worth checking out!

There are a couple new {to me} websites in town that are worth checking out ...

Made By Hand. By ME. is all about handmade items {think Etsy}, featuring some pretty fun treasures.

And then there's White Elephant Vintage, a Canadian shop with all sorts of fun vintage items. I myself am the owner of a new {vintage} camera from their store! After reading about Holle & Jane, I'm convinced I'd have a blast shopping for goodies with them!

diy table cards

{via creature comforts}

Can Snippet & Ink ever do wrong? I fall in love just about everyday with a new inspiration board and new set of colors. And just when I think I've seen the best ... I'm proven wrong.

This inspiration board is proof! I somehow missed it last month, but thankfully Ez, at Creature Comforts, hasn't gotten it off her mind and created an inspiration board all her own ... along with DIY downloadable table cards!

Exciting stuff if you ask me!

Erika at delphine has awarded me with a 'fabulous' award!  Who me?  Why I'm honored!  Truly ...

Erika constantly inspires better design ... through her blog, her stationery, and all her fabulous finds.  So it truly is an honor to have this award come from her.

Okay, then ... the rules state I should share five addictions of mine, and choose five people to pass the award to.

Hmmm ... so just five huh?

1. iPhone - hands down.  And do I even need to explain why?
2. twittering - seems to have gotten the best of me.
3. chapstick - I can't leave home without it.
4. photography - I can spend hours taking photos, looking at photos, editing photos ...
5. slippers & fireplaces - {shhh, that's six} I really can't have one without the other.

Now for the award ... this is really hard, because I subscribe to no less than 100 blogs.  Google Reader is my nemesis.  When I haven't gotten to Reader and it's overflowing with neglected posts, which blogs do I always make sure I read?  And the award goes to ...

1. Simply Seleta - a new-to-me blog, I've been in love since I found it.
2. LobotoME - we carry Jenny's products in the store and well ... she's just really cool.
3. simplesong - Suann designs beautiful products that she features, as well as some of her other favorite finds.
4. The Speckled Egg - I love Jane's mix of posts.  She features fashion, stationery, design ... it's a fun read.
5. Me Ra Koh - what can I even say about this blog?  Inspiration, photography ... it feeds my soul.

Tag ... you're it!
