What comes of Dreams

My little Swedish grandmother was the queen of baking in our family. She was always making cookies, and cinnamon rolls and made the best jelly roll ever! Her freezer was full of tins of baked goods and if there wasn't something fresh from the oven there would for sure be something pulled from her stash in the freezer. For Christmas one year she made me an entire nativity set of beautifully iced sugar cookies all neatly packed in a shoe box. So one time she had a dream that she used jello instead of sugar in her cookies and she woke up and made the most delicious pink cookies we called  "Gramma's Dream Cookies". When I was small I thought that was a very weird thing to dream about. The other night I dreamed that my grandmother was crocheting roses and handing them to me and I was stringing them into chains. In the dream they were changing into real flowers as I strung them. I woke up inspired to make this line of jewelery. Some of the best things come from dreams :)

Flower Girls

Image borrowed from
My mother used to make me and my three sisters all new dresses for Easter. Between my mom and my gram we always had new dresses, gloves, hats, jewelry and new spring shoes. I designed this bracelet after one I had when I was very small. It was the first one I made for my Little Girl Sparkles Section in my shop. I recently got an order for 3 bracelets for the flower girls in one wedding. Doesn't that sound adorable. I don't think I've ever seen a wedding with more than one. I kind of wanted to ask for a picture but I didn't know if that was creepy. What do you think?
