This holiday I was so excited to finally get to work on my new baby niece's room. She doesn't have name yet, so I could really personalized it but it's already pretty fabulous!! I started with a warm grey on the wall and painted a mural to coordinate with the fabric I had chosen. I wanted a neutral wall will pops of vibrant colors. I also wanted to put my touch on thing and added buttons and pearls to a hobby lobby chandelier, and repainted a bookcase and lampshade. My mother is an amazing seamstress and made the bedding and curtains! Hope you enjoy :)
|I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE! I added some buttons and pearls to give |
it some pizzaz and character.
|This was an a lamp that had seen better day. So i painted it hot pink and added|
some funky rosettes to tie it into the rest of the room.
|These colorful mirrors are over the changing table. |
My vision is to put a big letter in the middle, but since we don't have a name.... but the mirrors add sparkle and interest and
something for the baby to look at!
|Chevron curtain were the perfect pattern to add to the colors|
|We all know I LOVE buttons so i had to have these button knobs for the closet|

AHHH! I love something colorful and vintagy. It completes me. So when I wanted a new hairpiece to wear to church tomorrow I wanted something a bit off the norm, but big and fabulous! I think I made the perfect one :) The headband is chartreuse with grey and lace flowers, navy and fushia rosettes, a fabric yoyo, and with 3 vintage brooches and a vintage gold button! So many colors, but they go great together. What do you think? I am wearing it with a black dress.

So I finally made some more button headbands! As you already probably know I love buttons...A LOT! I also had a trunk show at my local Fashion's Night Out in an amazing store, Knotting Hill! Had a wonderful evening with great people. I also debuted my new business cards featuring my cupcakes business. ENJOY :)

This is one of my favorite headbands! I wear it ALL the time. It is so simple to make...measure a piece of elastic around your head..sew it into a headband and then sew on buttons! Lots of buttons! It is really easy, and i get tons of compliments every time I wear it. You could even use a headband from the store. Its perfect with a messy ponytail.

Isn't this the perfect Summer Set! I wanted to do something different but that still went with everything. I grabbed some silk chord and fringe and went to work! I wanted to make sure I could wear this with any of my summer outfits so I went to my big mix of beads! I braided the fringe and silk with chain to help balance the weight of the stones. It will look great with a sundress or a
t-shirt and jeans! I love it!
I do not usually make cuffs, but I saw a cuff similar at the Anthropologie and I had to have it, but I did not want to pay the Anthro price, so I made one of my own! It is a mix of jaquard ribbon, silk yoyos, buttons beads and a little bit of everything! I pretty sure my sisters will be asking for one these!!

My friend Jeanne came up with this amazing idea to take vintage hankies and doilies, and make them into fabulously unique headbands and clips! We paired them with silk rosettes, vintage buttons, and lace.I just love them. Enjoy
The following creations are not made with vintage hankies but they are still pretty fabulous!!

So as most of you know I have totally jumped on the cupcake craze! This past Friday my design class went to Washington, LA . We started the day off by visited the yard sale at the Old School House that happens twice a year! I was on the hunt for some old plates andcups to make a tre' fab cupcake stand, and of course I was on the lookout for buttons :) Luckily I was able to find exactly what I wanted...
Here's How I made my cupcake stand!!
Some pretty glass plates and cups!
One of them is a cake plate I got for $2
This one is my favorite with the fleur de lis detail!
Epoxy each layer together according to the directions.
I used a 2 part epoxy.

So I don't usually post tutorials on my site, but I had to share this one! The other evening I made these fabric wall decal frames. I found the perfect place on a
skinny wall that really serves no purpose!
Click HERE for the link.
I thought I'd share a couple of non-jewelry/hair projects I have been working on. This is the arrangement over my bed. I wanted something that took up the whole wall because my bed is not centered on wall. I repurposed 3 odd rectangular canvases in the middle. I covered one in burlap and attached a modge podged J, another in burlap with a birdie on a branch and the other painted with a doily. I love odd and ends so I attached some keys to canvases I found in the Michaels discount section. I found a door knob on sale at hobby lobby (but I think I hung it upside down!) My great grandmother made the large doily and my mother had it in a trunk for years. So I lightly modge podged it to a painted canvas. I also threw in some buttons because they are a must in practically every project I do! I made the large button fleur about a year ago and placed little button on a couple of the other pieces.
