My friend K always called wee babes chickenheads. Look at this little chickenhead. So cute, huh? Like honestly. How friggin' cute is this outfit and kid??? So cute - I am posting her here. She is from Too Sweets. The entire website is a blog full of squish-to-death cuteness. I had to stop looking at it. Too Sweets is on Craftsy so go check out her stuff there - you can BUY the pattern to this sweet shirt. I wish I had one like that.  Seems like everywhere I look I see adorable babes - so thought it was high time I did a kiddie related post. Spotted on Design*Sponge Cubby + Storage + Fun Wheely Play Thing For Chicks = The Best. Spotted on Klikk When my sister was under the age of 6 she often sported a cat mask at home So cute. This image is from Another Day Up - but it is by ...

Don’t Mind If I Do: Herman Miller Office Chairs Designed By Eames

This story involves a 'holy shit' moment. You all know that feeling when you - not a friend of a friend - but you - find something so amazing second-hand that you feel like falling over? I didn't believe myself ("No...It can't be") - Google search said item quickly to make sure I'm not crazy. Pay for said vintage items as quickly as possible and bolt out of the place before you get robbed by other patrons for items. This is what I found. Two Ray and Charles Eames designed Herman Miller office chairs. Scoop. Fiberglass. Covered in a sweet wool-ish type material. From a hospital. Sticker says they were made in 1971. Both are in good condition - great condition. With the exception of chair #2, the fabric has a small dark stain on the front. Boo. But I love them. Fits in perfectly with my bedroom colour scheme right now. I love ...

The Artful Badger: Pick-pocketing Sweet Art (DIY Round’Em Up)

Wow, that title is way over complicated. This is how it unrolled before my eyes. Me: "Hey self, what should I call a DIY round up post about art?" ME: "Well don't be boring, don't just say "DIY Art Roundup" Me: "Ummmm..What about the artful badger?" ME: "Huh? Where is that from. Better google it." Me: "Ohhh ya... It's the character from Oliver Twist - the pickpocket. " ME: "Ya use all of that. Oh wait. Write something about it being a DIY post too." UGG! Story of my life, talking too much, over complicating something incredibly simple. Like a blog post, about sweet do it yourself art. Okay you got the story, now GO! *I have to preface this by saying I have zero artistic ability, I assume others don't either. So the 'art' will be on the easy side and just a pinch of creativity* I really love this first idea.... As I love animals. If you ...

I Should Live In The Woods Somewhere

Someday I will become a recluse. I will just pack up and head into the bush. Into a lovely, quaint cottage hopefully. Here is the sweet cottage I hide in all weekend with some of my old BFF's. It rained. A lot. But it was wonderful and made my heart feel like it was going to explode. The lake we stayed on. This was one of the breaks in the incessant rain fall. Proof of the sweet rain. Amazing cottage art. Is it art? Ya it's art. If there is any question about a cottage being 'cottagey' enough, just put a fake canoe/boat bookcase in it. Believe it or not, I utilized the blue slide. I'll let your imagination sort that one out (average temperature last weekend was somewhere between 13 and 17 degrees!) I was gifted this beaut I am jealous of myself. I wish I could go back.
