Friends, Fun, & Sweet Ideas

On Saturday my friend Niki, who I met through blogging, came to town for the Cotton Bowl.  She is from Little Rock.  It was so good to see her and meet her hubby!  They are the sweetest couple and I hope they come back to see us soon!  Niki and I share a love for paper stores, cupcakes, and fun crafting :-)

Yummy cupcakes at The Cupcakery
I wanted to take Niki to one of my favorite stores called The Brownstone.  I always say it reminds me of an Etsy on land instead of online.  This place is full of little booths and shops with some of the cutest ideas.

I got this glittery LOVE sign....and guess what I love???  Ha ha!
I know I am CRAZY.
Adore these metal yard stakes

I want one of these big metal candles to put in the yard for birthdays.  How cute!
Connor found some mini school buses and he's been OBSESSED with them.  I think it's because the bus fits perfectly in his little hand.  He won't sleep without this thing!\
A cute little shop called Vella Nest

Not your average noodles

I wish I knew how to make this paper heart shadow box, but I have no idea how they made this?

Pretty cross candles

He didn't stay in the stroller for very long....
And these were probably one of our favorite things.  It's paper lanterns with cellophane around them and they look like candy!  Love this idea!!!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
