Wishful Wednesday – Jumbo Hammock Chair May 26, 2010

I saw this item on one of my favorite blogs the other day Paper*Cake Finds and knew right then that this was my newest ‘crush’ item. In Montreal today it is a balmy 32 degrees with 45% humidity making it feel more like 36 (for my American friends this means: 97). It is a real rarity for May weather, considering last summer we only got about 2 weeks of this type of weather during August. So let’s be clear, I am not complaining in the least, I would rather this gorgeous weather than the wet, rainy, cool temperatures from last year. Bring it on!

I would enjoy it a lot more with this Hammock Chair from RiseNShineFarm on Etsy. Everything would look nicer, feel cooler, especially with a small table next to it for my drink *wink*

Enjoy!

Wishful Wednesday – FabricShoppe April 28, 2010

Why not include a supply shop? I love this shop and frequent it often. I love fabric, I love the feel of it, the different color ways, the designs. I’ve become a wee bit of a fabric addict/junkie. There are so many different reasons that make each unique and perfect for a certain creation. Many fabrics become part of my beloved stash, waiting for the perfect pattern. Right now I’m at a place where I need to use my stash before I purchase anything new. It almost saddens me because I love receiving new stuff in my mailbox. Often from the Fabricshoppe.

Once upon a time I laughed at my mother and grandmother for their stashes of fabric, and when my mother bought my Nana a mug with the slogan ‘She who dies with the most fabric wins!’

There are some great fabric shops online, but let me tell you what I love about the Fabricshoppe and continue to return: Jody is a fabulous seller with a super big heart, she runs a blog with tips and features ‘Everyday Beautiful’. She also sells a huge variety of fabric for all tastes.  The best part (for myself anyhow) is that she has a great selection of small pieces of fabric – fat quarters and a section of scrap packs called ‘surprise in my mailbox’. Oh, did I forget to mention she has a sale fat quarter each week for only $1? Yup, $1! If you follow her on twitter she often has other great promos and offers for her customers.

Here’s some of my top picks from her shop:

Build Your Fabric Stash-LARGE Surprise Fat Quarter Bundle of 16- SAVE

Andrea Victoria Fabric by Mind's Eye for Riley Blake- Yard Bundle, 5 total

SALE A Surprise In My Mailbox- Scrap pack of designer fabrics (9-15 different fabrics, depending on weight)

Girly Lagoon Fabric by Michael Miller-Fat Quarter Bundle-5 total


 

Wishful Wednesday April 14, 2010

Here’s my first edition of Wishful Wednesday – my not so secret anymore items that I’m crushing on (or shops). With Mother’s day around the corner these are things that could be put on my list (ok – a card will probably have to suffice this year).  My first crush is on the dresses of isadoraclothing on Etsy – she has such cute designs in any color under the rainbow. Each dress can be made to look like an entirely new number for different occasions. Never take the same photo again! How fun is that? They are also custom made for you with some of your measurements and the color selection of your choice.

This is my crush for a number of reasons: I love the dresses, I love that it is a Canadian shop, and I have many weddings to attend this summer a few with the same guests. Here is my favorite from her shop, I encourage you to check out her selection of clothing (dresses, gowns and bathing suits!)
