WW: Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge, TN

Titanic Replica Ship Photo

"A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets."
- Rose from Titanic movie

The Titanic Museum is quite a surprising sight to see when driving through Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We didn't have time to tour it during our first trip, but I had to get close enough to photograph the building. The replica was built at half-scale of the original ship and still towered above me! I saved the Titanic photo to share until today since it sank on April 15, 1912.

Treasury Tuesday: Spring fairy is here

I can barely keep my feet from fluttering off the ground now that the spring fairy finally arrived in Delaware! Andreia from Rolling Ideas helped her spread sunshine sparkles during a SPSteam game. Her spring home decor ideas include yellow daffodil flower photography print by Tiny Delicate World, blue butterflies sign set by Whisper Of The Pipit and my butterfly fairy art print.

Manicure Monday: Easter Bunny Nail Art by Jamberry Nails

Easter Bunny Nail Art Accent

The weather was wonderful this weekend! My mom and I savored the sunny Saturday together by cycling through the Cape Henlopen State Park, then exploring the Lewes Tulip Festival. (Yes, you will be seeing flower photos from me for many Wordless Wednesdays to come.)

After splitting a sub from Touch of Italy at an outdoor table, we went back to her house to apply her very first set of Jamberry nail wraps. She picked Peek-A-Boo Bunny during my first party. And since she's such a sharing soul, she gave me an adorable rabbit nail wrap to use as an accent for my Carmen Ombre manicure. I am so hippity hoppity happy with my Easter nail art!

This marks my fourth jamicure, and although I wouldn't call myself an expert yet, they look better each time. I've also discovered a way to cut down trimming time for those ladies like me whose nail shapes don't match the rounded wraps. Hop to today's guest post on Katie Crafts for my Jamberry tips. Thanks to Momma for patiently helping me take pictures! Neither one of us has paid for manicures at a salon, but I look forward to making jamicures a regular mother-daughter activity.

Mothers Day Manicure Gift IdeaWe both have several nail tools already, or I'd be buying her one of the three Mother's Day gift sets that Jamberry just released. Each set includes 3 complementing nail wraps ($45 value), application kit with 2 alcohol wipes, nail scissors, nail clippers, buffer block, 2 orange sticks, rubber cuticle pusher and nail file ($12.50 value) AND bag of Sweet's Famous Salt Water Taffy from one of the oldest family-owned and operated candy factories in the U.S. for only $50. If you'd like to take advantage of the sweet deal for your mother, please find and select "Aquariann" in the list of names under party at checkout to help me reach my hostess goal before I close it on Easter.
