Merry Month of May!


At Mass on Saturday night,  Deacon Paul gave the homily and he focused on mothers.  Ron and I were both touched by his words as he referenced females of all walks of life.  We may be biological or adoptive,  an aunt or granny, a best friend or kissing cousin ~ but we are mothers, none-the-less.  We nurture, advise, show compassion, assist, and LOVE!

What a very special message!  So, albeit a day late ~ I'd like to wish all the ladies in my audience a beautiful and Happy Mother's Day!

Our dear family enjoyed the day together ~ from breakfast through dinner ~ I didn't lift a finger.  I was showered with so much love, I think it will carry me through to next Mother's Day!

Ron and the girls accompanied me  to Gather, A Vintage Market...



Afterwards, the girls and I spent the rest of the day scouring our local thrift stores ~

You see,  our Kiki has just opened an Etsy Shop!  You can visit her by clicking HERE

She launched her shop last Monday and had two sales that night!!
I just have to make sure that she doesn't go "shopping" in my house!

The Hive's been buzzin' and I'll share a few of the newest necklace arrivals to the Boutique...







Bracelets, as well...




I'm also excited to share a very special piece I was commissioned to create for my sweet friend, Donna...



Which leads me to my next exciting announcement!

This Saturday, May 18th, I will take my Trunk Show on the road and participate in
 A Ladies Rendezvous at the Rincon Mountain Grill
Click the link to learn more about the wonderful vendors I will be joining that evening.  It's going to be fabulous ~ come for dinner and stay to shop!

For my dear out-of-town friends, I'm offering FREE SHIPPING this week, in celebration of the Ladies Rendezvous.  Shop my Boutique and email me with your wishes.

I'm busy, as well, with online classes and an online retreat that's just a few weeks away.  More to come on that as it happens....

I did treat myself to a lovely vest ~ what do you think?



Visit my friend, Lori, at Katie's Rose Cottage ~ she has the yummiest fashions at amazing, affordable prices!

Well, that's a wrap!  Enjoy your beautiful week, my friends....the birds are chirping, butterfly's are flying, flowers blooming, and the grass is green ~ for what more can we ask?  Life is a blessing!

Life certainly IS a blessing and it is such an honor to be mother to special children no matter their age ... but as you pointed out there are many ways to nurture and spread Love and kindness other than giving birth...

Love your Madonna and child pendants so much and your broken china (in a circle!!!) pieces are stunning too ... I am also always a BIG fan of bee anything/everything!

Glad you had such a special day being treated like the Queen you are dear Karen...

Mr Magpie and I ran away for a long weekend and enjoyed ourselves SO much garden hopping in PA and relaxing in Charm City for the a couple of days too.

Brightest of Blessings to you and yours always!

Hello Karen,
I was so lucky to come by for a visit and see your lovely necklaces here! All of them are gorgeous! And you know I love Divine Grace.
You are a busy woman, I am glad you had a day where everyone showered you with love and attention.
Hugs,
Terri
