linky loves for the week

Been reading some fun things this week in the blog world, and just thought I'd share the goodness!

I'm inspired - it's been years since I've had a Pop Tart. Why not try these ones?

A great post about how to find a good printing press - I love letterpress!

Such a beautiful house and what a cute baby and momma! Utterly adorable.

My husband is such a gamer and his influence on me is showing with the hilarity of this little guy. Bwaaaaahhhh!

I love the desert, and I love summer parties. These are oh-so-lovely and simple ideas for a summer soiree! I cannot wait for grillin' and chillin' season.

Mmmm can't wait for more online goodies next week. Share your links if you have any intriguing ones!

a little soundtrack: something to say

I recently went to a Starfield concert with some friends, and was truly touched by this song called "Something to Say." It was a heartfelt moment, very real and honest. A song about struggling with faith -- and though right now I don't feel this way, it made me think of many people who do, and how some give up on their struggles because they don't want to ask the questions or find the answers. Press on, press on.

Here is a clip of the professional recording.

walk all over me + crisp white

We've been very busy spending the last 2 weeks getting our condo ready to list on the market and now it's up! I'm a bit sad, but also happy that we did it! To put some finishing touches on the house, I made some quick runs to Marshalls and TJ Maxx Home Goods for some accessories and other fun home decor items. I bought this cherry blossom coir doormat from Cost Plus World Market - even though I don't like coir! It sheds too easily. Does anyone have suggestions for cute alternatives? This one will do for now with it's cute simple blooms, but I am dreading the little pieces that are going to come off of it and litter my front porch!

And then I bought this adorable striped bath mat from Marshalls for $10 - with all the colors of our bathroom in it! Chocolate brown, seafoam green, bright white, and light turquoise with a pop of bright green. Super cute. I was on a mission for rugs, I think.

And to top it all off I bit the bullet and bought a great king sheet set for $30 in white -- which I was always hesitant to purchase for fear that it would get dirty, but they look crisp and clean. For the future, I will now always invest in some classic white sheets! I think my hesitancy stemmed from the advice my mother gave about not buying clothes, sheets or towels in white ...

We're waiting to see if anyone will bid on our place in this market, but I really do love our cozy home and will be sad to part with it. We'll see what happens!

toting cuteness

I love these silly little tote bags with Bubi Au Yeung's Treeson character on them, they are simply adorable! And let's not even mention the nerdy glasses tote. It is just too cute for words. I'd love to lug that to the library with me! They're just $13.95 each at Crazylabel.
