big girl bedroom + new products + a giveaway!

i got my big girl's "big-girl-bedding" this weekend. 
oh my goodness, i could not be more in love with a duvet cover!

i had originally planned on this whole scheme, if you remember?
but when i got to the store and they didn't have it in stock, i fell in love with this instead:

and here's the bed i plan to get. i love how girly the white, scrolly wrought iron is:
[found here]
and this mirror? painted in one of those colors below, if i'm brave:


these lime green curtains? not sure if i want to do lime green,
but they do match the bedding perfectly:
i also love this look with lots of frames in different colors, sizes, shapes, etc.
i'd fill them with photos and prints and other things, but i love the look.
at first i complained that i can never find cute frames
but the truth is, they're everywhere. you just have to keep your eyes peeled.
i've already picked up a few cute ones at goodwill that just need to be painted!

okay, switching gears...

i also wanted to share some cute new products that are available in the shop
i had a few nights free last week so i got to work turning some ideas into reality, 
and i LOVE how everything turned out. 
way cuter than i envisioned in my head, which is always awesome.

this "you are my sunshine" 6 inch hoop would be cute for boys' or girls' rooms, 
playrooms, or any other wall in the house.
don't you love it? i totally do.

and here are three more styles, each 5 inches.
the lovely felt roses in the "blossom" design can be made in virtually any color
and don't you think the "all is well" design is perfect for christmas? 
[shauna requested that phrase and i think it's perfect, so that's what i'm calling it for now]
other colors are available for "all is well" and "bloom", though choices are limited.

if you head over to sarah's blog right now you'll find a fun little giveaway 
for a $30 shop credit! that would be enough to snag one of these lovely hoops, 
or maybe my last available wreathor a few prints
everything is ready-to-ship, including hair accessories! head over and enter!

you know what's also fun? i logged in to pinterest to find this print
pinned by censtsational girl. that made me happy :)
