Market Day & A Music Show

Another Market Day Iowa down...always a great event to be part of and a privilege to be featured amongst so many local creatives.

Similar booth set-up as last month with lots of pretty new things! (P.S. There WILL be an Etsy shop update COMING SOON.)

Huge thanks to my darling hubby who helped me pack/ transport everything to the venue and so willingly toted around my pink suitcase. LOVE HIM.

I just had enough time for a nap between tearing down my booth and hitting the road to Omaha for SHE & HIM!

It was a gorgeous night for an outdoor concert and we actually got super close to the stage! Of course, Zooey was as adorable as you'd imagine her to be.

Our goal was meet Mrs. Gibbard in person, but alas, she disappeared from the venue immediately after the show.

M.Ward signed our vinyls instead, which [kind of] made up for it.

It does look a little lonely without Zooey's autograph...

Not a bad weekend at all though:)

Best of the Week Vol. Forty-Eight


1. Fly Girls is a gallery of stewardess uniforms over the years for various airlines. I'll admit that I still have romanticized notions of being a flight attendant...

2. Opening Ceremony debunks the no-wearing-white-after-Labor-Day myth...and provides some beatiful suggestions on sporting it through the winter.

3. Richard Branson: If could do it all over again.

4. The best Criterion Film Collection covers that never were.

5. Cynthia Rowley presents limited edition line of designer BAND-AID's. If only nursing wounds was always this fabulous!

A Beautiful Mess

Welcome to my craft room! It's been disaster of late as Market Day Iowa is fastly approaching...

Customized shopping bags.

This is one of the larger mirrors that will be available. I may have out-did myself by making almost too many things for my booth! Can't wait for you all to see the new goods...

Stop by and say 'hello' on Saturday!

This post has been a long time coming...I've been waiting for something special and the opportunity has finally arrived!

She & Him, the musical duo of Zooey D. & M. Ward, are playing a show in Omaha this weekend and I GOT TIX! Needless to say, I am quite looking forward to it.
