nesting doll tattoos

how great is this tattoo idea (altho these "tattoos" above were actually created with a felt-tip marker)? such a cool tat for brave (and like-minded, of course) siblings or a family! y'all know i love my matryoshkas.

chicago art prints

marty and i were at a wedding this past weekend in chicago. initially i was at a loss about what to get the bride and groom* until i stumbled upon this adorable etsy shop. hopefully the couple is honeymooning and won't be reading this post, since we ended up choosing these heart-shaped prints of chicago's map and flag. aren't they adorable? 

*sidenote: when wedding gift shopping, instead of buying egg slicers and KitchenAid mixers, i usually prefer to get ideas of the couple's style from their registries and then choose a piece of artwork i think will suit their tastes - this usually ends up being more memorable for them and fun for me! wedding etiquette blasphemy, i know, but i am my father's daughter, after all.

backyard scrabble

this is quite possibly the coolest idea i've ever seen. it blows my super scrabble board (a christmas gift from marty from a few years ago) out of the water!
