Gorgeous Calendar

I saw these beautiful Jennifer Hill calendars featured on both design*sponge and dooce. Absolutely amazing. How great it would look in an office (if I had one) or in my kitchen. I love the concept and the title Places I Have Never Been. Of course Jennifer Hill has lots of other cool stuff too, so make sure you check her out!

How Retro!

This Etsy shop sells jewelry and accessories made from vintage buttons. The designs are a lot of fun and whimsical. Makes me want to run my hand through a button jar!

not too pink... just right

I can’t remember how I found this Etsy shop filled with little prints for your home. The art is whimsical and the colors are great. Shopping at not too pink is a very affordable and fun way to add some style to your walls.

Aren't they fun?

I've been lacking some inspiration lately. To help with my desire to find pretty (sometimes cute or fun) things, I decided to have an Etsy week. I love, love, love the philosophy behind Etsy. As their motto says, "Your place to buy and sell all things handmade." It ends up that many of the "shops" are run by mothers who have a talent for creating beautiful things!

I was quickly perusing Etsy, while waiting for the water to boil (our computer is in the kitchen), when I stumbled upon pinkdixie (really fun clothes for really fun kids). What actually drew me to the shop was this cute little smock with pears and apples all over it.

I love that the design of the dress, along with many of the fabrics the seamstress uses, is something that I could have worn when I was little (yes, a child of the 70's). She began making these smocks for her daughter to wear during meals once her daughter was pulling off the bib. It could also be used for messy activities, or even as is on a hot day!

Pinkdixie also has little baby outfits, bib sets, car seat strap covers, and lounge wear. Look at this cute lounge outfit!
