New Graphic Pendants

I had something bad for lunch the other day and was 'you know what' all day long. Now I haven't really eaten the last two days but starting to feel better. Just hate food poisoning!!! So even though I missed all these cool things I wanted to do in the last days, I did finally get some time to start working on these cool pendants that I have been conceptualizing over for a few weeks now. I used some old children's books that I got from the thrift store and cut them up to get the most interesting graphics captured in the frames. I think these are so cool and will look great on a simple necklace. Now I just have to finish them and put them up in my KAILEA shop!

Cool New Bangles!

We went to Lilly's cousin over the weekend to celebrate her 4th Birthday! We had sooooo much fun with a chocolate filled Willy Wonka Party. I wore my own Embroidered Felt Bangle like I now offer in our shop and my sister-in-law loved it so much that I had to leave it with her. I know it has a good home there ;)

Fresh Friday Finds

Such elegant and comfy looking Spats! That is the first time I ever heard that word, but I love the entire package already. I know I would feel like a queen in these walking up and down the street!

And here is another one for the enamel lovers e.g. me! This little Necklace reminds me of a porcupine or something. So cute! I actually got to trade with the wonderful seller of the enamel bangles I featured 2 weeks ago. My sister said they already came and I can't wait to see them!!! I'm so happy she actually traded with me so I can own those bangles.

I couldn't believe these little Hand Soaps when I saw them! Creepy at first, but oh so cute! They would be so perfect for a Powder Room. If guests would actually use them? That's the only question I have!

Fresh Friday Finds - Valentines Day Preview!

Hey, it's Valentines Day tomorrow and I got carried away!!!

You might know already of my love for enamel. And even I had to think: "Oh, these are soooooo cute!" when I saw theseHeart Earrings. And I'm not that into hearts, but these here just are a bit sophisticated and flirty. Wouldn't mind getting these for Valentines (Is it too late to say that now?!)

Need to write a few Valentines cards? I would love to get thisDeer Stationary. So cute and yet subtle. That would bring a smile to anyone's face!

How about this sweet Love Birds Bowl? Getting breakfast in bed and discovering these little birds at the end of your cereal? I know, I'm dreaming, but it would be a great Valentine's treat!
Well, I can't wait to hear your heartwarming Valentine's Day story. Comment if you got one!

Fresh Friday Finds

I love finding imaginative and cute items like this Pencil Case. It makes me smile every time I look at it (so I'm smiling big time right now ;) And all the proceeds from the sale (minus shipping & handling) will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation ( So you can feel good all around getting this little alligator!

Another unbelievable find I made this week (I'm so excited!!) are these Enamel Bracelets. I love, love, love enamel and I love bracelets. So a combination as nice as this here has me jumping off my seat! And there are so many more combinations and colors to choose from in her store. These would look fabulous on my wrist ;)

I used to have this style of Alarm Clock as a kid and just loved it! Always wished I had another. Of course, this one is so much nicer and the graphic is so summery.
Even though it's hard to get up these cold winter days, this alarm clock would sure get me out of bed.

What Tarot Card are You?

I just came across this quick tarot card test. It's fun and I always knew I'm an empress ;) Find out what you are!

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
