Tuesdays and pretty things

In my book, Tuesdays stink.
I think it is mainly because I ship orders out on Tuesdays. 
That means I am scrambling to get paintings dried, sealed, photographed, and packaged.
AND I am taking care of these cuties.

It seems that every. single. Tuesday. both of them go bonkers on me right when I need to work on boxing my orders. Jack cries and tries to eat my packaging. Charlie tries to sneak the scissors or packing tape.
It's insanity at it's finest.

Well, yesterday in the middle of all the insanity I also wanted to take a picture of my newest pretty things from aPearantly Sew. I probably took 524 shots. I hated every one of them.
My Tuesday was not getting any better.
Then I told myself to get over it.

And I took these pictures.

The new Lindsay clutch. Yes, it is named after yours truly. And I love it.
Like I kept holding it and turning it over again and again when I got it in the mail on Monday.

And my new iPod case. Yes, I love it too.

Alison's work is amazing. Ah-may-zing. Let's be honest, Alison is pretty amazing herself.
She's a good friend, with a good sense of humor, she loves food and she's tall. I mean, what more could you want in a friend?

Go admire her pretty things and treat yourself, it will make your Tuesday or Wednesday or any day of the week much better.


  1. The Lindsay clutch is LOVELY. I love the colors!! Did Mr. C get a haircut? He is looking sharp. I think your picture of the Lindsay clutch is perfect because (1) Jack, and (2) I can tell the size better because of your hand.

    Is that some sort of large Thomas the Tank in the background?

  2. Your post made me giggle ... only because I can relate. Oh and I love your new pretties. I'll have to go visit her shop. ;-) Happy Wed-nes-day!
