A Very Merry Etsy Birthday

The title gives away the age of this post or at least its inception. I have added a few things since I put this one together weeks ago. I have missed my Etsy roundups and my plush gatherings too. I have collected enough super fantastic softy images for my next installment but need to find a drop of time to put it all together. When I began the LL&O blog in January I promised myself that I wouldn’t use it as a forum for my whines and gripes (I can moan with the best of them. Adam and I have a ‘pretend’ production company called Cross & Grimm). I have found lately that it is becoming a little message board from which to proclaim my run of illness (scroll to the end for an update!) and lack of time-urgh! I am sure that many of you will relate to the inexorable gush of minutes and the notebooks filled with unfulfilled plans and schemes. There are so many things I would like to do with the blog, a longed for typography overhaul, giveaways, collaborations, videos, I would like to offer gratis ad space and become more active in the art/craft/handmade community. Oh so many dizzy ideas! Slow growth and longevity are perhaps the words I should be holding fast to, Lou Lou & Oscar is so very dear to me both as a project (sanity saver) and as a means to connect with truly lovely and remarkable people. Slow down Miss Hare. Ok, enough venting, feast your peepers on these goodies!

Yummy goodies! Ishi and me are both doing quite a bit better, we can’t seem to fight off the coughs and snivels, but we are upright-hooray! Thank you so much to everyone who left get well wishes, it is truly appreciated and helped beat the bugs I’m sure. I am hoping to wade into my inbox today, I have felt so disconnected and have missed my lovely friends terribly, I will also be trying to meet a project deadline, only a few days to catch up. I will reveal all very soon. There is of course this week’s interview to come, a bit of a Brooklyn theme for the next two weeks, a little hint! I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter break, hands up who never wants to see chocolate again?! XXX

  1. Yay ! You are back !
    I did the same promise to myself : “No over sharing. This will NOT become a diary” and lately I ended up talking about planning a trip, showing pictures of said trip, talking about my brother ………………
    Ack !
    But you know what ? I love reading about you (and some other dear people) so it should be ok ! As long as there’s more than that (we have to keep that in mind !)
    And there’s faaaar more than that in yours : LL&O is a little treasure-chest of a blog !

  2. I love the birch pillows and the chalkboard flower pot. Hope you are on the mend soon!

  3. A treasure chest indeed, a gigantic pirate treasure chest filled with jewels from all over the etsian world. You have so many of my favorite maker’s of thins in this treasury. I don’t know where to start but I think the peeps out at sea made me smile and I really need to smile this morning. Drat , the first day back to work after a long weekend. Hugs, sweet little pirate .

    I would like to see lots more chocolate again! 😀

    It’s funny, I’ve been meaning to write more about myself and my life in my blog, since right now it’s mostly just about my work more than anything else, and while my life isn’t super exciting or particularly exciting most of the time, my “brand” is still me so my life is a part of it all.

    And thank you for sharing these yummy Etsy finds!

    So many wonderful treasures you’ve found!

    I like when there is a bit of a personal touch in one’s blog, so don’t worry about your so-called complaining. I’m glad that you are feeling a little better — I do think of you every day when I see your adorable keyring at hand! 🙂
