SEA, SUN AND SAND

Ahhhh dreams of Sea, Sun and Sand swirl within many of us! Until we can get there, we can wear this cozy and comfy handmade sweater from Wooden Ships

These high-quality sweaters are so darling! As the Wooden Ships creators say “There is something so comforting about knits... Knits have a slouchiness that makes them immediately casual... who doesn’t love a cozy sweater? It’s primal!” Wooden Ships gives back in so many ways and their no waste approach means these made to order beautiful sweaters!


I’m so excited for you to see all their Spring and Summer Beauties! Just in time for Re-entry back into somewhat normalcy where you can feel confident, chic and comfy. Use the

I loved styling this cutie a couple different ways and I love both. Right now, I’m lounging around the house in it with joggers but it looks especially cute with beachy white pants or jeans and lace up espadrilles!

EASY PEASY LEMON SQUEEZY TIERED TRAY

I’m sure you’ve all been thinking to yourself, what kind of tray is Andrea going to create for summer? No, I doubt any of you have been thinking that, but I for-see my tiered tray future way in advance, and I had no doubt that one of them was going to be a lemon themed tray! The other one is an Americana one, but I’ll save that for a little later. I think the sunshiny sight of lemons os much needed in our world right now!


I do want to pop a delicious lemon drop in my mouth every time I walk by, lol!
I tell you what, we all need some sunshine in our lives and this Lemon Tray has brought just that to our kitchen! I could not love it more! It makes me smile every time I look at it. The first piece I got was a Hello Darlin’ sign at Hobby Lobby and I certainly cannot wait until they open up again! 

And then my mom went to Florida in February, and she brought me back the darling ceramic measuring spoons and I knew this is going to be a hit!

 Details on everything else to purchase is linked up below! Like this darling letter board and lemons. 



And how precious is the lemon hat!

I hope it brings a smile to your face as well!

You know how much I love Kendra Scott and even more now because they sent out an email this week telling about an initiative they’re doing with influencers that made my heart just burst with joy and gratitude! for every piece of Kendra Scott jewelry we showcase on Instagram, using the hashtag #DoGoodPassItOn, they will donate a beautiful piece of KS to all the heroes on the frontlines! What a sweet gift to bring joy and light to everyone working so hard to keep us safe during this pandemic! I am honored to post to Instagram today so that one of our heroes can get a beautiful thank youl!

So honored to still have birthday gifts trickling in. I have a friend named Sharon in Texas who Blogs over at Adoring Creations and she is a big support and inspiration to me!

She’s a beautiful soul inside and out and just look at this adorable double hooded Faith sweatshirt she sent me this week! I LOVE it and I “Adore” her!

DAISIES AND LEATHER

I don’t know about you, but there’s something about daisies and leather that just conjure up such a Boho vibe! This outfit had me thinking concerts and festivals where you tote the perfect Crossbody bag for all your little essentials, all hands-free for dancing, eating and drinking all kinds of goodness!


Now, I know we can’t do these things right now, but I can tell you that a great crossbody purse has come in handy at the grocery store to be hands-free, so I don’t have to worry about a big purse. The concerts and festivals will come again, and I know I’m excited about shopping trips where I’ll definitely want to be hands-free to do some serious shopping! I’ll be toting my supple leather Stretta Crossbody for sure! 


My friends at Embrazio make beautiful handmade leather bags, belts, phone holders and jewelry all made in the hands of highly skilled leather artisans. The company owners, Scott and Stephanie have a customer collaborative design with the fashion world. These Colorado residents know that quality, fashion and function often blend together.



That’s exactly what my Stretta Crossbody Leather Bag is. It’s graceful and functional and completely conducive to any modern lifestyle! I love all the zippers, the size and the sweet little tassel which is removable by the way and adds such a fashionable touch! it can also be converted into a hip bag by removing the shoulder strap and running a belt through the hidden leather channel in the back.



I thought the Cognac color blended so well with just a plain crisp white shirt tied in the front and the sensational flare Daisy pants! Add in leather sandals and you have the most fun and hip outfit! And this luxurious leather is water resistant!

Check out Embrazio's other beautiful leather products made by heart and by hand!

AND A HAPPY 25th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY TODAY to our very own Laura Horton
Her and her husband Wayne are so stinking cute, and they keep life fun. My heart breaks they can’t go out for a lovely dinner or party at the beach but these two will find some sweet shenanigans, I just know it!
LOVE you both!!

FRIDAY FAVORITES.....LITTLE JOYS EDITION

Happy Friday babes! I know, I know it’s hard! And to add to our fun Quarantine times has been Indiana weather that goes from 60s and sunny the windchill of 25 and snow on the ground! As I type this. 4 inches are predicted. Whaaat? We’re opening our pool next week. BUT, it’s all about finding little joys so I try to do that each and every day! I hope you will too!

1. Little Joys
Waking up and finding little joys every.single.day is what is keeping me sane!

EASTER TABLE
As you know, I had done my Easter Tiered Tray but I had not brought out anymore Easter decorations. A few hours before Easter dinner, I grabbed the Easter tub and spruced up a thanksgiving centerpiece with eggs carrots and a bunny, I love the way it turned out and I had almost forgotten about my bedazzled carrot napkin rings!

HIBISCUS
You know I love flowers and it’s getting close to time to plant our annual‘s. We have concerns about local greenhouses even being open and the process but the sweet owner of one of our small ones called me and not only has she already reserved me a couple tropical plants but she had five beautiful yellow hibiscus come in and that was exactly how many I needed (2 for mom) and she told me she put my name on them, so sweet!

Zoom
Zooming with friends is such a fun thing to do now and Monday night, the Chicago girls, as I called them, and I had a virtual happy hour. I’ll share the cocktail I had in the next segment below.


2. THE YETI BARTENDER
Peach Bellini Martini...and
I'm on YouTube!!!
So, kids I’m doing something new, I’m doing a weekly video which I’m uploading to YouTube called “The YETI Bartender! Each week, I will make a delicious cocktail and since I do not own a martini shaker, I utilize our yeti tumblers as martini shakers with the MagSlider Lid and they work perfectly! Here is my first one from YouTube below (I hope you'll check it out) where I made a Peach Bellini Martini and it was delicious! 

Watch the FULL HOW TO 
VIDEO ON YouTube HERE

And I finally ordered proper set of Martini Glasses HERE

Mom's Martini's
I told my mom that when all this is over, she can be a guest star on The Yeti Bartender, here is her regular and Giant Dirty martini's she made this week!


3. Gifts Keep on Coming
I’m so blessed to have such thoughtful friends with such amazing taste. The birthday gifts are continuing to roll in and the thought behind them all made my heart so happy! 


Sweet Jill, who is one of the girls I zoomed with Monday night knows I love pink. She does too seeing as she blogs at the incredible Doused in Pink! She nailed it with a darling Ted Baker pink cosmetic case, fun hoop earrings that happen to match the adorable hair scarves that I can’t wait to wear with my bun or pony! She’s the Best! Read about one of our Chicago meet-ups HERE!


This cuteness and Magnolia Table volume 2 cookbook came from the sensational Shelly from The Queen In Between! It had extra sweet sentiment behind it because last November the style six girls and I spent time in Texas with a day at Waco and having Biscuits and Butters at Magnolia Table! Read about our day in Waco HERE!

Sweet Kate from Green Fashionista had such a precious thought in mind for my gift. She knows I love to create delicious meals for my family, so she had this custom apron made for me and I absolutely love it! The writing is in pretty rose gold which Kate loves too! I was supposed to meet this girly in real life last month, but it will happen in the future!

4. Tie Dye
Totally in love with this tie-dye maxi dress. This was a dress that was supposed to go on that trip with me, I was probably going to wear it on the plane because it’s as soft as butter! So instead, now, I just wear around the house like a comfy nightgown, LOL!
