Come visit me at Market Day!

If you're in or around Des Moines, Iowa this weekend, I suggest you drop any and all current plans and stop by Market Day! ;)

Market Day is a monthly indie fair featuring art, vintage, found items, and handmade goods. The event is indoors, free to attend, and coincides with the downtown Des Moines Farmers' Market.

When: Saturday, October 30th, 9:00am - 2:00pm
Where: Ahern-Pershing Warehouse, 300 SW 5th Street, Des Moines, IA

There's street parking, several lots nearby, and even a big 'ol bike rack! OOOH, and FOOD! Get your snack on with gourmet cupcakes from DarbyCakes and a booth full of breakfast burritos. YUM.

For more info, visit:

Hope to see you there!

sweet dreams

This might be my absolute favorite Etsy treasury, EVER! I'm pretty sure my heart skipped a beat when I first laid eyes on all those minty greens and soft blues. I don't know what it is, but ever since I was teeny tiny I have LOVED soft colors such as these. "Seafoam Green" was the name of my favorite pastel marker...I'd beg my mom to buy the whole pack, just so I could have that one. ;)

Special thanks to Natalie for including The First Day in such a lovely collection! I will most certainly have sweet dreams tonight because of you.
