Stick it to me

It's a stick, and it sticks things to the wall. Get it? Oh my, I'm tired.
Push pins made of twigs from Design*Sponge. I think they're great.

what you see...

When put on the spot I have a difficult time explaining what it is about blind box figures that I love so much, and why I am willing to spend $5-10 on one little toy when I don't even know what I am going to get, but the fact remains that I find them irresistible. I guess it all started when I was a little kid collecting Happy Meal toys (which I still have, by the way, and am always interested in adding to the collection) and it seemed a natural progression to start collecting Dunnys. They're limited edition designer vinyl toys, and they are as addictive as all get out. So of course when I found these Disney Vinylmation blind boxes I just couldn't help myself. It was really difficult to limit myself to only two.

Come on, how cute are they?

Oh! My Darling.

I just discovered Darling Clementine via Parcel Post. The cards above are from the new Woodland Series, which I find to be the definition of happy. But there is plenty more where that came from!

Visit the Darling Clementine shop here! You're welcome.

craving new digs

The nesting instinct is setting in, and this is the stuff my dreams are made of.

(almost) back from fantasyland

I've been away for a bit, though you may not havenoticed really. Have I been diligently blogging from Disney World as though I had nothing better to do? No, although what's better than sharing some joy and inspiration with you all? That was rhetorical. Anyway, no. I have not been taking breaks from the excitement to blog- I had them all set up, pre-written and scheduled to post automatically! That's what I call being prepared. Vacation also means that I have spent very little time on the internet, checking feeds and all that. It means a few hundred unread items on Google Reader, and a hefty handful of things that I have starred to share with you later!

I have had an amazing time here (my first at any Disney park and I have a button to prove it!) Lots of fun rides and shows and plenty to look at, plus a very unique experience on Space Mountain. I am extremely exhausted, but I'm glad we did it. And don't worry, I'll share some photos when I actually get home.

So I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and I will be back at it this weekend!

What's not to like?

Some of you may know that I think this is pretty much the perfect family. Musician parents, cute kids, and Beatles covers to boot. I'm a little bit obsessed.
