Friends in the hood and a mardi gras christmas

My partner in crafting, crime and kooky "visions" Steph is now in my hood and I'm stoked! It's such a nice comforting feeling to know that you have friends close by, especially when their super awesome like she is. I'm looking forward to many a wine diluted crafty sessions in the near future. Yay!

This year we decided to go with a mardi gras themed tree and I love it! It's strung with green, gold and purple beads, masks, sparkley ribbon boa and topped off with a crown of course. Coupled with some louie armstrong christmas tunes and soco egg nog the good times are here! Hap-Hap Happy Holidays all!

Mail Goodies

It's amazing the amount of joy this little yellow box can bring! I got my order in from Daskalides yesterday. They couldn't have come at a better time, these sweet little chocolates always give me just the boast I need. I was turned on to these decadent treats last spring when I was working with the lovely Belgium beauty Mieke when she was starting out her amazing shop, Mieke in Gent. As a thank you gift she sent me a box of these babies and a love affair was born! Seriously these chocolates are the best ever, and I almost died a little when I found out that you can't get them here in the states. Luckily they will ship them to you directly from Belgium and this girl is oh so glad! Speaking of that kooky cutie Mieke,(who by the way makes the cutest aprons) recently contacted me for more goods (yay!) and sent me pictures of her store in Gent and I'm blown away!

So picturesque right?! I love how indie posh it is and she has the cutest collection of handmade goods eva! My day was made when I saw my scooter rally onesies hanging in this rad ass case.

It's such a great feeling to be in such good company as Mieke carries the cutest handmade goods for kids and grown-ups! The selection of plushies is just amazing!

So if ever in Gent, make sure to check out Mieke's at Baudelostraat 23 - 9000 you won't be sorry!
