front page news

well not exactly front page real news, but yesterday at 2pm a brandeye etsy item made it to the front page. i checked my activity feed on etsy this morning and noticed that i had a TON of new "hearts" on this vintage bitters bottle, as well as new "hearts" for my shop. so i headed over to heart-o-matic on craftcult and sure enough, front page. how exciting :-)

around the house

dave made a killer dinner last weekend.

homemade gnocchi with beef in a delicious sauce.

and the vintage "b" i bought for my craft room has decided to stay in the living room for the time being. it is sort of odd (or very cheesy) of me to have just a "b" in our living room, but i think it looks cool. and the trophy beside it dave won for being awesome. the award was for being the happy hour planner at work. seriously. haha.

custom baby quilt

here is a custom quilt i whipped up this week.

i really love the animal print fabric. i hope the baby does too!
