I’ve decided to go gluten-free for a month to see if I can resolve some of my health issues. If you have any favorite or go-to snacks, recipes, or comments for me I’d love to hear from you!
If you’re interested, Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health book is available at Amazon (referral link)
Update: I am a week into this and I’m feeling so much better, I think I may go further than just a month.
Vintage Salt and Pepper shakers are in the shop!
Simple, delicious and healthy. Pictured are apples, celery, carrots, and a lemon.
These beautiful vintage tin mini jello/cake molds can be used for so much more than jello! Make soaps, wax melts, bath fizzies, flan, rice pudding, or just lovely office organization for all those loose bits like pushpins and paper clips.
Each mini tin mold measures approximately 1 and 1/2 inches deep and about 3 and 3/4 inches wide. These charming tin molds are in good vintage condition and have not been washed or used since found.
Some new logo options I’ve been working on.

So exciting starting a new venture! Everyday I have to remember to pace myself and really take time to sort out ALL the details because my heart always says jump now, and look later! And I know that’s not always the smartest decision. I guess my fear is that my heart will dream bigger dreams than reality can ever deliver. But I like to stay juuuuust naive enough always go for whatever it is I dream up next, and I guess that’s a good thing. Cuz I’m going for it!
The current thing I’m obsessing over is product packaging that is both cost effective (for a startup) and still special and my own. So many wonderful ideas out there that it’s almost overwhelming. I can’t seem to commit to one solid idea/ color scheme / branding direction. I almost want to hand it over to someone else! Only I know I can’t kid myself – I’m too much of a control freak! So for now, I’ll be over at Pinterest letting my imagination run wild. It’s part of the fun anyways
