( custom letter necklace by merriweather council )
I love the colors and concept of this necklace!

I really enjoy giving gifts and especially enjoy finding something simple that I think will bring joy to the receiver. I came across this San Francisco platter a few days ago and realized that it needed to be sent as a late birthday gift for someone special..............

I was ecstatic when I found these sweet birthday plates............
ecstatic for two reasons-- they gave me the theme for Graeme's birthday party ( kind of-- I'm sure we'll throw a few cars and other favorites in there for good measure ) and I could cross one thing off of my list for party supplies! Graeme loves "yetters" and when I saw these plates at Target, I knew they were the ones. I'm envisioning "G" cookies and cups that spell out his name.............

like these, wink wink............
I saw these at a shop in Portland, called Noun, which I will share more on soon--they happen to sell St. Cupcake cupcakes which are delicious and might also make an appearance at Graeme's birthday party to avoid cupcake catastrophes such as last year's................

And if all of these finds weren't enough, I went thrifting a few evenings ago and came across the perfect pair of maternity jeans from A Pea in the Pod, along with the book Olivia for Graeme ( we read it eight times yesterday! ), and a wooden airplane from the Oregon Wooden Toy factory. I was thrilled!

happy thursdaying..............
