You hold my heart.

A new night light I've created for Valentines Day. Just listed it in my etsy shop

I created this light from a collage I created on my computer and then printed the image on my HP printer. The image is encased between two pieces of glass (3" X 2.5") and then soldered (with a lead free solder). This sweet light looks really cute when lit up.

Plastic Animals

A few weeks ago I was in the mood to snap some photos. So I rounded up some of my son's plastic zoo animals, dinosaurs and two of my old iron banks. I am really pleased with how they turned out...I think that they would be a GREAT addition to any little boys room, or any room for that matter. I listed two of them on etsy the other day ( and I plan to list them all eventually.

I never know if my photos are any good...I just know that I like them. Please let me have your feedback!

HELP...I have a t-shirt addiction!

OK...It all started when I received a t-shirt that I had longed for from my sister Abby for Christmas. She had my name for Christmas...and I instructed her it would be easy to shop for me, because all she had to do was take a peek at my etsy favs! One goodie on my list was a wonderful t-shirt called "Inventing Toast".

I was so very happy when I unwrapped this super shirt! I love, love it! So...I also got money for Christmas and I decided that I HAD to have more of these quirky shirts. Today I bought three more...yay! Here they are...

Have I made you an addict? You can find these quirky, wonderful shirts at LookForFiddleheads.

I would love to collect them all...wouldn't you?
