Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa & Lion Riding.

{LISTEN: Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa by Vampire Weekend}

Look what I got in the mail today!






A lovely little bracelet I picked out for myself. It's from Kiel James Patrick...and I dare say, it's the epitome of preppy. I fell in love with the website, and all of the fabulously hand-crafted bracelets and headbands. And do you know what is extra snazzy? All of KJP's pieces are named after iconic people and amazing places...my bracelet is called Prentiss Clovericks Stables from the Cape & Brighton Beach Collection. Doesn't that sound absolutely dreamy?

I dare you to go to the website and not pick out at least one little beauty that you MUST have. I'm already picking out my second purchase. Will it be Corcoran Hallowposh Westinee or Lee Radziwill or Bexteck's Luckiest Charm or......

In other news, we have quite the animal lover here in our house. Hudson loves all types of furry friends, both real and inanimate. The other night he decided that he wanted to ride his lion, and after a few grunts and high leg hoists, he did just that. He was so proud of himself, and while he sat there, he just grinned, looking back and forth from me to Will. We, of course, praised his ingenuity, and sang to him while he sat high on his beast. He let go of the furry mane to throw his hands in the air and dance a bit, all while balancing on the lion.







He sure is cute, huh?

Okay, Hudson on the lion might be my new favorite set of Hudson photos. I can't stand the cuteness!

PS - Totally had an idea of how you can join the OC blogger meetup. Okay, well, maybe not an idea, but more of a persuasion. Come visit for the meetup and you can take little Hudson to Disneyland! Kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. :)

Ah, Hudson is so adorable! Isn't it fun to watch them accomplish something, no matter how "small", the look of pride on their face just melts you!!! And the bracelet is cool, I have a hard time with bracelets because my wrists are really small. They end up around my elbow most of the time! Lol!

Swoop that was a cute little surprise on your wrest. Nice choice. It was fun watching Hudson trying to pull himself up. I would say we have a determined little guy.

Adorable overload. I'm not even sure if I'm talking about Hudson riding his lion or your adorable preppy bracelet. Both are just too cute! I'm totally wary of clicking over to the site to check out all of the awesome handmade bracelets. With the move, I'm trying to be extra conscious of my spending, and I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist crafty jewelry temptation! I can't wait to see your second purchase. Can I just live vicariously through your retail adventures? thanks!

Elisabeth said...

oh i loooove the bracelet!

Della said...

Yay for preppy bracelets! When my sister worked at Hallmark (my brother did too! Ha!) she was always bringing home preppy things.

And how about that gorgeous happy baby you have? He is way too cute!

how gorgeous is that bracelet! not only do i love the design, but the packaging is gorgeous too! i definitely just took a quick peak on the site and had to close the page since i'm on a spending hiatus at the moment. the nautical-feel of the rope bracelets caught my attention right away and i knew it would end poorly (for my bank account) if i kept my browser open any longer!!
