Chardon, OH... I love it here. I've been here a little over 3 years now and I am still stunned by the amount of snow that falls right here on this little town. Last year the papers reported that we had more snow here, in Chardon, than Alaska had. I'm remembering that article as I look out to see drifts of snow that are almost a foot high. Since it's early in the season, I can still say that it looks pretty... the way it coats the trees and the rooftops. Come talk to me again a the end of December and we'll see how pretty I think it looks :) ( I talked to a friend who live 1/2 hour away and it rained there yesterday)

Brenda is a local artist who also has a store open on Etsy called Bdoodlez. She makes beautiful cards and tags and lives right here in Chardon. Check out her store by clicking the Bdoodlez link above.
Thanks for stopping in again and hope all of the fellow Chardon residents are enjoying the snow... again!! :)

I forgot to do the Friday special! Things have been pretty hectic here the past week. My basement flooded... the ceiling in the bathroom literally fell down, Amelia had 2 school projects, I had an errr, 3 day disagreement with the bank, it snowed 10 feet (well, maybe not 10)... this by no means is me complaining! It's just been hectic. One of those weeks that you thank God that you have a basement to flood, a ceiling over your head to come crashing down, a beautiful child an A+ school right down the street a bank to argue with :) and the beauty of freshly fallen snow. Anyway... I blame this on the reason I forgot to post the special today.
Due to my oversight, the special will go all weekend... good through Sunday at 11:59PM you can have free shipping on anything in my store! yay :)
I'll either refund your shipping or send you a revised invoice. Whichever you would prefer. Just mention the blog sale in the comments during checkout and the shipping is on me.
Have a great weekend!

I did it... I bought an online ad... and I am so happy with it! It's here http://smidge.ca/ I worked with the owner of the site, Kat to accomplish this. She was wonderful to work with and I think the ad is very unique and pretty. Thanks Kat!
I added some holiday jewelry to my site today. It's the Sparkly Dress Up necklace, earrings and bracelet. I love Swarovski crystals lately!

Today only you will receive 10% off on these earrings! These are made with vintage glass that I put in a vintage setting and then attached some new things like the filigree and Swarovski crystal. If you purchase these today, I will refund the 10% back into your paypal account.
Thanks for checking the blog today and have a great weekend!

I listed many new things today, but I have to say that these are my favorite of the day! Many layers of patina were applied to these to make them this pretty, pretty shade. Fun and funky! ;)
