bread and butter

bread and butter has such simple pretty paper things.  i definitely want to try out some of their paper cutting ideas.

love this way to display photos without having to frame them all. even cuter with polaroids, like above.

birthday boy

i can't believe it.  jacob is one!  here are a some fun pictures from his party.  we all wore animal hats.  i had wanted to get him this little wheely bug bumblebee since he was born so this was our one present to him (believe me, he doesn't need more stuff).  and i've always wanted an occasion to make these cupcakes.

perfect for spring

 to buy these raincoats.  they're pricey.


"100% pure honey joy".  they are all natural, non-sticky little miracles.  you can even buy them with a splash of lemon.

my baby is turning 1!

here are the invites.  if i could make invitations for a living,  i would be very happy. i had so much fun making these and i couldn't decide on one design so i made a few.  they're a little late to be sending out (friends and family, you'll be getting one soon) so plan ahead!

haircuts and such

well folks, i think it's time for a new look.  i'm tired of long straight hair that sticks flat against my face and looks raggly on the ends.   i'm considering the new kate moss, heidi klum "fringe" cut with bangs and all and a bit shorter. am i crazy? totally delusional?  i can't tell if it's ugly.

here are some pictures of katie "tomkat", who, i'll admit it. she's won me over.  i like how she can wear this haircut in so many ways!  can i pull it off??  readers, i need comments on this one. tell me your thoughts.

it has recently come to my attention that cupcakes are the next billion dollar industry.  of course they are.  have you ever met a single person that didn't like cupcakes?  beautiful little cupcake glassine cups here.  

and these are the delicious coconut cupcakes i made for my friend's baby shower.  they were a big hit.   (yes, i made them!)

coat tree

i think i'm a little obsessed with trees, and birds.  this coat tree is another great alternative to boring old hooks, and a little more sturdy than the tree sticker i posted about a while ago.  it can also be mounted against the wall.  by swedese.

baby carriers

these are so beautiful i'd want to wear one even if i didn't have a baby! ... well maybe not.  but aren't they so nice?  more options here.  10% of the proceeds go toward orphaned children in china.  and 20% off this month.

bouncing boy

i think it would do everyone good to bounce a little everyday.  
if only they made adult-sized sassy seats.

a little spring in my step

i know i'm not usually a yellow person, but i'm starting to really like mustard yellow.  these make me think of spring.  top shoes.  bottom shoes.

animal prints

adorable animal prints by little paper planes.  i would like to have a collection of these in jacob's room.  would they count as a 1st birthday present?
6" x 6" 

not quite yet spring

cashmere arm warmers

i've been wanting a pair of these arm warmers ever since i saw someone wearing them one saturday morning at penny cluse cafe. (they were striped).  i like how they peek out from under your shirt.  these colors are all pretty- i like them in willow.

vintage birdhouses

lovely one-of-a-kind birdhouses, hand-crafted from collaged vintage fabrics.  made by tamar mogendorff.  really pretty as a collection too.
