Watermelon Season! May 30, 2011

Wishing everyone a lovely Memorial Day weekend… picnics, parades, family time all whilst honoring our fallen service members. Today, we’ll be heading to a parade in CT where our friend’s oldest son will be marching with the Young Marines and thinking of friends and family who are no longer with us. I try to keep my blog very light, fun and upbeat but wanted to mention the true meaning of Memorial Day.

Unofficially, Memorial Day marks the start of the summer season! Especially here in New England where we see sailboats in the water and crowds in Newport! I want to share a lovely, fresh treasury with you.

Watermelon– red, green, white and black. So delicious and refreshing. Doesn’t it make you think of summer days?

Curator notes


Thank you tutuchicboutique for including my mini ribbon flag cupcake toppers in your beautiful treasury! And I agree- I am happy that is becoming watermelon season too! In a couple weeks, we’ll have moved to the Florida panhandle and I see lots of beach days for our family this summer… as well as our first family vacation for three years!



Blast Out Friday! May 27, 2011

Our team name has changed but our goal is the same!  The Etsy Blast Out Friday is a group of Etsians who share the same target audience. During the week, we gather a list of items from member stores (participation in the list is voluntary) and then on Friday we blast the list out via different social media platforms!  It is a great way to promote your store! If you’re on Etsy and an avid Social Media follower, you have to check out this group!  Great way to gain exposure and promote your store, whilst with helping others with theirs! The team is also on Twitter #bofriday

Lovely pink juicy apple headband! For the apple of your eye! So kawaii! For my American friends… kawaii is Japanese for cute!!!! We heard this phrase a lot when we lived in Japan (every time we walked our dog along the seawall we’d hear lots of kawaii!!!!!!)

I just love the accessories at Caprica!
