Recently I was reading a post by The Sampler Girl about some of her favorite things. Which reminded me that it's been ages since I've shared some of the fun things I've run across lately!

Check out this darling owl wristlet I got for Bean… she and I were in a little shop called Francesca's (my older girls' favorite place to shop), and when we spotted this, we knew it must be hers. (She loves owls.)

Don't you love that stamped leather? I know it's not called "stamped" leather, but right now the correct word eludes me.

Here's the back:

This is my very favorite kind of polish… Sally Hansen's Insta-Dry nail color. The square-round brush is the best I've ever used, and you can get about 4 1/2 nails polished with one dip in the bottle. It's very cool.

This particular color is "Lively Lilac." (And yes, it does dry almost instantly.)

Sophie had a book fair at school this past week, and Sabrina asked me to pick her up a couple of these pens:

She likes how people get freaked out when she does this:

I'm planning on doing a stitch-along with my mom soon; we'll be working on Scarlet Letter's Elizabeth Sheffield, and I've discovered a new kind of silks I'll be using on it. They're called Carrie's Creation silks, and they're just gorgeous! (I got mine at Reflections Framing – 402.331.1740.)

(By the way, the linen is 40 ct. Meadow Rue by Lakeside Linens.)

Sometimes I like to peruse Etsy, in the hopes of getting myself in trouble. I love the smell of cloves, so when I stumbled on this lip color by The Epically Epic Soap Company, I knew I had to try some…

It's actually a lip tint in "Red Clove." It does smell very mildly of clove, and it goes on very smoothly.

And that's it! No food this time! I'm going to have to remedy that, bc I do love food. (Especially Fruit Pastilles, which are from England and are always calling my name, even this far across the pond. I should write to Kate and Wills to see if they'll send me some.)

And now I must take my leave and get back to whatever it was I was doing before I sat down here.

Oh yeah…

  1. How funny- I just bought some Sally Hansen nail polish in a very similar shade today! I don’t think it was the insta-dri though- whatever it was it was on sale at Target for 2.04 and I had a coupon for 1.00 off. 😀 That lip balm looks awesome. Gotta go look it up! And I am sure that Kate and Will would happily send you some Fruit Pastilles, when they are back from their honeymoon. ♥ 😉

  2. Oh fun! Love that owl wristlet! And those pens — hilarious! I just love things like that! lol! So fun!!! Love Elizabeth Sheffield! I want to do her someday too!

  3. I’m getting very tempted to get Elizabeth Sheffield also and join in your stitchalong (in spirit)… I used the Carrie’s silk threads a few years ago and they are simply lovely! I used to get mine from my one needlework shop here – but it closed down. I don’t think the other two carry her threads, but I’ll have to check. They are so reasonably priced and just delightful to stitch with!!
