The wonders of Facebook

P.S. I love this blog

For some crazy awesome crafting 
Here is a fantastic example:

Welcome to Mixed Media 101.  I’m totally roped into RHINESTONES and ROPE! This unexpected combo makes for a fun and chic dynamic duo.  Combine hard and soft textures, dull and sparkly accents, layering materials in sporadic and whimsy swirls.  
Swirl and glue your rope, Knot and snip ends, dazzle with rhinestones, slip on your earring wire, and you have a phenomenal pair of earrings!  (PS- try for lots of decorative metallic rope options).
Expect the unexpected, and you will be pleasantly pleased!  After all, fashion should be fun! Throw out the rules, mix and match till your little heart desires.
Class dismissed!

P.S. I'm so spray painting

rainy day.

Its a bit wet in the lowcountry today
thats okay though
I love a rainy day
It gives me the perfect excuse to snuggle up
(while the laundry is going hopefully)

a bit of earth

its kinda a secret that I was born in San Francisco
~I'm not ashamed by any means~
but it kinda knocks my southern status just a bit*
your not even really considered a local unless your born in the city I live in now
South Carolinians take their native status very seriously

the last time I visited California
I was a little girl
and my parents took me to the City Lights Bookstore
I picked out The Secret Garden
which I promptly devoured on the plane ride home

Check out this bite sized
Secret Garden 
a little Etsy love

Apple Terrarium No.104

~available here~

to brighten your day

a little pick me up

A house without books is like a room without windows. ~Heinrich Mann

I love Charleston in the fall
humidity disappears
 weather is near perfect
 night air is crisp
 days are sunny and warm
The Charleston County Library has a yearly book sale
~that totally rocks my socks off~
Tens of thousands of books
starting as just $1.00

I seriously plan my week around this book sale
I think the smell of old books
lures me in

a Bed for Lulu

Lulu loves a good nap

But she is a terror in bed- 

under the covers
stretched out between our legs
Sometimes even with her little head on my pillow
*cute as that is*
Its not overly comfortable
 we have been looking for a pet bed

~I think she would look especially cute on this~
Main product photo of Shark! Bean Bag Cover

I think my little shark bait might really like this

Matt *hearts* Kristen

it has been quite a year for weddings among my friends
*and family*

Matt and Kristen have always been the cutest couple
and their wedding was so very them
They are creative and so very, very fun!

*i love these*

the photobooth was amazing!

Congratulations to Kristen and Matt

I love you guys!

Dear Savannah.

(polaroid fun) 

Oh Georgia how I love to visit you!
you are just close enough to drive up for the day
~and what a lovely drive it is too~

Thank you Savannah for being such a lovely city
the people were so nice
offering to take our picture in the square

We discovered the amazing little Cafe Ambrosia 
where we had a tasty lunch
*I highly recommend the Baguette Blanch*
with an Orangina

I love a good road trip
the company is key
Jordan and Shanelle are characters

(their best mannequin impression)

Shanelle just moved to South Carolina
*we have taken it upon ourselves to show her around*
We might already be planning our next adventure
