Friday Link Loving!


Dirty Dancing is one of my favorite movies of all time. Isn't it everyone's favorite? The Broadway show is coming to Tempe in 2015 and I have to check it out!  I would love this print in my kitchen...

I am sure you have seen Studio DIY's studio reveal by now, but it is so amazing, I have to share the link in case you are the one person who did not!

These geometric painted treat jars from Delia Creates are so simple and cute!

Rifle Paper is now designing classic book covers and they are awesome!

Furbish Studio has a Labor Day sale of 15% off all items (Code: ENDOFSUMMER) 
Ahhh, I love this store! I literally just said on Twitter this week that I want the hot pink candles with the lucite holders... This sale may mean its' time!  (this is also why you should follow along on Twitter because I have super important things to say like what candles I like...) 

I know it has been slow on ABL with the diys lately, I miss it sooo much, I NEED to create, so I am going a little nuts over here at home!  Hopefully, the bumps in the road with our remodel smooth over and I am back to work in no time!

A Bubbly Life this week- Ode to Summer One and Two
Also the winner of the craft stash giveaway was announced! Congratulations and thank you to everyone who entered!

Enjoy the long weekend, xoxo!

An Ode to Summer Part Deux



Summer is ending and as you can tell from my last post, I will miss it!  Kalia and I went on a color hunt to soak up the last days of summer shenanigans.  Color hunts are a game we play where we point out the color of the day all day long.

Inspired by the colors of Juicy Fruit- yellow, red and pink were the colors of the day!  The new Juicy Fruit bubblegum and fruity chews come in two flavors- Original (yellow) and Strawberry (red.) We added in pink to the color hunt because, well, because pink.

We made some of our own color finds using the fruity chews!

The iconic fruit of summer- the pineapple-



Strawberry!



Yellow was easy- her favorite beach ball


Prickly pear on a cactus!



We have our very own pink flamingo. Her name is Anna (if you have a young daughter, you know why... pssst it is because of Frozen)


Bubblegum makes me feel like a kid again- who does not love blowing bubbles- Kalia likes popping mine.  She cannot blow bubbles yet, although her attempts are adorable, it pretty much involves her tongue sticking out and gum falling out of her mouth.   In our photo booth shots she tries to pop them here and I think Colette tried to eat it...
  

Photo booth shots always remind me of Summer- I think it is because of the movie Beaches?  Anyone else? Or is this just a weird me thing?

An Ode To Summer

Summer is coming to an end.  Although it really isn't til the third week of September, Labor Day weekend seems to mark the unofficial end...  I live in Arizona- so we always want Summer to come to an end ;) But let's not forget the joy of Summer before we enter the coziness of Fall.

Fab Friday Link Love


Is it too early to think about Fall?  Yes it is, especially when you live in Arizona, where we do not really get a Fall... But I can dream about wearing this leather jacket on a brisk cool day while stepping on colorful fallen leaves?  Sigh, I just depressed myself, better buy the jacket to cheer me up...

Tattoo your plates! Seriously, flipping brilliant! And Gloria from Little White Whale uses an adorbs zebra tattoo for the plate. I die.

Chili & lemongrass shrimp from Sweet Paul- need to try this asap!

Modern mini concrete candleholders- love these!

The world has been incredibly heart breaking lately.  Every prayer I have is with Iraq right now.  These words* from Anne Frank, a victim of genocide, hatred and war are a reminder to look for the beauty and love all around us.
