BIG Shop Update

My week long Thanksgiving break really had my creative juices flowing by the time I got back home.  The past two days I have been creating new items for "The Peacock Shop".  I thought I would share a few with you:

 My new favorite: Blue and White Juice Glasses...or they would also make great votives.

Peacock Feather Juice Glasses

Prissy Peacock Teacup and Saucer

I also added a new Winter Peach Wrap to my other shop:

We had a ball

...at the ball!  I have ALWAYS been a girly girl.  I remember being 4 years old and my incentive for cleaning up my toys would be that I could play "dress up" when I got it all cleaned.  I remember stuffing clothes in my drawers as fast as I could and then running to tear into the dress up box.
Not much has changed since then.  I still reward myself for accomplishing tasks by clothes shopping and I still get all silly, girly girl excited when Seth comes home and tells me that we get to go to a ball!  
Here are a few pictures from our first ball with 3-1 Cav....and we had the best time that we have had in a long time!

Seth's deployment buddy, Travis and my newest, super fun friend, Cassie- they are the biggest Auburn fans you will ever find.  Travis' dad and grandad both played football there...just a little fyi.
 All three of the LT's who were deployed together: Travis, LeeJay and Sethy

The best way to check out your makeup on the way is to take a picture!

Silly photo op...the evening wouldn't be complete without it

Did you think I would have a picture of my stuffed belly on here???  I won't torture you today, maybe another day. Today I will post something much cuter from some fun etsy sellers...all of which would make GREAT handmade gifts for Christmas.

I couldn't choose just one cute stuffed plushy from this shop:  Blue Reindeer Bird from sabahnur

AND...don't forget that tomorrow is "Small Business Saturday".  This excerpt is taken straight from the website:

November 27, 2010 is the first-ever Small Business SaturdaySM.
A day to come together in support of the small businesses we love.
The shops and restaurants that employ our neighbors and reinvest our money close to home.
The businesses that are the heartbeat of our communities and local economies.

hide and go seek

Caleb likes to play in my pots and pans cabinet while I cook and I happily let him do this because it lets me get dinner made.  I am guessing the pots and pans weren't doing it for him, so he took it to the next level........literally.
