Earth Greetingsdesign environmentally friendly, Australian made 100% post-consumer recycled greeting cards, wrapping paper, party invitations & sustainable stationery. This wrapping paper they have caught my eye:
It's so cute - the art is beautiful! Imagine framing one, two, or more of these fun creatures on a wall. I'm thinking white Ikea frames and a baby room...or bathroom..............or kitchen.
People always want to know where I find my props. I find them all over. ALL over. Garage sales, thrift shops, Target, Meijer, and the list goes on and on. The last shopping adventure was on my way to the West side to visit my sister. Luckily the boys took the ride over with Papa and Abuela the night before so I had the freedom to get off any exit along the way, jump in and out of stores, and not worry about bottles, naps, and diapers holding me back (AMAZING feeling).

So cute with it's lace umbrella! Imagine all the cute photos :)

Neat old TV
Can you imagine the house that went with this lamp?
No shortage of Christmas knick knacks.
and I leave you with this and please note it was more disturbing in person:
