Charleston Market!

Every Saturday we head to the local market...

*we go to... support local and our community farms.
*we go to... see our friends and neighbors.
*we go because... brunch at "Market Fresh Brunch" is sooooo good!!!
*we go so ...we can sip freshly squeezed lemonade under the shade.
*we go to ...relax and enjoy the day.
*we go because... we love Charleston, South Carolina!

*Oh...and we go so I can sift through my cookbook and choose a birthday cake for my sweetie.

THIS one looks PERFECT!!!

I still need cherries for that cake though...

Vanity Bench Makeover with Dolce!!

Fabulous fabric makes me want to create and Tanya Whelan's "Dolce" line is so incredibly fabulous.
Her designs are some of my favorites!!

{Me out with sister, shopping for fabric and "inspiration" for a vanity bench makeover!}

I went with this pink and orange geometric number. LOVE it!! Accompanied with a coat of fresh white paint---my little vanity bench will soon be fabulous!!

Fabulous "Dolce" fabric by: Tanya Whelan

Sister shopping and being inspired. I quickly reprimanded her to..."Put that jewelry down, we make our own jewelry!!! ;)

I'll post "before + after" photos of my little vanity bench makeover---fashioning the new "Dolce" next week.

I hope you ALL have a lovely weekend.
See you on Monday!

Fabulous weddings and such...

After my "vacation" from blogging and a jewelry hiatus, I am finally back!!

It's been a whirlwind these past couple of months. My sister was married last week and I was her "right hand girl" the entire time. Through all of the preparations and planning, we grew even closer than I had ever imagined. It was a marvelous wedding (we are seriously considering becoming fabulous wedding planners because we have mad wedding planning skills!!)

My sister, Susie, is my best friend and being by her side as her Matron of Honor was, well....Truly an HONOR!

{Pleas NOTE: She only became a Suzilla once the entire time. She came up with that name herself. So clever. Bridezilla + Susie = Suzilla.} ;)

Here's another shot of the happy couple. She was GORGEOUS to say the least. A natural beauty. ...And her new hubby, let me just say that our family is thrilled to have him be a part of it now!!

Congratulations you
Charleston Love Birds!!!

ANNOUNCEMENT!!! This is just the beginning of seeing some of my lovely sister, Susie, as we are "partnering up" and she will be working with me on jewelry and a bridal line for trade shows (We have a trade show coming up this JUNE!) and boutique orders to boot. You might even get to meet her, as she will be guest blogging from time to time and help me keep this lil' old blog going!! I have the intentions of some guaranteed weekly posts---NOT the usual "annual posts"--hahah!!)

We have a lot of plans coming up and I am so excited to share them you YOU via blog-land!

See you soon!
