Treasures found at JJ"s Designs & Boutique

My new favorite shop, JJ just has the best taste and is a gifted designer. I found her shop by acident one day while out junking in Justin, Texas. Yes thats the town where you can get the cowboy boots! JJ designs some great boots too! I  walked in not knowing what to many pretties, and BLING ! Yes Judy I said Bling!
After I noticed the bling I  noticed she carried clothes! Miss Me jeans and darling tops. You can find Cowgirl theme and Vintage feeling frocks. I had so little time....I had to get something! 

What a comfortable top, I can't stop wearing it. Its amazing the belt was flattering even though I have extra lbs from the holidays.

I went back a few weeks later and found this beautiful little dress. I wear it with leggings and can't wait till Summer when my legs will be shaved and tan.

If you are in the DFW metroplex its worth a trip to Jusin for a visit to JJ's. Theres an Antique trading post around the corner and they have a great spot for lunch in the back!

Stamping for Mother's Day

Last year I tried my hand at stamping. I made all the women in my family a necklace with their First Borns Birth Date , commemorating the day they became Mom's. I added some old lace and vintage pieces to finish it off.

If you have never stamped you can find some instructions on Youtube. My favorites are Roma Buchanans. She sells all the supplies you need in her Etsy shop Romazone.  Rather then cut my own discs I just buy them. These went so quick and were very satisfing!

A Note for Kerri

Something special to wear with a plain black dress during a choir performance. I used old Rosary Beads, new crystals and formed the clef note and findings in silver. James Avery makes a beautiful Clef Note pendent and it inspired me to try. I ended up making them for some of my daughters friends.
