This sweet little fox has taken a nap in a bed of flowers.
This fox brooch is made from a light weight plastic using my original hand drawn illustrations of the fox and all the flowers, which I have scanned and then printed onto the plastic.
The plastic its very durable, but to be on the safe side should be taken care of with love as you do with all jewelry.
The Brooch is about 42 mm long at its widest part.
42 mm (1.65 inch)
Weather you love vintage, traditional or obscure, Etsy is great resource to find that perfect peice for your home. Anything from pillows to actual furniture can be found. I love looking at the furniture, I am a huge fan of the obsure and weird, although not many people know that about me. Some of these are spendy but pretty to look at!

I finally got my mini Dottiebox. I was careful to not google Dottiebox until I got mine so the surprise of what was in side would not be ruined. I love surprises so honestly these kinds of subscription boxes are totally me! Also being a big fan of handmade items and supporting small business’s as well! Ok now for what was in side (drum roll please …..)
These cute earring are from Forest of Jewels. This shop has earrings, necklaces and bracelets. She also included a 25% off coupon. :)
The candle is from Chi Candles. I started to burn this right away and it smells very good (even my husband likes it). This shop has a variety of different soy candles and body/bath oils.
Last but not least lip balm from Reveille Reveille. This was my favorite item (and not only because I couldn’t find my other lip balm and my lips were a bit dry!) It smells nice and feels good on my lips, all the properties I love in a lip balm. This shop has different kinds of lip balm, scrubs, body butter & lotion bars.
As usual when I am at lunch at my day job, I pop over to Etsy to not only look at my shop but study the treasury that has made it to the front. I try to assertain what the curators plan was while they put that particular treasury together. Today, unlike any other day, a beautiful treasury sits before me, however I actually recognize the curators name Marieken Hoefnagel. Who could forget a beautiful name like Marieken! She’s the owner of invisiblecrown on Etsy and her blog is here. Check out her beautiful shop and wonderful blog! Click here to see the treasury!
Here are a few of the items she has in that treasury that I adore!
Friday night is when I had decided my husband and I were going to get away from it all, at least for the day! He kind of grumbled when I said don’t go to bed to late as I have an itinerary for us on Saturday.
First thing is first and the car desperately needed an oil change. I am not a very nice car owner and wait far longer than I should and the guy at Jiffy Lube let me know this. I love how my husband was sitting in the passengers seat going “Yes you should take better care of the car!” He can’t even drive it! He’s from England and never needed to know how and has been dragging his feet a bit on learning here but that’s another story.
After we found a place to have breakfast we were off on our little adventure. My original plan was to just go up to Snoqualmie and perhaps explore the surrounding area’s. When we got there of course it was foggy, we had been having foggy weather for a while and I am not sure what made me think it would be better at Snoqualmie! We went up to the falls and tried to see anyway. All the while my husband keeps going on about us dying which I do admit was pretty funny. He is afraid of heights so I am sure it wasn’t helping as I am up against the wooden railing trying to see the falls in the fog.
Since it was so foggy we decided to drive further and we ended up in Cle Elum, its a small whole-in-the-wall town but it definitely has its charm. We found cool wood craft store and bought a wooden welcome sign.
We eventually made it back to Snoqualmie and had lunch at the Mexican restaurant and came home. Here is a scenery picture I took at Snoqualmie. I do love the mountains that are literally everywhere on this side of Washington.
