Etsy Finds: KB and Friends

KB  and friends is a beautiful shop I’ve run into lately, and that I’m excited to tell you about! It’s a mother-daughter run shop that sells all kinds of vintage, retro and whimsical digital and paper products. I’ve always been into vintage items and paper ephemera, as well as digital art. This shop really pulls these two loves together in one place! There are items for both kids and adults, with flash cards for kids to recipe books and scrapbook products. All including a cute, whimsical and vintage look.

        My favorite items are the albums/recipe books.

My favorite items are the albums/recipe books. They are embellished with flowers, ribbon, and little bits and pieces of vintage. They are so unique and am absolutely in love with these. I also really love the flash cards because they remind me of my childhood with the colorful vintage characters. The bingo cards are really neat as well; I remember playing bingo in school to help learn letters and numbers.

 I also really love the flash cards

There are so many other goodies here too, and I just really fell in love with them. The digital listings are great, since there is no waiting for mail to arrive, just print as desired (or view them from the computer). Pretty handy, right?! All in all, I think that if you love the shabby chic, vintage style, and are looking for paper and digital products, I highly suggest KB and Friends. The prices are reasonable and the products are beautiful!

Etsy Finds: Out The Box Creations

I came across the shop Out the Box Creations and it really stood out to me. I don’t have children myself, but I have 3 little nephews who I just adore, and I love looking at children’s clothes and gifts. What auntie doesn’t love to spoil their nephews or nieces! Basically, LaKesha, the owner, has a knack for style. Her items include different outfits for babies and small children. Personalized onesies, College team dresses, little booties, football team baby clothing and even a tutu set! Stuff for boys and girls alike. I love that they have seasonal items like Christmas and Thanksgiving onesies. No kids to buy for? No problem! There’s something for baby, woman and even the dog of the family! Here are a few of my favorites (click on the photos to view the items).

Love your dog? Love Valentine’s day? (but really, your dog needs a wardrobe too).

Chester: An Impromptu Camera Phone Photoshoot With a Cuddly Cat

This Christmas I went over to my brother’s house in Nova Scotia. I haven’t seen him in years and I find out that he has a new kitty named Chester. He’s still under a year old and loves cuddles. He also loves posing. He kept switching from one adorable pose to the next. Out comes the phone for some sweet shots.

All up in your face! Love it when he decides to lay on my belly and shove his head in  my face.
