This Little Piggy went to Market -At the Spring Handmade Cavalcade!

My Sunday morning of volunteering for the SHC at the Bell House in Brooklyn, after a run to buy toilet paper and an hour of handing out fliers, turned into a shopping spree! Since I live in Westchester, it was my first time to see some the shops of the New New in person. To invoke the Martha, also a Westchester denizen, there were so many "Good Things" that it was hard to stop openning up the wallet.
The first item I just could not resist was this joyous little pillow from Cakehouse, that matched my sky blue & floral livingroom perfectly.

The end of the school year approaches, so I found these two bright and charming notebooks from Journalistic Tendencies, handmade with recycled papers, and just the right gift for my daughter's teacher.

Next, I restocked my supply of birthday cards from Waisze - all cupcakes, to remind my nearest and dearest of my own little cupcake beads.

Since it was Mother's Day I had to pick up this sterling silver cat mask pendant from Caja Jewelry for my hip, pootie loving Mom. Such a modern little gem! I'd hearted it on Etsy and found I could not resist in person.

Lastly, I was not going out that door without 2 boxes of tiny cupcakes from Nine Cakes. After a chinese dinner out, they made for a charming dessert. So lovely, with firm, pure tasting cake and the most silky smooth buttercream we've had in ages. Bravo, Nine Cakes!

Home again, Home again, Jiggety Jig!

Look at Me! Look at Me!

I feel like Arthur's little sister running around saying "Look at ME! Look at ME!" with this first post. In other words, an embarrassment to others. Just dipping my toes in the bloggy waters, but heres some pix of my product - whoops, what an unromantic way of putting that - my work.
