Cool mornings, Fall weddings…

For the last two mornings here in New Jersey the weather has been cool. Some might even say a little chilly by July standards, but I love it! I don’t say this in public too often but I’m a big fan of cold weather. Bring on the snow and chilly temps and I’m a happy camper.
The cooler weather has me thinking of fall with the rich colors of burgundy, gold, orange and merlot. And with that in mind I created two new Wedding Vow Book and Box sets. Leave a comment and let me know which one you like best.

A snowy day….

The first snow of 2015 is falling today and everything is covered in a blanket of glittery white.  The light reflects off of the snowflakes and makes them sparkle and shine.  Tomorrow the sky will will be a beautiful pale blue….the perfect backdrop for a winter bride!


I created this one-of-a-kind wedding vow books and matching keepsake box set to capture that dazzling wintery feel and help you preserve those special words of love forever.

Etsy challenge


Etsy recently posted a challenge to its shop owners. They wanted us to describe our shop in 140 characters or less. It was much harder than I thought it would be, but after pondering and writing…..and rewriting, this is what I came up with: “A romantically- whimsical shop filled with beautiful, one-of-a-kind, hand crafted, paper, lace and ribbon covered keepsake boxes, journals and  more.” If you have a few spare minutes I would love it if you would stop by my shop and take a look around, then leave a comment here and let me know if I got it right.

Snow days…

This week my little part of the world was blanketed with a layer of ice and snow. We were lucky, (although not everyone might feel that way) that we only ended up with about 8 inches of the white, fluffy stuff instead of the predicted 14!  Although the temperatures were in the single digits with wind chills that felt like -11 degrees, I have to say that the pristine, snow-covered ground was incredibly beautiful to look at! The way it sparkled and glittered when the sun shone on it was magnificent and made me remember what I loved about winter.
But for those of you who yearn for the warmth of the summer sun and the smell of gentle, salty ocean breezes, I have created this pretty, pastel keepsake box. It’s hand-cut and pieced beach-themed design brings back the warm days and it is just the right size to hold all the treasures that you might collect that will remind you of those summer days!
