Pretend It's Monday, Will You?

Just for my sake, so I won't feel bad about not giving you your YUMMIES Monday?? Oh you will? Thank you!!! You ARE so sweet. :)
Well it's been a crazy couple days. My 9-month-old is officially mobile and getting into EVERYTHING! He is teething, too, and kept me awake until 2 a.m. night before last. My 6-year-old is back to school, which is a mixed bag, since that means one less little person asking for things, but now the 3-year-old now has to learn to entertain herself again. We are all just a little out of sorts, I think! But enough about me...it's time for YUMMIES!!!!

I've been scouting out some lovelies to show you and I'm really excited about them. I just KNOW you will love them, too! And not to worry, though all these treats will be sugary-sweet, they will be totally fat- and calorie-free! So you'll still be able to fit into this little number....




So hop into my little sidecar, hang on, and away we go in my little cyber-car!




YUMMY THING ONE: "Flirt" Apron by Cece Marie

Isn't it scrumptious??? I think so, too. And this is just one of many! I'm just loving all Cece Marie's sweet designs, but this is definitely my FAV! You might even get me to cook something if I had one of these to wear in the kitchen. :) And really now...would a girl really NEED to cook if she was wearing THIS??? Her big hunky husband might just order take-out if he came home to her in this little yummy! ;)
YUMMY THING TWO: Fairy Gate by Blissful Elements
Oh I just love everything sweet Kris makes! Just take a gander at her delectable etsy shoppe! But what a treat this little lovely is!

And a sweet little close-up!YUMMY THING THREE: Lollipop Shoppe Bracelet by Trendy Tatters

Now before you get all excited, I think this is sized for a LITTLE girl! ;) Oh isn't it just YUMMY? Makes a person want to make up a whole outfit based on this sweet bauble! What delicious jewelry lives in this little etsy shop...I just love so many I can't even pick my favorite! I really love her Cinderella bracelet, the birthday one AND her Halloween bracelet. Adorable!

Oh I just adore vintage paper dolls but these really take the cake. So beautiful! I think I'm in love!




YUMMY THING FIVE: Too Many Things to Pink One by Little Melfred Studios!


I'm just in awe of all the pretties "Miss Melfie" creates. She is new to Glitter & Grunge but not new at all to creating beautiful treasures out of vintage lovelies! I can't even pick just one of her creations to show you. I have to show you a few...I can't have you missing even one!!
First off... her Sweet Words Here collage that is for sale in her etsy shoppe...
And look at this DEAR little nestling on Glitter & Grunge...

And I am in LOVE with her sweet little nesting sister, also on Glitter & Grunge...

Well Girls...I think that's it for today! Here we are at your door...it's been such a TREAT having you on my little window-shopping-spree this morning. Next week I have some Yummies with a special "theme" for you...Halloween! I'm working on some Halloween treats for you myself but I have been finding some ever-so-sweet treats that my friends are making, as well. And if you find yourself in the "vintage bisque doll" area of eBay, look around for me...I'm bound to be there somewhere, strolling about and peeking at the dollies!

Hope your day is lovely. Let's look for just one or two "moments" today that we can purposely store away in our treasure chests of memories so that when we're sitting in our little rockers someday, we can pull them out and hold them in our wrinkly old hands....
