August Etsy Round-Up

I’m recovering from my whirlwind weekend at the craft show (there will be a recap post probably Wednesday) so today’s an easy ‘look at the pretties!’ post. 🙂 I’ve got two treasuries today. The first is August-themed, using one of August’s birthstones as the inspiration. The second is just green and alive and summery. Enjoy.

June Etsy Round-Up

The first Etsy collection I have for your this month is one that reminds me of summer. When I think of summer, I think of lemonade, blue skies, grass, and the outdoors, even though I live in the city. So this collection is color-themed on those points, with an urban touch. This second treasury is all about where June got it’s name. The name comes from Juno, queen of the Roman gods (Hera is the Greek version). She was wife to Jupiter, and goddess of marriage. Her symbols include a peacock and a goatskin cloak.   What does June make […]

What I Wore: Daydreaming

This month, I will be (sporadically) participating in Blogtember with Jenni. Today’s prompt: If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do? If I could take three months off and do anything, with money not being a factor, I would travel. I would travel a LOT. I’d split it up and do 3 weeks in the British Isles (focusing on Ireland & Scotland), 3 weeks in the Mediterranean (Italy & Greece specifically), 3 weeks in Australia, and 3 weeks visiting my family here in the States. I would […]

The Dog Days of Summer

This month’s Etsy round-up is all about the pooches. Sienna is currently curled up in a ball right by my feet, doing cute dog snores – not an unusual place for her to be during my work day. She’s been super cuddly lately, and seems healthier & happier since we switched dog food brands. This month’s round-up is inspired by her, and I’m eyeing several of these pieces with her in mind. Edited to add: I just found out today is also National Dog Day – how appropriate! Dog Days of Summer by Dragonflight Dreams Sand Washed Turquoise Native… Miasclosetshop […]

Creative Ways to Stay Cool

This originally appeared as a guest post over on The Streeters Unlimited. via As you know, readers, I live in the great state of Texas. Texas is a lot of things, some good and some not so good. But one thing not up for debate is that Texas summers are HOT. 100+ degree days are the norm here. So it’s understandable that I’m always on the look out for creative ways to keep me and my loved ones cool during the summer. Today I thought I’d share some of those with you. Fun with Ice Cubes No, I’m not going […]

What I Wore: Summer in December

Well, it almost didn’t happen, but I managed to squeeze in a What I Wore post for December. Yesterday was amazingly nice out – 71 degrees, sunny with blue skies. This is why I live in Texas. 🙂 It called for a summery outfit, and I went with a nice breezy dress and sandals. And I finally got a chance to wear my new peacock scarf that’s been sitting on the shelf for a few weeks. Granted, it only stayed in my hair for about 20 minutes because my hair just can’t hold on to things like this, but it’s […]
