Etsy Roundup- Chandeliers

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Maybe it’s because as a little girl I was convinced that the big, glistening crystal chandelier over my grandmother’s dining room table was made of diamonds. Maybe it’s because I live in Arizona and we all have to have ceiling fans. Whatever the reason, I’ve become obsessed with gorgeous, ornate hanging light fixtures. I’ve especially […]

I’ve been hearing lately that pie could overtake cupcakes as the […]

With making such a decision, finding some fancy […]

Baby: My favorite baby boy shower gifts

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

It makes me itch when I see baby boy clothes with cheesy sayings like: Mommy’s Little Slugger or 2 Cute 4 Words. As a new mom of a baby boy, I never realized how little there is for boys. When I mentioned my frustration to my husband he said, “He’s a boy. You put him […]
