I have to say I think I did a pretty good job. The tin foil joint looking things are corn on the cob ready to go on the grill. The opened tin foil thing is a veggie pack. It was filled with sliced mushrooms, red potatoes, green beans, a diced clove of garlic, a shallot, toss in some butter and some salt and pepper. Behold, you have a REALLY FREAKIN GOOD side dish to BBQ chicken.
Of course the flowers next to the bouquet he bought me last week.

This lovely lady is from a seller I have had the pleasure of buying from Trunkofprettys. If you are looking for strawberries then you have to at least take a peek at the one and only Strawberry Shortcake.

To the untrained eye that is a grouping of things that seem totally unrelated and they are....the only common thread is that I had to remove them all from my purse to photograph them on my desk at work. Things are slow here. I have a sneaking suspicion that I may be in line at the unemployment office soon. Until I actually get that news officially I am in the office and waiting for something to happen. In the meantime I have to find ways to entertain myself. The book is next month's book club selection. I'm on page 130 and I would recommend My Sister's Keeper to anyone who is looking for a quick read. The fabric, needles and the orange pancake thing are supplies to make fabric yo-yos. I have posted about these before and this is what I am going for here:

So to honor the one and only piece of clothing that is appropriate in all social situations I am starting a Cardigan of the Day post to my blog. I am not committing to posting about a cardigan every day but I will post about a cardigan whenever the mood strikes that particular day.
So without further adieu here is your first cardigan today brought to us from the always appropriate J. Crew.

Slightly deflated but not completely defeated she made the purchase online from ALDO's website. She waited and waited for two days until her beloved shoes arrived via UPS Ground. To her total shock and complete dismay the shoes were incredibly small and uncomfortable. Her size was indeed printed on the bottom of the shoe and to her knowledge her feet had not grown over night.
For our heroine this was a sad sad day indeed. To add insult to injury she must pay for return shipping to the tune of $11 as ALDO will not accept an in store refund due to her paying for the shoes via Paypal.
Goodbye lovely shoes. It was nice knowing ya!
Moral of the store is that ALDO sucks and that Italian Sizing is not consistent. Just because you are a 40 in one designer does not mean that you are a 40 in every designer.

How adorable is this couple with their heart shaped faces. From Etsy seller The Cupcake Girls.
The whimsy of this little bird pin would punch up a simple jeans and cardigan outfit. From Siiri's Etsy shop.
This is a pin cushion from Smarmypants shop. I can personally vouch for the quality and the absolute cuteness of this particular item. I bought a pin cushion from this seller at Christmas and could not believe how absolutely adorable this is in person.
Cute little addition to any key ring from absolutefelt's shop.
Cute little necklaces from mynta. No Valentines Day Gift Guide would be complete without jewelry right.

Tomorrow I may have some photos of my craft space but we'll see how motivated I get.

Ryan is moving into my 650 square feet of space. Two people and their stuff occupying my (soon to be our) apartment calls for some serious organization. I have devised a plan of attack. I will tackle one area of the space at a time. The biggest area of concern is my dining area. It does double duty. It serves as a place for Ryan and I to eat dinner but also as a space for my crafting and craft supplies. It is out in the open so it must be attractive to the eye and organized for easy use.
Below are images that have been surfing through my mind.
This is also on Flickr from nestdecorating's photostream. I have a feeling that my space will end up similar to this. I am okay with that. This is the look of creativity and a happy crafter/sewer/jewelry maker.

Technically these are not black but there were too cute to not mention. They are not the most affordable option. These are from J. Crew and the good thing about J. Crew is that they have sales regularly.
