(pssst! i can’t remember where i found this giraffe image. if you know please tell me so i can credit!)
Ahh it’s Friday! With all our post vacation madness I’m still playing catch up and here are a few things that caught my eye while surfing around.
1. PENCIL PRETTIES.
Kate ofÂ Mini EcoÂ is a genius. She crafted up these amazing necklaces over at Design Mom and I think they are so sooo fun. I think kiddo’s would get a kick out of mama wearing ’em too. Check out the tutorial here.
2. AWESOME LAMPSHADE DIY.
Wow. This thing is so cool…and wait til I tell you it’s made out of coffee filters!! Oh yes. Love. See how over at aunt peaches‘.
3. EXTRA TASTY TREAT.
Oh Sweet Paul! A Blueberry Tart with Custard Caramel Sauce???? Oh. My. Lawdy. Recipe for death by blueberry goodnessÂ here.
4. EXTRA FANCY SPEX.
These paper eye glasses are such a wonderfully charming little craft to do with boys or girls! From my sweet pal Teri over at Giddy Giddy.
5. VIEW FROM ABOVE.
Cirque du Soleil founder Guy LalibertÃ© is a lucky man. Besides being a gazillionaire, he recently got to travel in space as a “private explorer”. He orbited the earth for 11 days and took these phenomenal photos. WOW. See more here.
6. ADORABLE TRUNK SHOW.
Ahhhhh! Which is cuter, the little guys with the red satchel or the little girl with the silvery pom pom toes?? I really can’t decide. Find them over at cloth and thread.
8. MINI MAD MOD.
My secret shame? I adore the 60s and I work in advertising….and I’ve never seen an episode of Mad Men. I know….I KNOW! Even so, I was quite taken by this peek into Sally Draper’s closet over on the Coveteur.
9. GILT FREE GOODIES.
