The yarns are so wonderfully colorful and fun...
Each skein just speaks volumes!
The amazingly talented woman behind Downeyfibers is a mother of FIVE! and washes, dyes and spins all of her own yarn. Even those who don't knit or crochet would find something they simply must have from this shop :)

There were four of them, two large and two small. After a minor mishap on the way out the door (ceramic lid + hard floor + some lack of coordination on my part = two pieces of lid) which was fixed with the ever-important super glue we took them home, gave them a bath and they now house our flour, sugar and rice. It is a much cleaner alternative to having the bags open and spilling every time you moved them.
Adorable in a figure flattering shape and from the exquisite vintage closets of leasvintage, (a shop that has been in my favorites for a while now) this coat is sure to keep you warm and professional in a very affordable way ;)

The photography in JenniPenni's shop is amazing. Its simple, fresh and occasionally moody.

The darker one is Mona Lisa (we call her Lisa) and the lighter one is Bowser. They are both females and by my guess Lisa is about 3 months old and Bowser is 2 months.
They sure are darling aren't they?

Pants are typically easier to wear than the business skirt and these wide leg trousers from refinerydesigns is the perfect basic staple to start your outfit.
They can be easily worn with a variety of tops to give them an equal variety of looks. This bright red blouse from Thrush would tuck perfectly into the high waist and show that you have spunk and style.
Finish off the look with these classic black pumps from nerdybird
Maybe add a contrasting wood bangle from inbloomdesigns, and you're good to go!
This time we'll start with a skirt suit from DressUpDollVintage. Adorable on its own, no?
That's why we should keep the blouse simple and classic, like this crisp white one from LittleWhiteDresser.
Keep the shoes with a smaller heel but a burst of color, these red ones from TheRubyKitten would work at work. You could still walk around without your feet screaming at you and you would feel oh-so-stylish.
And classic jewelry like a large pearl ring from beatomicbeauty or pearl necklace from ruthkim will complete this look

Last Friday I received a custom order for a beanie. It was to be knit in white with maroon letters and gold outlining with a brim. I tried really hard to make this beanie perfect as it was for a member of the one and only Fraternity on campus and perhaps others in the group would see the hat and maybe perhaps want one for themselves and I think it turned out rather well, don't you?

For this installment of my Friday Feature series I decided to go through the Pounce feature on Etsy and find someone who has yet to have had any sales, and whilst browsing, I found this little gem of a store! MyWayToSay offers some very cool wire-wrapped rings, chic earrings and the occasional necklace.
She wraps her jewelry in velvet gift boxes and she is happy to include a special note if the item purchased is a gift!
Head on over to her store and see what cool new jewelry you can find :) And, as always, if you click on one of the above pictures, it will take you directly to that listing in the shop

“If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?”
I would probably buy a house first, good investment and all that ;) After that I would travel the world, visit all the places I haven't yet been (which is a lot). Then I would fill my backyard with all kinds of fiber-producing animals, sheep, llamas, dogs, goats, rabbits, etc and have a big area just for the garden part. I would build myself a studio where I could process the yarns myself, and dye them and spin them and knit in peace :)
Any left over money would go to an Elephant Sanctuary!
Remember back in this post when Matt and I first started hanging out and we took Delilah for a picnic? And I secretly (or maybe not so secretly…) thought that he was the coolest person on the planet for wanting to take my hamster on a picnic? Well, for my birthday, we did it again!
We took her down the twisty slide a few times, down the short straight slide and just let her run around to her heart’s content :) It was a super fun trip for all involved.
*Oh and on a separate note, tomorrow I will be announcing some BIG news! So stay tuned ;)
