Why Macy*s rocks...

Kiwi


Macy*s rock because, sometimes they have things that you want for 1/2 price. You may recognize Kiwi from my sidebar, he's was on my WisT for quite awhile. Usually, I would just buy the cheapest tea kettle I could find at Target. But, I was waiting for Dave to come pick me up after work and the lime green teapot was screaming, "BUY ME!!!!". It didn't help that I got my tax return this week. Don't you love how you feel rich for a few days? I'm pretty much in love with my new lime green kitchen accesory.





Ugly Kitty

I decided to make a tiny felt cat from the new issue of Craft:. The pattern and idea are from Aranzi Aronzo's "Cute Book", which was just translated to english. They make a bunch of really cute lil' felt animals. I guess I don't. It's my fault, really. I didn't trace the pieces (or cut them well). I changed the eyes, too. I didn't have any white felt and I was just killing time, anyway. I know it's ugly, but sort of in a cute way? maybe?

One day I saw the LeCreuset tea kettle in Sur La Table for it's full price and scoffed. But what has happened now? I too kept buying the cheapest tea kettle @ Target and after a few months or so they kept breaking! We've now gone through like 4 $20 tea kettles in a year and a half. Even the full price Le Creuset would have been cheaper! And those things are made so sturdy it will probably last you your lifetime. You have every right to be totally psyched over that purchase. Congrats!

So cute! BTW, the Cute Book is awesome. The bf was going to get me that for my bday, but he got me Happy Hooker instead. Plus, that issue of Craft is so freaking cool.

ok, as i was panting over The Lime, i scrolled down and Kitty was SO cute she made me SQUEEEK out loud. friggin out loud, i tell ya.

reminded me a little of this stuff (except Kitty's not felty burnt toast or donut or carrot or used kleenex, hey, there's even a brain), you kind of have to see the uber-cuteness for yourself, i was DYING:

Le Creuset is such an amazing brand, and yours is so cute! I'm jealous. It definitely pays to get a good tea kettle, they just rust and suck if you get the cheapo kinds. The kitty is definitely cute, and i'm so buying that book!
