This Week

This Thursday I lost my grandmother to cancer.  She had been fighting this painful disease for some time now, so I am at peace knowing she is in a better place.  She will certainly be missed.

Monday night I was invited to bring my jewelry to a Ladies Night Out event and had a table next to 3 of my favorite jewelry ladies-3 Divas Studio!  Their display put mine to shame, and they have really fun, easy, boho style jewelry.  They only gave us a small 6 foot table space, so it's hard to do alot with that, but here's how 3 Divas set theirs up:

That's Rhonda and Connie, 2 of the 3 Divas.  Love them!!

My husband took me out to the movies this week.  I wanted to see Bridesmaids since the second I saw the first preview on T.V.  It was hillarious!!  I loved it.  Don't get me wrong, I love a good chick flick cry your eyes out kind of movie, but we need more movies like this for women.  We like a good laugh too!  It was a little bit raunchy, a little romantic, and super funny. 

Remember when I asked you for your opinions on a fabric for my lamp shade here?  Well the fabric finally came in this week and I love it!  But, I found another fabric online that I really like now and am not sure if I should order it also to see what I like better.  This is the fabric that arrived this week:

And this is the other fabric that I found this week which is starting to make me second guess the polka dot:

What do you think??  Now I am really torn between the two!

Anyway, I am getting ready to head out to have a nice girl's day that involves my Mom, my sister, and a pedicure!  Woohoo!  Hope you all have a nice weekend as well!



  1. I want to see that movie so bad! I love the bottom fabric. I think its a little more interesting and geometrical.

  2. Awww! You are our *fave* jewelry girl! I'm loving the necklace I bought from you last week and will send a picture of me wearing it sometime soon!

    My vote is for the polka dots..enjoy your girls' day!

  3. i'm so sorry about your grandma...

    i still like the polka dots!

    my mom keeps saying i need to see looks funny

  4. I like the bottom fabric :) It is simple and crazy all in one, so it's perfect to add anywhere :)

  5. I like the second fabric-much more interesting movement! I'm sorry about your grandmother. I'm glad she can rest now.

  6. I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost my grandmother to cancer a few years ago. While it's really sad, it is good to know they're not suffering.

    Also, I went to see Bridesmaids tonight. Soooo funny!

  7. Rachel I'm so sorry about your grandmother, it is never fun. Love the pic from the girls night out!

  8. I am so sorry to hear about your grandma! :(

    I'm glad your liked Bridesmaids...I thought it was a great movie too! :)

  9. They're both great, you can't lose. My personal pick is the polka dots.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother, but I'm glad she's not in pain anymore. Thinking of you!

  10. Sorry to hear about the loss of your grandma. I lost my Buppa back in December and miss him a lot. I hope your family and friends are surrounding you with comfort.

    I am typically a polka dot girl...but in this case I vote for the new find! Very unique.

  11. hey Rachel!

    I hope your family is doing well.

    I want to see photos of your jewelry display! I'm sure it looked fabulous.

    I went to see Bridesmaids last night. I think Dougie's sister was my favorite haha.
    Talk to you soon!
