Accessories For Any Season

Hello Friends!
I hope you all have had a wonderful week this week.
Ours has been busy. Cohen started the 2nd grade and Marlee is walking all over the place.
Orders have been coming in for the new fringe earrings and the Pom Pom earrings continue to be a huge hit.

Have you seen our beautiful new earrings in the shop?
Let me start with the fringe earrings.

These earrings are perfect with your favorite graphic t-shirt/t-shirt and jeans. They would look super cute for game day to match your teams color(s). They also look great on date night adding some fun texture and flair to your outfit. These are so light weight and come in many different metal options. These are all ready to ship, unless you pick the custom color option. If you pick the custom color option your earrings will ship within 10 days.

Next up are the Pom Pom Earrings.

These are also lightweight and perfect for adding some fun to your everyday outfit. Look how dressed up Meagan makes these earrings look in her LuLaRoe Dani and LuLaRoe Lindsay.
They will be a fun statement piece with your favorite t-shirt and jeans. Or grab them in your teams colors.
(I hear there is a Game Day collection coming out this weekend.)

So dress these fun earrings up or dress them down, the choice is yours.

Which style is your favorite?
Make sure you are following us on FB and Instagram, a little birdie said a giveaway is coming tonight.
Enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Little Chicken is Back

6 years ago the Chicken Clutch was introduced to the shop and it quickly became a customer favorite. A few people have asked if I would bring it back, so for a limited time you can find the chicken clutch back in the shop. 


The chicken clutch looks best when she is filled with your treasures, keeping her nice and plump.

After 6 years, we have made a few upgrades. The yarn itself has changed to a softer yarn, while also giving some yarn with great texture. Also we have included a magnetic closure vs. the button giving it an easier way to hold on your personal items secure.

So now the question is...what color will your little Cluck Cluck Clutch be?

Check back later this week, my 3 year old nephew wants a chicken clutch. I have a  few ideas, just need to see how they work up.
Enjoy!

Well, Hello There!

WOW! It sure has been a while since I visited this little space. Running this little business while having a 7 year old and a baby has been a tough balance.
I think I am finally starting to get my feet under me to add the blog back into the mix.
So I thought I would share one of the most recent pieces I have designed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This little Frida is perfect to go with your favorite clutch in the shop or even add one to your favorite bag. She is also cute paired with a Pom Pom either as her body or behind her.
I adored her so much and love the example that Frida has set for girls/women everywhere. So I wanted a way that my daughter could use her. She's to small to wear a necklace, so I made her into a pacifier clip.

Marlee has been a huge fan of her pacifier clip, so much so I am thinking of other amazing women to add to the shop. I did receive a special order for a Frida lovey and a small Frida worry doll for a Nena & Co. purse.
What famous women in history would you like to see added into the shop?

Also, customs and loveys are available until June 1. So go check out the shop and contact me if you would like to set up a custom.
I promise to visit this little space more regularly.

Stay tuned for lots of new items and some fun things to come.

Life Kind of Happened

This little space of mine has been sadly neglected. Fall/Winter 2016-2017 became my busiest year yet as a maker.
From selling in two shops, online orders and finding out we were expecting a little one...the blog took a backseat.



I'm bound and determined to get back in the groove as I have so many new things to share with you.
The turn around time in the shop will change for a short time as mid-July is when we are expecting Miss Marlee to make her appearance, I will share more on this soon.
The shop will be gradually filled with a few new items and several may go away.

You can find several RTS items in the shop or head into DNA Galleries in the Plaza District to get your Oikos Handmade fix.

Stay tuned for some fun items...or to get some sneak peeks head on over and follow me on Instagram or Facebook.

Finely and Bub Fall Line

When you find another small shop to work with on a photo shoot, you say YES!!
I always am looking for ways to have my little/young girls items photographed so when Natalie (with Finley and Bub) was looking for a few items for a photo shoot I jumped at the opportunity that maybe my items might work with her esthetic.
(We have one son and I am an Aunt to 4 boys...no girls in sight thus far.)
Sure enough, her fall line fit right right in line with my style.
Finley and Bub with Oikos Handmade mini Crossboyd Fringe
How sweet is this little dress paired with the mini cross-body fringe purse with a fun pom pom?  I love everything from the color of the dress to the simple vintage embellishment around the neck.
I wanted to add a little whimsical feel to the purse so there are tiny little bells in the pom pom. They aren't loud, so they won't disrupt things but it is kind of as if you're calling your fairy friends to come out and play. When Finley said she loved the Jingle Bell Purse, I knew she had to keep it. Now I want a Jingle Bell purse too. ;)

Granny Squares have always been a favorite of mine!
I have loved making a beautiful piece you would find in your Grandma's home and make it into a beautiful fun modern accessory.
When Natalie sent a picture of the colors and style she was doing for her fall line, I knew a Granny Square Cowl would make a beautiful accessory to her amazing creations.
Finley and Bub Granny Square

The Rust Hi-Lo Hem Split Dress, is just so beautiful! I love everything from the color to the fit and the super cute knit ringer pullover sweater.
The Granny Square cowl fit perfectly with this dress. It brought it some fun fall colors that bring across the vintage feel that Natalie brought to her entire fall line-up.
From the colors, textures and styles, Natalie has you covered.
I keep telling her I need the Horse pants in my size and the dress from the first picture.

Oikos Handmade Purse/Cowl
Thank you Natalie for letting me be part of your fall line launch. I'm excited to see what else you have in-store!
Enjoy!!

To Infinity….

 

Not many people say “I loved my child when he was a follicle”. I know to much information right?! Well it is the truth in our case. I have loved our little mister from December 31, 2009 when he was just a hope. I guess that is the plus side to being infertile…after all there aren’t many pluses so we just take them as we can. Our little mister has come a long way in his short time on this earth. From a hope, to an answered prayer, to a boy, to born early, from 2lbs 7oz to a whopping 21 lb 2.5 year old. He has brought so much joy to our family and I can’t imagine life without him. Last week we went to my sister-in-love’s house so he could play with his cousins…and I could have some adult time. While there his Aunt Stacie was cleaning out the toys and Cohen scored 2 Buzz Lightyears. He had fallen in love. Cohen typically sticks to musical instruments and cars…so I figured Buzz wouldn’t last long. Well after Stacie told him he could take them home…they haven’t left his hands. He wakes in the morning looking for “Buuuuzzzz”…he is in love. Buzz has also helped our speech skills. It is amazing the little chatter box we have (comes from his dad). 😉

I wanted to make sure that he REALLY liked Buzz before buying him one. So his “PRIZE” for going to the doctor is a new Buzz tomorrow. Yes I do give him a prize after each appointment whether it be a toy, candy, drink, or something else special. He gets to have something because he is deathly afraid of doctors. While on Facebook this morning I noticed my friend Rebecca with ChickeeBoom posted a picture…Do you see what I see?!
6407_10151392377401265_1206135096_nI really am excited to get Cohen a new bracelet (he got a Chickeeboom bracelet for Christmas that says People Matter) but who doesn’t need a Buzz Lightyear inspired bracelet? After all we love him To Infinity and Beyond!
