Please excuse the mess... I am currently rearranging my blog. :)


This weeks Monday's My Pick is a WHOLE shop! Fleurs de Pomme. Such a sweet shop! She has necklaces, brooches, rings, and hair pins (I'm so addicted to hair pins!)... Please check it out! AND, she's VERY nice! One thing I absolutely LOVE about handmade Etsy shops are that they are run by real people. I love it. Don't forget to also take a peek at her blog. She's very sweet and I'm sure she would love to hear from you! (She's also donated the prize for the vote off).

Here's what April (or Apple, her nickname) says: "Hello and welcome! Thank you so much for stopping by. All fabric flowers are made from deconstructed, thrifted clothing (sometimes vintage, always laundered) and various beads (sometimes vintage). Each flower is cut, singed and assembled by hand. Quantities of each style will depend on the size of garment used and what beads are on hand."

Just a little reminder...

Monday's My Pick ... Rose City Sweets

{Ruari sleeping at 6 months}


Ruari and I let Mike spend a couple hours doing whatever he wanted at home while we ran off to the Summit of Awesome (put on by Hello Craft). We met up with Roxana (Cositas Bellas). It was just a small little craft fair... but, we had a nice little inspiring day.

I ended up only purchasing one goodie (although I wanted to buy EVERYTHING). I bought a little brittle covered marshmallow on a stick from Rose City Sweets. The proceeds of the marshmallows were going to a school for homeless children. So, I spent my $2.

It was a VERY tasty $2! And, all the yummy samples she had! MMmmmmm. I ALWAYS love brittle and chocolate. And, this was good.

So, this weeks Monday My Pick is a whole shop: Rose City Sweets. Trust me, these are very tasty and the shop owner is VERY sweet (like her treats). And, she dresses so cute for her shows too! Please check out her shop and show her some love. Enjoy!

2) These cupcake toppers are just so much fun! Perfect for a circus themed birthday party. The listing doesn't specify, but I believe they can be customized. You will have to ask the designer. :) Please check out their shop for some great paper goodies.

Thursday three ... feeding me!

{Me and Ruari at 22 weeks}

Over at the paper mama this weeks Thursday's Three is about feeding baby... so, I thought since this is MY blog then the Paper Lady's Thursday's Three should be about feeding me! :)

1) How awesome are these nesting bowls? They are so awesome. I would love these as serving bowls. Please check out her shop! I love it!

2) These wine glasses are so beautiful. They are hand engraved! So unique and lovely. There really are some very nice engravings in this shop. Enjoy!

{Hand engraved wine glasses ... daydreemdesigns}

3) These linen napkins are adorable! As most of you know I love to do what I can to live a green life. One thing that Mike and I do is we use fabric napkins about 90% of the time. We barely ever go through a paper towel roll. These were stamped with a hand carved spoon print. Love the shop as well!
