I LOVE  meeting other creative women who have turned their passion into a profit. I met a sweet lady named Kim at the shop last weekend when she brought in some of her handmade earrings.  She scours antique stores and thrift shops for vintage jewelry and transforms it into fun and pretty earrings!


Your can find these little treasures here!  She'll be adding more to the site this week. Thanks for supporting your local artisans and shops~it means the world to us:)

Happy Mother's Day! {Strawberry French Toast}

Whip this up for mom and she'll love you forever!  Recipe found  here:

Fraise {Strawberry} French Toast

8oz Ricotta Cheese

8 oz Cream Cheese

1 Jar strawberry ice cream topping

2 Tbsp powdered sugar

1 Loaf sour dough bread, sliced thick

3 Eggs

½ cup milk

1 tsp cinnamon sugar mixture

½ stick butter

Fresh strawberries for topping


Combine ricotta and cream cheese until smooth. Add ¼ cup ice cream topping. Add 2 Tbsp powdered sugar. Set aside. Mix together in a small bowl, the cinnamon/sugar, milk, and eggs. Set aside. Spread each slice of bread with about 3-4 Tbsp of the strawberry cheese mixture. Press two slices together to form a sandwich. Dip the sandwich into the milk and egg mixture. Heat half the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until melted. Carefully, add the French toast. Cook until lightly brown on each side, about 3-5 minutes. Remove to plate and let cool slightly. Top the French toast with more more strawberry ice cream topping, fresh strawberries, and powdered sugar.
