we've moved!

Wondering where we've been? Well that's certainly not good!

Please click on over to our new blog, it's beautiful here, for a continued supply of pretty little things and daily inspirations. We're still getting ourselves organized over there but we'd love (more than anything!) for you to join us...

Wishing you a fun-filled cinco de mayo from zuzu girl... and sharing some of our favorite Mexican inspired Etsy finds!

random tuesday.

a few things I kinda sorta loathe today...

1. falling asleep while trying to comfort a child to sleep... only to wake in a fog with a million things to do before I can actually go back to sleep myself.
2. going to a favorite restaurant and feeling the need to order something different off the menu... only to realize why you always order the same damn thing.
3. heartburn. especially when caused by #2.
4. foul mouthed young children. I mean way too young. and, kinda sorta, their parents.
5. coffee shop patrons that bring long lists. I lack patience. especially before my fix.

a few things that kinda make up for all the other things above...

1. a perfectly picked and ripened strawberry. just one will do it.
2. the blatant honesty of an innocent child. can't beat it. even if you don't want to hear what they have to say!
3. windows down. sun shining. and a sweet tuned cranked way up.
4. when someone holds the door open for you at a coffee shop, knowing damn well it means you will now be ahead of them in line.
5. snorty puppy stretches.

Oh, and this wooden spoon theater is super cute tonight...

Absolutely loving this handbag.
Anyone know who makes it or how unaffordable it is so I can dream in more detail?

modern handmade child

The summer issue of Modern Handmade Child went live today!
And, while I do have a vested interest in the magazine as one of the contributing editors, I do have to say that it's one of the best issues yet. Fun fashion, stylish decor, yummy recipes and plenty of do-it-yourself ideas for the long summer ahead. And, yes, it's all handmade.
