yum yum treats looks good enough to eat eat...

Leslie Dallion is one clever and crafty girl! Her fun-filled website, Pancake Meow is like a little adventure through Candy Land. From illustrations to candy charms, we are going bonkers over her colorful designs. Our favorite print is the Gretchen Gum Shoe Print, poor little Gretchen stepped in gum wearing her brand new pair of Mary Janes! Her sister Astrid seems shocked as well! Whoops! Make sure to watch where you step! This 8.5" x 11" print is signed on acid free cardstock for $12. Inspired by delicious desserts and breakfast foods, Leslie decided to combine her talent for making objects out of clay with her crafty nature to present to the world her line of scented miniature dessert jewelry. She serves up such tasty treats as cupcakes, ice cream cones, caramel apple pie, banana cream cake, donuts, and strawberry crepes scented with such clever fragrances as Mocha Expresso Her Feelings, Cotton Candy Is Dandy, and Banana Split Her Pants. Each piece is handmade making each piece unique. Most charms range between $22-25 and the mouth watering rings cost between $18-24.

sure to tickle your fancy

Parasols Boutique is just charming! It is a precious boutique for babies and children, offering a unique collection of clothing and toys. It is easy to see that they take great care in choosing timeless pieces for little ones that can be passed down through the generations.

We loved this Flights of Fancy Mobile (pictured bottom right) that would make any baby giggle in delight. Each birdie is handmade along with the wooden turquoise blue egg at the center. Which will make your little one wonder which came first? This quirky mobile is $185 at Parasols. We have fallen in love with the sweet illustrations on Parasol's site, which were designed by Leslie Dallion. We were going to write a quick little blurb on her but then saw her splendid pieces on her own website, Pancake Meow . Stay tuned!

How delightful are these bunny prints by Tummy Mountain's Shop.
