Polyvore Party Planning

Have you tried Polyvore?
If not, you are in for a treat.
It is a fun website where you can create inspiration boards from images from various retail websites. The images all link back to the source, so you know exactly where to buy those cute hair clips or adorable shoes.

I showed my Little One how to use it yesterday.
This is what we came up with.
Pink Paris Party
Her birthday is in October and she has decided that she wants a Paris themed party.
With a candy buffet.
And stuff-your-own poodles.
And an Eiffel Tower cake.

More Pink Paris Party

I think I have my work cut out for me.

The Best Halloween Ever

I am very excited to take part in ArtsyMama's Halloween festivities again this year.
You can read all about her special holiday blog, The Best Halloween Ever, right here.
The private blog will be full of inspiration, tutorials, giveaways, and a swap.
Kari has done an amazing job of putting this together!

Guess Where

My family and I just returned from a fun vacation.
We made it!
Five days of living in a tent.
My husband and I used to camp quite a lot,
but this was our first time with both of the girls.
They LOVED it and can't wait for our next adventure.

Be the first to guess which state we were in and I'll send you a
$25 gift certificate to Speckled Egg!
Just post a comment with your answer.
Be sure to include an email address, if you don't have a blog.

Edit: Yeah! Congrats Caitlin! You were the first to guess New Hampshire. I'll be emailing your gift certificate tomorrow! Enjoy!

Bead Party

Cassandra is having a bead party to show off all of the
wonderful goodies from her recent swap!

This was so much fun!
I had a lovely group and received some gorgeous beads.
Have a look-see!
(Sorry that my photos aren't so great today ~ it's kind of a hazy, yucky day!)

Sweet pinks and greens from Bryanna.

Soft blues and whites from Debi.

Oceany blues from Michele.

Yum, yum!
Did I mention that all of these beads came in sweet little boxes?
Too cute.
Can't wait to play with these new treats.
Thank you, girls!

New Wheels

How cute is this?
My new wheels!
It was a complete impulse buy.
Yesterday, I was doing some errands and spotted a display of these.
Love at first sight.
I just had to have it.
The colors are amazing ~ a lovely aqua, cream, and brown.
I can't wait to "cruise" around on this with my girls.
I just need to find a cute basket.
Do you think that some vintage ribbon tassels off of the handlebars would be too much?

You won't believe where I found it.
Right here.
Just in case you need one too.

Birthday Time!

It's a little hard for me to believe...

SIX years ago Speckled Egg was born.
I have had such an amazing experience with this little shop.
I've learned a lot.
I've had a lot of fun.
And most importantly, I've made so many wonderful friends.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
It really has been a blessing to be able to do something that I love AND to be able to stay home with my girls.
The best of both worlds.
I'm looking forward to many more years to come.

As my Little One would say, "Enough with the mushy stuff!"
Let's party!

I'm a big fan of dragging out birthdays, so we will be celebrating all month long with giveaways, special offers, and some fun & games!

Let's kick things off with FREE SHIPPING!!!
Now through August 6th, enjoy free shipping on all U.S. orders.
