Dear Husband, 
The chances are slim that you (or anyone else for that matter) will read this post. However, a girl can hope. Mother’s Day is approaching, and I know you can not understand how I can possibly need another pair of earrings. This is a conundrum (LOVE that word) for you. What to get the woman who birthed (painfully, I might add) your two little devils…I mean, angels.
Let me answer..I do not like diamonds, I do not like fine jewelry from Kays..I like old, rusty, dusty earrings that look like they came from zombie infested waters after the apocalypse. If your cute voice inside your head mutters, “who would wear this”, you can safely answer, “Laura would!” Don’t do it out loud. People look at you funny when you talk out loud..whateva„, 
Please put the Kohl’s cash rewards back in the wallet and step away from the their “fine” jewelry department!
Love, ME

I’m a fan of rustic fresh-from-the-apocalypse jewels, and Shipwreck Dandy ((http://www.etsy.com/shop/shipwreckdandy) has some of the best! She’s having a giveaway, so share the love! 

This photo is inspiring me to create a batch of soap with my very own lavender flowers that are growing so well for me. I managed to over water the spearmint and chocolate spearmint, and decided to never garden again. Alas, as soon as I started ignoring my plants and telling them off under my breath, the lavender blossomed! Mischievous little things…

This will soon become my Lavender and Spearmint Shave Soap … with shea butter, cocoa butter and avocado oil.

One of my New Years resolutions was to utilize some of my crafting supplies, and today I had an “attack of the craft.” So, I made myself a beaded necklace with a soft pink druzy that I have had for years, as well as some pale green shell-like beads.

This is my first collage too, beyond the high school collages of Kirk Cameron that lined my locker. I printed out a tutorial for paper dolls, but she took an Alice in Wonderful twist.

The last picture is one of my walls in my bedroom that I rearranged, and the hubs thought the paper dolls might be a little much..but ummm..doesn’t he realize that I’m just getting started!

I just redid one of the walls in my bedroom! I’m excited. :) (Taken with picplz.)

The husband said the dolls were a little much, but can there ever be enough paper dolls?

Stopped by the flea market for a few minutes today, and I fell in love with this 60s kitsch purse/basket/decor. I also picked up this antique photograph (free with the young-uns purchase of $2 Iron Man and Spider Man), because how melancholic it is that this mother got all spiffed up for a picture with her baby in a cornfield, and it ended up in a sad little pile at a flea market?

Yes, I freely admit to hording tendencies.
