Rainy Nights

It’s one of those nights. You’re not in the best mood, and the internet (Etsy in my case) sucks you in. It’s also a rare night in Arizona…. it’s raining! It was windy and haboob-ish all day. Then came the down pour! What the heck Phoenix?

By the way if you don’t know what a haboob is…

They are pretty annoying. Any way…. as Etsy entranced me… thought I would post some favorite finds of the evening.

New Digs

So I feel awful that I haven’t been on in awhile! Wedding season has taken over!

I am happy to say I finally got moved into my adorable studio/guest house, and am so excited to show you all a few of my favorite details. It seems when I moved in, I had all my little details put together and in their spot before anything else. I will say I finally did buy some silverware! Progress. 🙂 My Place may be tiny, but I am determined to make it adorable.

Enjoy!

Happy Birthday to Us!

I can’t believe I started blogging, already 1 year ago… and so much has changed! Our blog is heading for a whole new start and I can’t wait to share it with you all!

I have been running around crazy lately with my busy schedule. But one thing that is coming up for me…I am moving! I am moving into a small guest house in Willo, the greatest historic district in Phoenix. I cant wait to give it my own little touch and share it. This is basically the first time I have been able to completely give a place my own style and make it my own. Can’t wait to show you all once it’s all done.

Anyways! To celebrate our almost 1 year birthday, here are some pretty little finds.

I will never pass up an opportunity to feature my loves at Mignonne Handmade

For the Little Ones: Best of Etsy

It can be safely said…. I am obsessed with cute children’s clothing. Not just cutesy flowers and bumble bees, but the kind of clothing that makes them look like little people!  I am talking unique and inspired looks for kids. I am also talking about the things surrounding a child. Toys, artwork for their room, etc. I love these makers on Etsy, providing an alternative to the typical children’s items.  Katie and I went through and picked out our favorites. 🙂

These are my Top Shops on Etsy for those things meant for your little one:

5. Armadillo Dreams– Wooden Toys

I am in LOVE with these unique little wooden toys. They are all Waldorf inspired, handmade, and so dang cute. Here are a couple of favorites from their shop.
