< Aunt Bucky >

One of my all-time favorite Etsy shops has been Aunt Bucky. I've never purchased anything from it, but I really want one of these little dresses. And they're on sale for a mere $60 reduced from $100. Pretty unbeatable cuteness.

< Lucky Elephant >

I love this print from Oopsy Daisy.

* Hsinping Pan *

I know I've seen her art around, but I really discovered Hsinping Pan's art when I saw this adorable Boy & Elephant art on the cover of Babybug magazine (below, image from Magic Murals where you can buy it as decal or wallpaper). Art available on her Etsy shop. Alphabet is also a wall decal, available at Polkadot Peacock.

( goodbye summer )

Well, we're moving into autumn (yay!) and it may be the middle of winter when I finally release my "Suns" series. My ballerinas are finally done (although color variations are coming), and next on the horizon is my "owls" series (stay tuned...and don't worry, there's always room for more owls in the market). But I thought I'd throw out this preview of what I've been toying with for the first in my series of large mid-century-modern-style suns. I really want to have them printed on canvas. Big. But that will get committing cost-wise. Any comments? And, I'd really love to hear comments on what subject matters ya'll are interested in (is there a void in the market)? Forgive me for being so candid in my marketing research.

<<<< Missoni for Target >>>>

I spied the Missoni for Target ads in the last Vogue (the collection is coming September 13 until October 22). So I searched online to see if I could get some more images of what was coming and I was thrilled to find the official lookbook on Fashionista. These pieces won't last long! I am ready to zip in tomorrow morning and get my faves

- the prudent homemaker -

I am loving this site, The Prudent Homemaker, put on by an LDS (that's short for Latter-day Saint or Mormon, for those of you who are saying, Huh?) woman who, at one point in her married life, had very little money to go on. She learned how to make gourmet and tasty meals on a budget and was eventually inspired to make this site. It has great recipes (with great photos) and lots of useful info on gardening, stocking your pantry, and cooking. You can even visit recipes based on the season. Go check it out!

< Resort 2012 >

So much cute stuff! I just went to to review the collections. I spent yesterday evening watching The September Issue (off of Netflix instant streaming). So I was craving a bit of high fashion. Sigh. Oh yes, and to all of you who are annoyed with me for posting about sites to get referral credits, don't worry: I won't do it again. I do recommend them, however, because I've gotten some pretty sweet stuff. But I don't want to seem like I'm taking advantage of ya'll.
