Eclectic Armadillo - Beautiful Meditation Cushions!

I have been working so hard to redo my house and create a beautiful space for my art room. It is a work in progress. I have this table, (will post picture soon) It is from Indonesia and is made from a reclaimed shipwreck. Up until now, I have had no idea what to do with it. My friend says to me, you need to get some beautiful pillows and put them on the floor around the table...

Finding the right pillows has been challenging to say the least...then, low and behold, I stumbled upon this shop in a most random way! I didn't find the pillows, they found me!


Aren't they the most beautiful pillows you have ever seen? They evoke such calmness and have almost a spiritual quality to them. Plus, they look COMFY! Always a good attribute in a pillow!

Be sure you head right over to The Eclectic Armadillo and check out her wares!

SunnySweetNovember - Try her Mochi! Amazing!

MoChI-Delicious Mochi Sampler Platter

What is Mochi, you ask?
Mochi is a traditional food popular in Japanese cuisine, made from specially treated rice Mochi is made by soaking short grain or sticky rice overnight, cooking it, and pounding it into a sticky paste. The paste is molded into shapes like mochi ice cream balls which is a scoop of ice cream covered by the mochi paste or mochi bits which is use as an ice cream topper like sprinkles or eaten on their own as snacks.
My daughter and I ordered some of this delicious Japanese candy from SunnySweetNovember recently! It was a nice treat! We added ours to hot chocolate and icecream and ever ate it straght from the bag! Order a sampler platter and try several flavors! Great for kids and adults too :-)

Handmade cookies by Baked!

Looking for something a little different to serve at your next bridal shower or wine tasting party? Or are you looking for a unique hostess gift or house warming present? I bought these cookies for a wine tasting bridal shower that I am throwing in a week. They are truly works of art!

Not only does this seller offer a unique assortment of cookie styles, but she shipped super fast and was pleasant to buy from. I have to say, I love her panda cookies or how about one of her baby onesie cookies for a baby shower or a present for a new mom?

Her Dia de los muertos cookies look simply too pretty to eat

1940's Vintage Style finds - Hats

Lately my tastes in clothing have been taking on a vintage spin. I am really LOVING the 1940s style at the moment. (with a little 1920's and a little 1950's thrown in)

What were the styles then? What was popular and what did they like? My grandmother would have been in her 20s and early 30s in the 1940s. I know she would have gotten a huge kick out of my new clothing style passion.

First off: Hats, hats and hats!

I bought two hats from Minana on etsy
I can't wait to get them! (and I WILL be posting pictures!)

Here is the second one...a wool cap style hat with the netting! Tres cool!

I also fell in love with this hat from EcoCouture. The price isn't for the feint of heart. But it is really beautiful.

I also bought this little hat from Imaginuity, adorable, isn't it? It has a romantic, vintage, Parisian flare to it:

There is nothing boring about this Black Velour Bow Cloche hat from BoringSidney I can't wait to pick this hat up! It is beautiful and perfect.
