Monday Morning Musing ~ A few of my favorite things!

Good Monday Morning Friends!

Okay...please do not think I have
Yes, those are my hands and feet you see in the

I am always a bit late to get on board with what is new,
and painting my nails is one of them.  As an
artist I quit many years ago painting my nails.
Due to my hands in water, glue and just plain wear
and tear, it never was worth the time I spent.
Mind you, this girly girl was sad...;-(!

Until a few months ago, I had never hear of Gel Shellac
on fingernails.  While in Jacksonville, my sister
talked me into trying Shellac.  OH MY GOSH!!!!
I am in LOVE!
My first manicure lasted me 3 weeks with
no problems at all!

To say I am SOLD OUT on this method
 of painting my sweet lil fingers, is an understatement!
So...on Friday I went to have them repainted!
This will be a purely wonderful splurge that
I will be doing regularly from now on!

If you haven't heard of...or was wondering what the
fuss is all about...if you are someone who
works with your hands but wants them to still look
pretty for an extended period of time, without
damaging your nail...this is the way to go!

Okay....can I just say BLING!!!
While shopping a few weeks back with my
daughter at DSW I found these darling
Gellie Jems in the clearance aisle!
They were a tad more than I'd usually pay
but the Bling had me at *hello*!

Do you not agree?

Also just tucking in a picture of another sweet
repurposed thrift box I found!
Loving how darling this turned out with all its
vintage laces, ribbons and roses!

Have a great week everyone!
