Brand spankin’ new!

Here it is, the brand spankin’ new design!   They will be available on our etsy store and in our store (as well as other retail locations) within the next week or two!


it’s that time of year again!

It’s that time of year again – leaves falling, the temperature is dropping, fires are burning in fireplaces and living in Seattle means, the skies are grey and rainy.  It’s also the time of year where we all start to figure out what we should get our family and friends for Festivus or whatever holiday you celebrate.  Or in my case, panic about what to get or make.  Then when the panic is over I realize I don’t have any time to do the things I wanted to do, so I run to the stores and buy something that is not really want I wanted to get.  So in an effort to make your life and my life a bit easier, I will be posting once a week My Favorite Things complete with links for easy shopping. It will not be a random group of favorites.  I will make sure they are themed.  So there will be a favorites for dads, moms, sisters, brothers, friends, kids, grandparents, crafty folk, eco friendly folk, foodies, hipsters… you get the idea.  Heck, I may even post a couple of times a week.  And if you miss any of it, I will make sure they are up on my Pinterest My Favorites – gifts for the holidays board.

And now it’s off to scour the web for some really cool stuff!

The new roommate’s name is…

After a long conversation about which name really fit, the new roommate and I decided on Priscilla!  As I’m a huge Elvis fan and we really love the nickname ‘Cilla, not to mention the costumes in Priscilla Queen of the Dessert!  So that means our winner is Erin!  Thanks everyone for helping us getting a name for my new best friend!

And the winner is…

The Winner of the giveaway is Michaela!

And the winners as far as new designs are as follows:

In a landslide – Julia Child takes the number one spot.

And it was a close one for 2nd and 3rd and 4th place but it looks like the Brilliant Stove takes second place and the Einstein quote takes 3rd and the Conrad quote takes 4th!

Thanks so much to everyone for the feedback.  It really means the world to me!

And keep watching because there may be another giveaway in September…  And if there is, what theme might you want to see for the giveaway?

A couple of Theo Chocolate Candy Bars

A 12oz bag of 12,000 Rain Gardens Coffee from Caffe Vita

Teas from Market Spice in Pike Place Market
