ramblings of a 34 year old....

I received this pillow last weekend from my friend Vana, who has the most darling shop..Le Papier. If you read my Pixie girl post, then you know that Lola wants to let her signature pixie cut grow out....and i've accepted it....





so what a beautiful reminder i will have, this silhouette pillow made just for her...
pop over and take a peek at all of Vana's wonderful silhouette goodness..




Thank you Vana....i love it!


Alright ladies.....as you know.....i'm heading to Spokane early friday morning for a long weekend to The Farm Chicks show, where i will meet and greet all kinds of blog friends from near and far. So I thought .....what do most girls need at a show like this? well...they need a flea market bag of course....to stuff all kinds of treasures...right? Well......how about some fabulous music ...aka ..my playlist to listen to while you drive to the show? And what about a restaurant gift card to go out and eat? Yes. I think that sounds perfect. So...i know alot of you won't be there, even though you will be there in spirit....and since i won't be posting till i return, then maybe you want a Lola B's flea market bag of your own?


Just leave a comment...and i will pick a lucky reader to win one of her very own with a little music and gift card tucked inside.


just so you don't forget about me while i'm away.......


and i'm just saying....maybe..just maybe....some of my new friends in Spokane might get a flea market bag of their own....


i'm just saying...not promising....






and i had to throw this last pic in......





my friend took it of Fin and his buddy......because it's o.k. if boys hold hands.......

The pillow and the pic are adorable.. It's funny you spoke about friendship recently.. the person who sent you the pillow?

She knows you.. she cares..Even from afar!

Oh Kasey, if you ever quit your day job as mom, wife, blogger, boutique owner, and fashionista extraordinaire, you must become a stand up comedian!

Mindy said...

Love Lola's bed. The pillow will be a sweet reminder....
and the pic of Fin is a-dorable. What great memories you will have to cherish of your kids when they are grown up.

I think your bag & music are *very* cute.

Have a great time at the show!

Claire said...

Hey Kasey,
That pillow is great. I am going to check out Vanna's site.
Safe and Happy travels.

Brandie said...

That picture is just too sweet! I am loving silhouettes right now and that pillow is perfect. Have a little extra fun for me and maybe I will feel it stuck out here in Michigan:(

I almost forgot, love that bag! I've been thinking about doing a mini version for LL. The kids love little bags to carry their treasures and library books in. We'll see..

maggie said...

I always find the best giveaways here. You are too generous. Hope you have a good time and meet lots of nice "chicks".

Anonymous said...

Oh Kasey, me again. (BTW - my maiden is Casey!) Would love the generous and thoughtful gift. I am psyched for you to be going to Spokalooloo as we grew up calling it. I mentioned it before, but please see the concierge and ask about Manito Park. It would take about five minutes to get there from the Davenport and you'd be in heaven in the flowers...Oh the photos you'd get (of them and the AMAZING homes along the street, Manito Place, including my cousins!) Have a fabulous trip - Take a sweater or something chic for the evenings as it is still chilly this time of year. Lastly, my 5 kiddos and I board the plane in Columbus in 1.5 weeks to head to Seattle and then Spokane. I Love that another from the midwest is seeing that gorgeous part of our country!!!

Sarah said...

I love the pillow, what a sweet reminder. I especially love what you did with the letters above the bed! Precious idea!!!

We have a pic of our boys when they were 4 holding hands like that, we had to keep it to show them that yes in fact they did get along! :) They do now too...most of the time.

Christina said...

Okay, that pillow ... wow! What an AWESOME thing to have of your kiddos! And I love the picture of your son with his friend. So sweet!

Hope you have a wonderful time this weekend!

Elise said...

That pillow is precious!! I have a little boy{or two} myself and don't understand why people get crazy about them doing the same things girls do. Doesn't make them fruity. Grrr...My little boy loves to give his friends hugs and whatnot-totally sweet!!
Hope your show goes well!! Saw your writeup in CL...

Life At Camellia Cottage said...

Kasey, just wanted to let you know my new Country Living came yesterday, but it was this evening before I had a chance to glance through it. So, I was sitting there going through the pages, and then I see something about Kasey Buick and Lola B's. Hmmmmmmmm, I'd forgotten your earlier post about being featured in this month's issue. Way to go! Hope you are having a wonderful time at the Farm Chicks Show!
