{pretty [sewing] notecards by Emily Ann Designs}

This giveaway is now closed.

The other day I realized I needed to make a list for all the “thank you” cards I needed to write. A list?! It was then I decided to finally ORDER some pretty cards. I searched around on Etsy, probably even tweeted for a recommendation, and found myself in Emily Ann Designs shop.

LOVE! So I placed an order for cards + matching stickers. Looky look look at what I bought >>

They arrived the other day, and let me tell ya, they’re sew cute! The packaging was cute, the items them self are cute — yeow! And because I want to, I’m going to gift one lucky reader with any item valued at $16 {or less} from Emily’s shop so you can pick out your own set of notecards.

{AllSaints + their cool storefront!}

YEOW! Look at all those sewing machines! ^ I am paralyzed from their beauty.

Yesterday Emily emailed me about this shop >> AllSaints, a London-based company, and {swoon!} they have my attention. She sent me the image above… a picture taken from AllSaint’s San Francisco storefront display. Emily was so sweet — she said the display reminded her of me. And maybe my 1916 Singer sewing machine? ;]

More of AllSaints

* Where do they get all those sewing machines???

They even have an iPhone app:

I’m in love, love, love!

OK, a few more quick pics:


{Bauer — he vlogs}

We’ve had little puppy Bauer for 4 weeks and look at all the tricks he’s learned:

Also — Bauer decided he needed more time on-camera. {Like I could turn him down…}


Bauer and I went on our morning walk today, and BRRRRRRRRR!, it was so cold! And it is still cold out! Thirteen degrees, my friends. I ♥ Bauer and his big paws and little mohawk, so that number didn’t hold me back ;]

Three random things:
1. Bauer can’t “sit” on the hardwood floors… he tries but he always slides down to his tummy
2. I often catch Bauer looking at me and wagging his tail {did Zack teach him this?!}
3. Bauer brings me his leash when he’s ready for his morning walk

What 3 random things do you want to share today? :]
