Stuttering Shell: Mail Call!

Mail Call!

The postman has been very busy delivering various goodies to my doorstep these last few weeks! I went on a bit of a spending binge and now I must share the goods with you all. Are you ready?


The Red Crab Stripe Platter from Molly Lou Gifts. I bought this and it arrived just in time for our blue crab feast last month. I absolutely LOVE this platter...it's so beachy, it's so US!



I have a lve affair with Etsy. I found these next two items by way of fellow bloggers thanks to a couple different giveaways.

This is the Large Personalized Monogram Decal Wall Graphic by Decal Monograms. I loved how the decal shown online was framed, so I framed ours, too! It's hanging by our front door and I love how it showcases our {being me & the hubs} initials intertwined with the big 'C' for our last name. Side-note: Our wedding cake topper was a heart {made of cake} turned on it's side and had our monogram on it - A C M - but, thanks to our wedding planner's horrendous handwriting, when we walked into the reception hall the 'C' looked more like an 'L.' I'll have to find a pic to show you. So, this wonderful piece of art completely makes up for that botched wedding incident!

And, seeing as how vinyl decals & lettering are pretty darn 'hot' right now, I just HAD to get this for the hallway in our home:

It is the Fruit of the Spirit Vinyl Wall Decal by Back40Life. I love this on our wall! The kids love to ask me to read it to them and my six year old son said these are his words to live by {and, sometimes, I need to remind myself of that, too!}.

And, just when my Etsy love affair seemed over...WRONG! I fell in love with baubles & goods from Polka Dot Moon!

The bottom row {left to right}: Tide Pool earrings and Sea Glass Bobby Pin set

I'm so sad because I wore the Sea Glass & the Lily Pad earrings to the Dave Matthews Band concert on Friday and when I got home I realized that one of the earrings was broken! It was a sad, sad moment. My husband - who is MORE optimistic than I am - said that maybe the earring fell off in the truck. I hope so...



And, finally, while making preparations to welcome Frisco into our home, I just HAD to buy him a collar. Of course, it couldn't be just any collar. It had to be a collar by Katie & Olive. You may know the mastermind behind Katie & Olive - it's Erin from Everything According to Erin {aka The Prep-E Girl}. Erin creates pretty collars - for dogs & kitties - in the cutest fabrics all.by.hand. Proceeds from all the collars she sells goes towards the Puppies Behind Bars charity. Please, please, please go to her blog to check things out.

For Frisco, I purchased the 'Beachy Puppy' collar...go figure, huh?



And, as a surprise, Erin also sent along the 'Crabby Puppy' collar for Frisco to grow into - because a dog can never have too many collars!


And, finally, the pup needed a bag {OK, OK, momma needed a bag} and what is more stylish & cute for the canine set than the Insulated Pet Travel Bag from Whitney Caroline Designs. Whitney is working with Erin on reaching her $3000 goal for Puppies Behind Bars and for every Insulated Pet Travel Bag purchased, Whitney is donating $10 to Puppies Behind Bars on Erin's behalf!

Here is Frisco's bag in all of it's orange & paw print glory...Whitney even 'personalized' it for me!


It's been a busy - spending - month, hasn't it? Of course, every last purchase was well-justified and so worth it! I hope this post piques your {shopping} interest a bit and that you check out these wonderfully talented people...be sure to tell them I sent ya! *wink*

LOVE the wall monogram! And I really want a quote of some sort, something romantic or dream like to put on my bedroom wall. Where exactly did you find the decal?
