Linky Link Monday (…Tuesday)


I know, I know…it’s not actually Monday…but it’s close enough, right?

We have to pretend it’s Monday because our linky link simply cannot wait – it’s THAT fabulous!  We wouldn’t lie to you.

We’d like to exuberantly introduce you to…


The incredibly creative, delightful creator of this blog, Jessica Jones, is from Evanston, IL, and somehow gifts us with a constant flow of colourful, ingenious, exciting designs, DIY projects, freebie downloads (love them!) and fonts…plus inspired ideas.

Basically, we are hooked and we adore her and we hope that you will, too!

Our To Do List: Vintage Stuffapalooza!

Oh my goodness, we are so excited for this weekend here in the Twin Cities!  We’ve been hoarding some cash and making room in our apartments for some new, old stuff from Minnesota’s biggest antique weekend!

Our calendar is marked for two big events – we hope you’ll join us and find some amazing, awesome stuff!!!

Junk Bonanza

Antique Showcase


Outside my Minneapolis window right now I’m seeing fifty shades of grey…and I don’t mean the exciting kind.  Grey sky, grey ground, grey snert (you know – snow + dirt when it’s been sitting at the side of the road too long getting gross and dirty and grey?)

Inside it’s time for a change!  A springy one!  The folks over at the elli blog have these beautiful, delicate-looking watercolor butterfly free printables and four adorable ways to use them…I bet I can think of a few more to bring some no-snow vibes into my house.
