Today I Love: Jonathan Adler iPhone Cases

jonathan adler iphone cases

These Jonathan Adler iphone cases are so beautiful.

My favorites are Blue Circles and Multi Bargello. I can't choose just one.

I wish I wasn't scared of scratching the screen and dropping my iPhone face-down. This is why I have to carry an ugly old man case with flip-front cover and belt clip. At least I don't use the belt clip.

Which one is your favorite?

Be sure to look at all of See Jane Work's cute desk accessories while you're looking at the cases. Their selection will cheer up any cube.

Today I Love: Ice Cream Pinata

Look at what I found on Black*Eiffel! Can I keep it?

I love how it's made with hot pink crepe paper and coffee filters. The ruffles bring an elegance usually not found with fringy tissue paper.

I would fill this baby with ice cream flavored candy and mini ice cream shaped erasers.

What do you like to fill your pinatas with?

Living fairly close to several of Austin's pinata stores - YES there are pinata stores here - I might never make one of these ice cream cone pinatas. However, if you'd like to have a try, check Simply Modern Mom's tutorial.

Cynthia Rowley Band-Aids

My friend Sharon and I basically are the same person. We like all the same things. Right about the time I was thinking about posting these Band-Aids by Cynthia Rowley. She posted them first.

Aren't they lovely? The next time a girl who is drinking, dancing, and smoking at the same time burns me, I know what I'll use to dress my wound.

Sharon Loves This Bridal Shower

Sharon & Megan

My friend Sharon is getting married.

Last weekend was her bridal shower. There were lots of Asian ladies at her shower (friends of her mom). Here's a picture of Sharon (and Kyle) with the Asian ladies.

Sharon Kyle & Asian Ladies

There were actually so many ladies, I couldn't fit them into the frame. Sorry other ladies!

Here's Sharon with Ade, a mutual friend who introduced us long before Sharon started her blog. It was after the blog, that we decided we're kinda the same person.


Sharon & Ade

I fully support wedding registries so couples can get what they actually want. But, I broke the rules and made her gift.

Here it is:

You can make your own customized plates, too. Here's my tutorial in case you want some guidance.
