I need to be brief, I’m on the fly and it’s getting late… but I could not miss Etsy Take Five Tuesday this week because there are some real gems to share. No detailed descriptions this time around boys and girls… just pure sticky sweet eye candy glowing from the screen. Here you go — my five picks for the week. I do hope that you enjoy them. The first find is a riot.. I want the lemon print AND the pink heart ‘cos Home is where the heART is!
Dear Colleen has bright and cheery stationery for spring. Gotta love the wisdom in this print, “When life hands you lemons make a gin and tonic.” A woman after my own heart.
Bella Drummer art, gift tags, and other pretty things…
Wicked Mint in Brooklyn has some wicked awesome pillows.
Gingiber prints are quirky and colorful and well, they just make me smile.
Spot any insta-faves? (images: linked to their source above)
It’s party time! Don’t you love to hear those words? I do because who doesn’t love a good party? Photography Jeremy Harwell in Atlanta (the brother of the talented artist Anne Harwell) wrote in recently to give decor8 first dibs on sharing a party he recently shot. But not just any party, but a vintage themed puppy party for his beautiful daughter planned and styled by his creative wife Karrie.
I was excited to hear about and share this vintage party because Karrie went beyond the basics and had each girl in attendance make a pillow out of recycled fabric and vintage buttons. They also made their own book out of vintage prints from the 40’s. All of the fabrics used to decorate are vintage and the sweets were all handmade. Charming, right? Have a look at these beautiful photos as they may inspire a party of your own in the future, the palette for a piece of art you plan to begin, your wedding palette, or even how you imagine decorating your craft room.
Thank you so much Jerry for contacting me and sharing this party with decor8 readers. I think it’s just adorable and super inspiring — you really captured the moment so perfectly with your gorgeous photographs! And readers don’t miss Jeremy’s portfolio — it will make your day!
Doesn’t this party bring out the little girl in us all?
Psst: Jeremy has a beautiful blog, too.

It must be all of the sunshine and blue skies here this week because I’m definitely feeling ready for spring and have been thinking a lot about what spring brings… flowers, parties, pretty dresses and ice cream cones! I have a really sweet party to share with you in a moment so watch for my post that will follow this one but I think you’ll really enjoy how well Meri Meri products (shown below) tie in to the upcoming party peek.
I adore all of details when event planning, in fact the details and finding ways to be extra creative in new ways is the most exciting part for me. That is why I love these cupcake sets from Meri Meri — they make me smile because I hope to someday have a daughter and plan such sweet events at home for her as my mother did for me. My favorite set is tweet tweet. Wouldn’t it be fun to have a blogger party and to have the tweet tweet cupcake holders and toppers to pass around as a bit of a joke about our social networks — like twitter? Ha, that would be cute. What is your favorite cupcake set?
