sweet find

I was thinking about my neices today. I have 5. They are all super cute & cuddly. I came across these wall decals on Etsy and think one of my little gals should have some.

Made by Mae in Australia. These unique wall stickers are made of fabric instead of the usual vinyl. This makes them perfect for children, as they are removable and completely reusable. They can be scrunched into a ball and will easily un-scrunch and re-apply to your wall, many times over. They are even washable. Stickers can be applied to almost any surface, and will not damage your walls.

I am particularly fond of the Dress up Dolls. How fun would these be on your fridge? I want some for my place! (my b-day is June 25th for any interested parties).

sweet find.

Photographer Yvette Inufio seems to capture utter prettiness. (I know that isn't really a word, but it should be) Her photographs remind me of a delicate perfume. If delicate perfume had an me, this is what it would look like. Her work inspires me. See more of her work here.
Yvette was also featured on Photojojo as one of 20 Photographers Whose Work You Can Actually Afford.

I want to live in her photographs. They feel so dreamy and delicate and pretty.

It annoys me when people complain about how they have neglected their blogs. one cares. So I'm not going to do that.
I've been busy. Life is getting in the way of my blogging time. Life is also getting in the way of me being able to spend time with my friends...and that makes me sad.
I saw this picture today and it reminds me of my cute sweet friend Sidney. She has a thing for typewriters. I'm not sure why. We have never explored the issue. Hi Sidney. Miss you. Why do you like typewriters so?

Oh la la.....

Check out my neighbor, Christina Mallet's, intimate photography site...Katrinkas Secret. Located in the building just next door to Sweet Petula, Christina (aka Katrinka) takes beautiful~tasteful~sinful~indulgent photographs of women. I'm so craving a session with her right now..and it is the perfect time as she is offering a $100 discount on any session booked before May 15th.
One look at her portfolio and you will see how amazingly beautiful & comfortable the sessions must be. Her photos are somehow slightly naughty and pretty and delicate and sexy all at the same time.
Each session includes a preshoot consultation, during which you’ll discuss your favorite and least favorite body parts, and professional retouching of your best 20 to 50 shots.
The resulting images are high quality and downright stunning. So, go...sign up. Tell her I sent you.
