Etsy Treasuries...

Oh MY! 
So we have been doing etsy for a couple of months and I love browsing through the treasuries, but I didn't know who picked them, or if you had to be in a certain group or whatever. Imagine my excitement when I found out I could make one... or a ton! So while I was waiting for my husband to get home from work before we went to Easter dinner (at my parents... and yes it was DELICIOUS!) and I made my FIRST one. I titled it  "Not Dorothy's Shoes". It is filled with RED VINTAGE SHOES! I got to go through hundreds them & pick my favorites, which can I just say, was hard to narrow down. It kinda felt like shopping but with out spending money. FABULOUS! 
Well I had so much fun with that one that I made another one. hehehe "As I Look Out the Window..."  This one is filled with really pretty photography and romantic pieces. I love it... It actually makes me want to look out the window in hopes I will see such beauty. 
I have to admit, I am addicted. Like I need something else to occupy my time. :-) Let me know what you think <3

That's what's going on over here. I hope you are all doing fabulously! 

 I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Easter.

I'm Backkkkkk!

My Gosh- I can't believe it's been so long. 
Well to give you a brief recap... our little Maci Melina turned 3 in March! Time sure does fly. We think she is going to be a fashion designer. She will only wear skirts and tutus. Even over jeans. The fuller the better. She changes at least four times a day. She thinks that play dress up shoes with a heel are appropriate. You can often find her dancing in front of the mirror. And I would love to know where she gets her dance moves because none of the shows she watches move like that!!! She is quite the little character. 

So, as fabulous as the weekend was, we got a ton of rain. This, on top of all the snow we still had, caused our river to flood, then our road and then our house. We were evacuated by the fire department at about 2:00 am. Thank God for them because we didn't even know it was happening. Although we live right beside a river, it has never rose high enough to worry. Here are some photos of the aftermath...

See the computer tower sitting on the chair? Yeah- well just a few hours before it was submersed in water. 
Hence, my absence :(

My yard

The river is usually MUCH lower than this.

Someone tried to drive through the water and lost control. Thankfully, she was okay, her car... not so much.

This lovely body of water is actually an open field. These photos don't even begin to describe what it was before the water receded. It was one hot mess! It was surely an experience... one I hope to never have to go through again. But thankfully, we were all okay and it could have been so much worse. So that is what I have been up to, more or less... recovering. But there was a rainbow after the storm... I redid my whole kitchen and living room. And I LOVE it!!! See? Everything happens for a reason. God must have been like "Gurrllll... you need to do something with this house!" 
I would have taken a much more subtle hint, but He is funny like that ;-)
What have YOU been up to? I will have to stop by and see.

I have this larger one in my house.

Vintage Shirt Fronts

These just fascinate me- I mean- aren't they uncomfortable?!?! 
That feel like cardboard. :-/
Let's think of something else to do with them... Suggestions?!?!

Assorted Vintage Shirt Collars
$6ea @MStG

Again- not thinking these were comfortable.
But they do look fabulous with jewels and rhinestones...
Would also make a cute necklace or bracelet {hmmmm}

Vintage Derby Hat
$25 @MStG

Don't you love vintage men's hats? 
They made them look so distinguished.

Vintage Suitcase

I love vintage suitcases so much more than modern day ones. Yes- they were heavier ;-) but they have so much character and they look awesome stacked {as my mom does} Can I just tell you that I don't even get a chance to buy them at markets because she snatches them up with the quickness!

Like she doesn't have enough already?!?!?!

It's Tuesday!

Is it? 
Because I am at the point where one day just rolls into the next 
and it always seems like a Monday.
But I do know that Tuesday is Bloggers' Bodega! Whoo Hoo!!!
We had a little issue this morning with the linky, but we are back on board.

We will be putting on some vintage Valentine's Day cards on Etsy.
(They should be up by the end of today.)

I just love the old ones don't you? 
They seem to be so much more fun then the modern ones.
I wonder if my kids will think the same thing about things now.

I hope your week is starting off fabulously!!
Hugs and Besos,


Oh my adorable, precious baby <3
So Kissable and Sweet <3

And then she goes into the garbage and does this.
Really?!?! Sour cream? Not my idea of a snack. :-)
<3 She's still super cute though!!! <3

Lazy Sunday

Today started as a typical Lazy Sunday, cuddling with my princesses watching cartoons. Then the girls got antsy and wanted to destroy the house. So instead of following their mess, cleaning up after them, I figured I would try and get some work done. Which THEN turned into working on my blog, which was in dire need of revamping. I added some new pages that I am REALLY hoping I can keep up on. 
I was so excited to see all the new fonts Blogger had added to the template!!!
I wish they would add more font options to the actual post though. Does anyone know how to change it to something more exciting?

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.
