Red Ruby Rose

My obsession with purses just won't stop! One of my most favorite sellers on Etsy, whom I'd like to feature here on my blog, is Rowena from Red Ruby Rose. Her specialty is limited edition handmade clutches. She even designs some of her fabrics. Check out her shop!
Here's a few of my faves...

"I have a husband...

so I'm not a crazy cat lady."
That's what a guest that owns four cats said on today's Oprah show.
I love it! I don't know how many times I've been called a "Cat Lady!" Admittedly, I own six (yes, six) cats. More about them later...

Today's show was heartbreaking and left me in tears.

Bill Smith, founder of Main Line Animal Rescue, got Oprah's attention with a billboard in Chicago that read, "Oprah: Do a show on puppy mills. The dogs need you."
It certainly got her attention! The focus of today's show was dogs, and they had an update on the previous "puppy mill" show. You can read more about it here: Investigating Puppy Mills.

It was amazing to see all the shelters and individuals out there that are devoted to helping animals.
I was most impressed by Angel's Gate, whose mission is "A lifetime commitment to physically challenged, abused, and abandoned animals." Please visit the site and show your support!

Shabby Chic

A gorgeous, vintage cameo is the focal point of this necklace. The acrylic cameo is from the 1950's and features a colorful bouquet of flowers. I have fastened it securely to a fancy antiqued brass setting.

This beautiful pendant hangs on a length of delicate chain with an antiqued brass finish - measures 25". Adorned with an aged brass swallow, and two Czech glass beads in green with gold specks that have been wrapped with oxidized brass wire. Finished with a lobster clasp.

Romantic and whimsical.

♥ All You Need Is Love ♥

"...Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
It's easy. All you need is love...Love is all you need."

Here's a sneak peak at one of my new necklaces!

The First Day of Fall

My absolute favorite time of year. The weather is perfect. Everything is beautiful. I can't wait to drive up into the mountains when the leaves start to turn, so I can take lots of pictures. =)

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
