You’ve just gotta love a nice big bowl of soup on a cold winter’s day. My favorite is this organic tomato soup… but I do add a bit of mozzarella cheese for that yummy melty extra goodness! To complete my delicious experience I decided to make myself a special hand stamped vintage soup spoon. Gotta love it!
When I found this little robot on Etsy I just knew I had to share! The first thing that came to mind was that this would make an awesome gift for my 7 year old son who’s favorite movie is called Robots but then I thought, “Hmmm, I wouldn’t mind putting this on display in my living room!” It is so adorable. The shop is called Kitchen Robots by Leuckit and you can find it on Etsy (where else?)!
Donna Provo Leuck is the proud owner of this very unique shop and she has been creating things since she was a child. An unfortunate accident ultimately led her to this amazing talent she has of creating robots out of every day kitchen utensils as the bending of the metal is a sort of therapy for her. She lives in Indiana, USA and although she only has her shipping priced for the States all you need to do is contact her for a shipping quote if you live outside of the USA… which I plan on doing in the near future!
You can also visit Donna on her Facebook page and see what other unique creations she comes up with.
This morning I woke up to find my Mr. and Mrs. hand stamped vintage teaspoons featured in this absolutely gorgeous treasury. I adore the colors the curator chose for this very soft and feminine collection. I invite you to click the photo and browse the wonderful selections that are featured here. Also, please visit Viktoria and Elena, the lovely curators of this fabulous treasury, at LekaArt on Etsy.
This is the view from my window as of yesterday in Ontario, Canada. Not as bad as Wednesday where the panes were so covered with ice you couldn’t even see outside! Today is a balmy spring day compared to the last few weeks! I am SOOOOOOO done with this polar vortex and would love to see some hints of spring. So, I thought I would show you this lovely azalea that has just bloomed inside my house over the past couple of weeks. I purchased this lovely plant last spring while it was already blooming and I left it outside until mid October. Now, you must understand, I DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT have a green thumb! So imagine my surprise when I saw some new flowers budding! At first, I was concerned that this might mess up it’s blooming schedule and now it won’t flower in the spring when it’s supposed to but I’ve decided that it is better to enjoy this burst of beautiful spring color while it’s so grey and boring outside!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Come on Spring!
Since it’s a brand new year I was thinking of changing up the look of my Etsy shop a bit. As it stands now, I am using a white background with lime green and chocolate raffia as a small punch of color. I wanted to introduce a fresh look but keeping with the same color scheme so I thought I would try a white and lime green patterned towel. Then I found a piece of burlap and thought that might add some rustic shabby chic flair to my shop. Now, I’m just not sure what to do. I’m leaning toward just keeping my original clean white background. What do you think? You can either comment below or join the discussion on my Facebook page. I’d really appreciate the insight!
