In sticking with my #SpreadTheKindness theme, I need to share with you all my fabulous new necklace which I recently purchased at a vendor show where I had set up Shelbee’s Shoppe. My table was right across from a wonderful lady named Valerie who is the owner of Queen Thumb Creations. Valerie’s shop specializes in “handcrafted rustic decor of a wide variety ranging from live plant terrariums, faerie garden accessories, seasonal decor, and driftwood art”. She also cultivates these adorable Japanese algae balls and sells them in a variety of glass jars, some so tiny you can wear them as a pendant. I ended up purchasing one to wear around my neck and one in a lightbulb shaped jar for my boys.
For a woman who has never been able to keep a plant alive in all of my 42 years of life, these little plant balls are ideal. According to Valerie, you cannot kill these things unless you are really trying to kill them! You basically just need to change their water every now and then. That’s where I was sold. Plus they are super cool and unique pieces to own. And you get to wear nature in the form of jewelry. How amazing is that? For more details on the care and the how they grow, please contact Valerie via her Facebook page (Queen Thumb Creations). And check out how I styled my fun new necklace below!
Can you tell it’s cold outside?! ‘Tis the season in the North Country of Upstate New York. It is cold. It is snowy. And it will remain this way from now until early May! So much for cute shoes! All shoes get ruined around here.
And let me tell you, I nearly froze my bum off trying to get photos of my dress without my cozy cardigan!
Dress: Old Navy (This print seems to be sold out.)
Boots: Cato Fashions (Sold Out).
Necklace: Queen Thumb Creations.
Cardigan, Tights, Scarf, Mittens: All have been hiding in my closet for quite a long time.
