A few of my favorites

Here are a few of the lovelies from my favorites this week!

I love all things Irish, so Saint Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays,
I've been shopping for earrings to wear with my outfit this year, I've narrowed it down to these two!

I always have Irish Breakfast tea on the morning of St. Patricks day (and most other days of the year too now that I think about it... I'd love to have my morning cup out of this sweet cup

Having just organized my nook area, I'm thinking these cute coasters would set off the area perfectly, just under my cuppa tea! (I promise, these are the only owls this time! ;) )

This scarf would be so cute with my new peasant blouses! So pretty and spring-ish!

Remember me saying yesterday that I was in a "rainbow-ee" mood? Yup, still there. Isn't this Color Wheel necklace by tamar so pretty?

I can't say I'm a fan of elephants normally, but this teapot cozy is just too cute not to love!!

Over the Rainbow . . .

I told my mom that I was in a "rainbow-ee" mood today. Meaning that I'm thirsting for color, so this is the card I made today, filled to the brim with bright lovely colors. Go check it out in the shop!

A Few Etsy Finds . . .

Otherwise known as " I think I have an owl obsession. And maybe an obsession for mugs and cups."

Today I wanted to share some of the sweet things I love on etsy....

It's no secret, I love owls...
Gywn is my little owl on my bookshelf with doilies for eyes and wings (she's actually a pin cushion, but Shh, don't tell her!) and Cedric is a terra-cotta and ceramic owl on my bed (he is really a garden decoration, but I couldn't bear to banish him outside). :)

I am completely obsessed with Woolcrazy's *adorable* fuzzy creations. I first fell in love with Sparkle her little white owl, about a year or so ago, but Jelly Bean is my new love.... I mean, a fuzzy pale green owl holding a heart? What is not to love?!
oh if I only had the spending money!!

I also love love love mugs and cups, my mugs and cups fill my bedroom and pretty much every dish cabinet in our home. This is probably because I am a voracious drinker of both coffee and tea. Sometimes both in the same day.
Here are just a few of my favorites from around etsy

How cute is this? A teacup on a mug, perfection!
by mollyhatch

*Squeal* This is SOO cute. I absolutely adore this cup, I think I've mentioned owls before. An owl mug? and Purple? I want this so bad! :D

(And look at the blue one, oooh so cute! )

This is the cutest purse ever, definitely going on my birthday list this year

Another thing I really want, I adore these earrings, so sweet and simple and feminine. I need to get more pink in my wardrobe. Alysabeths shop is so lovely, I've shopped with her before and she is so sweet!

Ha, you thought I was done with owls didn't you? Nope. :)
I absolutely love these teensy tiny owls from SongandBranch

One last for today, (though certainly not least!) I must share these absolutely adorable fabric reusable stickers from lovemaestore
I love all things tea-themed - how could I not fall in love with these sweet fabric stickers? My mom and I host many tea parties, I would just love to make a tea-planning journal using these!!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed looking at my "finds"! Do be sure to stop by their lovely shops!

Have a lovely weekend!

It's raining hearts!

Hey everyone! I thought I'd pop in and show some of the stuff I've been creating recently.

With Valentine's day right around the corner I've been making lots of things with hearts and such.
My newest umbrella card is a valentines card.

Whimsical pink clouds drop hearts instead of raindrops...

I made this cute little box about a week ago. I wanted to list it in the shop, but mom pointed out that we didn't have a box to ship it in and we didn't really know what to price it as far as shipping goes, so I'll probably be giving it as a gift or just keep it for myself :)

I found this cute vintage-valentine paper at hobby-lobby a couple months ago when we were in Phoenix. I used stickles glitter on the top to accent some of the cute images. I also took some vintage red ric-rac and wrapped it around the sides of the lid and completed it with my favorite red polka-dot ribbon.

This is another card I made a few weeks ago, it was originally for my shop, but we had heard that shipping square cards cost more to post, so I would hate for someone to buy a card and then have to pay more than usual to ship it, so we need to confirm that before we list any square cards. :) So I'll just keep this one to myself. The pink mini valentines in the shop match this card though!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a grand day!
