I always find myself looking at bikes and bike accessories online. I think part of me wishes I could own a bike shop. Another part of me just wishes that I could own several different bikes because there are so many pretty ones out there! Every time I’m at a bike shop, I always notice the Electra bikes. They’re always the prettiest ones in any shop.
The other day, I was at a bike shop with my friend while she bought some accessories. I noticed this purple bike that I would have taken home with me in a second if I had the money! It’s called Karma:
Karma would definitely be my first choice, but I love these ones also:
If you wanna know more about any of these bikes, check out the Electra website. All of the pics in this post were gathered from various websites/blogs and are linked to their sources. :)
So I’ve had this idea for a while that it would be fun to go on a camping trip. But not just any camping trip. I think it would be so fun to totally decorate our camp site and make it fun! Paper lanterns hanging from trees, pretty glowy things, and of course hula hoops! I was searching Flickr for tent decorating inspiration and I came across a pretty floral printed tent. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one like it! So I started looking into what other pretty tents are out there. Here’s some of what I found!
The previous two are by designer Cath Kidston. Click the pics for their sources.

I don’t think any of these are really me, but they are a nice change from the usual solid color tents. I was thinking that it would be fun to make my own tent and it probably wouldn’t be that hard. I had the idea to use a tent I already have as a pattern. I would sew the tent out of whatever pretty fabric I like and then use the original tent’s poles. It would be a fun project!
Yesterday, I found a pack of chalk in the dollar section at Target (and got so excited!), so I was inspired to search for awesome and inspiring sidewalk chalk art!
I’d never thought of actually using fancy chalks on sidewalk! I guess it’s the only way you’d get such vibrant colors. Good idea!
I love this idea because it’s something creative you can do with only a few colors!
Clever photo idea! :D
I love chalk, it’s one of those childish things that you’re never too old to enjoy (IMO), as long as you have a creative side I suppose!
Have you ever done anything big / impressive / super fun with chalk?
My story isn’t very impressive but I’ll share anyway! When I was in Jr. High, my friend and I snuck onto our school’s playground late at night and drew a giant Jack ball. I have no idea why we wanted to draw that specifically! We didn’t quite get to finish it because a stray German Shepard came out of nowhere and got all in my face, wanting attention. I was so scared that we ran away. I love dogs but I freaked out that he snuck up on us.
I discovered Pinterest this week and I’m a little obsessed! So it’s only fitting that I use this week’s Favorite Finds as an excuse to show you a few of my favorite things I’ve found on there so far! :)
This picture makes me so happy! I need to start collecting jars so I can do this someday. I can’t find the original source for this pic, unfortunately :(
Rose Hip puts pretty pretty crochet edgings on pillow cases! This kinda makes me wanna fancy up my own pillow cases!
I love these colors! This is just too pretty! From Lori Marie.
How cute are these?! Also from Lori Marie.
And I have to show you one thing that’s not from Pinterest, because the kite festival left me a little kite obsessed!
This ginormous (12 foot long!) blue octopus is my dream kite! If I ever have an extra $100 to blow, I’m so getting one!
I’ve been searching for watercolor inspiration on Etsy and I found some stuff that I just love! I’m so amazed! I have a lot to learn about watercolors! Be sure to visit these shops to see the paintings larger. The small sizes that I’m posting don’t do them justice!
