The Lovely Kate Henry

i got my sweet package thursday. it's like christmas all over again! such a sweet seller. one of the nicest i have worked with in a long time :) and she's a featured seller on etsy! very well deserved in my opinon and i'm sure many others are thinking the same!



wowzers! i'm really excited with all the sponsors donating items! i've been a member of etsy for about two years and just started selling and if you look at my old profiles, you're into a big mess of my favorites. and some of my oldtime favorites are donating! weee!! this is total excitement.

aaand today is my four month aniverasy. happy four months quoc!!!


Sneak Peak



i have read so many blogs announcing a giveaway or a giveaway to-be, so i thought, hey! let's have one here at umbrellastand!

follow bloggiveaway for more!

so far i am only looking at shops and have had a few sellers agree to sponsor the giveaway already which is a good start since my shop and this blog is only a few weeks old and not many people have heard of this blog yet.. it was pretty brave of the sellers to agree to it, i must admit. but it is very appreciated!

thanks to everyone who donated items already!


what's a kid to do with only a camera and a roomful of inanimate objects? take random pictures!

i am going to get some oldschool film and dust this dear camera off. it's an old cannon from the 80s. my parents bought it when they had my eldest brother. he's 22. i might just keep it for nostalgic purposes. who knows?

Spring Cleaning!

okay, so maybe it's a little early...but it's never a bad time to organize!!
i am hoping to get a studio done by at least the summer, maybe spring break so i'm on an all out manhunt for the perfect solutions.

thus far, i have found the greatest websites ever.
organize.com has all of the cutest things! i am in love.

Design*Sponge is also a great place to get inspired!

new items were added to the shop today. hope you guys had a lovely weekend!

All For Love

my dear friend at oh, hello friend has brought much inspiration to me.
