Happily Ever After

I know I haven't posted in a while, but I wanted to share pictures of my wedding in celebration of our anniversary. My husband and I got married 3 years ago today, barefoot on the beach.

Happy Anniversary Buckbee! I love you more than a gnome loves gardens.

Friday Excuses

Hello friends. I apologize for my lack of posts this week. My new teaching job is keeping me super busy and when I'm not at work, I just want to eat and sleep. No worries, I will return soon!

Spotlight Seller

I am a sucker for stationary (this sentiment belongs in a card). I barely write to anyone, yet I am compelled to purchase every pretty little card I come across.

One of my favorite Etsy print shops is the Wheeler Studio. Her illustrations of nature, bikes and can-can girls are really quite lovely. I also enjoy the quotes.

Whip It

I really enjoy coming of age movies like Juno and Away We Go, so I was thrilled to discover this trailer. Whip It is about an awkward school girl who falls head over wheels in love with roller derby, against her mother's will. Love the music. Love the girl power vibe. Love the girl scout uniforms. Whip It comes out October 9.

Wondering what kind of roller girl you are? Check out the world famous roller girl name generator. Mine is Judy Boom.

Spotlight Seller

Mama's Little Babies is in the spotlight today. This talented seller creates eccentric jewelry that reflects the Victorian Era. From tattooed ladies to trapeze artists, her illustrated pieces are extraordinary. Here are some of my favorite little babies.

The Littles

I am fascinated by the use/manipulation of miniatures in photography, such as tilt-shift, so I was thrilled to discover the work of Vincent Bousserez. His work transforms everyday objects into a colossal world for little plastic people. The perspective is amazing.

Spotlight Seller

This week's Spotlight Seller is Corrabelle of The Mayberry Sparrow. This artist hand carves rubber stamps using original designs that can be described as cutesy, retro, and whimsical. I want them ALL, but I would probably stamp everything in sight. Who needs tattoos!

Here are a few of my favorite designs...

Breathe and Smile

I know we'll find a house that we both love.
I just have to breathe and smile.
I know I'll find a job that makes me happy.
I just have to breathe and smile.
I know that everything will work out for the best.
I just have to breathe and smile.

Spotlight Seller

Dear Readers (all 5 of you),

I am starting another weekly feature. This one is called Spotlight Seller. Every Wednesday I will choose an Etsy seller to feature and gab about. I have 333 favorite sellers listed in my shop, so I don't think it will be an issue finding features, but please share yours to add to the list. Thanks!

This week I will start at the very beginning. My very first love on Etsy...The Black Apple. Emily Martin is one of my crafting/fashion heroes. Her artwork is amazing! Her characters are both haunting and beautiful. They remind me of the Baudelaire orphans from A Series of Unfortunate Events. And one more thing, she is the TOP seller of prints on Etsy! See here.

No More Ink

I really want another tattoo, but I am trying oh so hard to control the urge. 2 friends of mine just got new tattoos and they are quite lovely. I wish I had pictures to share, but instead here are some I found online that I've been fawning over. This probably isn't helping me fight the urge. Doh!
