Yeah, remember my feeble attempt at a St Patrick's Day centerpiece. Over at www.thelittleroundtable.com Candy has raised it to an art form. Here are several examples just for Easter. And yes that is her real kitchen. As I look over at my table in real time, there is a printer, salt and pepper shakers and an orange cat. Sigh . . . . and I don't mean a cute little ceramic cat.
I love reading foreign blogs with Google translations. I found this Finnish site at www.timeoftheaquarius.com

I found this oh so funny map at www.etsy.com at Haley for Etsy's shop. I love the obnoxious stereotypes! I was born in historical landmarks and have lived in life of the party, yes sir and yes ma'am, obesity epidemic, hot and drunk, old peepers, and last but not least, drunk lake people. Where have you lived?

I have been really attracted to vintage Scandinavian dishware. I am particularly smitten with Bersa by Stig Lindberg. Recently I bid on a couple of pieces on Ebay and they went for crazy prices. I found the cup and saucer at www.huset-shop.com and bought it! Isn't it sweet?
And I bought this plate too.
Now I am coveting this pitcher from www.wists.com
And this bowl from www.petpeoplespace.com
And this print from Handz' shop at www.etsy.com

I love Mallory over at www.wherethelovelythingsare.com and now she has a Tumblr blog called Wear Color. She posts pretty pictures of bright clothes. I love the vibrancy. Northern Michigan does three seasons very well, but Spring is brown and drab and still cold. I think that's why I am craving color. Check her out at www.wearcolor.tumblr.com Enjoy!!

I found this site awhile back. There is a very cool blog, but the best part is an online magazine. the latest issue has 372 pages!! It has beautiful children's clothing, toys and furniture for starters. It is so pretty to look at. Go to www.babiekinsmag.com and enjoy!

Go to www.spoonflower.com immediately! This is a site where you can create your own fabric and if you can't do that, you can buy fabric that others have created. There are hundreds to choose from!! You also have a choice of fabrics to quilt, make clothing or upholster. It is a little spendy, but you will never see your creation anywhere else. So in true Wrinkly fashion, I will buy and most likely never make. I am a certified collector of fabric. Well at least I recognize my addictions.

We spent Tuesday at The Navy Pier. It was our best weather day - sunny and warmish. The last time I was there was in the summer and it was packed. This time around it was as if we had it all to ourselves. No lines no waiting. What fun! M and Amber went through the fun house and rode the enormous Ferris Wheel. Beansie and I strolled around and watched.
There is the most beautiful Stained Glass Museum at the Pier. I probably took way too many pictures. I couldn't help myself. Many of them came from old churches, homes and office buildings in the Chicago area.
