This week Electrolux asked me to talk about my dream kitchen. No problem! With the amount of time we spend in the kitchen, it’s a great space to splurge a little on some luxury touches. Re-doing the kitchen is on our long list of things to do in our 1870′s era home. Our current kitchen isn’t big enough for my dream kitchen, but hopefully our next house will have the space build in some of these ideas.
I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective, and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.
We’re in the middle of a busy week. But I wanted to take a moment to share a few things that made me pause between walking the dogs and getting the yard in shape.

Don’t forget to enter the big Spring Cleaning Giveaway before the 4th! This is one of the best prizes yet on the blog. I can’t wait to select a winner.
Metallic may be by favorite “color”. And the best place to find metallic paper goods and pretty things is Inkkit. Confetti, washi tape, envelopes, twig pencils, glitter stickers and so much more. What I wouldn’t give to spend an hour wrapping pretty packages in their studio.

If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen that recently CafePress helped me put together a little merchandise shop featuring ‘Deer’ Prudence, my little mascot. CafePress is great. There are a ton of pre-designed items for sale from designers all over the world, AND you can slap your own logo or design on hundreds of items. It’s easy to design your own t shirt or put your logo on a coffee mug or pajamas! And the great part is, you can order 100 pieces or just 1! I’m really in love with this stacking mug set and this canvas lunch tote.
Stick around for a CafePress Giveaway coming soon to Lost & Fawned. Until then, head over to CafePress and give it a try! The branding possibilities are practically infinite!
It’s officially spring… … …. But it’s still snowing here in Ohio. I’m waiting for green and gardening and sun on my shoulders. We have been planning our summer garden over dinner and in the car, but I wish I was out there prepping the beds already.
While we wait for spring to stop teasing us, how about some springy picks…
This week’s Covet is Quiet Tiger by becausemaybe, a little shop by graphic designer Nellie Le. What started as a knitwear shop is now growing to be a design and paper goods collection. I can’t wait to see what Nellie has up here sleeve this summer as the shop continues to develop. She’s currently offering 15% off with the discount code HELLOSPRING2013 through the end of the month.
You know I love Fab. It’s my favorite flash sale style site. Right now they are having an outlet sale to clear out some old favorites and make room for new sales. That means up to 70% off on beautifully designed products. Not a member? No problem! Use this link to join and get instant access to the outlet sale and more! All of the items featured above are currently for sale on Fab and are still available in limited quantities. See and purchase my Fab Picks and more at Fab.
With quilting madness happening in my studio, I’m burning through my fabric collection pretty fast. That only means one thing… fabric shopping! In my opinion, fabric shopping is more dangerous than shoe shopping. Those $3 fat quarters can really start adding up once you start throwing them in your digital shopping cart.
The kid in me loves Japanese and illustrative patterned fabrics. Jared bought a bunch of fat quarters for christmas a few years ago which went into my first quilt. With that supply depleted, I have been shopping around to replenish my stock. I thought I would share some of my favorites today.

We are big tea drinkers in our house. I love fruity teas, herbal teas, a good black tea, any tea. I have been a Tazo drinker for awhile, so when I got the chance to affiliate with Tazo I jumped at the chance. I love their teas, but I had no idea that their online shop had so many beautiful gifts. Between their selection of drinkwear, accessories, tea enhancers and of course artisan teas, it would be so easy to put together a lovely care package for tea lover.
123 is back. We can’t stop listening to this album. Of Monsters & Men is yet another reason to love Iceland. Rounding out the group is rose gold and upcycled mail sacks. What’s not to love?
