hooking for charity: purple stitch project.



hello friends. ♥  

meet my purple ninja... 
i'm calling her Sumire (japanese for violet, like the flower).

Sumire is headed to Camp Brainstorm in Bastrop, TX where she'll become the stealthy (and squishy) bestie to a brave girl or boy with epilepsy.

thrifted + gifted. children's books.


hello loves.

sorry for the radio silence the past few days. i have been concentrating on my little miss who has had a head cold since last weekend. she's a trouper though and looks to be on the mend! 

i'm happy to have a few moments tonight to share a few more of the goodies i thrifted while little miss + i were visiting back home in indiana this easter. (there's a song there i think. back home again in indiana... ha.)

sweet gifts from across the pond.

i was the super lucky winner of a giveaway at hiphopsideproject and this week some beautiful crochet loveliness showed up on my doorstep...


these sweet crocheted pieces were made by Sian of Strawberry Kitten. i love them so much. the wall hanging is so sweet. i can't decide if it belongs in my room on my turquoise walls or in little miss's room. the wristees are a perfect fit and i've already been wearing them around the house as the spring temps in here keep fluctuating... i think the brooch will be finding it's way onto something of little miss's soon!

(isn't Sian's business card for strawberry kitten SO cute?!?)

Sian has two great etsy shops that you should check out... Strawberry Kitten is her handmade teddy bear shop. her bears are so cute and beautifully made! Hook Yeah is Sian's crochet shop where you can find her hand cozies, wall art, and colorful flower brooches.

thanks so much to Sian and Kim of hiphopsideproject for the lovely gifts!


love.

3KCBWDAY2: a "little" help (photography challenge)


remember the elves and the shoemaker? wouldn't it be nice if we laid out our work for the next morning only to awaken to completed projects and a clean workspace? 

i think so. especially this week! what a couple of crazy days we have had.
