Crush of the Week

Happy Friday! Thank you all for your sweet birthday wishes yesterday. I had a lovely day and it was fun getting messages from all of you. :) It’s time for our regular Friday Feature, the Crush of the week. If you missed last week’s feature, it was the sweet blog,…

Featured and Forty

Happy Birthday to Me – I turn Forty today. Ack.  Do I have to be a grown up now? I sure hope not. (This might explain my verse and quote of the week, in case you were wondering) Here are some Birthday ideas I saw that made me crack up:…

Ribbon Flower T-Shirt

I was at Target last week and snapped this photo with my handy dandy phone spy camera. Cute huh? I thought so too. I also thought I could make it just as cute. And pinker. Because, if you can, why wouldn’t you? :) Here’s mine: (I’m finding I’m fairly self-conscious…

Southern Comfort for Dinner

Haha, you thought we were having whiskey for dinner didn’t you? Nope. Not tonight. :) We are having Black Eyed Pea Soup. Yum. Over the past few years I’ve come to love Southern cooking more and more. I think it comes from having traveled a little in the South, and…

Polkadot Potholder

Here is the second portion of the Polkadots, Pompoms and Potholder post. Whew. That’s a lot of “p”s. If you like to see the tutorial for the Apron, click here. So on to the potholder tutorial. Sorry about the lack of photos in these steps. I finished this up last…

Polkadots, Pompoms, and a Potholder. Oh my.

I’ve been lovin the little half aprons they have at Anthropologie. Check this one out, and this one. Don’t you love the scallops? Here’s my version, along with my matchy matchy potholder: (you can’t tell from this picture but the apron has a white waistband) What do you think? I’m…

Cue Fanfare Music. . .

Guess what made my day today??? Finding out that my Frayed Flower Headband was featured at Blue Cricket Designs! Pretty awesome right? My very first feature. Being a big ole cry baby, the whole thing brought tears to my eyes. I even added a little highlight on my sidebar for…

Spring Flowers and the Blog Crush of the Week!

Southern California is all dressed up in green and blooms. Took a little walk this week to share the beauty with you. This one’s for you Cindy . . . Ewwwwww. . . . This one reminds me of Christmas for some reason. And this one you’ll see again soon…

Bead and Bow Necklace

In your bloggy travels have you run across Disney and her fabulous blog Ruffles and Stuff? If not, I highly recommend spending some time looking through her site. I totally want to be her when I grow up. Oh wait – too late for that. I ‘m way older than…

Frayed Flower Headband

My awesome friend Becky was visiting last week (when we created the Easy Peachy Cinnamon Rolls) and she was wearing the cutest headband so of course I ripped if off her head to get a closer look at it. Not really. I asked nicely if I could copy it and she said…

Bon Appetit! Embroidered Dishtowel

Have you looked at the dishtowels at Anthropologie? They’re fairly yummy. Sweet little birds and flowers embroidered on cute patterned dishtowels, all for the low low prices of $18 – $24. hmmm. maybe not. So .  .  what to do? Make my own! :) What do you think? I looove…

Drum Roll Please . . . . .

Dollar Store Candle Holder

*** Don’t forget to check out the Scarf Giveway!    Today is the last day to enter! *** I’d been looking for a candle holder for a sweet little fat birdie I found at Micheals this month half price. I had looked all over for a wooden one and couldn’t find…

A Good Reminder

This week we had a nice short little California shower (the best kind of shower – one that doesn’t last very long haha), so I broke out the camera to take some shots of the pretty rain-soaked flowers. I snapped a shot of this little sweetie: Isn’t she pretty? It…

Liberty of London Knockoff and . . . my first Giveaway!

**** The Giveaway is now closed! nancygayle was the winner. :) Thank you to everyone who entered. **** I looooove the Liberty of London things that Target is carrying right now. They’ve got some really cute prints – so “Springy” looking. I’m finding myself making more trips to Target than…

Easy Peachy Cinnamon Rolls

My good friend Becky (her family is visiting for the week :)) and I made Easy Peachy Cinammon Rolls for breakfast. We wanted to try and find a cinnamon roll recipe that wouldn’t take forever in the morning, so we decided to try something with canned biscuits. They turned out…

My First Post!
