Its almost time for the Horseshoe Market, happening this weekend!

Pictured above are some of the other vendors at the Horseshoe.
I love the cake painting in the top row! lovely!

I have been getting lots of note cards ready while my mom has been making the most darling garlands. We are also working on cupcake sticks and stirsticks and
making a few aprons with some vintage fabric.

Lots of fun stuff that I hope to be able to post on my etsy shop soon!

{A Gray Day}

It's my favorite neutral color lately.
{gray}
I am pretty much simply smitten with many things gray.
Here are a few items I found
that I thought were fabulous.


from the lovely etsy shop Vintage Marquise out of France.
Isn't this beautiful?
heavenly bed frame from, that's right, Anthropoligie



new in my etsy shop!
just cannot help but feature this beautiful headband

from Fern and Flora.
saw this nightstand at Ikea in Dallas this Spring.


Really loved it's shape and dark gray color.



I featured another wreath from Knock Knocking a few weeks ago

but I cannot help but be drawn to this etsy shop.

Isn't this wreath darling?


I kind of love gray with yellow, or cream, or black, aqua or pink...

Is there are color or color combination that you have been drawn to lately?

hope you have a lovely day.

{HANDMADE}

my note card packages on display at
Talulah Jones, a favorite Denver shop.

I loved the display! I wish this wooden piece belonged to me.

I am sure on the lookout for something similar now.

{Love the way it shows off each design}
I adore some of the ribbon that is wrapping up my note cards.

I have been saving some of those thicker patterned ribbons for the perfect design.

{ a banner in the window says "handmade"}

this is in the window of Talulah Jones,

where they often host events featuring local companies that produce handmade products.

Isn't it a wonderful thing to shop and make handmade items?
I was pleased to be picked as one of the handmade artists for this show.

I would love some carnival circus letters with my initials.

Aren't the T and the J hanging on the back wall fabulous?
Have a great week!
