I am always amazed at the amount of talent on Etsy! So many incredible artists and ideas! Today's post is dedicated to a few of my favorite items. Should I ever create an Etsy wishlist- that should totally be a sight feature. I would include these items post haste! At wove I spied this incredible willow playhouse that I would have lived in as a kid. Who am I kidding, I would live in it now. I would want it exactly where it is in the pic. What with the mists of Avalon blowing the flags and all. Meaning that I would have to negotiate a land rental agreement with the owner. Which opens up questions regarding whether they will let me hold Medieval reenactments there. So, it may just be easier to swoon from afar.

Maybe I will just see if I can squeeze into this spectacular metal dollhouse from fluffyflowersvintage. How awesome would this be to have on display. Ohh for another girl in the house so I have an excuse for a dollhouse. Do I need an excuse? Hmmm

And lastly some art from Morrisetsy to decorate my dream castle or dollhouse. I am entranced by the colors and , well, everything about this piece. I may need to base the rest of my life on it. Peruse my shop favorites and see if you can find your next life altering piece of vintage or art.

Dear Blog,

It has been dog's years since I have blogged you with all of the daily drama that are the goings-on in my head. I am sorry for not being a more attentive blogger! I have been busy crafting, raising kids, getting tattooed and holding it all together. You'll have to forgive me. Here are some pics of what I did with my month. You can give me the silent treatment for a week if it makes you feel better Blog, I won't blame you :) The following is a thoroughly uninspiring bit of page filler- still trying to get back into the hang of things...

The stars on my left foot were done years ago and sadly(because it hurts like a MOFO) they need to be redone. I had been wanting my boy's initials for some time. The old tax return helped make that a dream come true!

I have been in a haze of crafting Etsy requests lately so, I have been busy. I love that I am busy but, I sometimes struggle to keep balanced with my kids and house-stuff. I am happy to do anything that keeps me home with my boys. I love being able to take my oldest to school everyday and I love the time I get with the baby. Finances being what they are, unless I get a major order or am featured in O magazine (Ha!) I will be throwing newspapers in the wee hours to make sure I can stay home. Then I get to figure out how to not be a Zombie- if it's not one thing it's another. Oh well. I am trying to get enthused and inspired to create more items and give you all something to give a crap about in this here blog. I was completely enthralled by this blog- ahhh to have the time and energy to do these!

Note to self: see if there are any foot fetish sites that like large, tattooed feet- CHAching!
