Monday YUMMIES for YOU!

Good Morning, my Fabulous Friends! It's Monday and, as usual, I'm inviting you to enjoy some YUMMIES with me that I've been making eyes at ( in!) this week. Oh you're going to love them! We're starting a bit late so I've got my little cyber-mobile running out by the curb. Let's go!

Well I just LOVE that sweet little pink number you have on, Darlin'! As you can see, I woke up late and didn't have time to put in my contacts or my bulge-restraining undergarments...oops! And gosh...I must've gotten dressed in the dark because WOW this brown outfit isn't doing a THING for me, is it? Oh one will see me but you and you don't care, right? O.k. here we go. But what's this? We have a band of admirers! They must have seen my cuter-than-cute red thing around my neck and couldn't help themselves. But wait...they're yelling your name! Hang on, Sweets...and away we go, off into cyber space. Goodbye, boys...we have yummies to see!

YUMMY THING ONE: "Charlotte" by Jenny Heid and Aaron Nieradka of

Everyday is a Holiday

Let me introduce you to my new obsession: a new line of THE SWEETEST paintings by Jenny Heid and Aaron Nieradka of Everyday is a Holiday. I know you know I like pink, vintage and all things DOLL. But this is just a whole new level of yummy! My recent obsession and the subject of WAY too many hours of eBay searches is "vintage bisque dolls." The tinier the better. I love them all but I prefer those that are under 6 inches, have painted-on hair and rosy cheeks. So when I saw this painting I just about DIED. Actually I just about hit, "buy it now." But Jenny says there will be more of these lovelies and that "Charlotte" (this darling) is just the beginning. What if I love the next one MORE? So I am saving up for one or more of these. They BELONG on my new studio wall. Yes, they do.


So this is in a size 3/6 month and the only person who wears that size around here is a boy, so you don't have to worry about me snatching this outrageously beautiful set up anytime soon. But if it came any bigger...well that's another story! I can tell you without even asking Miss Sunda Rose that this incredible coat and hat is made from a vintage pink rose Wilendur fabric that I ADORE and would wrap myself and my entire house in if I could. The definition of YUMMY in the dictionary says something about this little set, I'm sure!


"Lovely" crown by Acorn Mama
So after Emily's recent birthday I've got crowns on the brain. I'm not making any but I'm sure oggling them. Look at this "lovely" one! How sweet would that be for a lovely little birthday girl??

YUMMY THING FOUR: "Dream" Garland by The Small Treasures

I found this on flickr and went hunting around to find who made it and where I could get one. I found The Small Treasures, a sweet-as-can-be little etsy shoppe by the sweetest gal who lives in Germany. Her blog is fun, too! So I convo'd her and she is making me a garland like this that will say, "DOLL" (remember that's the name of my line of clothing for girls?)! I'm so excited! This garland is sold, but I have a feeling she might make some custom signs for you if you ask REAL NICE. ;)

YUMMY THING FIVE: A Fairy Door by Once Upon a Time Design

Besides having dolls and crowns on the brain, I have a major fixation on fairies right now. My girls LOVE all things fairies. They play fairies in the yard with the huge mulberry tree leaves as their "wings," their room theme is fairy princesses and I have a feeling that you're going to find two little fairies trick-or-treating down our new street in a couple months! But besides that, I have been doing some major creating, much of which involves fairies. That's a whole other blog, though...but I can't wait to show you what I'm making!
In the meantime, here is the cutest thing: A Fairy Door. My girls have not seen this but I can guarantee that there is going to be a Fairy Door in our new house. I just LOVE this. This particular door is sold but you can find many more in the Once Upon a Time Design shoppe on etsy!
Well that's all for today! Here we are, back at your house! And those men on bicycles seem to have disappeared.
Let's do this again...soon!

Elaine Thomas said...

Wow! quite scrumptious!! I love the painting by Jenny.

Heather ~ Pretty Petals said...

Wow! Everything is so beautiful!! I love Jenny's new painting..adorable! Also love the banner and DOll will be so cute!!

Gorgeous Gorgeous!!

by the way you asked about ounces for the glitter so I thought i would just explain to you here so you know! A half of a pound of glitter is 8 ounces... so the jars I am planning to sell are 2 oz. They look to be about the size of a small spice jar. You will find that if you bought 2 oz of regular glitter and 2 oz of glass glitter the glass would be less because it is heavier (maybe about the weight of sugar)..if you know what I mean?? But a little goes such a long way and unless you are planning to glitter everything a small jar truly does last awhile. As far as the mica flakes is super light so 1 oz of that is alot! My bags are a 4"x6" size but only weigh 1 oz. Hope I helped you out and didn't confuse you!
