I won this beautiful example of fine handiwork from a giveaway at  Bugs and Fishes by Lupin. It is a felt poppy brooch that is absolutely divine. Lupin has all kinds of craft tutorials and fun eye candy on her blog and she sells gorgeous brooches and tons of colors of glorious felt in her shop, and also her Etsy shop.


Thanks Lupin!


Cute Cards From Nicoletter April 28, 2010

Filed under: Wanted — Jessa @ Sparkle @ 7:54 pm

I bought these sweet little cards from the Nicoletter Etsy shop.  They are sooo darn cute.  The shop is based in Germany, and oh how I love getting mail from Europe.  They arrived within a week of ordering and they were packaged so sweetly.  She also has an awesome blog that is written in both English and German.  I know the purpose of cards is to send them to friends and loved ones…but these will be hard to part with.

How sick is this phone?!? I spotted this via sfgirlbybay this morning. I love all things retro. AND it comes in ORANGE!!  It would definitely fit in with my mid-century modern home. You can get it from Twine.
