It's A Wrap

Every year in December I venture out to Greensboro along with my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and neices to a fabulous jewelry and accessory show for the trade. It's a huge room full of vendors selling sometimes tacky, mostly gorgeous jewelry, scarves, bags and accessories at wholesale prices. Women that are buying for their small boutiques and gift shops show up with huge roll-away bags that they drag from booth to booth trying to find the latest fashion trends.

This year I spent most of my time in line, so I didn't get to see everything I wanted and I could kick myself for not purchasing one of the cutest things I saw at the show - one of these adorable head wraps, modeled by Mike's niece here (while it was snowing!!) I think she paid maybe $7.00 for it and it wraps around you head and buttons in the back - how cute is this?? (And how pretty is she????)


I'm not sure of the company that made the one above, but I was able to find some similar ones online at Etsy. They don't have as much embellishments, but they are still pretty great.You can also put them around your neck for a cozy neck wrap. They would make a great Christmas present for just about any female in your life. It's a fun and different way to snuggle up and still be stylish!

Anyone have one of these? Where did you find it? Has anyone seen them in the department stores yet? Even better - anyone tried to crochet one on their own? I'm tempted to give it a whirl...but I haven't crocheted in years.


  1. Ohhhhh....I really want that!!! It's sooo cute (and so is she!). Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wish I did. That is so cute & so is she.

  3. I don't have one (yet), but saw them at several stores in Old Town Spring - a unique shopping area in Spring, TX (just north of Houston), they are quite cute and this is from a girl who normally NEVER wears hats!

  4. by they way, they were much more than $7 where I saw them, so she got a DEAL!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
