Noonday Collection Sale


I became a Noonday Collection Ambassador last Fall and I have to admit this is a company that makes a difference! The beautiful collection of handmade, fair trade accessories from around the world creates economic opportunities in vulnerable communities and changes lives. They create dignified work for their partner artisans and empower women with employment, children are cherished and educational opportunities are created.

With Mother’s Day coming next month these lovely items would be a wonderful gift for the Mother’s and women in your life. Orders placed before April 26 will arrive in time for Mother’s Day.

You can read more about Noonday Collection and their artisans at .While you’re there shop and help us build a flourishing world where children are cherished, women are empowered, people have jobs and we are connected. These lovely items won’t disappoint and you can know you are helping others.

There is a SALE going on as well ! These items will sell out fast so I suggest ordering this week. My favorite the Lines and Stripes Catch All was originally $142 now on sale for $99.50 and I expect it to sell out in a day or two.



Hope you’ll take a minute to view Noonday Collection’s Spring Line

Have a great week!


Are You Ready For 2015 ?

New year 2015


Can’t believe it is 2015 ! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year’s Day surrounded by the ones you love.

Our home was filled with laughter, children, family and friends, just the way I like it. I have to admit it’s a little quiet around here now that it’s all over and the grandkids and families have gone home.

In the quiet of today I’m stopping to ponder and reflect back on 2014 then contemplating goals for 2015. I have so much I’m thankful for this past year and I get a little sentimental thinking about how fast kiddos are growing up and life is changing.

In thinking about the New Year , I hope to make it a year filled with intentional relationships and purpose. Nurturing present friendships and cultivating new ones. Reaching more women with Noonday Collection and sharing the stories of hope and redemption of our artisans.

My creativity and passion for making beautiful homes for every budget and style will be alive and well this coming year. Projects are waiting to be started and others are on the brink of completion. My plan is to post some tutorials so you can be inspired to be creative in your home as well with some fun projects.

Here’s to 2015 with fresh ideas and new inspirations!


My New Adventure as a Noonday Ambassador


Well I finally took a leap of faith last week and began this new adventure as a Noonday Ambassador. Noonday Collection is company that sells beautiful handmade jewelry and accessories which provides dignified jobs at a living wage providing sustainable income for the vulnerable.

You can read more about Noonday Collection’s purpose and story here:

With my family raised and out on their own I now have some time on my hands.  I’m a creative ‘hummingbird’ (that’s what my husband calls me), that has always loved fashion and decorating. Just ask my family they will tell you they never know when the house will be restyled for the next season, guess it’s a bit of an obsession. I like to think of it as making it warm and inviting ready for friends and family.

I believe God has been stirring my heart to look beyond my comfy sofa to the hurting world and global poverty. As a woman and a mother I feel it is important to speak up for those who love their children like I do and who want a better life for their families.

I first heard of Noonday through my daughter Summer Scandrett when she became a Noonday Ambassador over 2 years ago. In fact I hosted her very first trunk show. Her heart and love for the Noonday purpose was contagious and I was an instant fan. I hosted a trunk show every season and wore Noonday everywhere I went.  I had thought I would love to be an Ambassador but not sure if this was for those gals in their 20’s and 30’s and I wasn’t hovering in those decades anymore.

Well the stirring in my heart just couldn’t be settled and I believe God nudged me to speak up on behalf of those who need my voice to be heard for them. Their stories just keep playing in my mind and I knew that it was time to join the Noonday Collection and tell the artisans personal stories of redemption and hope as well as economic opportunity.

Now I am excited to share the Noonday Collection story and purpose to those who haven’t heard and impact the lives of those beyond my borders.

The new Fall Collection is truly the most beautiful yet. Each piece is handmade and reflects the craftsmanship of the artisan.


So if you haven’t heard of Noonday Collection please take a moment to get to know this amazing company and their heart for advocating for the poor and passion for adoption.

Have a great day !
