clean up, clean up, everybody everywhere

Does this title ring a bell? I used to dress up as Barney (as a job, not for fun) when I was a teen and they played this clean up song allll the time. Anyhoo, I am trying to clean up.

i'm so sexy...

Make your own Simpsons avatar! Everyone and their mama is doing it!

Here is the flickr group to post your results. I have to say, what a great viral marketing idea!

I have a question:

decole tape dispensers

Do you think it is okay to shop/collect things you like or do you think it is better to live a minimalist lifestyle? I think about this all the time (usually while sending alllll my money to Japan for wooden mushroom-themed objects ). I definitely don't want to be the type of person who has little dusty tchochkes all over their house- which I am, I mean QUICKLY becoming! Ack.

Naughty Naughty Pets sample sale!!

I had the honor of meeting the creator of Naughty Naughty Pets at Renegade last weekend! She told me about the sample sale she is having! How exciting, I will definitely be checking it out! I bought a bunny dish she designed last year (from Target) and I love it so much, so I can't wait to see what she has now!

Here is the info:

June 26-27
145 Hudson Street, NYC

More info HERE

Mushroom Twine Holders

This was a collaboration between my dad & I.

I designed it, he made it from scratch, then I painted it, and then he varnished it - and voilà!.

I just added these 3 to my shop.

pillow talk

I was washing my dishes and this idea popped into my head. How does the red pillow feel about Mr. Pillow laying on top of him?

I don't think he likes it.

Have you met Mr. Pillow?

I am expanding from every direction! I just bought new shoes yesterday and the size 11's fit me fine. I'm bustin' out of my clothes ...I feel like the incredible hulk! Exactly like the hulk but instead of green muscle it's pasty white flab.

My Renegade purchases

I just picked up a few small things...

mushroom necklace from Traveling Rhinos

magnets and needle holder from The Small Object which I had been eyeing for months. Everything she had was awesome as usual.

small pouch from a newly discovered Somethings Hiding in Here. Who btw had the most kick arse display in town. I wish I had taken a pic. It was minimal and beautiful.

House keychain by Timber Handmade. I would have bought everything they made, it is so great!

Renegade 07

This is my only pic from this year's Renegade! It is a new So Softies adoptive parent carrying one of my bunnies in her baby's sling. So cute!!

I want to sincerely thank everyone who stopped by and introduced themselves and also the secret agents that stopped by :D! Meeting people that I've only interacted with online is the best part of these type of events!

Look for the fantastical display items I used last year, 2 run-down looking people, well actually one, with a wrist cramp, some weird looking stuffed creatures, happy bears apparel and some top-notch stationery ;) Info at
