{Thank You}

This book made my day today! I've been working with a customer for a few weeks now trying to perfect a design for her family piece. We were able to arrive at a decision and I was able to make the piece for her before she and her daughters left for Spain. I have a certain affinity for Spain. It is a beautiful country with lovely people and food. I only spent a week there as a teenager but had a close friend from Spain who will always be dear to my heart. When our customer arrived to pick up her piece she brought me this book full of gorgeous Spanish & Mediterranean recipes. It made my day! THANK YOU!
As we mentioned before, Lele flew solo this weekend working the Friends of the Greenway event while I threw a party for my Lincoln & Ruby Jane who turned ONE! We were overwhelmed with the wonderful response to our jewelry. Lele, along with her fabulous Mother & sister, were able to get the word out about our line and we loved participating in and supporting a local event! Thank you for all of your wonderful support Murfreesboro!

Sassy & Elegant

These are just fresh off the press and they are adorable.... Long and dangely they are a bit of a statement. I photographed them on the pumpkin and the tree to show just how long they are {just under 2 inches long}.

Each ear ring has a large fresh water pearl at the top and 2 small freshwater pearls and 2 small clear/ iridescent beads {hand wrapped} hanging from a sterling silver chain. The hooks are sterling silver as well.

These sassy jewels will only cost you $30.00, but if you buy a pair this weekend, you can save $5.00. Sale Price= $25.oo, sale ends Sunday night @ 11:59 pm.
Happy Shopping!

Simple. Lovely. Elegant.

To be honest with you, I have a bit of blogger block tonight. I keep thinking of things to post for our wonderful readers and I have deleted 3 posts already because they just were not right. So, this is what I have tonight.

These ear rings are one of my most favorite K&L pieces. They are so classy and I wear my pair almost all of the time. Mine are cream, but we also offer them in charcoal and pink. They are strung on sterling silver wire and hand wrapped. The hooks are also sterling. For you gals who are sensitive, we offer hypo-allergenic hooks as well...

Buy a pair today, just e-mail and we can get you a pair out in the mail. We have about 6 pair in stock currently, so there is no 2 week waiting period.

The price is normally $18.00, but if you buy a pair this week, the price is $12.00.

How can you resist? Sale ends on Thursday, September 25th.... Hurry!

Wordful Wedesday

{Lincoln - The Birthday Boy!!}

{Ruby Jane - The Birthday Girl!!}

Wordful Wednesday is becoming my most favorite day! But today is especially special - it's Lincoln & Ruby Jane's birthday! WOOHOO! They have come a LONG WAY in one year and I could not be more proud! Their birth and the experiences we had following their birth is one of the things that prompted me to start this jewelry business with Leslee. I wanted to find a way to give back to a place that had given me something I could never repay - my children's health. Leslee was very committed to fining local charities to donate to as well - so it was a great fit - hence the birth of Kiki & Lele. At the end of the year we are donating a portion of our profits to benefit local charities. Our Charity Account is growing and we can't wait to fill you in on all of the details once the year end approaches.

Lele will be flying solo this Saturday at the Friends of the Greenway event here in Murfreesboro. The event begins at 10am and concludes at 4pm. Go down and show Lele some support! This Mama Bird will be hosting a birthday bash for 30 +. Looks like I may need some support too! Ha Ha!

I hope everyone has a day that is joy filled as mine is today!

Ooooh La La...

I thought I would share some special lovelies with you... We recently had some special orders from a house party that our friend Michelle had for us. We had a great turn out so we just wanted to show you the best part of the party- all of the new pieces that we got to make...

This Mama Bird has been sick trying to heal three little baby birds as well. This week has taught me to me grateful for my health and my family. To really assess what is important to me. One of the major reasons for this was September 11th falling this week and it coming and going almost unnoticed by the media. It's something that even in my bleary eyed state I noticed and it makes me wonder... why? It's not a question that I can answer. I can only say that I remembered and I hope you did too. I was in New York City only a few weeks before the Twin Towers fell. I remember exactly where I was, what I was wearing, and how I felt when I heard about the first tower and all of the confusion. It's a day that I will always remember and it is a day that teaches me to be grateful for the people in my life. The heroes that died that day, the heroes that survived, and all of the families will always be in my prayers and I will always be indebted to them for teaching me the valuable life lesson of being grateful and humble.

Wordful Wednesday- Designers

Kiki & Lele working a booth at a local event. Setting up a booth is so much fun because we get to meet the customers face to face... We still love our on-line customers, but there is something nice about putting a face and name with the piece you are designing.

Angie from {7 Clown Circus} is hosting Wordful Wednesday. Be sure to pop on over and join. So much fun to see what everyone has to share.

Have a great Hump Day

I made fun little necklace for my friend Jessica's baby shower. It is our first time officially using making a shape that has a curve to it {dome shaped}. I used the tear drop shape and it says "Emma Grace."

Sorry that the pictures are not better quality. I remembered at the last minute that I had to take pictures of it.... How tacky I am rummaging through the gifts to find my and take a picture of it. If there had not been so many people still around I would have asked her to put it on so I
could get a better picture.... HAHA!

Kiki & The Little Bear

I've called Ryder my "Little Bear" almost since birth. Why you ask? Because he is built just like a little bear and always has been - he barely has a neck and is solid as a rock. As you may know I am a happy SAHM to three beautiful dumplings and juggle K & L business in between nap time and bed time. It is very important to me that I take as little time away from my family as possible. I enjoy every second of being a Mom - even those seconds that make you want to pull your hair out. Ha! Ha! Ryder is 2 1/2 and I can't believe everything he learns in the span of one day and where he picks up some of the things he says. Our latest? I thought you'd never ask...
Ryder likes to stand with his hands in his pockets just like a big boy. The other day his Daddy asks "Ryder, what do you have in your pocket?" And Ryder replies - with a VERY serious face and very deep voice "FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS!!" I mean seriously...where does he get this stuff? I'm so grateful for everything Ryder, Lincoln & Ruby Jane teach me every day. I am truly blessed.
Curious about new Kiki & Lele pieces? We have some new shapes in the works...and I promise - they won't be FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS!
