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 forward to seeing the beautiful yellow, reds and oranges that come with the changing weather.

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?!Links to these amazing items are below the image.
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 I were given the choice I think I would deviate and buy the happy couple something special and unique from Etsy of course!
OK… I’ll be honest, this treasury is totally all me and what I would love… wedding or not! (Psss… husband are you reading?!)Click the image to go to the treasury.
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 about!
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 of our skulls over summer break and he wanted to give us something to do!
That summer and every summer after that for the next 5-6 years we played. He rounded up friends and friends of friends and we played until the sun went down and we couldn’t see anymore. We also gathered around the TV during the big 4 tournaments and watched Sampras, Agassi, Courier, Seles and Graph duke it out for the championship.
As the Wimbledon finals approach this weekend I was inspired by the green grass and white attire, but this week instead of choosing my favorites I took the plunge and made my very own treasury. I hope you enjoy!(click the image to go to the treasury)
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 just love how he portrays Neal – charming, sexy and sophisticated and not to mention uber smart.
So Neal, these are for you. I imagine you have a gamer side hidden in there somewhere hence the Pac-Man napkin holder which you would probably use for mail because really, with all your riches you’re not going to get your own napkin.
Enjoy and tell me about your own TV crush!
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 coloring.(Links to the store are below the photo.)
Ooops! A day late but here none-the-less….
The weather has been kind to us this past week and my mind has been on summer. Of course what is summer with out some parties?! These would make great party accessories.Links to the shops are below the image.
