Grand Giveaways: Cocosheaven & Lenny Mud.

Let me preface this with saying that I would never write about anything that I didn't feel was properly amazing.  But when I got the very kind gift of a Cocosheaven canvas tote bag in the mail last week, I was floored.  What I thought I was already a stunning item was even more beautiful in person.  GOODNESS ME.

And in agreement was our gorgeous winner, Jen Allanson of Don't Cry Shop Girl, who was beyond adorable and gave us a shout out on Instagram with the picture below.  The very kind JK from Cocosheaven sent us these orange ombre beauties, which are proving to be the perfect summer tote!  See the entire collection at Cocosheaven here.

Well, hello, my little cabbages.  I know Etsy Monday has been missing for the past few weeks but we are back in FULL force!

Now, if you don't know me too well, you may not know that I lived in London for almost 8 years.  While in London, along with a bit of practice, I learned to love a good cup of tea.  Admittedly, I have not yet mastered the art of brewing and properly making a cup that won't get me laughed at by my English peers but baby steps.  You may also not know that I have the best/worst taste in music ever.  And don't you start judging me.  I just admit to liking the things some people rock out to in secret.  Long story short, when I decided to move back to the States to go to school, my dear friend Beaver (yes) sent me a school supply package which included a nice supply of pencils and a mug to help with the brews I would be making for late night study sessions.  BUT it wasn't just ANY mug.  It was LIONEL RICHIE.  From Lenny Mud.  So...love affair commence.

What's better to enjoy a lovely cup of tea with than a badass mug?  Exactly.  Lenny is the artist's studio cat...who is apparently as good at breaking ceramics as the artist is at making them.  I love this sense of humor.  It's obvious, it doesn't apologize for itself and it can't help but make you grin.
