Friday Faves #8

Via Cracker Jack Stitchery
Embroidery Hoop Art
This was an impulse buy and I love it. It's now hanging over my craft desk. The only problem is that now it's just begging me to get some more companion hoops!

Cardboard Cat Rocket
This. Do I really need to explain? Do I dare make this for my Lucy & Larry? Will the time and effort it requires be worth the short amount of time it's destined to survive before they tear it apart? Be sure to check out the step-by-step tutorial from Craft.

Diet Snapple Trop-a-Rocka Tea
So I'm way overdue on this one- I love, love, love this flavor of Snapple. This was the special edition Snapple created for Bret Michaels after he won Celebrity Apprentice last year. It is a blend of green tea and black tea with pear, cinnamon and mango flavors- and only 10 calories a bottle (you wouldn't know it!). If you can still find it on the shelves at your local grocery store, be sure to snag it... and send it my way!

P.S. Don't forget about my sale!

Friday Faves #7

Vintage/Flea Markets & Antique Malls
This week's Friday Faves is brought to you by the letter V for Vintage! I have been addicted with shopping at flea markets and antique malls lately and have snatched up several treasures along the way- but with the exception of a sneak peek below, that's for a post (or two) for another day. :) So far, my favorite spots in the Seattle area include the Fremont Sunday Market2nd Saturdayz and Haystack Antiques. Of course, please let me know if you have any suggestions!

Mason Jars
I'm not really sure why or what I plan on doing with them, but I have been loving these little old blue mason jars. Above is a peak at the little collection I have amassed so far. Should I just use them as vases? Or to organize my craft supplies? Or shall I make a chandelier?

Vintage Typewriters
I always liked vintage typewriters, but I didn't fall in love until I stumbled across this beautiful restored pink one above on Pinterest. But the $595 price tag- yikes! I reached the conclusion this will have to be a flea market find & DIY project. Coincidentally enough, it turns out Little Miss Holls has been feeling the same way about vintage typewriters- and I am SO impressed with her new old typewriter! Check out the beauty below and then visit her post to see how she did it.

New Items - UW & WSU Inspired Leather Wrap Bracelets!

I'm big on school/team spirit (go Irish!) so really it's about time that I introduce my new "northwest rivalries" line of bracelets! I was inspired when I decided to make a purple & gold bracelet for my dear Husky-diehard friend and coworker who just left for a new job. After making hers, I decided to make another for my shop, then reached the conclusion that if I was going to make a Husky bracelet, I better keep my Coug friends happy and make one for them too!

I believe I'll do Mariners (I know, how have I not already made this?) and Seahawks next, then maybe something for you Ducks & Beavers after that! As always, let me know if you have any comments or suggestions. :)
