Fabulous Find of the Day

It's been a long time since I've featured a Fabulous Find of the Day but I had to share these fabulicious things with you! Tracy Porter has always been an inspiration for me. I own several of her books and have looked at them numerous times and have used some of ideas when decorating my home. Many of you are familiar with her line for the home but her clothing line is tres chic and I pulled a few of my favorites to showcase here.

The eye-catching photo that was in their emailed newsletter:

The website! Watch the video!
Modern Muse Sleevless Dress I would wear this with a pair of black leggings and a cardigan sweater on a crisp Fall/Autumn day!
Gypsy Leopard Duster Coat Divine leopard print...need I say more?
Dream-of-Me Blazer Jacket The jacket that caught my eye in their newsletter. Look at those gorgeous roses!
Heirloom Tall Boots The Blazer needs to be paired with this pair of beautiful boots and a pair of great jeans!
Now I know that Tracy Porter's clothing is expensive and not all of us can afford to buy from her website but here is my Fabulous Find of the Day from Ross. Yes, Ross. I always look at the shoe department when I'm there because sometimes I find something really awesome. The clothing department is always a mess so I don't look at clothing very often (when I'm shopping there) but I always check out the shoes and housewares.

MMmmmmm...chocolate brown....
Fab leather boots by Nine West. REAL leather, not that awful vinyl stuff!

$19.99!!! You saw it right I paid only $19.99! See the retail value of $189.00. I love it when I find a great deal. I was so excited that day, I think my daughter thought I was crazy, LOL! I haven't worn them yet but I will soon.
I hope you enjoyed my Fabulous Find of the day and happy shopping to you!

Have a fabulous day!

The Apprentice

My daughter Savannah decided to make cupcakes for her BFF's birthday. She got her cupcake decorating skills from my sister Jenny, aka "The Cupcake Queen". Jenny's cakes and cupcakes are in demand and they are always beautiful as well as deeeeelicious! Savannah has helped Jenny make cupcakes several times in the past.
Savannah was not too thrilled that I took her photo. This photo was taken after 2 hours of dance practice :)
Her BFF's favorite color is orange and she added pearl sprinkles:
We had enough ingredients to make another batch of frosting so Savannah baked another batch a couple of days later. All these cupcakes are going straight to my waistline, LOL! We didn't have another pastry bag so she used a Ziploc bag (which was not as easy to use) but got the job done.
The cupcakes are a pretty sage green color (the photo is not too good).
Savannah and Kandice in Hawaii last March doing a little dance to Hula music as they were walking. The guys in the background were laughing at them and later called them the "crazy dancing girls"! I was entertained by them throughout the entire trip!



The "Tamara Two" Card was just listed at my Etsy shop and website. Aqua is so divine...love it!

I hope this post brings back fond memories of your good times with friends!

Have a fabulous day!

Krafty | Chic










I debuted my newest line of chic, handmade note cards and gift tags at my website yesterday morning! A big "thank you" to my sister Jenny for helping me with the name and "logo" for the new line!
My new photo backgrounds were a big inspiration for this line as well as vintage French clothing and paper goods. I hope you are inspired by something fab today!

Have a fabulous day!
