Green Apple of My Eye by Veronica Reis

Is this an INCREDIBLE dress or WHAT!  I'm tellin' ya, Veronica Reis knows what she's doing.  This has got to be one of the most attractive and unique dresses I've ever seen.  No accessories required!  This dress is a statement all on its own.

If only I had those looooong legs like the models wearing it...... I'd definitely smash my piggy bank against the wall and head on down to vrreis and get me one!

A Pincushion is a Pincushion is a Pincushion....right?

Well.... sure, but why get a boring one when you can have beautiful works of art to look at that inspire your innermost creativity..... right?

Here's a few pincushions that I would call "works of art"

There is a tutorial for these cute ones on
right HERE (I made me a few). 
They are made with plastic bottle caps,
so it's a good recycling idea:

I found these Miniature Patchwork Pincushions
at The Purl Bee:

I'd love to see more beautiful and unusul pincushions, if you would just leave me a link to them!

Paper Acorn Boxes

These just plain ol' made me smile!  What a great way to start a windy, chilly Friday morning.  Looking at beautiful creations such as these Paper Acorn Boxes are the sort of thing that gives me energy and inspiration to go and create more of my stuff! 

And even though we are approaching Spring in the Northern hemisphere, don't forget that the Southern hemisphere (Australia, South Africa and Argentina, just to name a few) is welcoming Autumn, and these cuties would be a great addition to your Fall wedding (they are totally customizable too, so you can chose other colors to suit your theme), or as party favors (filled with assorted candy!), or to put jewelry in and give as a gift...... or even just to decorate your home with!
