I'm thinking...

About doing this wonderful DIY project found on Design*sponge. I have a bright kelly green bathroom and I think this would look lovely. And so easy!

How fun!

Check out these jewels by German designer Denise Julia Reytan. Her amazing talent to upcycle things into beautiful pieces of art is stunning. And if you look a little deeper into her background she seems like quite the world traveler, studying in Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, and Greece. How interesting!

Lovely placemat

I'm not a big placemats fan, however I think that this graphic one by Kathy Mellor is so beautiful. It is so frilly and fun, I think I'd love to have a print of it in my kitchen.

Purtty Paper

Have you heard of The Paper Nut? They make beautiful wedding invitations and letterpress cards. I am particularly in love with the giraffe card.

Sunday Brunch

Are you having a Sunday Brunch today? Or just relaxing? Or curing a hangover? You must try McClure's Spicy Bloodly Mary Mix. I tried some when at the Brooklyn Flea Market and I have to say the best mix I have EVER had.

Some of my other favorites things for bloody marys? Add in some green olive juice and garnish with peperoncini (I promise it's the best.)

Summary for awhile

Being we have been mia for a bit here is a list of fabulous things that we love.

Furniture by german designer valentin löllmann. So unique and GORGEOUS.

Such wonderful and useful laptop bags by Portal. When I get one someday this might have to be my first accessory.

Lovely letterpress prints by onecanoetwo which their calendar this last years was one of my all time favorites. I came so close to buying it many times.

All see via our favorite Design*sponge.

When I'm preggers...

Whenever that day comes I would love to have this cradle. I think it is absolutely beautiful. Seen on Design Mom, this Leander Cradle can suspend from the ceiling or hang from a stand. I think I prefer the stand version.

P.S . Congrats to our friends Aaron and Ginger who had Emma Olivia this morning. We are all very excited to meet her!

Love your pet?

Put it on your calendars to go check out the First Pet Event at Blueberry Deluxe Boutique. Raffle proceeds and a percentage of the sales go towards supporting local organizations that help rescue pets. There will also be fun things going on like a pinup dogwash, petacures, kissing booth, facepainting and all sorts of animals. Sounds like fun!

Coffee, Cookies & Crafts Oh My!

This Saturday, April 24th, go check out Coffee, Cookies & Crafts Indie Craft Fair & Craft Supply Swap Meet (wow that's a mouth full). Some of our friends in the PHX DIY group will be there showing their stuff from 12-5pm at Bragg’s Pie Factory (1301 W Grand Avenue in downtown Phoenix).

Is is going to be a wonderful day with local artisans, crafting, a swap meet for craft supplies, tutorials, and free cookies & coffee....sounds like a perfect way to spend your Saturday.

SOOOOOOO genious

Ok this is the most beautiful idea ever! And kudos to Oscar Diaz for conceptually designing this. Now only if it really existed and I could buy it. Seen on Design Mom, this calendar appears over time with the ink soaking the next number within a 24 hour period. Truly amazing.

DIY project that will light up your life.

Found on Design*Sponge, I just feel in love with these diy paper lanterns by bbb craft sisters. How lovely are they? Don't they just make you feel more calm and happy by looking at them? They would be wonderous for a wedding.

I heart.

This series of book illustrations by Jane Mount. I wonder what it would look like if I tried to draw my books...probably not nearly as good and adorable as these. Maybe someday when spare time exists.

Favorite Living In

Do you guys ever see the "Living In" posts on Design*Sponge. Every week she picks a movie and finds items similar to the places, costumes, sets, etc. This last week Amy chose to do A League of Their Own, a great movie and I think my favorite "Living In". Check out what she found.
