Good Day All~
I have spent this morning moving rather slowly. I watched the Blackhawks win the first game of the Stanley Cup with some friends and then slept in a little bit today. It is a holiday weekend after all.

Drama Darling was up at a cabin in WI with a friends family and Baby Girl spent the night at a friends house and McDreamy had to work, so I had the house to myself this morning and took advantage.

I listed my newest creation...a RING...on Etsy, very excited about these, they are one of my new favorites. They match my new necklaces and are vintage looking, yet fun and funky to wear with anything. I will be making a lot more!!!!!

Here's the link:

A bird may be known by it's royal song!

I came across this video of Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love" on Kelly Rae's Blog the other day and watched it this morning with my cup of coffee and it was so enlightening I wanted to share it. A must see for all women, I think!

I could not link, so you will have to copy & paste into your browser...

When you have a little free time sit down and watch this video.
I cannot wait for the movie of her book to come out with Julia Roberts, that is a girls night out for sure!

Have a great Memorial Day Everyone~ BBQ, your favorite brew...
and always give thanks, pray for & remember the troops that gave us our freedom!

Your ring is gorgeous! I love the bird collage as well as the rhinestones!

I have read the book and I adore it! I have high hopes for the movie too!

Oh oh....i know i told you that i don't really wear rings very much and now i think i'm going to have to start. i LOVE this (the crown maybe...or the colors...or the setting...or maybe it's just because i'm so in love w/your jewelry!!) You keep out doing yourself girlfriend

i am in LOOOOOVE with the ring.
i think my finger would be very happy wearing it.
im off to etsy to peek.
but first, thank you ever so much for your necklace and the darling pins you sent as well.
i love you and i love your style.
i was so happy that you chose BOTH the hummingbird (which was so thoughtful of you) AND cul*ti*vate!
the butterfly is sleeping on my chest as i type and it makes me thankful for your friendship, your talent and the hope that one day we can meet in person.
{p.s...i linked to your blog on my post today...hope that.s ok}
