Featuring a fellow Artisian... Earjeans

"Earjeans - Jeans your ears will love!"





I came across Tasha's shop a while back and thought she had a really fun and unique idea... taking a bit from her shop "Jewelry that fits you like your favorite pair of jeans. "- what a great idea! 
In addition to earrings, she also offers necklaces, bracelets, rings, and greeting cards featuring works reproduced from original paintings by master artist, Chester L. Hopper.

Here are just a few items from her shop:


  Flowers for You - Lime green
  So much fun to create and wear.  Earrings are 2" wide and are very light weight. I hand painted a 7 petal flower (yellow) on lime green denim fabric. Flower is on one side.  





 Gold Wire Wrapped Ring
10K Yellow gold wire wrapped ring with a brown, gold, and black glass button bead.  Available in sizes 6, 8, and 10. (These are the last ones!) Get 'em while you can :o)





Black and White Hoops
Black Denim decorated with white and silver fabric paint (design on both sides) Silver finding and black bead chips added for a little extra sass!  Earrings measure 2 3/4" in diameter and are very light weight.





Coffee Spots
Various size and colored circles printed on 100% cotton make a great set of Earrings that will match with several outfits! (brown, maroon, yellow, green, orange, and white).  They measure 3 1/2" diameter and are sure to stand out in any crowd.

Going bananas...........

Not me... but our banana trees are!  We have one that fruited about a month and a half ago and we are patiently (well trying to be patient) for it to be ready for cutting off the tree & hang to ripen.   A second tree just bloomed earlier this week!!  Its been fun for the kids to watch as it goes through the different stages... the flowering, seeing those tiny green bananas, and waiting.  I'll post a few pics later on this week.

I hope everyone had a nice and relaxing Thanksgiving weekend.  Wow, November is nearly gone.  I have a few things done for the Boys line and need to work on a few more.

Don't forget... just a couple days left to "Follow" and enter to win a $15 certificate to my online shop!

I know, I should be posting the Boys stuff that's coming but.....

I couldn't resist. I know, most are in the midst of cold, snowy weather but... like my saying goes, "Because its summer all year in Hawaii..." I couldn't go without releasing this beautiful white seersucker peasant top a little earlier than originally planned as it was intended to be part of the Spring line... so here it is a wee bit early.  The bell sleeves & bottom feature rolled hems. The elastic neckline makes this an easy fit and it couldn't be sweeter without the lightly shirred sleeves. One of my favorites :)



You can find this adorable top in my shop, just click HERE

Get the complete look and add the Boutique ruffled pants in black or cranberry.
