Summer's Almost Here!

Yay! I have been so busy with finals, tennis, jumping, running and flexed arm hanging that summer has rolled around before I knew it! Yesterday was exciting and exhausting. In the morning, I had the Local Meet of Hershey's Track and Field Games to attend. Last year, I got to the State Meet in the 11-12 age group. This year, I'm in the 13-14 age group so I knew it was going to be much more of a challenge, especially since I hadn't been practicing much! On Friday, we practiced in the yard, landing jumps of only 7'3''! The local meet proved to be on my side when my first jump measured in at 8 feet! Wowzers! A nice gold medal and a ticket to District Meet for me! I was also competing in the 200 meter, but since I had only run it 2 times before, I wasn't excepting anything great. My time was 30.1 seconds, only granting me a silver medal, but that's fine with me. It's still my personal best.
We came back yesterday and took Doany, the cat that had invited herself into our house for 2 weeks, to PAWS. I didn't go, because I didn't want to cry and because I was exhausted. Doany will be going to a nice foster home until she is ready for adoption, and we will be notified of any news.
Then to a 4 hour school's out party and back home again for me. No wonder I slept in!
Today I have a tennis match at 1 pm. Don't really know if I'm playing singles today, but I hope so.
Been practicing flexed arm hanging for Jubilee Day. Hopefully I can hang for 70 seconds and win a T-shirt that says "Pain is weakness leaving the body". Wouldn't that be fun to wear around!?!
What are you looking forward to this summer? I really want to go to Hersheypark. I'm not a huge roller coaster dare devil, but I hope to go to the Boardwalk and relax on Intercoastal Waterway, and a few rides on the Great Bear would be fun, too!

I admit I have been a very bad girl for not blogging in over a month! I have been very busy. I think I might start a new blog, a philosophy one and yes, I know you are saying, if she can't even post consistently on one blog, how can she on two? I am going to try very very very hard on the other one because philosophy is my passion. And on this blog, well, I will post, but I'm not going to kill myself if it's not very often.

Costume Jewelry!

Here is just one of the hundreds (well maybe not that many) of new vintage costume jewelry pieces I have just recieved for my Etsy shop! I don't have hundreds, but I do have a fairly good amount so please check my shop often for new listings! So far I have only listed two items, the beautiful green bird necklace and ring set shown above and a horse and jockey pin/brooch. I am very excited to list more items, it's just that I hate the picture taking! It's always so hard to get the pictures perfect!

Welcome Fall

Here are some goregeous items from fabulous Etsy sellers that remind us to welcome fall and enjoy all the beautiful experiences that it brings with it. Welcome, orange, red and golden leaves, welcome, breezy days that remind us that winter is on its way but summer is still hanging on tight, welcome, fall. When I saw this picture from Janet's World, I thought it perfectly captured the beautiful fall colors and scenery. Click here to view the listing.
These kitchen towels are so pretty! I love the colors and design of the leaves. Item made by evolve2love.

And last but certainly not least, who can possibly forget the pumpkin pie that fall brings!?!? This truly adorable candle is from cakeordeath5.

Cosmic Lily on Etsy

Right now I am stuck with featuring Etsy sellers everyday until I get time to take pictures of my most recent ideas. It's not a bad thing, it's just that I do want some more diversity later on. Anyway, today's featured shop was found using "pounce" on Etsy to find shops that have not had a sale. Today's featured shop is Cosmic Lily. Cosmic Lily's shop has quality items at a reasonable price. Her shop features jewelry with crocheted beads in a wide variety of colors. Above is a favorite of mine.
More shops similar to this will be featured later on! Check back soon!

Jack and Jane on Etsy

Today I want to share the love and start out featuring one of my inspirations for Etsy. The shop is called jackandjane and features accessories such as clips and headbands with adorable farbic. Below is a picture with my favorite item from her.

I certainly can not say enough for jackandjane, and I wish I could feature ALL her items. Here are a bobby pin collection that I love to look at.

More shops similar to this will be featured later on! Please stop by often!

Crafts! Blogs! Etsy!

I think that I might turn this blog into a crafting blog! I'm very excited, and I didn't want to make a whole new blog because well, this is called "Noodles and Noodles" which means anything and everything is posted on it and my etsy shop is called the same thing, so it all works out.

Anyway, as I was saying, I am going to have a crafting blog. This means I'm going to share my new ideas, share other people's cool ideas and share some of my new Etsy listings and cool finds. So excited is all I can say! And should I start today? Well what's that good old saying?... There's no time like the present! Well, maybe tomorrow...

Sorry about not posting in FOREVER!!!! I have been so busy getting items ready for my new etsy shop, Noodles and Noodles, (where have I heard that name before?!?), that I never got around to it! Anyway, here's the link, I have already gotten a few sales, and I believe I might get a few more coming up because of a special item I have listed. They are old vintage horse show ribbon buttons from my mom's/grandma's old ribbons! They didn't want a lot of their old ones that weren't as special to them, so we started ripping out the middle and came up with these! They are great for crafting, so a lot of people have started to look at these. I've already sold 4!

Everything to Everyone

Do you ever start quoting people from romantic Jane Austen movies over everything everyone else says? I do, sometimes. But actually I think I quote song lyrics much more. It so cool how most of them fit in to so much people say in everyday life. My friends must think I'm a complete nutcase for singing Beatles songs all day, but I can't really help it.
