Friday Link Hootenany :: Cool Stuff to Browse

Here are some things that caught my eye over the past week!

1. PRETTY VINTAGE INSPIRED JEWELRY from Nest Pretty Things. I think these are so lovely—the color combinations are espectially fetching for little girls and mamas.

2. DR. SEUSS HAD A BIRTHDAY! He is one of my tippy top favorites. From Cat in the Hat to One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, I love them all! They even made Green Eggs and Ham at Wolfie’s school, which was super cute.

3. JEWELRY HOLDER from POLLI I am utterly smitten with these! Only problem is I don’t have pierced ears, but how cool are they??

4. OSCARS. Welllllllll, they were a little “meh” but I loved Anne Hathaway’s many gowns. And while I never really like what Helena Bonham Carter is wearing, I still totally love her. Her expression as they announced her nomination said to me, “THIS is a woman I’d love to hang out with!”

5. WALLPAPER. Is it weird that I am obsessing on my own post?? I need some photographic wall paper STAT.

6. GINGHAM. I love it. Wolfie’s got so many ginham shirts now he’s gonna look like a picnic this summer—but a verrrry stylish one.

The one above is from Zara Kids. But I’ve seen them at Target and even Walmart, for the more budget minded.

7. THIS “UP” THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY is all kinds of fabulous! (That’s “Up” like the Pixar movie!) It was for a sweet little 7 year old, and they projected the movie on a sheet in the backyard. SO great! I especially love the wreath made out of balloons. See more here.

8. Did I mention I met Al Pacino this week?? Hee.

9. PRETTY FRECKLE FELT FLOWERS. Six years ago Jenny sent me some adorable felt flower hairpins. I love them to this day….they are so playful and sweet. After much begging, she is making them again! I highly recommend ’em for mamas and kiddos alike!

10. OUR ETSY GUEST CURATOR ROUND UP. It was both an honor and a pleasure to be invited to Guest Curate the Etsy blog. If you haven’t stopped by, please head on over and check it out! I’m really proud of what we put together—our four different collections were inspired by classic kid’s books (which as you know are a passion of mine!). I love it so much I’m thinking of making this a regular feature over here too! Here is just one of them:

    Dr. Seuss’ birthday?! When you were pre-school age, we lived at UCSD Graduate Student Apartments. Traditionally we all drove to La Jolla on Halloween Eve for our kids to go trick n treating at Dr. Seuss’house, fabulously decorated. Dad has to look through his ‘slides’ to send you!

    Jenny sent me one of her hairpins in my most recent order and I LOVE it! They are super well made too.

    And ladies, congratulations x a million again on your guest curator spot on Etsy. They couldn’t have asked a more stylish duo.

    those hairpins are killing me since violet is too young to leave one in her hair for more than 8 seconds.

    gingham shirts at target, too!

  5. BethR says

    alright, so it took me less than a minute to decide i should talk myself into hairpins for future use, but it looks like the link for jenny’s felt flowers is broken.

  6. Ruthh says

    Haha I just love Helena’s expression there !!!!! XD

  7. erin from swonderland says

    gingham and jenny and celeb meetings… fun fun. and alice has that lamp in your etsy roundup in her room! the music box doesn’t work anymore and the kids are constantly pulling off the cat’s tail, but it sure is cute.
