Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes

The perfect eye makeup kit for all of us that are makeup apply inept. Comes with brushes too! A little pricey, but worth it! Found here.

Nifty Gifty

I'm tired of plain old wrapping paper. This year I'm thinking this...


...or maybe this.

While we're on wrapping paper, you should make this. I can totally see it for a little girls birthday party!

Ornament Wreath

This is perfect for those after-Christmas sales. 80% off? Yes, please.

The directions say it takes EIGHTY ornaments to complete. Maybe go for 90% off this year.

Directions here.

Comptoir Sud Pacifique Perfume

"Vanille Abricot" by Comptoir Sud Pacifique
Introduced in 1992 in response to the overwhelming success of Vanille and Fruits Sauvages, Vanille Abricot offers the perfect balance between fruit and spice. Imagine deep Tahitian vanilla spice enhanced by soft and sensual apricot.
Notes: Apricot, Jackfruit, Papaya, Tahitian Vanilla, Sugar Candy. Style:
Soft. Sensual. Feminine.

Yeah, what those people say. I wore this perfume for years and got ton of compliments on it. I even had a husband hunt it down for his own wife. You'll smell fantastic! Order it here.

Twigs and Honey Headband

Photo Credit: Amelia Lyon

Ooooooooh, this headband is awesome! Although I'm totally not cool enough to pull this off, I loooooooove them (you can tell because I use a lot of "ooooooooooooo"'s)

Check out her store here.

Hole In The Wall.

How cool is this? My kids would climb through this for hours and hours. Thank goodness I live in a rental--or I'd be cutting through walls tonight.

Red shoes? Yes.

I'm loving these dresses by Butter By Nadia. Think of the ways I could wear this one (favorite is the one to the far left)

"My Kids Rock" Tee

I have an intense need to own this shirt. Dammit my kids DO rock (that's rocker talk for ya) and my chest really needs to get in on the advertising of that fact.

I should buy it. Buy it for HUMANKIND!

I should also not have a Mountain Dew at 9:45 pm. The End.

"Vote" stamp

This stamp. I want to stamp everything outgoing (which is mostly bills and my children's foreheads) Quick--make it come back in stock for me.

"Love" Print

I think I've become a little print-happy on here, but look at these! Her entire shop is fantastic--makes me wish I could paint.

"How We Met" Print

Isn't this "How We Met" print so great? Maybe for an anniversary present.

Fourth of July

We're going to a friend's house for 4th of July. But if we weren't, I'd so be doing some of these. Soooo Martha.

Paper Flowers

I'm loving this tutorial for making paper flowers. So easy. Now the tricky part is to figure out what to use them for. Kate's birthday IS coming up....

Amy Butler Paper

Did you know Amy Butler makes PAPER? PAPER! I think I'm going to do the backs of my kitchen cabinets in this paper. Whadda think? How would you attach the paper? Just tape? That's how it's stuck on here.

By the way, that's MY cabinet pictured. I don't think I've ever used my actual pictures on this blog!

Bird Mobile Pattern

Found these at Spool. Am thinking of making them for little accents in Kate's room (you know, to go with my Etsy squiggly bird obsession)

I bet I could crank out of a couple of these during a movie. And it would give me an excuse to buy little bits of overpriced fabrics. Sold!

Find the pattern here.

(Update: Oh, I just thought about this! What about Christmas tree ornaments? Oooooooh!)

YOU work for ME

Now I've give you people lots of ideas. Now you do your part. Find me these floating glass fishes! I've tried Googling "floating glass fish" and "fake glass fish" NOTHING! HEEEEEEEEEEEEELLP!

(oh, and I found the above picture linked to an all Japanese website. Not so helpful with ordering. Even emailed the website IN ENGLISH. Strangely enough, no response)

But while searching found these shoes:

So really pretty much the same thing.


Hilarious! I think I have to have this. How funny!

(okay, upon closer reading it's apparently supposed to reduce cell phone radiation to your head. But I would just buy it for looks)

Embroidered Sweater

From Forever 21. I love the neckline. Would you order this? Forever21's clothes always fit weird on me. Hmm.

Doll Bed

SO perfect for Kate's room. But SO expensive. Here.

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Mom, don't read this...

..well, you can read if you want. But don't say I didn't warn you.

This totally cute lingere at Forever21 is listed as "loungewear". Really?

Schizophrenic Bedding

All from Pottery Barn. Love them ALL.

Clothespin Doll Kit

The author of Posie Gets Cozy blog has come out with her clothespin dolls again. There was such a rush for these stinking things last time I didn't get one. BUT NOT THIS TIME!

While I wish I could say I'll sit down with the kids and let them go willy-nilly, I won't. I'll make tiny little dolls after they're in bed and then put them in Kate's room.

Field Trip II Print

Oh, man. I've bought another print for Kate's room.

Here's what I've learned from Etsy:

1. I like birds.

2. Squiggly birds.

3. The end.

Canon Fisheye Lens

This blog is quickly becoming "Thing I Imagine I Would Love" I luuuuuuurve this lens. I visit it about once a week and sigh. Wouldn't these make the funniest pictures?

LayersClothing Swimsuit

Need new swimsuit that is not black. Thinking about this one. When did so little fabric get so expensive?

Solar System Bedding

This bedding would be awesome in Colin's room. Except Blake would steal it and sleep with it. I'm not kidding.

Oh, since I'm here. Look at these! What a good idea for putting next to a rocker for night-time reading.

Amy Butler Wallflower

Need a project for this fabric. Also needs it to be way less than 10 bucks a YARD!

Mustache Minis

How hilarious would these decals be stuck to a guest bathroom mirror? Or a kids mirror? Or for your mother-in-law?

Birdy Print

I've ordered this for Kate's room. If you know me, you know I've already changed my mind on the colors for her room. I'm going to have find this a home somewhere.

Look at her other cute prints. I want these for our playroom. I think I could just paint them myself though (and change the colors)

Paper Source

My paper porn store. Waaaay expensive, but maybe for a special project.

Just look:

Almost better than fabric, right? Well, probably way better because odds are I'd actually use the paper.
