If I Had Unlimited Funds: February 17th

I have spent so much time stuck on the couch or in bed with one ridiculous cold after another. I can not wait until this winter is over! Normally I’m all about the cold. I love bundling up and wearing layers. If I could walk around with a quilt wrapped around me all day every day, I would!

This down time has caused me to internet window shop way more than usual. So after three months of adding things to pinterest and numerous wish list and decided to do another one of these posts. So, If I Had Unlimited Funds i’d totally buy…

unlimitedfunds_021714_0011One of a Kind Eames RKR by cast + crew (I’m not normally into the color red, but lately I have been drawn to it. Is that weird?)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0022Sherlock Print by Tillieke (How amazing would this look on the wall!? I NEED it) /// 3Mini Quote – Douglas Adams by Britt Wilson (One of my favorite quotes by my favorite author!)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0034 - Marva RX Glasses by Warby Parker (I’ve been on the rx glasses kick. I needed a new pair and have tried on sooooo many in the past few months. I finally found a pair of dark red ray bans that were perfect. I know that dark red doesn’t go with everything so I’m now on the search for a second, inexpensive pair for the days I’m not into mismatching. which isn’t too many days)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0045Nerd Art Print by Little Atae

unlimitedfunds_021714_0056Dodecahedron Mobile by submicrocosm (my new love of paper and my old love of anything geometric all in one!) /// 7Paper Unicorn by Paperwolf (how awesome is this?!?! They also make other animals and they are all just as gorgeous!)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0068Metal Wall Shelf by Eina (I love enameled metal and the color teal, so this little shelf is perfect! It comes in other colors too.)

unlimitedfunds_021714_0079I Work Out, Just Kidding I Watch Netflix Tank by Active Apparel (ha, way too true) /// 10  - Shimmer Authentic Vans (these are so neat! It’s like my tomboy side and my newly aquired girly side collaborated and made a pair of shoes!!!!)

So you’ve seen a tiny peek into my window shopping world, so now I can ask…

Are there any shops you think I’d really like? Please share!!!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: November 28th

I know it’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S., but our plans aren’t really too big this year. We will be doing a full on dinner with the in laws on Sunday. So today we decided to do a dinner theater type thing with friends. Only instead of a play, it will be the new movie Frozen! I’m excited.

But now onto the virtual window shopping. If I had unlimited funds to buy myself anything online right now, I’d buy…

unlimitedfunds_112813_0011Handmade Trestle Table by Seven Hands High (I don’t really have a perfect place for this, I just think its gorgeous!)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0022Smile Banner Brooch by B.Goods /// 3It’s Just a Phase Coaster Set by Common Rebels (I own many sets by these awesome folks, and I truly feel like I need more!)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0034Diamond Himmeli Light Pendant by Panselinos (this lamp is just so amazing, I think it would look great in any room of my house! Well except the morning room, there’s already a geometric pendant in there)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0045 – ANYTHING by Red Raven Studios! (I had the pleasure of meeting these super sweet makers when I did Crafty Bastards this year. Everything is absolutely gorgeous. I want it all!)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0056 – Specs Shelf by Okulo (I NEED one of these, I have accidentally accumulated glasses. For the first time in my life actually. I guess there are just so many cute glasses out there now! RX and sunglasses!!!) /// 7Clueless Watercolour Portrait by Oh Gosh, Cindy! (All of this shoppes portraits are so great! My second favorite was the Zooey Deschanel print “come on bangs, you sons of bitches!” I feel her pain)



8The Forest Edge & The Camp Out both by Cricket Press (I’d actually love to own anything they make! It’s all so spooky AND sweet.)

unlimitedfunds_112813_0079Lost & Found Screenprinted Poster by West Cermak (I love the simplicity with a little texture added in. I think this is a perfect print for gallery walls that are full of busy prints, and need something bold)

unlimitedfunds_112813_00810Hand printed String Cuff Bracelet & 11Hand Printed “Southwest” Pillow both by thief and bandit (This is yet another shop where I just love it ALL!)

I forgot just how much I loved doing these post. Expect more again soon!!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: 31st Birthday Edition

My 31st birthday is coming up in a few days! I have already received an early birthday gift from my husband, and it was pretty awesome! Its not like I need more, but If I Had Unlimited Funds, in the form of birthday gift cards or something, I’d buy…

unlimitedfunds_082313_0011Swedish Hasbeens Women’s Lacy Platform Sandal (or any of the designs similar to this! I notice I walk comfortably in the mid heel height clogs, and I really want a pair of T-strap shoes!)

unlimitedfunds_082313_0022H&M Decorative Plates from their new Home Line!! (I want all three above! I imagine they would look great on my dining room plate wall. They are technically in my price range since they are only $4 a plate, but I’m afraid if I try to purchase just a few of the new home items, I may want even more!! example below…)


3 – Deer Head Wall Decoration from H&M’s new Kids Decor line (um, its a faux mounted deer head, of course I want it! It would look great with my dozen other faux deer pieces) /// 4Doctor Who Matt Smith Portrait by Lizustration (Do I need to even explain why I want this one? haha)

unlimitedfunds_082313_0045HUSKYLOCK s21 Serger/Overlock Machine (I have been dreaming about making an entire new wardrobe for myself, and I feel like this machine would make everything last longer and look more professional! It’s a serger with a coverstitch option!!! Since I finally bought a new sewing machine, this is the next thing I’m saving up for.)

unlimitedfunds_082313_0056LAPPLJUNG RUTA Rug by IKEA (I keep seeing the square version of this all over the internets, and even though it’s everywhere I still wanted it for my morning room. Well I went to go get the photo for the square one when I saw the rectangle one completely in beige and black! I squealed and called my husband!! It’s even more perfect and fits the space way better!! IT WILL BE MINE! SOON!) /// 7STRANDMON Wing Chair by IKEA (We need more seating in our living room for upcoming holidays and parties. This chair is perfect b/c it accommodates my tall husband AND fits our current decor)

unlimitedfunds_082313_0068Seize the Daytime Party Dress by Dear Creatures on Modcloth /// 9Foxtail & Fern Dress also found on Modcloth (these lovelies have been hanging in my shopping cart for awhile. It’s been hard justifying dress purchases when I can just make one for half the price!)

unlimitedfunds_082313_00710 & 11 – Anything from the Two String Jane Shop! (I love the simple, yet bold, designs and all the comfy shapes! I especially want the above two, they would fit perfectly into my wardrobe. Which apparently will have a lot of navy and rust if I keep finding pieces like the four above!! Not normally my “goto colors”)

The best part about this list is I actually plan on purchasing each piece for myself eventually. I’ve been working really hard lately and almost every penny has gone back into the business. I am going to start budgeting better so I can buy myself something nice every so often, and this will be my shopping list!!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: August 1st

I have pretty much only had fabric and sewing machines on my mind lately, so I haven’t really done a lot of internet window shopping. A lot being the magic word, I have done a little!!

So If I had unlimited funds (after I buy a new sewing machine) then I would totally buy…

unlimitedfunds_073013_0011 & 2Recluse T Shirt & Procrastinate Felt Pennant both by Stay Home Club! (I have been seeing a bunch of this companies products all over the internets lately and once I finally looked them up I was sold. I want it ALL).

unlimitedfunds_073013_0023Rose Gold Circle Wood Veneer Sunglasses by Tumbleweeds Handcraft (If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, then you know just how much I adore all of Tumbleweeds Handcrafts glasses. I now have two pairs myself, but of course I want more. These new ones are just too neat!!)

unlimitedfunds_073013_0034 – Clementine Large Lampshade by Random Lights /// 5Oversized Handmade Reclaimed Wooden OK Sign by Ruby Rhino (I love both of the pieces for the same reason! They are wood and they have a lot of personality)

unlimitedfunds_073013_0046Rock Coral Earrings by Joanna Rutter (These are absolutely perfect for me! They have just the right amount of personality AND they’ll actually stay in my ears! My ears use to be stretched and ever since having CT I’ve let them shrink. Well now its hard to get any earrings that aren’t plugs to stay in properly. I think a design like this would work just right!)

unlimitedfunds_073013_0057Fantasy Dreamed Blue Manor Poster by Melle Marcel /// 8Gingerbread Victorian House Kit by Journey Productions

unlimitedfunds_073013_0069Glass house by Boxwood (what can I say, I just love houses!!)

So yeah, as you can see I haven’t been completely slacking when it comes to roaming the internets. I forgot how much I loved putting these posts together!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: Big Bags

It was until I started working on this post did I realize I have a “type” when it comes to bags! I didn’t even know it until I saw all the bags I liked together on one screen. It was crazy to me. I always thought I had a wide range of taste in bags. Then I looked over at my favorite purse, and realized it too falls into this “type” (It’s a forest green Fossil satchel). Ha.

Anyway, If I had unlimited funds to buy any and all the bags I like, I’d buy…

1 & 2Organic Cotton Weekend Bag by Jenna Rose Handmade (These bags are all so nice! I’m seriously trying to figure out which one would work for me. I think they’d be great to carry my camera and a few other odds and ends!)

3Garrison Bag by Winter Session (I really love the size and shape of this bag! Plus it has a longer shoulder strap, which is super useful when chasing a toddler)

4Unisex Canvas Backpack  /// 5UniSex Olive Green Canvas Messenger both bags are by Bagy Bags (These look like super useful bags! The one on the left especially. I’ve been thinking a backpack type bag may actually work really for me. I like wearing backpacks actually)

6ZIP TOTE – rain/waxed by bookhou (I have loved their bags since the first time I saw one! They are awesome!! Simple but interesting at the same time. Plus it looks like this one could hold my camera too!)

7NO 2 Backpack in Tobacco by Ada Black Jack (seriously, another super useful looking bag!! When I get the funds to actually buy a new bag, I’m going to have serious issues picking just one!) /// 8Screen Printed Tote Bag – Broken Arrows by Slide Sideways (This bag is just too cute! Look at all those little arrows!! and it looks like a great size for a camera too!)

As you may be able to tell, I’m in need of a bag that I can use as my everyday purse, but also use to hold my camera in it’s case. I really want to take more pictures out and about, but my camera is just so bulky, and my purses are just so small. It’s not a good mix. I’m hoping to get together some funds and pick out one or two of these bags (which is going to be hard), or maybe even one I don’t know about yet!! Any other suggestions?

Oh and friendly reminder! make sure to check out Monday’s post where you can win a Blue Garden necklace, just by telling me your favorite color combo!

If I Had Unlimited Funds: April 29th

I’ve had a bit more down time lately, which usually means I’m spending way too much time “window shopping” the internets. Seriously, my Etsy favorites is getting a bit out of control. I just love looking at THINGS.

So If I had unlimited funds to buy all the things I like to look at, I’d buy…

1Love You Night Light by Owly Shaddow Puppets (I have a few of their shadow puppets, and I’m now eyeing up all their nightlights and paper goods. All of it is SO CUTE!)

2Faceted Emerald Ring / 199 Carat Series by Gemagenta (I just think this ring is so pretty! I’m not a diamond girl, but I do love the shape of them) /// 3Silver Constellation Crown by Giant Dwarf (I have been wanting a head piece by Sue since she started making the felt flower ones YEARS ago! I just never felt like I was girly enough to wear one. Like I would feel fake, or silly. Now I know that was super crazy, and I WILL get one of these amazing pieces finally!!!)

4Fox Dress by Gracie Chai (This beyond adorable dress is HANDMADE and HAND PRINTED! Not screen printed. Hand stamped! Each fox head was done separately, layer by layer. It’s amazing! The designer even shares the process on her blog. She’s my new favorite!)

5Shelter Print by Jeremy Miranda (Every single piece of art in this shop is amazing! I’m normally a simple screen printed art type of girl, but I just can’t get over how interesting these prints are!) /// 6Florescent Green Geometric Linen T-Rex Pillow by Panacea By Jade (OK, it’s a geometric dinosaur pillow, why wouldn’t I want one of these?!?)

7The ‘Brandy Snap’ Peter Pan Collar Dress by Isabel Knowles (These handmade dresses are just too cute! Plus they are tailor made to your exact measurements, so it’s a perfect fitting dress)

8Wooden desk lamp in grey and yellow lime by Ellens Alley (this lamp is EXACTLY what I have been looking for! I think a set of them would look amazing in our bedroom) /// 9Washi Tape Pillow Cover by Mrs Eliot Books

10Thin Pointed Violet Stackable Ring by Anja Guggenheim (This ring isn’t just sparkly and cute, it’s also a SELF DEFENSE WEAPON! Crazy right? I found this shop late at night while searching for geometric rings. I didn’t realize what the ring was at first, but once I read the description I was in love. This isn’t the only design with a double purpose! ALL of the designs in the shop can be used for self defense. I seriously think every girl I know should own one of these, or at least the Unicorn Horn!)

So, completely off topic… My endoscopy is tomorrow!! Which means after all the gluten is out of my system I will hopefully be back to my normal self. Sewing, sculpting, casting, working out, and baking self. I think I’m too excited for this!! I have stacks of supplies just waiting to be used.
