Simply me day

I must confess....i am an accessory girl. I love my jewelry and i love my bags.....well.....o.k.,

i love my shoes....

dang...

i love it all....but in reality....i think the one thing that always stands out is a gorgeous piece of jewelry.

Today girls is going to be a great day.

My friend Jamie wanted to show you a bit of her shop...









I met Jamie about a year ago.....when we found each others blogs.....and i've been hooked ever since. We even attended the same event together....Heather Bullards Parisian affair in California......but the

nutty thing was...we didn't know that each other was there.....so we didn't get to meet face to face.....

and i'm still kicking myself...because i saw her across the crowd...and thought to myself..she looks SO familiar....

one day Jamie....one day.


Jamie and i have the same trials and tribulations with our "girls". Even though her daughter is a newly teen...and my little girl is just 7.....we seem to be going thru the same things....and it's been really refreshing to hear her calm me down and take the time to just let me know what is normal. Thank you Jamie..I appreciate our friendship...you ROCK.





Be still my heart.....i saw this piece on her site...and thought....perfection.....i love crowns.













and anything with an old key has my name all over it.

Back off girls.....

this one has kasey written all over it.












Jamie has so GRACIOUSLY decided to host a giveaway of one of her beautiful handmade pieces....
and i am honored to help.

The scoop:

Just check her shop out here at Simply Me ART....come back
and comment ......
tell my what your favorite piece is...

i know...it's going to be tough to choose just one thing...but i know you can do it.

She will choose one lucky winner and i'll let you know next week.

You can also check out her darling blog { here }.

Have a great weekend girlies.....it'll be a long one here...no school today OR monday....grrrr.

I love her shop! Added her to my favs list-thank you for introducing Jamie and her shop to me (dh tightly clutches his credit card)!!! My fav piece is so hard to choose--I really love the framed vases with the jewels and I also love the Charme necklace--my daughter and I have a dream of spending the summer in France just wandering around with no particular schedule-hence the love of this piece! Thanks for the chance to win a piece from Jamie's shop!

Backyard Candle Co. said...

It is all so beautiful, but what caught my eye right away was the cuff. I hope you have a great weekend as well. My boys don't have school Monday either, at least I can sleep in cause I won't have to get them up!

Tracey said...

Well Jamie knows I love her jewelry and her blog! She is amazingly talented!! I am really liking all of her vintage sparkle rings, but right now I think my favorite piece is her "revelation" necklace...stunning!

:) T

Laura said...

oooh...what beautiful jewelry! amazing! i've been looking lately for a bracelet that really makes a statement and her "above all else" bracelet is perfect! i'm keeping my fingers crossed!
p.s. maybe you should drop a hint to your hubby about that key necklace. wouldn't it be lovely to find that in your christmas stocking?...

lherlihy said...

Rouge est Monet and Fleur Blanche caught my eye.....lovely use of vintage details, so fun to wear, I am sure!!!

traci said...

she knows i love her jewels too. isn't she great!!!! i am thinking that the Corbeau vintage necklace is calling my name. stunning. have a great weekend kasey.

m said...

OH MY! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS GIRL'S WORK! My fav would be the cuff bracelet---goregeous!!! Has my name all over it!

mrsatch said...

Oh dear! That was dangerous...must.have.every.one. But, I fell in love with Evolve!!

Vintage Junky said...

Well, this was easy... I just went into my etsy favorites (that I am hoping my husband will find for some birthday and Christmas ideas.) I really wanted one piece called Antoinette, but I can't seem to find it anymore, so I choose Noir et Blanc. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Smiles!
Michelle

Jackie said...

I LOVE Jamie's work. I have lots of her beautiful pieces - I love all of it, but Hidden, Corbeau and Illustrious are my top 3 right this second. What a fun giveaway!!

jules said...

WoW! Some incredible jewelry! She is truly amazing!!! I would say the Tempting piece is one of my favs...but how can a girl choose just one? By the way...waiting to hear how much the daybed weighs...no rush...but still....maybe after the kids go back to school and you have a breather...I know that feeling...usually takes me about four days to catch up....J

Farmgirl Paints said...

She's very talented. My favorite piece was the saints and sinners necklace. Beautiful:) Have a great weekend Kasey.

Leah C said...

I've admired Jamie's beautiful jewelry for some time now:) I especially like the "Evolve" necklace...the sparkle, the pearls, & a key...so lovely. And her "Time and Again" piece, the vintage clock, wow! You know, Christmas will be here soon; time to give hubby a hint:)

Life At Camellia Cottage said...

Wow, she does have some lovely pieces! My favorite is the one titled 'angelic'. Please count me in for the giveaway! Becky

Elle said...

Beautiful stuff! I love the Corbeau necklace, just stunning! What a fun giveaway!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Kasey,
I love Jamie's jewelry too, I have a few pieces and they are always noticed when I wear them. The piece I'm liking at Jamie's store right now is Heaven and Earth, the religious pieces seem to be my favorites. I noticed your giveaway when I was puttering around Twitter this morning.
~Tracie

the wild raspberry said...

kristin said...

So glad you sent me her way! Her work is amazing, talk about one talented girl! Her blog is fun to read, being a mom of three, it's nice to know your not going through it all alone. The corbeau caught my eye, I can imagine wearing it with my favorite outfit! Have a great day! Kristin
PS..love your blog!!

shannon said...

I love the names of her jewlery- so romantic. And I'm with you Kasey- my favorite piece is the one with the adorned key!! It looks like a perfect length and love that it's dark.

Anonymous said...

Beautiful jewelry! Thanks for sharing the site. Guess I have to have the Corbeau necklace - so fun!!!

Kimberly said...

Oh my. Beautiful vintage jewelry. I love the purse with the champagne rose on it that is not for sale. sigh.

Christina said...

You were right, it is all amazing! My favorite thought is the key and lock!

Jen said...

I'll take one of everything! J/K! I really do like it all but Victoire caught my eye!

Angie said...

REALLY? Just ONE?? ummmm oh I can't decide between the Enter at your own risk although something tells me i'd have to fight you for it! ;)
or the VI cuff.

Debby - Romancing the Bling said...

I love Jamie's creations! One of my recent fav's is Evolve! It just lovely with just the right amount of Bling!
I have also been a long time follower of Jamie's Blog and Etsy sites. Thank you Jamie for another opportunity to hopefully win!
Kasey, I am a firly new vister to your blog and I adore you and your family! Thank you for sharing your life with so much humor!
Take care,
Debby

Teresa said...

I love the Love Birds necklace. Such pretty pieces!
teresacline2001[AT]yahoo[DOT]com

lisakay said...

Jamie, your jewelry is gorgeous! I am awed and inspired by your creativity. Just one more reminder that you can do what you dream! And to pick just one? That's crazy! I do really like the
Discotheque earrings, among everything else!

lindsay said...

Such beautiful jewelry! I love how Jamie has an eye for the inherent beauty of a vintage piece and is able to either construct it or deconstruct it into something modern yet timeless.

My favorite? The Pretty Little Pearl earrings. Everything was beautiful, but the earrings are something I would wear every day! Plus I love the surprise of something so tiny but so beautiful.

Amanda @ Bits and Pieces said...

Oh boy, so MANY beautiful things! But, to pick just one I have to go with the Appentence necklace (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=31879313), it's lovely! Thanks for introducing me to the shop. Have a great weekend!

Jingle said...

Wow! This is beautiful stuff! I really like the necklace called Tempting. Each element seems to hold secrets. It's like they are each telling different strands of an intricate story that just draws you in to hear the tale.

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Good heavens Kasey! How do you pick a favorite from that shop? It's all so beautiful!! I love the little Eiffel Tower necklace (don't remember its name...something Amour?) and of course, the crown choker you showed is amazing! Also the embellished clutches...I could go on of course! Thanks for introducing us to your friend!

(oh, and you ought to live here...it's only a 3 day weekend! ha!)

Miss•Elena•Eous said...

loooooove that first piece of jewelry! I must have it! I'm a bit accessory obsessed...

Cowgirl in the City said...

I love the Fleur Blanche necklase. Adore it!

Tracy is ... Loving Pretty Things said...

I simply cannot choose just one. AND - the fact that I am not typically a rule follower (ie: constantly crossing the double yellow line on the road, talking on my cellphone even though the law clearly forbids it in the car, pushing the envelope in my daughter's uniform dress code....) - I will choose 2. :)

Her stuff is OH SO fabulous - and I'm quickly adding these to my christmas list.

I love Fleur Blanche AND Appetence. Both are so fun. I think I'm leaning toward Appetence, but then as I type that, I'm feeling like I'm cheating on my love for Fleur Blanche. See the dilemma?

OK - I will go now. Keep drooling before I add more to this comment.

xoxo Kasey - so grateful for YOU in my life!

Sharla said...

your kidding?!?! How do I pick a favorite? I love the Fleur de Moka necklace but the Fleur Blanche one is beautiful to...hhmmm:)

Kelly said...

Wow! Her designs are amazing!! I had an entire list of ones that I liked. However, the Noir et Blanc necklace was incredible. That's my favorite, followed by the Absolu Etincellent Deux bracelet. Incredible!!

jociegal said...

Uhm - this is really hard to pick - they are all so stunning. I would have to say however that the VI Cuff Sept is my favorite. It reminds me of my Grandma's old jewelry from the 50's. She had some beautiful things and I remember just loving when I got to look at it with her. Very beautiful.

Tracey said...

I think the pretty little pearl earrings are so wonderful. Pearls always seem so "lady like" to me. Oh cute to wear with everything.

Sarah said...

Oooh I love Evolve! I want it!!! I want it!! That is my absolute favorite! My next favorite is enter at your own risk.
Fabulous creations! Thanks for sharing Kasey!

Alisha said...

I love the Jeweled Creme Flower Pin. It is so unique and beautiful..

Mama Goose said...

Oooooh. The vintage sparkle ring is right up my alley! Love it!

paige said...

jamie's work is gorgeous. i ordered precessional from her a few weeks ago & was so pleased as it was even more lovely in person.
i might need to back off on the rosary-esque addiction as smk's bestie told me last night, 'miss paige, i see you have so many cross peices...i love them though'..
empress is probably my fave
but i'd love your key one too miss kasey

Marlene said...

I'm a fan/admirer of Jamie and her creations. I own several pieces of her jewelry and purses. Right now, my favorites are the 2 vintage bottles. She's such an amazing artist!!!

Have a great weekend to all!!

Marlene

Veronica said...

Everything is so gorgeous! Thanks for introducing me to her shop! I realy love the Pretty Little Pearl Earrings. I love pearls, its also my birthstone.

Crystal said...

I LOVE the piece at the top of your post, but I didn't see it on her site, maybe I'm blind!? Maybe it sold! But I WANT it! I love, love, love it!!
On her site though, I love the embellished clutch! So chic and feminine!
Have a great day!

Jerri said...

Love all of Jamie's stuff... I want, oh I mean, I need the "If Looks Could Kill", bracelet. I really need to be wearing it today!! (anyways) Good Luck with your looonnnggg kiddos weekend! {smiles} I know you guys will have fun!

The Flying Bee said...

I just started reading her blog. Love it! Her work is amazing! Without a doubt, my faves are Enter at your own risk and Hidden, but I can not get that Fleur Noir Clutch out of my mind! It's fab! Thank you both for the chance at the giveaway!

xo,
Adrienne

Renee said...

my favorite is Tour d Amour necklace...it is beatiful

Kim said...

I love the tour d amour necklace, but most of all I love all of her photos. I could just take some of them and put them in frames on my wall. I can see a group of them now by my makeup counter.

Shawn Seay said...

It's all gorgeous. I love the lock and key with the pearls...beautiful. thanks for sharing your sight with us!

Jamie said...

I love Jamie & not just because we have the same name & we both call our girls Sassy. Her jewelry pieces are amazing! I have one of her rings & love it! I get all kinds of compliments on it. It is hard to choose a favorite piece. I'm loving the Above All Else bracelet a lot so, I'll pick that.

Have a great weekend!

Mrs.LifeAccounts said...

Oh my, they are all beautiful! I love the Corbeau necklace, it speaks to me!

Nancy said...

I have made a purchase from her beautiful creations and love looking at her etsy shop. Will now have to check out her blog. But how do you choose just one? I love Fiona- but they are all wonderful!
Nancy N

Kati said...

Just one? Really? Just one? It's too hard...i can't do it....
Okay for the sake of following the rules, I choose "Return to Me" or maybe "French Kiss"...no wait, the vintage embellished clutch Fleur Noir. But I really like the bracelet ...I told you it was too hard...
Beautiful jewels! Thanks for sharing your friend with us. I think I (& my credit card) will get to know her well.

Rosemary said...

I love Jamie, and her shop!!
I have several of her pieces. She is a great friend. I love her new pear pearl earrings!!
I'm so glad I found your blog through hers.
Please visit my blog as I am also having a giveaway.

kchal11267 said...

WOW - her jewelry is just what I have been looking for! If I don't win, I just may have to get myself a belated birthday present - will be hard to pick which one - I think favorite necklace is Anais... but also loved timeless, tempting, cascade, & enter at your own....

andrea said...

Love the Fleur blanche...such beautiful jewelry...

Victoria said...

Beautiful, beautiful things. Funny thing about jewelry... sometimes I think it is all about the necklace, and then at other times I am nothing but earrings. But more and more, I find myself drawn to the BRACELETS. Everything important I do, I do with my hands:) The piece that speaks to me is "Provocative." Love love love it. Thanks for showing me such a fun store!

Colleen said...

Wow! The Key, The Key!! It's mine! I love it and the Anais necklace. It is all so beautiful and feminine.

Brenna LaPray said...

So many things to like. I think I would pick the French Kiss Necklace. What a great store! Thanks for sharing. I'll check out her blog too.

Emily said...

As if I could pick just one! But if I must I'd pick "Renowned" anything with a cameo is priceless!

anniedavis said...

I love the Simply Little Pear earrings!

Beth Gales said...

I love the "Temptiing" necklace! great finds and good prices, too! :)

Simply Mel said...

I really don't know how you expect me to pick one. If I have to pick it's Angelic. Plz pick me.

a little bit vintage said...

Wow....she is one talented lady! Love her shop! If I had to pick just one thing, I would have to say that the lock and key necklace is my fave. Thanks for introducing us to her! ;) Have a great weekend!

I wish I could create pieces like this!!
I love the Vintage Sparkle Ring City Lights as well as the Fiona bracelet, too hard to decide.

northern cottage said...

oh oh oh beauty!! it WAS hard to choose but I'd say my fav would be:
the necklace Pour Toujours from this page: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vl_other_1&listing_id=30138175 -- wouldn't that look lovely on a cream colored sweater??

Valerie said...

So that wasn't easy! But if I had to choose a favorite, the "Rouge est Monet" necklace would be a gorgeous piece to own! Thanks for such a cool giveaway. Your friend is incredibly talented.

I've been drooling over Jamie's stuff ever since I found her a few months ago. She inspires me in my jewelry making. I've recently started decorating antique bottles so I love your antique framed bottles in her shop (and every piece of jewelry! :O) )

Lara said...

Oh....Be Still My Heart! Her work is just breathtakingly beautiful! I have made her page a favorite...just in time for the Holidays! I truly love everything, but the piece that immediately caught my eye right on your post was "Enter At Your Own Risk". My son and I have a little saying we say to each other about how he has the "key to my heart" and he has a little collection of padlocks he has randomly found. He would go crazy if he saw this around my neck! : )
My fingers are crossed! Thank you Kasey!
