ABC Gingerbread men!

what would the holidays be without gingerbread men??? and what would i do without these cute cookie cutters from one of my favorite stores Fred & Friends!


sand story.

i saw this video a while ago, and just had to put it up on the blog. it is quite amazing...and wonderful to watch. here is a little bit about it:

Kseniya Simonova is a 24 years old Ukranian artist. she uses a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and "sand painting" skills to interpret Germany's invasion and occupation of Ukraine during WWII. she won Ukraine's Got Talent 2009, watched by over 13 million people.


apple pies.

i love apple pie. and if i had these, i'd make them all the time.

Apple & Pumpkin Pocket Pie Molds by Williams-Sonoma. you can get them here.



little packages of help. have a headache or a cut? get one of these. aren't they cute! inside you will find a remedy to fix your aliment. best of all, the packaging is all natural and biodegradable. 2 things that are super important to me.

made by the company help. you can get these little cuties here.



have you tried and failed to write notes to yourself on eggs and toast? now you can.

post-it toast-it notes. get them here.

p.s. i don't know why i have a fetish about food shaped post-it notes. guess i'm just always hungry.


because i said so.

i am obsessed with art prints. there are so many i want, and so little wall space in my little happy home. i have been eyeing this one for the boys room. the little one is always having nightmares about monsters. this should do the trick. *wink*

you can get it here. signed and numbered by the artist John W. Golden.


for your burger.

if i could cook, i would want to put my hamburgers in these. especially at a bbq.

real vintage Big Boy burger wraps. you can get them here.


cookie feet.

too bad i don't have a sweet baby for these adorable booties. soo cute you could eat them!

fortune cookie booties that you can personalize with a message of your choice. handmade by etsy seller sushibooties who also makes sushi style ones too. you can get them here. guess what? they have adult slippers too.


missing my iphone.

i no longer have an iphone, it got broken by my sweet husband who was trying to be so nice and fix it's screen. boo hoo! i forgot how much i missed it until i saw this cutie. an iphone stencil. don't know what exactly i'd do with it, but at the same time i like it.

you can get one here.


shoe love.

these shoes are just what i'm looking for. easy to run around in. the perfect tennis shoe alternative. and there is something else that makes them super cool.

what's so cool about them? they are eco-friendly. made from recycled rice bags woven together and the soles are recycled PU and cork. each pair is unique, like art!

you can get them here. they are from Keen. all of their shoe soles are made with keen.cork. renewable, natural and more sustainable. this cushioning is specially molded for outdoor adventures to reduce impact on feet – and the environment. gotta love that.


"colour pencils"

i love this environmentalist art exhibit "Colour Pencils" of Jonna Pohjalainen. an artist from Oulunkylä, Helsinki Finland.

in her work "Colour Pencils" she wanted to show how the art connected with its surroundings and how it changed during different weather conditions and times of the day. she created this piece in 2006.

without sun there are no colours and life!



this weekend i went to the renegade craft fair.  since i took my boys, i didn't get to enjoy it as much as i would have liked. i did however find a couple of treasures and some cool vendors. 

i got this cool rock poster. 

it may seem simple, but it is styled after a this poster issued upon the outbreak of World War 2.

the original poster was issued as a means of allaying public fear. the poster was held in reserve for use only in times of extreme crisis. although thousands were produced, only a handful ever saw the light of day.

i have been planning on getting this poster for some time now to put in my entryway. i love it's vintage charm. but i fell in love with the one this weekend because it will go perfect with the little rock star photo shoot with my boys.  

you can get the poster here.
