. i want .

..   my camera screen broke a few weeks ago and it's been SO annoying to use without the option of adjusting the settings and playing back my shots. i'm sending it in soon to be fixed but until then, i have a really bad case of wanting. 

..  i want a professional photographer at my disposal .. haa haa!

.. i want a studio of my own to work from ( kicking the two year old out of his room didn't go so well )

.. i want a bigger/better background for my photos

.. i want to "be cool" like the ladies here:

I know, I'm a little bit silly today...

...   all of these ladies are simply amazing  ...

..  i aspire to be as successful  .. 

. i admire their creativity and hard work .

.. a new work space ..

Although my third born is still a baby (almost two) I just moved him out of his crib and put him in The Brothers room. Bad Mom? Maybe. BUT... I "need" a new work space. Our house has three bedrooms so the third bedroom has been on my mind for awhile. If all goes as planned, I am reclaiming it for my own :)
Wish me luck, folks! 
Hopefully my blonde haired wild child will do well tonight and LOVE his new sleeping arrangement.  

 ..   yes, that's tape holding up my sewing machine... it does the trick. My machine was a gift from my mom in junior high when I started 4-H sewing classes with the fabulous Melissa Wingo of Evelyn Fields   thanks mom! I hope you feel you've got your moneys worth;)   .. 


.. polka dot {{ love }} ..

..  a very sweet friend gifted Poppy and Pearl Co. with vintage ribbon and zippers  ..

i'm in love with this red and white polka dotted ribbon!

one inch cuff just added to the shop :)

cheers to a lovely friday!

Isn't wonderful to take scrap metal and turn it into something beautiful!

Alicia is also being featured on The Bee Hive Giveaway this week!! Check it out to win a fabulous SMD prize :)

She has kindly made cuffs and rings for Poppy and Pearl Co. I am so thrilled to be able to buy these upcycled beauties locally. I've added a few to my etsy store and listed this one today.  :)
