Tiny Dolls, Glitter, and Wings....seriously? How could that POSSIBLY be a bad thing?

It can't and that, my friends, is why I have brought these wonders together in my latest Coffee Break Designs Shrine from Retro Cafe Art

Life is a Fire. Bottle it.

Life in a Bottle

Life is like a fire. Sometimes it burns hot and other times it reduces to embers and barely warms the air around it, but it is fire. There is rage, there is warmth, there is beauty. Life is like a fire. Bottle it.
