i love you more than squirrels

Are you kidding me?! I’m not sure how I’m surviving without this print in my house.

Happy Weekend, lovelies! This beach photo from less than a week ago (!) really seems crazy to me as we’ve had frost/freeze warnings the last couple nights here in northern Michigan and we’ve rediscovered our fleece jackets and sock drawers again. Summery summer is over. How do you feel about that? I love wearing a scarf, so I’m in heaven…

I realized that it’s been a long time since I did a Friday “click on,” so here goes… Some fun places for you to get lost in ye ole Cyberspace this weekend. Enjoy!

What’s been blowing your skirt up lately? Send me a link. XO

sunhat AND a bib!

Lovelies, you’ve got to check this out. I wrote about Roen Design earlier this summer in regards to their Leelanau Peninsula kids clothing and Roen Design just released their newest product: a sunhat and bib in one! Not only is it pure genius, it’s a-door-bell too, isn’t it? I told Forest of Roen Design that I am not usually a bib-using Mom, especially when we’re out-and-about, but if it were built in to something else, then I would be more likely to use one (instead of relying on my stain stick…). Would you? Have you ever seen anything like this?

You can get your hat/bib combo right here.

summer’s coolest cotton: Roen Design

A friend of mine launched a great kid’s clothing line this past year: Roen Design. I’m especially loving the Leelanau County map pieces, as seen above. Some are handmade like the dress and some are upcycled items like the darling collared shirt. You can find Forest’s unique designs at some of the Leelanau County farmer’s markets this summer or contact her with a custom order through her Etsy shop. Congratulations, Forest!

I had to

I didn’t really have a choice, did I? I *had* to get this shirt for the little birdie. An adorable squirrel on an orange shirt for $6. Um, OK. What a fun Etsy squirrel find, no? Thanks, Kitschy Home! There are more cute designs too: hedgehog or owl, anyone?

Don’t you just love Etsy? When’s the last time you got lost in that wonderland, lovelies?

aah, Etsy. How I love thee.

I love this poster by Dear Colleen I saw on Etsy this afternoon. Don’t you? It makes me (almost) want to spruce my printing press back up and get cranking in all my, err, spare time…
