**Add a little sparkle wherever you may go**
Summer flies swiftly. And we franticly fill every possible minute with memories to carry us through the dreary winter months. But try as we may; theres just not quite enough time for our 'to-do' list. But we still treasure every moment!
We treasure the sparkles on the lake waters. We treasure the bright yellow of the marigold handed to us by grubby little hands. We treasure the sweet smell of fresh mowed hay. Yes, we process the little things just a moment longer!
Little things happen in so many other aspects of our life too. We're going through the 'treasure-each-moment-before-school-starts' stage this month. We're taking extra time to make special moments. special moments that will sparkle in our memory for years to come!
Just like this brand new fall dress called GOLD SPARKLE DRESS! It is elegant beyond description with all the ruffles and lace! And yet the beautiful color combination is so timelessly classy. The perfect dress for her to whirl and twirl down the aisle at that special occasion!
We wanted just a tad of extra personality with this Sparkle Dress and added three color options for the sash; sage for the fall look, gold for the very special occasion look and burgundy for a festive look!
This beautifully elegant dress has already gotten so many compliments that it is sure to become a huge Sparkle in your closet. A must have. A favorite of all little girls!

Finding Joy in the Journey,
The last whole week has been so very cold. And winter is giving this week a frigid blast of wind to start out on. Going anywhere is avoided at all costs and we turn a blind eye to the dreariness staring at us through the windows.
But little bit by little bit we are starting to see signs of Spring! The longer evenings and the pictures of yellow popping up from southern friends. Yellow! Yes, that's what we want to see! Cheeriness! Something to combat the dreariness of tired winter.
And with that thinking in mind I set out to create something yellow.
And then I started looking for other yellow things to add some cheer, and was amazed at all I found. Kind of like looking for blessing in the hard times; you are always amazed at what is around you that has been overlooked!
I love decorating with shades of red! Burgundy is actually my favorite. And that is the base color all throughout my home. Nothing is right without a tough of the elegant red color! And so of course in the middle of a dreary winter. When the cold, snow and gray skies are slowly starting to get to you; who wouldn't jump at the chance to bring some bright, happy red colors into your life. So go ahead and put away the snowmen and silver tinsel; and bring out the vibrant red hearts and cupids!
Make Valentine Evening extra special by making a special dessert. Add candles and then personalize the table by framing your favorite photo of the two of you.
And this part should actually come first.....make sure to spice up the entire day. Starting early by sending texts and emails to your sweetheart and set the mood for a wonderful evening!
Happy Valentine Day!!
I love you!
Let the fun begin! All the cheery RED and white décor is so much fun, especially since the winter blues are starting to sink in. Time for a change. And time to spread love! Start the month out with a special Valentine Countdown for your sweetheart.
Imagine with me for a minute.... Your loved one groggily rushes through their morning routine and reaches for their shoes before heading out the door. And they stop for a minute and stare. A pretty package is sitting inside their left shoe. They pick it up in puzzlement and peer at it. They tug at the wrapping and watch as something special emerges. And then a smile spreads across their face and their heart fills with love! You thought about them and went out of your way to make something special just for them. And then the next morning it happens again. And the next and the next..... love spreads and fills your home!
I" love you picture" to text to your sweetheart!!
