Red, White and Blue

Memorial Day. For some, a day of recreation and BBQ's, a well earned 3-day weekend to enjoy watermelon, fun in the sun, and to kick off the summer festivities. And there is nothing wrong with that. We have have so many reasons to celebrate.

But for those like me, it's a heavy holiday. For anyone with loved ones in the military it's a sobering holiday. A day to honor fallen heroes and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. A day to wonder and hope that your hero isn't the next to give all.

My sense of patriotism has always been strong, but since becoming an Army wife, it has grown exponentially. I have so much respect for all who wear a uniform, be it armed forces, firefighters, EMT's or police. Our country is built on the backs of those with the courage to fight for what isn't free - freedom.

It's inevitable that somehow this sense of pride in our country and the people who make it great has infused itself in my designs. Soon after my husband deployed my designs began to take on a patriotic, home spun feel. Maybe it wasn't what you would expect of Eternal Eden, but it felt right. I went with it.

In some very small way, I hope that these little pieces of my subconscious can somehow bring honor to the lives of so many who have served. I hope that they can be a tribute and a gesture of gratitude for the BBQ's and watermelons that I can enjoy every day, because I am free.

Thank you to all, past and present, who have served. We owe you everything.

April Showers bring Baby Showers?

And May flowers too. But mostly baby showers! I love this season. My husband and I are happy to announce that we've joined the 2011 baby boom. We're expecting our first child in August's a Girl! We're thrilled!!

As a result, I am in full nesting mode - spring fever style - with visions of nurseries and baby showers dancing in my head. Lady bugs are my thing at the moment, aren't these beauties precious? Must find a way to incorporate them into the nursery and baby shower!

But we're not just nesting, we're also accessorizing! Yesterday I visited a shabby chic antique shop in Old Town Folsom called Melange and fell in love with literally everything in the shop. This place is like a pink frosting and fluffy cloud factory. Amazing! I came home with a vintage french silk baby bonnet and pink slippers for my little one.

And since fluffy-frosting-spring-fever-baby-mode is in full effect, I'm also adding some wonderful new items to my kid's shop, Eden's Angels. The latest is this cutie, Lemon Cupcake Necklace. There will be pink and fuchsia cupcake necklaces to follow.

I so wish our little one was here already for Easter, it would be so much fun to dress her up in spring pastels. Well if I can't dress mine, maybe I can dress yours? :) Have you seen this adorable gift set? These tiny earrings are so cute! And it's a great deal too.

I do hope you are thoroughly enjoying this spring weather, surrounded by lots of joy and new life. XO from pink frosting land!

Mass Moving. Moving Masses. Massively Exhausted.

Eternal Eden has been on the move!

Seriously. We have moved from Alabama, to Upstate New York, to California in the span of, oh about two months. Yeah, Army life is never boring! Good thing I have a portable career...sort of. I spent a small fortune shipping boxes upon boxes of product and supplies to Calfornia. All to have it rain for the first two weeks I've been here, making photography (and walking my dogs) virtually impossible.


No matter! I have been busy making collections of pretty Etsy things in the meantime. Check out my latest treasury called "Watery." Can you tell what inspired it? All this spring rain perhaps?

Hey, I am not complaining. Come summer I will be wishing for a little of this water that's going around to wet my parched lips. Summers here take no prisoners!

Great to be back. Some fresh new springy treats are on their way just as soon as the sun comes out!
