There are so many things out there in Etsy land, that I get plum tickled when I see something that I truly love. More often than not, I see things that I like, or think about buying maybe possibly if I’m bored kinda thing, or a “Oh, I could make that!” So I just want to show you all (the handful that I entertain or possibly bore, lol) a few finds that I’m jonesin’ for at the moment =)

From the undoneclothing store are these awesome babies!

Five Pack of Tape Measure Earrings in Various Colors

Tape Measure Watch in Pink

Tape Measure Watch in White

Aren’t they just simplistically awesome yet could fit someone to a tee =)

I like the look of these as well. The little gears in the middle are old watch gears. They would be just as cute without the gears as well.

HOLIDAY SALE White Gears wood tape measure earrings

Is this bracelet not the epitome of beautification Winking smile

Steampunk Scissor Bracelet- Antique Silver Ox

Welp, that concludes my post-Christmas wish list, lol. My perusing of Etsy is over as I get back to reality and go convince Kenna that the kitchen floor is not the happening place to be. I don’t know why she seems to think that it’s funner in their than in here where I can see her.

Until next time…

Christmas is coming!!!!!

Oh man, I’m soooo excited for Christmas this year. Our lil runt is 15 months old now and I know she’s going to be excited but for now, we’re itching for the day and she doesn’t even know what’s coming, lol.

We haven’t put up a Christmas tree though, because where we normally put the tree is now Kenna’s play corner. I just hate to move her toys and then when she wants to ‘play’ with the Christmas tree, she gets in trouble. I can just see her baffled look, “Well, it’s my corner!” Soooo, we’re going to buy a small tree to put up on the bar and next year I think she’ll be old enough to understand why it’s not her toy corner for the month. Buuut on a side note, hopefully we can eliminate said toy corner. Travis and I were talking just this morning about building her a toy box!!!! This is a huge feat for him. He is NOT a carpenter but a mechanic. Two completely different spectrums, lol. I think it will be fun though. Anywho, I digress. Sunday night, Kenna crashed extremely early. I’m talking about a nap at 4ish, wake her up at 5ish, she goes back to sleep 6ish! She was not having us trying to keep her awake (so she wakes us up at 3:30 a.m. to ‘play’). So, I had a chance to hang some Christmas decorations. I got up our door hanger, the Christmas cross stitch and samplers, and a few knick knacks. No pictures of said decor sadly but it does have me in the mood to craft some and to get some projects going that I already have the supplies for!

I think this would be a great idea for the living room!

I love the idea above because I was just telling Trav when we were out in the craft shed that I wanted to drag out the tiny ornament balls to put in my little cloche I bought from the thrift store last month. I just need to spray paint the base first.

This is so neat! Glued ornaments to disc, took out metal hanger, added blooms. So simple and still pleasing to the eye. From


Also from, they took a stick, drilled tiny holes, inserted pipe cleaners. Very thrifty!

Man, I can’t wait! We actually have most of our Christmas shopping done, which is a first for us so now it’s a waiting game and it is making me that more anxious, lol.

Happy holidays!
