Happy Weekend!

It's my hubby's birthday this weekend and I am headed to the door to do some shopping for the party I have planned for him with some of our close friends. I leave you with this photo by Emily, but I'll see you on Monday. Have a great weekend, friends!

Friday Freebie!

I love these Valentine's day special vector images! Go here to download.

Pictorial Webster's new stamp set is called Flora and Fauna. It consists of 14 rubber stamps and has everything from mushrooms to sea horses and from owls to pinecones, "these classic images of flora and fauna lend old-fashioned flair to your modern-day correspondence, packages, and art and craft projects." The set comes in a beautiful vintage feel box.

Paperchase: Night Owl

Paperchase's new range - Night Owl, features owls, trees, rainbows, fruit and flowers. The print is on various products and some of them are shown above. My favorite is that cute umbrella! What's yours?

Under $5!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw these owl cluster earrings at Forever 21 for only $3.80!! I must confess, I would have paid much more than that for this gorgeous pair. Would you?

Helen Gordon

Helen Gordon is a designer and a mother of three who started her own company after being frustrated of only a limited range of patterns available in kids bedding. With her background in textile designing she soon had several collections: "original hand painted images which draw on traditional fairytales, a nostalgia for the simplicity of the arts and crafts, and images which are inspired by the natural world." I love such stories when people don't give up because of frustration but inspire and do wonders! Her creation includes cushions, wallpapers, stationery, totes and aprons with lovely illustrations.

{The Love Shop}

Let's start this new month together with these inspiring words to "Never ever give up! Believe" by The Love Shop. Sweet product, sweet name!

~Big and Chunky~

If you have been reading the blog then you already know that I am one of those people who wouldn't be caught dead with jewelry on. But today, I am loving this big and chunky owl necklace made of gold coins. I know it's a leap, but I guess I am ready for it!

'Owl Always Love You' Body Butter

Who is Penelope Parsnip?
It's really more of an "idea" than a person. Penelope Parsnip is the idea that products you put on your skin are equally important as what you put in your body.
