Etsy Finds + Butterfly Room...

A couple of weeks ago, I came across The Singapore House while cruising around on the internet( come to think of it I think it was Apartment Therapy).  Wow - I love the statement made by their Butterfly Room. From what I read - they have over 600 butterflies displayed..Oh how I would love to visit - too bad it is in Adelaide, Australia and not practical for a date with the mister this weekend.

This coolness inspired me to check out cool butterfly items I could score from etsy.

Check them out:

Real Monarch Butterfly Display from BugUnderGlass

Vintage Butterfly Brooch from PrimitivePinCushion

Vintage Butterscotch Bakelite Butterfly Necklace from twojs
Vintage Sequined Top from RamblinVintage
Butterfly Print on Dictionary Page from FauxKiss

I love: Pioneer Woman's table

                                                           originally uploaded by Nothing But Bonfires.
I love love this table.. Do you know the Pioneer Woman? If not you are missing out on the best recipes ever. I always get rave reviews on all her recipes... You must stop what you are doing and make her cinnamon rolls pronto.

oh yeah - getting back to this table... I love it and I love that Holly Burns aka Nothing but Bonfires(my favorite blogger for years) took this photo.  My two favorite internet people that do not know me both in the same post. How's that for fun?

paper route....

Cody plays this video in the mornings when we are getting ready for work... I love it.

The SerialBox Presents: PAPER ROUTE from The Serial Box on Vimeo.

Oh and in case you didn't know - we played Paper Route at our wedding... not this song.

We had our sisters (wedding party) walk into to ending of "Dance on Our Graves"

This video plays the ending part of the song only (it is a long song).  The girls started walking in at about 53 sec on the song below and there was no Edward Scissorhands at our wedding.

Alley's Grocery...

Alley's Grocery, originally uploaded by Jacob...K.

I found this photo on flickr today. This is a small grocery store that my great-grandfather built in 1925. There was an apartment above that my granny lived in as a child.

The store is located in Lakemont, GA and was sold a couple of years ago to someone outside the family for thr first time.. It is now called Annie's at Alley's.... My mother wants to take my cutey niece Annie to have her photo made there... I think it is a splendid idea.

ikea kitties....

Iinteresting - just read here that 100 cats were let loose in IKEA. Weird.

Check it out - but does it seem strange that they are all white cats and where did these cats tinkle?

my mister....

He cracks me up wearing this vintage owl necklace.

these are cute...

I really want a pair of Tom's.... I love that they give a pair of shoes to a needy child each time you buy a pair.

I think these Gold ones are cute!

Do you have a pair? Do you love them?

UPDATE:: My sweet mister bought me the gold glitter Tom's for my birthday and I love them and him.

It is awesome when old becomes new.

I love vintage signs - which are quickly becoming extinct. This is a cool sign right from our neck of the woods.

photo booth

Cody and I have been married since May 2010 - I can't wait to show you more photos - but here is a glimpse of some of the photo booth strips - We didn't have a enclosed photo booth - Cody did something technical to set it up with his Mac, a big silver usb button, a camera, and a monitor. We just used a shower curtain as our backdrop and I made the mustaches.

Cody testing it out before the wedding

The wedding party - Our Brothers and Sisters

My cutey 10yr old brother-in-law
We work with these guys.

This weirdo we know.

Cody's Brother Cory and his wife Ashley
We loaded the strips to our the internets - so our guest could view and download them.
It was a blast and I definitely recommend it -
