminine and pretty.
 
Congratulations, Black Feather Studio. Your shop is unique and beautiful…just like you and your sweet mama. Kudos!
 
 
Love. Never. Fails.
 
When in doubt and blue, I have to remind myself. What a pretty reminder.
 
 

 

…these monograms made out of sailing flags. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by a different flag in this shared room. 

Isn’t that cool? I love it!  

I love these monograms, the artist that made them, and the mama who put them in her babies room.

All around lots of love, nautical love, LOVE. Sailing away with lots of kudos. :)

  Lilly came to visit last week while Amanda and Jon went to D.C. for the weekend. Actually, they went toJon’s sister Jessica’s wedding.  Four WHOLE days away from home. Lucky sister, right? 

Mom and I took the girls to Free Spirit Pottery one afternoon.  If you are looking for something fun and free to do in the ‘boro with small children Free Spirit  is a great idea. They give babies a complimentary plaque.  It is totally 100% free.  You can opt for a hand print or a foot print.  We were hoping for a hand print; however the girls had something else in mind.  After trying the hands a few times we finally surrendered.  We used their feet.  Apparently, after a certain age babies like to curl their fingers. 

You may think this would be a short trip.  Rather, it took us between 1 -2 hours to pick out the paint colors, try the hands SEVERAL times, get the girls painted and then washed, etc.  It was a fun afternoon!

Would You Like Some Paint on Your Face?

Lilly Gets Her Hand Painted.  Take 1.

 

Pressing Lilly’s Finger on the Plaque.  Take 2.

 

Okay. Okay, We Will Use The Foot.

I haven’t made it to one of these yet; but, I keep putting it on my calander.  It sounds like fun.  This is a cut and paste from a flyer:
