Etsy favorite Wed: Fall is in the air.

It feels like it went from summer to fall overnight here in MN! While I’m not fond of the cooler weather I do love that it gives me a reason to wear my knit hats and scarves. I’ve got enough to outfit the Brady Bunch but I’m sure I’ll be making a few more this year as I do every year! The trees are still pretty green but I’m looking >> Continue reading

Etsy Wednesday: And the suggestions are…

Does the Suggested Shops feature really find items that I would like? The verdict would be a happy why yes it does! I gave it a go and found some great items. These are just a few and it just so happened that after I hearted 4 of them I noticed the blue and pink trend. Anyone want to take a stab at what my favorite colors are?!

Etsy Favorite Wednesday: Deviate

I used to work at the gift wrap department in Marshal Fields (which became Dayton’s and then Macy’s) and saw many wedding registry gifts come through. In case you were interested or ever find you’re on a trivia show- the most popular items are towels and silverware. Not too exciting right? Being Asian it’s typical to give cash so I’ve rarely had the opportunity to shop a registry but if >> Continue reading

Etsy favorite Wednesday: Somewhere over the rainbow

We had a rainy July 4th morning and every once in awhile we get to see the most gorgeous rainbows (like this one). There wasn’t one for us to see that morning so I’ve made my own! Here is my rainbow…. (Click the image to go to the treasury) I may have to change the theme to treasuries because now that I’ve made one I see what the love is >> Continue reading

Etsy favorite Wednesday: All-England Club

Tennis brings back a lot of great memories for me. It was a real bonding sport for my family. I still remember going out to the courts as a kid watching my mom and dad play with their wooden rackets. It wasn’t until middle school that my dad put a racket in my (and my sisters) hands. Thinking about it now I bet it was because we were bored out >> Continue reading

Etsy favorite Wednesday: for the men

This weeks edition is for the men! (I know it’s a day late… ) Initially I began looking for items for my hubby but as I added items I realized it was more akin to my TV crush Neal Caffrey then my husband. I admit it,  I got a thing for White Collars Neal Caffrey and my husband doesn’t mind. Matt Bomer himself is easy on the eyes but I >> Continue reading

Etsy favorites Wednesday: budding artist

Back in February my daughter discovered the world of coloring. She loves to scribble and if we’re not keeping a close eye on her she’ll move from the paper to the table and then the chair. She’s even gotten a few marks on her clothing and face! Luckily she hasn’t gotten to the walls yet. (Knock on wood!) That said, this weeks favorites is for my Little Peanut who loves >> Continue reading
