jewelry love


wowzers...this week two of my favorite jewelry gals 
have new stuff to sell...

The Farm Girl Paints shop is OPEN! 
I love my leather cuffs, I'm drooling over the new choices! 
visit Becky's shop HERE 

Nickel and Suede has just launched their 
new fall line....goodness gracious 
I love their leather wraps and jewelry, too....

these earrings are so light and feathery, 
seriously you don't even know you're wearing them!

I ordered the large, 
they are BIG but I LOVE them...

is it fall yet?

one of my sweet friends dropped off this bale of straw 
for my front porch...(I just love her)...
mind you, it's still triple digits here in Cali! 

I thought for a quick second, "is it too early?" 

nah... shoot, they are selling pumpkins already at 
the supermarket....so why not, eh? 

on a side note we were looking for some 
used brick over the weekend 
(news on that project to come soon, it's gonna be cute!)
...at the materials design center they had these pallets
dripping with succulents...omg I love this idea...

this is what we were doing, standing there staring at brick...
it seemed so easy to run down there and just "pick something" 
yikes, I think we will love our choice....but not so easy to pick! 
are you ready for fall? 
is anyone else decorating yet? just a little?

cute cuff

one of my favorite bloggers, Carol, 
sent me this darling pin a while back...

I wanted to get more use out of it so I adhered 

so adorable! 

I've been wearing it with jeans on the weekends 
and 
basic black for work....

ya can't have too many cuffs, right?

classroom chalkboards

I found a cute chalkboard easel at Hobby Lobby
which I quickly took apart and made into TWO 
cute pieces for the classroom... 
cute, eh? 

originally this cutie pie was going to school with me...
(wouldn't it be cute for back-to-school nights and the like?) 
however, once I got it home, I decided I needed to 
keep it in our house :) 

I hope the chalkboard craze never ends....

brownie bites

I made these delicious brownie bites for one of my besties.....


so simple! just bake brownies according to the package directions....
allow them to cool then scoop out a few tablespoons full
and add a filled Hershey's Kiss (I used caramel filled)...

wrap the brownie around the chocolate kiss
and form a ball shape...

melt some candy kwik or melting chocolates and 
drizzle over the brownie bites...

YUM 
place in the fridge for 30 minutes or so and 
serve or gift them....

I used a cute bakery box from Michael's...
can you see the insides of the one cut in 
half next to the box? It didn't last long...
(the non-gifted brownie bites went quickly) 

happy baking :)

it works...

we've been trying out succulents lately...
and they are super cool additions to the garden, but can get pricey...

I'd posted HERE about some clippings and now I'm 
trying to propagate from leaves...

here they are freshly plucked...

and just two weeks later
Whallaaa, little baby buds growing out of the leaves....
omg love it! 

now, you've got to be a patient gardener to wait for the 
propagation to run it's course...I think I can wait...
I'd love to fill up this space with TONS of baby succulents
so it looks like succulent carpet...
happy gardening!
