Song Inspiration

I just listened to the 09 Paramore album, and there's one song in particular that I lovelove. It's called "All I Wanted" and I've had it on repeat for 3 days and counting. The music itself makes me think of dusk, with some glittery lights - being wrapped in a cape or blanket with some hot chocolate or cider. Ok, it can have a summer feel too, that includes a night in the park. But it's fall now, so I like the glittery lights and blanket in bright red orange leaves at dusk.

Some images to go with my interpretation of the setting of the song:

Oh, and the rain picture is because fall to me = rain. I'm in Oregon, what can I say.

This last picture goes with the same feel to me, but is not set outside. It's ok, it's just as inspirational.

October Treats

Dun dun dun, okay it's time for our fun October giveaway!! No tricks involved :)
We have gotten a lot of feedback on what you guys wanted to see in a giveaway and the #1 answer was jewelry. But we were torn, because we just came out with a popular mustache mug set that we thought you might be interested in also. So.... instead of picking one or another, we're giving BOTH!

The grand prize is a mustache espresso set - they're SUPER cute!

I kind of think they would be perfect for a girls tea party as well.

And the second prize is this crafty fox pendant necklace. He's completely adorable, and is on a great necklace made from the same rubber as wetsuits {I know, cool right?}
