Pin Cushion

I'm in need of a new pin cushion. This one from Heather Bailey caught my eye a little while ago. I think it's time to treat myself and do a little sewing for me.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Ferry Staverman

These alluring paper sculptures are from Dutch artist Ferry Staverman. I've seen them making their rounds in the Internet and I thought I'd share them with you.

If you're lucky to live near New York, her work is currently on exhibit in Slash: paper Under the Knife at the Museum of Art and Design through April 4th 2010.

I love the beautiful palettes, modern yet classic. Well I'm off to finish painting my kitchen, I love starting the morning with some color inspiration.

Featured Item - Retro Baby

This cute little retro style dress is a One of a Kind (OOAK). It combines the classic look of yesterday with the cute chic of tomorrow.

Sixe 2T/3T it's a timeless Classic and it's on sale this week in my

Banana Ice Cream Kids etsy shop!!

It's made from a cotton/poly blend so you'll never have to think about ironing. And the great thing about this style of dress is its versatility. Wear it on it's own in the summer or over jeans and a t-shirt in winter!!

Happy Monday everyone!

Tea For You and Me

I just had to show you these tea cups from Wedding Things! Aren't they adorable in the shape of hearts and I just love the pink and gold together.

Notice the old-fashion rock candy swizzle sticks posing as stir sticks. Little details like are simple but so elegant.

Painting and Crafting

I'm painting the kitchen/dining room today, I'm so excited! The color is called fusilli, it's like a yellowy, orange, cream color. That's the best I can describe it?! I've also took apart the ugly 60's chairs to paint and recover in a nice blue and brown shantung fabric. They are going to look fantastic when it's all done!

So while I'm waiting for coats of paint to dry I'd thought I'd tell you about these new tags I listed. Each one is hand punched, painted, and assembled by moi and finished off with some organic chenille.

And these little flower embellishments look good enough to eat.
I hand painted each one, then added a little glitter for some extra magic!

What's everybody up to today?

There's a snow storm outside and I don't have to work tomorrow :)
