I love it! Beautiful colors and the name is wonderful too.
I just found your blog and have been reading all the archived posts. I'm a big thrifter and pack rat too. I laughed so hard when I saw the old 80's jewelry. I know I have some packed away in boxes somewhere. Honey wants me to throw out all my "stuff" so he can actually park the cars in the garage. Silly man! :oP

SO Cool Melissa! LOVE the name and the colors are wonderful! I'll need to mix and match some of them with my next line. ;)
