Crochet Cup Cozies!! So darn cute!!

Hi there!! Happy middle of the week!
Well you probably seen the peak on my header of these adorable cup cozies a few days ago. 
But here they are! I just listed a few in my Etsy Shop along with a few other holiday goodies!! 

Snuggle up with one of these and keep your beverage warm and your hands cool. Such a wonderful way to personalize and make your coffee cup cute while being eco-friendly too!! 
 *Fits standard coffee house coffee cups, (modeled on Starbucks cups)
*I used an all natural cotton yarn and an acrylic blend for the heart
♥All items made in a smoke-free and clean home♥
*Hand wash & lay flat to dry

I think I might hoard take a few and leave them in the car! I'm planning on giving a few of these as gifts & making a few more to put in my booth at Uptowne Shoppes :) 

Thanks for your sweet visits!!!
Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Warmer Tarts & Pearls

Good evening!
While Luke is watching some football, Jerry curled up in his bed, and cookies baking in the oven, I thought I would write a short post!

Here's a sneak peak of my new warmer tart collection!! 

What do you think!?! 
I'm working on making some cute labels for the outsides of them!
And...... a few treasure that I recently found. 

 So very pretty they are!! 
I just love that floral ring, thought it was so neat!
And a sweet candy cane brooch for the holidays! :) 
The old perfume bottle has already been played with and altered, with some beading and ribbon detail :) 

Hope you all are having a lovely Saturday and have a wonderful day tomorrow!

~Now I'm off to get some chocolate chip cookies out!!

Happy October (Snowtober) lol
One day its pumpkins and fall, the next.......

We had our first snow yesterday! (October 23) Seems really early!! 
But really got me excited for the holidays that are coming!! 
I can't wait for the Christmas season! ~I'm ready to start listening to music and decorating! 
I'm trying to hold out at least until after Halloween!! 

It was really pretty, and kind of weird because normally you don't see leaves still on the trees, with snow. 

It snowed a bit this morning too! 
But it's not sticking around, and I think it's suppose to warm up a little this weekend for us :) 
upper 40s and 50s! 

 Onto some goodies! 

I've been taking a tote full (at least once a week, sometimes twice a week) up to my booth
it's been really fun, refreshing it weekly! Adding new treasures in for someone else to take home and love!
I just love the set of vintage orange juice glasses and pitcher(above picture)....I might have to keep those! So super cute for the summer!

Love this little cart!! Isn't she cute!?!!?
and you can fill it with fun things too!

I'm off to work on a some new crochet items, that I'm excited to show you soon! And I'll be adding some of them to my Etsy Shop!! :) 

Horrraaayyy for almost the holiday season!!! 
Have a fabulous day today!! (:

~New Earrings~

Hi there! Happy new week!
Over the weekend I was able to work on a few new pairs of earrings.....
These were requested by someone; something with black and kind of sparkly ..... 
They hang sooo cute! (Even cuter than on the jar!) Hope she likes them! (: 

Cute snowman earrings! Love their cute faces! 
(Don't they make you smile too!?)

Some Christmas Tree Earrings 

and candy canes too! 

And here's a sneak peak of some jars I'm working on. 
I'm dressing them up as ornaments for a little tree or you can hang them anywhere you'd like! 
Not all of them will be Christmas colors and themed, so many you will be able to keep out all year round! :)
some pretty ribbons that will be going on the jars......
Happy Monday, hope you're having a creative day!!

oh ps.
I forgot to tell the results of our French Toast Morning Breakfast (from the previous post)
It turned out pretty well! 
I just bought some Texas Toast (any thicker bread will work)
we cooked it like normal french toast, and set those aside under a plate and lid to keep them warm. 
Caramelizing the bananas took two tries! Lol... we just put a little water in a small skillet with sugar and let it heat up, then put slices of bananas in. It's kind of a trial and error, our bananas came out a little mushy but weren't too bad. I think next time we'll try frozen bananas and see if that will help.

Then cute the french toast into triangles, add nuts of your choice:: we added walnuts, pistachios, and pecans.
And don't forget the powdered sugar over top of everything!! & yummy syrup! 
If anyone does give it a try, would love to hear if you do!!

Friday Morning Breakfast

Good morning!! 

Last Friday we were out of town for a wedding in St. Louis, Missouri and we found this cute restaurant just a couple blocks away from our hotel. It was called "Rooster," and Oh my goodness was it sooooo good!!! 
I got their freshly homemade french toast bread with caramelized bananas and lots of different nuts, powdered sugar, and yummy syrup. 

{the hubs got the "St. Louis Slinger," it was pretty good too!}
It was such a lovely breakfast and the place was so cute!!! If you're ever in the area, I suggest stopping there and getting something! :) 

So tomorrow morning (Saturday) we are going to attempt our own caramelized banana nut french toast, I'm so excited! I hope it turns out well!! I can already taste it! Yum! 

Hope you all have a fantastic Friday!! 
I'm getting some things ready to take to my booth this afternoon :)
Hugs, Holly

Happy Sweet Day

A very sweet thank you for making my first market day fun and successful!!! 
I sent out all the orders today! :)  I took a few pictures outside, I have flowers in full bloom next to the pumpkins! This normally does not happen! Lol. Last week we went apple picking with my family, we love the Honey Crisps and I had to get some Johnagolds too! They are so sweet, crisp, and yummy! We've been working on our little stack of apples! We're so lucky to have a few orchards really close to our house. I'm hoping to finish these apples off and go get some more! :) I didn't make a pie yet and would love to, so we might be going picking again!  We have some friends getting married this weekend, and we're excited to get to go! It should be a lot of fun!! Are you up to anything fun?? I'm sure hoping I get some crafting time soon! I already have some Christmas ideas in mind!! :) 

Wishing you all a lovely rest of the week and weekend!!
