Cravings…

I’ve recently come across a few things on Etsy that are just too cute. I wish I had piles of money so I could buy them all. For now, I’ll share them with you and we can drool over them together.

GermanFest, Ja!

One of my favorite weekends of the year is upon us: GermanFest! I’m a little German girl myself, so beer and brats always remind me of me. haha. Milwaukee has a huge German population, a few sausage makers and multiple breweries; its practically Germany’s doppelganger. My parents are coming up tomorrow to join me for some serious polka and lederhosen. It doesn’t get much better than that in my book! Here are just a few German-inspired Etsy cuties.

Weekend Vintage: Afternoon Tea

It is a lazy kind of Saturday around here and I’m making up some tea as I write this. Today’s Weekend Vintage is inspired by those slow-moving days that require nothing more than a book, a quiet table and a cup of chamomile with honey. Happy weekend!
