Obviously, Oklahoma. I have no photos or stories to share. If you need additional information about what’s going on – just turn on your TV or go to Facebook. You know that everyone on Facebook is an expert on everything. I’m going to focus on things that cannot compare to the devastation in Oklahoma, but they still upset me.

First, Happy Endings was canceled. It’s probably your fault. It was moved to Friday evenings, ABC had a #savehappyendings campaign and it was cut. I thought about protesting ABC because of it. I had to look at a list of their shows to remember what they aired. First, it was ridiculous stuff like Grey’s Anatomy (Seriously?! That thing is still on?) and Revenge. Then, I saw Nashville (okay…it’s a little ridiculous too) and Modern Family. I may still have to watch these but the whole time I’ll still be sad about Happy Endings.

Here are Buzzfeed’s “36 reasons Happy Endings is the Best Show on TV.” There are rumors on the internets that a cable station (USA or TNT) may pick it up. Until then, I’m gonna have to play with my Jane paper doll.

Then, I saw this piece of Jenny’s art.

I immediately stopped walking down a sidewalk and “pulled over.” I quickly went to her Etsy site to buy it. I put it in my cart and got an “Oops” window and began to panic because I jumped to the conclusion that someone was doing the exact same thing. I tried again and sure enough I got “Sold Out.” I cursed out loud and threw my phone in my purse. It was not my proudest moment. So, I’m going to commission something. I just can’t take it anymore.

Make me happy and donate to the American Red Cross. You can donate to the disaster fund here or to a local chapter. Additionaly, you can always text “REDCROSS” to 90999 for a $10.00 donation.

You heard me. This post is about baby hats.

I’ve been asked about the Raggedy Ann wig from this post a couple of times and I cannot find who sells it. The seller that uses that photo is Amarmi. I’m not sure about the seller nor am I sure about Raggedy Ann wigs besides they’re readily available on Etsy. However, I am sure that babies in hats can be cute and they’re available at Amarmi.

She’s super cute for Easter and I’d obnoxiously take a bajillion photos of her ready for church.

Here’s my card

I’m in need of calling cards. I have business cards and have calling cards for the blog. However, I need some that are more plain in information – like all you get is my name and contact information. Old school contact information. I’m rarely on Twitter and find myself on Facebook less and less.  Here are some contenders.

Leafy

I adore perusing Absolutely Beautiful Things. Anna Spiro has beautiful taste and I love her aesthetic. She doesn’t regularly post and I love seeing what she shares like this photo of her shop, Black and Spiro.

Yes, the pillow is this fabric. The fabric on the lampshade is Peter Dunham’s fig leaf and is an instant classic. It’s been shown many places and I always like it.

here

It inspired me to look for “knock off” or similar fabrics. None of them were close enough for me, espeically since none were fig leaves. Still, here’s what I found.

here

I found a Tommy Bahama Banana Leaf tablecloth at Tuesday Morning for $30.00.

I don’t care for the dark brown leaves.

Of course, I’m going to keep an eye out on eBay for a remnant. So, if you have any of Peter Dunham’s fig leaf laying around please let me know.

I have long liked McCoy Pottery, but I don’t know enough about it. I plan/vow to myself that I’m going to get some books and really study up on it. Right now, I just like what I like and have a few pieces. Here is some of what I like:

Bead and Leaf Planter

Green Bead and Leaf Planter

Trio of bamboo planters

These would be great for a set of herbs or a trio of succulents. This planter would be great too.

Tulip trio

 

Egg Cookie Jar

Teal Honeycomb Cookie Jar

Tiny planter

McCoy yellow bamboo planters

There are a few other of these pieces available here and here.

Frog planter

I’ll have to go through my pieces as I need some small planters for our kitchen and my vanity. However, I know I would like some bead and leaf pieces. That frog is tempting too.

With the Fourth of July coming up, it’s easy to become patriotic. I’m not sure what the word is for when you become proud of your state/hometown, but you should do that too. Here are some items to help you with that.

Tennessee is the best. Obviously. It’s the only ten I see.
I recognize how awful of a joke/pun that is.

I have a necklace in the shape of Tennessee, pre-Etsy, but I like this one better. Now, it’s so much easier to find that stuff.

I had to throw something in from Raygun.
