I must have broken tons of little trinkets in that loathsome kiln. My history with ceramics makes these pieces by Abby Berkson all the more wonderful.
She’s selling mugs, bowls, vases, and even necklaces in her Etsy Shop.
Sigh. Doesn’t this luggage from GetReadySetGo make you dream of vacationing at some great places?
Like taking a safari…
These messenger bags make me want to travel to Italy, or anywhere in Europe, really.
I would love to take this on a fun seafaring adventure.
Or maybe just take a trip to grandmother’s house. It may be boring, but at least you’ll have some attractive luggage.
I’ve really been reluctant to post this one because there are only two left and well, I want one, but here it is:
Yes, it’s the prettiest and cutest thing ever. Katie Vernon of Chipmunk Cheeks created it. Now go off and buy the last two, so I can spend my money on bills instead of art.
I’ve also had my eyes on this spring bear.
Isn’t he grand? From Lizzy Stewart.
Amanda James has some great prints in her etsy shop. Enjoy these cute, colorful creatures.
Sasquatch Hearts Nessie – My favorite!
I love this camel print.
And this whale – the detail is amazing.
I strongly believe there are two types of people in this world: those whose lives would be adversely affected if pillows didn’t exist and those whose lives wouldn’t. If pillows disappeared today, you can bet I’d be in a perpetual state of crankiness. I’m a pro lounger. I like to lay on things, especially pillows, or drape them over me in a “I’m going to hide from my problems” type of way. I like to nap on my couch with a pillow on every side.
My boyfriend is the other type of person. Beware of these people – the pillow haters (and by extension life haters, puppy haters, and cupcake haters). He thinks they’re extraneous fluff in life.
Today is the day to celebrate the pretty pillows in your life, or at least the ones you wish were in your life. Appreciate the things that make your day comfy, relaxing, and soft.
Go team pillows!
My bestie pointed this one out.
It seems like owl pillows are everywhere.
I’m a sucker for anything under the sea.
Coffee is my favorite thing, so it makes sense to have it in pillow form.
This pillow is breathtaking. I love the fabric and the colors are great. Plus, love geography.
More under the sea gems. This one is made with hand felted Australian Merino wool.
Have a tea party on pillows?
How do you like your pillows, er, eggs?
I feel very silly today.
Which type of person are you? A pillow lover or hater?
It’s no surprise that I love dinosaurs. I have a tattoo of an apatosaurus on my calf. But really, I’d like to take it up a notch and deck my body out in dinosaur bling.
like these over at verameat:
dino love bone – the description says “worn by Miranda July.” I knew I loved her/this necklace/both.
For the water-loving vegetarian:
And for the hungry carnivore:
Oh, but woe is me, what a hefty price tag. Hello, etsy [warning, i may have gone a little overboard.]
triceratops brooch [what a great brooch!]
As you can see, I’m quite the enthusiast. What do you think? Are the etsy finds a similar cheaper alternative? What ones would you wear?
Also, verameat has quite the selection of monster, vampire, and animal jewelry, and it’s all magnificently done.
Well, I guess it’s a month away. I am hyped to share some not so average cards with you. They’re all handmade, so less Hallmark-consumer stuff.
Free download of these at Bunny Cakes.
Because I freaking love dinosaurs!
For the cynic.
And finally this one…
I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw it. It’s like someone has been listening to my conversations. Is this too much? Cheese alert. The beau and I don’t say “I love you.” Instead we saw “Olive You.” I guess we’re not so original.
There’s been a lot of yarn in my house lately. The cats are going crazy. I don’t know how they can open drawers to get at it. I’ve tried my first hand-stitched embroidery [pics to come], and I’ve got some crochet and knitting supplies strung about. I like to pretend I’m good at these things. If I were any good at needle craft, knitting, or crocheting, I’d make these things, instead of spending [or dreaming of spending] the money on etsy.
This cowl that can wrap around as a hoodie. It comes in all sorts of colors, but I really like the burnt yellow/green look.
Ah, these legwarmers look so cozy and cute. What do you think? Would you wear them?
This versatile shawl can be worn multiple ways.

Ready to stay warm?
It so happens that I’m in a long distance relationship with my two best friends. And when they’re upset or hurting, having a bad day or broken hearted, I just feel awful that I can’t be there to console them.
What better way to cheer someone up than with freshed baked goodies? Meg’s Creations in a Jar are “layered with love.” She makes cookie mixes, soups, cupcakes, brownies, and pies. Since they’re in jars, you can ship them anywhere.
How pretty are these pies?
And when your long-distance loved one is feeling under the weather, send them some soup.
Your friends will be feeling better in no time. <3
