Sunday Shopping

I am up drinking my coffee and window shopping this morning.  Waiting for Rachel to rise and shine!

Today is a big day.  It is her first catering job where we are not only making all the goodies and beverages but we are setting up and serving as well.  So…we will be off and running soon.  This gig is for a piano recital/reception and I think it will be lovely!  I am sure Rachel will be posting ALL about it very soon.

So back to the window shopping ~ I found this cool sight called Polyvore. First thing I run across is this OH SO CUTE plaid/prairie/apron dress:

Pretty darn cute and only 2,750.00 Euros.  WOW what a bargain…NOT!! I can make this dress, can’t you? Anyway, when I stumbled on this I then searched “prairie” on this site and oh…cute ideas!  VERY cute.  Here are a couple of things I want to try and make or find a pattern for:

But instead of me taking up space showing you everything I LOVED on this site…go here…and see for yourself!

Before I run off to help Rachel, I wanted to show you one more place I found last night.  My oldest daughter is an enabler just in case you didn’t know this.  She knows good and well not to send me etsy shoppes to look at.  She knows I need to stay away from there but NOOOO, she IM’s me this shoppe.

orangeginghamI am a bit hung up on the gingham this morning.  Oddly enough, the dress I am wearing today to the recital and reception is black gingham!

Okay…I will leave you with one more site to peruse.  Sucre just go look around.  SO much inspiration.  I love LOVE LOVE zakka.  I do.  What’s not to love about this look?

sucreI know right?  ADORABLE!

I hope to get  pictures of the lovely gifts my friends, Karen and Tami brought me Friday evening when they stopped by for coffee.  They had been antiquing.  I was supposed to go, but with the family stuff going on, and catering jobs, I just couldn’t.  How sweet that they brought me goodies…one of which is a vintage apron that you have GOT TO SEE!! And the most adorable chicken pot holders!

They also got to sample Rachel’s homemade/from scratch/even the sauce/even the crust pizza that was waiting for me when I got home from the funeral home Friday afternoon. She will be posting her recipe and pictures on her own blog.

Have a sweet day everyone.

Rachel has a really amazing site. That cake is unbelievable!

OM Gosh, I just want to buy everything on Sucre!!!

I’m like a drug dealer that hangs out outside rehab centers.

I made donuts today! The photos are on flickr or you can wait and read the blog post tomorrow.

Yes you are! And I will blame you for my etsy habit. If I am not mistaken you “introduced” me. I ordered that kraft paper fabric. Yes. I. did. And I am not going to apologize. :p

Thanks for all the tips! Can’t wait to go browse…

I can see that you and I have quite similar tastes Susan! Oh, to only be a stone or two lighter . . .

Susan – I know that you have been crazy busy like me and I so want to chat. Let’s make a gmail chat date and I promise, promise, promise to keep our date! I love the Sucra site and want just about everything I see! ~Kelly
