1337 Art's handmade inspiration

fun and pretty that will make other people smile.
My most recent purchase is a funky painting of a vintage

I recently purchased some
bath bars. Absolutely wonderful products! her soap is amazing!
Old text flower brooch - Romance Novel Reincarnated!
I love the idea that each item has a story behind
