Spring is Coming

Perhaps I would remember to water my plants if I had this adorable water faucet. Usually they just wither and die. Then I get a lecture about how I kill everything and we are never buying another plant again, ever. Oh pretty faucet, save me from the barren yard!

Let's Have a Party

First, we need this fabulous tea kettle from Michael Graves. Look at that adorable spout!

Next, we need some super cute teabag caddies to hold our used teabags. I really like these little birds from Stash Tea.

Now all that's left are some snacks and the perfect tea. For the snacks, you really should invest in this adorable cookie cutter from Copper Gifts. You can make cookies, and you can also make little bird shaped sandwiches. (recipe: spread some chicken salad between two slices of bread, cut and serve!)

So, pull out the kettle and get that water boiling. If you like black teas, my favorite is Lavender Earl Grey from Revolution. If you like green teas, you better ask my cousin, 'cause she's the expert in that field.

Just a spoonful of sugar...

You know what works even better than sugar? Judith Leiber's gorgeous pill case! I don't think I would ever forget to take my medicine if I could keep it in a designer case like this. Available from Neiman Marcus for a mere $600. (maybe I better keep dreaming)

Gotta Love Etsy

It's my two year Etsy Birthday!!

I tried really hard and finally managed to snag a treasury yesterday. I haven't had one in about a year! You can take a look, I called it "Gloriously Gauche."

European Vacation

Here's a little peak at some of the fun stuff I got on our trip.

embroidery 101

Ok, so this doll absolutely does not fit into my bird theme, but it is so freaking adorable that I had to blog about it anyways. Can you believe it's entirely hand embroidered? I just started embroidering last night (I wanted to keep my hands busy while watching hours and hours of Gossip Girl with Kevin!!) The doll is just beautiful, isn't she? I love all the facial details, especially the little cheeks. Whew, I can attest that this must be a lot of work. It took me two whole episodes just to spell out my name.

Kevin and I spent the weekend cleaning out our basement. My studio is down there, but the washer/dryer and all his "man tools" were really starting to squeeze me out. So, yesterday we moved out a ton of stuff, and today we are organizing like crazy. My goal is to get my sewing machine and iron-rite down there. I think this pincushion will go perfectly in my newly clean space!
