So, it’s the perfect time to snuggle up with a book or movie, a cuddly blanket, an animal or two, and maybe even finish up some Christmas shopping online.

Friday’s Favorites – Summer Lovin’

So, I don’t know about you, but we haven’t had much of a spring here in North Texas. We’ve had one big storm (which brought devastating tornadoes to towns around us – you can donate to the disaster relief through Red Cross here,) and a few days in the 70’s, but mostly we’ve gotten sunshine and highs in the upper 80’s and low 90’s. That’s the beginning of summer, if you ask me.

In celebration of our early summer, this Friday’s Favorites list is full of sunbeams and bohemian loveliness.

This beautiful leg chain is a natural evolution of this year’s body chain trend!

Sparkling Honeysuckle Soap

This sparkling honeysuckle scented soap by our friend Cassie at Clover Hollow is subtly glittery, and made from the finest ingredients.

30 DIY Ways To Make Your Backyard Awesome This Summer

Turn the back yard into a movie theater with lots of pillows, cushions, and fairy lights.

Vintage 1970's Handmade Yellow Gingham Empire Maxi Puffy Sleeve Dress

Tiny yellow gingham print, puff sleeves, dainty trim, and collar make our vintage empire maxi dress a spring and summer dream!

Nectarine and Mint - Sunstone Druzy and Aqua Green Chalcedony Charm Necklace in 14k Gold Fill (one of a kind)

This golden sunstone and chalcedony necklace by Bespangled Jewelry lets you bring the beach with you wherever you go this summer.

Yay for superheros and (almost) finishing projects!

Whew! This 3 week summer break has been a doozy so far. I’ve been sick (other than the chronic stuff) twice now, helped with a fundraiser for a friend, went to Comic Con with the hubby (in costume,) and have nearly finished one out of the two sets of painted letters I’m working on for a friend.

To illustrate, here are some pics:

 

 

I love that the superhero themed letters and the comic convention came to be around the same time! 😉

Friday’s Favorites – Old School Dress Up

I’ve seen some amazing vintage and vintage inspired super feminine spring outfits on Etsy lately! If I had the money, I’d buy them all, but, alas, I must “window shop.” Look at all the pretties!

Friday’s Favorites – Valentine Edition

Time to spread the Valentine love, and share some of our most recent favorites on Etsy:

Cassette Tape Papercut by squirrelandfox

 

Pink Elephants by maybesparrowsplace

 

1950s Fenton Glass Perfume Pitcher by crazydreamz

 

Vintage Silk Cocktail Dress by chiffonier

 (Of course, there’s plenty more romance where that came from! Just search EtsyXO or Valentine’s Day on etsy.com to find it.)
 
I have a love/hate relationship with the holiday (who doesn’t?) but I just have this image, combining all of the items above, of wearing that dress while pouring a yummy spritzer from the Fenton vase as the hubby opens his awesome papercut card and the cute little pachyderms look on from the background. Of course, we’re in a dreamy vintage kitchen, complete with sky blue fridge and diner-style breakfast table. And a million dollars and a pony, because, what the heck, it’s my fantasy and I can have what I want.
 
In reality, we’ll be taking our nerdy selves to the Sci-Fi Expo tomorrow to celebrate. Next best thing, don’t you think? Maybe I’ll rub elbows with Eliza Dushku.
