There's No Place Like Home

What little girl hasn't dreamed of owning their very own pair of ruby slippers? I remember watching The Wizard of Oz when it used to come on just one time a year. I'd sit patiently to get the first glimpse of those beautiful ruby slippers on the witch under the house, then cringe as her little feet shriveld up when the good witch removed the slippers.

These days, little girls can buy cute red glitter shoes at Nordstrom and now we have a little taste of magic via the folks at Hong Kong shoe boutique On Pedder. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, they have recruited 17 iconic desingers to recreate the famous ruby slipper, The Kansas Project, and auctioned them off to benefit the Hong Kong Cancer Fund. I have always had a thing for red shoes, maybe it's because of this movie. Drool with me ladies...

  1. OOh, I love the third and sixth pairs of shoes! I got a pair of crocodile skin (fake) red pumps for Christmas two years ago. Maybe I'll wear them to work tomorrow!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!



New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.


Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
