A rainbow connection...

I'm totally over Winter.
It's officially time for me to put my crazy on if I need to contend with any more snow, snow days, ice or slush.

I'm going to pretend Spring is tomorrow, the flowers are blooming and all is right in the world.
OK. I'm a bit dismal, gloomy, blue.

My kids have the stomach bug...puke-ola turning my lovely house into a stink zone.
O.V.E.R. it!
I need a break.

Oh joy! This delights me in every way.

Have ya ever seen a cuter pin cushion?

And who doesn't need cupcake band-aids?

Ummmm, can you say kaaaaaaaa-uuute!
OMG. Luv!
I've just discovered this shop and so glad I did!

I love the organic feel of these tags.
I'd be selfish and use them for tagging goodies around the house instead of using them on gifts...sorry, that's just how I roll :)

Hedgehogs + this shop = Happiness

It's Vintage baby!
Love this shop.
Oooodles of neat things to do whatever with.
I've got some of their treats on the way to me and I can't wait to get crafty!

For the lego lovers out darn cute is this?

And finally.
Another one of my MOST favorite artists.
She's just too cute and her work is fun, happy and makes me forget it's Winter.

Sweet Cora Paige...

Yeah, this isn't my usual kind of post but hey, what better time to mix things up a bit than for a good cause?
Run on much?
English grammar isn't my strong point...I digress (have you guessed yet that I'm good at that?)
On with it!
You may already know about Cora Paige or you may not.
I first 'met' her a few months back after reading one of my favorite blogs.
Skip to just a couple weeks ago and I learn she is sick...very sick.
Sweet Cora passed away this past heart is still breaking.
To read more of her story visit:
To learn more about Cora's Playground visit:
Many of us Etsian's have banded together to help raise money for her family to build Cora's Playground at Grace Community Church in Newton, Kansas.

Denise over at this cute little blog was able to make a Treasury of Cora goodies and look...I'm on the top right!
In order to make it to the front page which is a HUGE deal we need a ton o' comments left on
this thread!!!
Please just take a minute and pop by...pretty please?
I'll be back with my usual goodies soon!

An itty bitty list...

of goodies to warm my heart.
I could spend all day every day feeding my eyes with all the pleasures that Etsy has to offer.
It's better than ice cream, better than a clean house (rates high on my must haves but am willing to live without...hey, gotta sacrifice), better than my favorite pair of perfectly fitting designer jeans!
I could literally sit on my duff all day and just dream of owning e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g I see!

These caught my eye...I think the U for underwear had me at hello :) My intention is owning one of every print in this shop and stringing them throughout my house...they make me really happy.

OK. OK. You probably 'get' that I love me some owls.
Well, what's not to love? This lil' guy is a peg board!
With a cutie like this to hang your coats on what kid wouldn't comply?

How darling are these?
They'll look great in my kitchen.
This shop has quite a neat selection of things, you must stop by!
I just think this is down right awesome.
This artist has amazing taste!

I love, love, LOVE this shop!
This pic is on it's way to me as I type...can't wait to get it!

My sister is 'honeybee' so MUST own this lovely necklace.
Happy Birthday girl!
I am loving this shop to pieces!

I will try and be more regular with my posting.
I've been a bit busy with my own shop (thank you very much!) and trying to keep my girls happy during these oh so cold months.
Have a great day!
