favorite sellers

I love etsy's "save favorite seller" feature, because once you start saving sellers as favorites, etsy creates an rss feed of all items listed by your favorite sellers, and you can save it on the feed-reader of your choice. Here's what popped up in my bloglines lately (I appear to be on a neutrals kick):

crochet collar at EmmaDear

milkglass tree plates at JWhite2

Milkglass compotes (I have that bottom one and love it!) at JWhite2

Pride and Prejudice ornaments by Brookish

Milkglass bowl by JWhite2

Stunning candlesticks by JWhite2

Vintage Typewriter - JWhite2

Pride and Prejudice mug by Bookish

Floral Trim by EmmaDear

So, I guess the moral of the story is that if you are me, sellers like JWhite2 could easily take all my money, if I had any. Hopefully I can use that inspiration on the rare occasions when I get to go thrifting instead.

Sewing for boys

This is something I've never managed to catch the vision of. Something about the way boys wear their clothes just makes me not want to expend my effort. To a boy, clothing is a tool and to a girl, clothing is adornment. This is a gross generalization, but usually accurate. Luckily, there are people who manage to sew for boys, in case I ever decide to dig my heels in. Check out this celebrate the boy series on MADE.

Little Travelers

I've become a bit enamored of the Little Traveler's series. Their available dvd's have jumped to the top of my netflix queue, and I may or may not have spent a morning pouring over their kids blog and mom blog. (Especially loving the 52 meals from 52 countries challenge)

I just can't decide if traveling with kids sounds like a dream or a nightmare.

Flowering Branches

Is Winter dragging on a little too long in your corner? It is in mine. My latest coping mechanism is forcing flowering branches, via this tutorial from my friend Jennie at Straight from the Garden. It is saving the day!

Unique Vintage

I'm maybe kind of FREAKING OUT over the vintage-inspired bathing suits over at Unique Vintage. Such as:

This tablescape has me totally re-thinking mercury glass. I used to have it pigeonholed for Christmas only. The possibilities!
