We all know how I love the cherries. I found this find after I had posted the blog and decided to add it because it is so cute and two it cherries. I found this while shopping for a dress at Jaycene.etsy.com

This is simple and sweet. It would go with any outfit. I found this and many other wonderful things at WhimseysVintage.etsy.com

This little purse is so cute. Perfect for a night out when all you need is your keys, wallet, and lipstick. TOO CUTE
I found this in oldgrowth's etsy shop

Green with envy. Yes your friend will be if you have this purse. Just kidding. I just love play on words. But it is super cute. It looks very roomy. I found this little wonder in hautecountryvintage's etsy shop

This purse makes me want to go out an buy a formal gown just to have an excuse to buy this pretty little purse. I love the gold and the shiny gem. I found this in
rabbity's etsy store

I want, I want, I want. This is such a classic look and would go with any wardrobe. This shop has such cute stuff I had to choose both handbags to feature today because I just couldn't choose. I found this and the next one in modhuman's etsy shop

This one has stood the test of time. I see this style even today in stores. This would be a perfect everyday bag. I found this in modhuman's etsy store.

Oh my goodness I can picture this on my arm. I love this style. I found this beauty at

This is a darling purse. I like that is very veritable, it can be dressed up or down. Very cute. I found this in emmylucy's etsy shop.

I have been watching the season two of madmen and it has made me realize that I should of been born a long time ago. The style of the late 50's and early 60's suits me. I just love vintage handbags. I have been collecting them since I was 15. I have a decent collection but I always want more. What collection is ever complete right. These bags are all very cute and very affordable. I had such a hard time not buying all of them. Soon I will have to add some of these wonders to my collection because they are sooooo cute.

Tea Time

Oh my goodness this little tea set is sweet. This set is totally customisable and you can order it to you liking. I love it when sellers let you know this. I think my little girls would love tea time if they had this set. Of coarse the little one has some growing to do before tea time. I found this in KymminNC's etsy store.

These are so cute and could even be used to make invites for your tea party or to scrapbook your tea parties. This would be an excellent combo with the party favors below. I found these in corrina318 etsy store.

I think this is soo cute and creative. It makes me want to have a tea themed party just to pass these out as favors. This creation was done by favormakers.etsy.com and they have the cutest favors plus you can choose the color combos. I Love it when I can make everything match.

I think this is just wonderful. How cute a little tea pot magazine holder. I can picture it is a kitchen holding cook books or tucked into a little nook holding magazines. Ether way it is super cute. I found this in paperdollwoodshop's etsy shop. They also make this in other colors to match your decor.

This darling little dress reminds me of my mothers china set. I love anything with a white and blue contrast. The tea pot adds just the right touch to this little darling dress. I found this at allthenumbers's etsy store

This little toy set is soooo cute. At first I thought it was already made but this is actually a pattern for you to make it your self. I think this would make a wonderful project to do with your little one. How much fun would that be I found this in
LittleCrickets's etsy shop.

Today was such a nasty day. The weather was so rainy and the sky so grey. It was just one of those days where it is hard to motivate and you just seem to be so sleepy. I usually love this weather and welcome the rain. I guess it just hit me differently today. I thought why not sit back and have some warm tea. It has been so long since I have had a cup of tea. I find it so relaxing and plus the caffeine gives you a boost. As I was sipping on my hot creamy tea I thought how nice it would be if I had a pretty little tea cup. So of coarse I got on the computer and began to hunt.. you know just to price something for a future purchase and then it came to me. I should do today as a tea day. You know they say ( i am not sure who they are) you need to take time to smell the flowers I think every now and then I need to take time to enjoy the tea. I don't know why but it always seems I can find a quite place to enjoy my tea. Like the kids just know and seem to find something to do. It is quite nice.

This etsy seller is very talented, and it was so hard to pick just one of the photos to feature. Here pictures are just breathtaking. I found this at shannonpix.etsy.com
Lately I have been seeing the dandelion trend everywhere from home decor to clothing. This little bag is sooo trendy and cute. I found this in Shakuyaku's etsy store.

Like I said before you are really seeing dandelion everywhere. Is there an easier way to decorate than vinyl rubbings. I think not. It is almost like applying a giant sticker to you wall. Easy on easy off. I love anything easy. I found this in ArtConductor's etsy shop

These aren't really dandelions but they seemed to remind me of them any how. I love the wispyness of theses pins. If wispyness is even a word, I guess it is now. These wonders were found at Doomfoxetsy.com

I wouldn't be me if I didn't stumble on to something that was cherry. This cherry blossom tree is so timeless and pretty. I can't think of one thing that it wouldn't go with. It is going to be on my wish list for sure. I found this beauty and much more in
WireGirl's etsy shop.

This is what started the whole dandelion theme today. I stumbled upon this artist and spent a good 30 min. in here store. There was just such wonderful art in there. You can find this and many more at papermoth.etsy.com

I have been more drawn to dandelions lately. They take me back to being a kid. When I would run though my yard blowing wishes as my dad begged me to stop telling me they were weeds. Even as an adult I can't resist to see if I can blow all the seeds off with one blow. I don't care that more are going to sprout like my parents did that only means there will be more fun later. I love that my three year old gets so excited when she finds one. It is like she unearthed some treasure chest. Mommy mommy look I found a wishy. Maybe that is why I have a new found love for these little weeds.

Glittery...Girlie...and of corse Cherries

I have an eye for things that glitter and I love anything stars. And this fits the bill.I found this is FashionCandy's etsy shop.

My little girl loves everything Little Mermaid and when I saw this my mind went straight to her and who she likes to call lala. This is such a darling little mermaid dress that I found at AngelsBoutique's etsy shop

This would be cute in any girlie's room with the bright glittery colors. Heck it would be cute in my office too. Found this at BoutikiHut's etsy shop.

Like I said before I have an eye for glittery stars and this one is soo cute. First off I love star fish and often incorporate them into my work because of the starfish story. If you haven't heard it before you can check out the shortened version here http://www.cedu.niu.edu/~fulmer/starfish.htm oh yeah by the way I found this in
theglittergirlz etsy shop and they have tons of treasures,

Now isn't this just sweet as can be. This would be so perfect for dance class, dress up or a special event. I think this very versatile bow would even go great with jeans. It has now been added to my wish list. This little treasure was found in Kmonticue.etsy.com 5c shop.

Oh y'all know how I love the cherries. This is a super fun card is made by one of my absolute favorite etsy sellers. She also sales scrap booking supplies on line at http://gensscrapbookkitchen.com/ and all of her handmade items can also be found
gspeegle on etsy.com

As soon as I saw this it became a must have of mine. I can see this in a little girls hair for sure but that is not why I want it. I think it would be super cute in my grown up hair as well. I found this beauty at andreacreates on etsy.com

Yes cherries again. who would of thought it. Well with all the pressure these days to be green why not do it in style and can get any more style in a sandwich bag than this. I think not... This wonder was found in teddeco's etsy store

I didn't have a direct theme today but was feeling quite girlie. Today should of been a dress day however I am in jeans. The weather is nice and I am dying to get out this weekend and soak some of it up. I will do the whole dress thing this weekend and perhaps I will even take the family out for a bright picnic. That is one of their favorite things to do and I love it because it is pretty much free and we get out side. I encourage all of you to get out and enjoy the beauty that the world has to offer maybe take a walk or a picnic. Just enjoy it while it's here.
Also you can now just click on the photos and it will direct you to the items. Yes I am figuring out technology. It's about time right.

Oh alice and your wonderland

This is a darling little costume and what an idea to have sibling as Alice and the white rabbit. I have two little girls so I always have my eye on kids stuff and this is super cute. I found this at BlueBottleDesigns.etsy.com

I really love the look of these prints. They are classic and take me back...somewhere. That magical place that as adult we seem to forget about. These pictures help me to remember and I found them at Timeflight.etsy.com

This is a nice ring and I love the picture on it. I love tea parties and who doesn't love the un-birhtday theme song of the mad hatters tea party. FatallyFeminine

After that wonderful ring about the mad hatter tea party. I thought I should find something mad hatter and then I came across this print. I think this 5X7 print is so cool and would be a great addition to any Wonderland collection. I love the take that this artist did on the Mad hatter. This is made by moonlightwhisper

These little tags are great and would be great to add to a scrapbook or a handmade card. I love the red and black contrast and the timeless images. I found these made by papervictory

This little water drop pendant is quite something. I love the vintage image of Alice holding the water bottle. It is almost like she drank the potion and shrunk and got stuck in this water drop. I found this little wonder made by bethtastic

Today I have been feeling a little lost and that reminded me about the wonderful tale of Alice and Wonderland. How Alice got lost and was trying to find her way out or around Wonderland. Like Alice I look for excitement and sometimes and it gets me into trouble and then all I want to do is find my way back. Today as I did my search to find treasures to feature on today's post I found out that they are coming out with a Alice and wonderland movie. I am sure everyone but me know this (I am usually the last to know these things) but I am super excited and disappointed at the same time. I am excited because I love the story and as a little girl I loved watching over and over the cartoon movie. I am disappointed also because I love the story and so many times Hollywood has messed with a good thing and messed it up. Do you remember Charlie and the chocolate factory. Lets keep our fingers crossed and wait.

Project Vacation----The wet lands

I am having the most wonderful time on vacation. Right now I am in Louisiana visiting my older brother. He took us sight seeing to the swamp and I never picture the swamps as being pretty. I have always thought of them as being smelly, wet, infested with bugs and all around not a place I would want to be. Boy was I wrong. This has got to be be one of the prettiest places I have been. There wasn't a nasty smell and the scenery was absolutely breath taking. The Cyprus trees shoot up from the moss covered water. There are flowers I had never seen, even a book and the birds are of all different kinds. There are giant spiders that even I was kind of scared to photgraph because I thought they might jump on me. We were lucky enough to arrive around sunset and that was a breathtaking event. I hope everyone enjoys the pictures as much as I have enjoyed taking them. This experience has changed my opinion of the wet lands and Louisiana as whole. This state is truly beautiful and a place that should top the list of places to visit. We are here for one more day and I am going to try and take in as much of this state as I can.
