Peas & Carrots

One of the things I enjoy about reading and searching for so many blogs, are the names. I love the names. Especially if they include a piece of fruit or vegetable.........or flowers.

Peas & Carrots.......could you get any cuter than that? On my Esty quest the other day....I also needed to look up some baby items. My husband has a baby shower at work for one of his producers........he lovingly asked if I would make a small baby scrapbook...........Hasn't he noticed the dust on my scrap table? It would be much easier if I just found something original on Etsy........Hopefully I will have enough time......which I doubt........you know how men are with office gifts........"Honey, I need a gift.......today"
But I also knew that I had this gal in my "FFF" file........and if you don't know what that is........then you haven't been reading. I also got a notification that she unsubscribed to my personal blog......**SHOCK** I won't hold it against her. I guess taking care of young ones and running this business.........she doesn't have time for boring vacation posts...........I mean I hardly have anything creative on there anymore. I don't blame her........really. I guess I need to accept the reality that not everything thinks I'm interesting. :)
Peas and Carrots has adorable bags..........cute cute really cute bags.......I like that chair too.I didn't see any camera bags though.....:( Not that she isn't talented enough to make them.......hint hint. She is also a stay at home mom that created a job for herself so she could be home with her babies............Gosh I love the internet! Look at the opportunities it has opened up so women could make different choices for their families.

I loved these bibs for my son.........it was so hard to find really cute ones 9 yrs ago. Where was Etsy then?
And boy howdy could I have used one of these! Let's just say we only owned one bottle and my son had never used it..........wait that's wrong.......he thought it was just something to chew on.....
Darling baby blankets............such cute fabric choices.
Mini Quilts! Oh my.

She even has a kitchen re-do on her site. And you know how we love a kitchen re-do! I actually liked the before.......I think it's really charming.but I like the after even better. Love the cabinets, the back splash, the dark hardware.Another site to add to your reader. And I must say, you guys all kicked it up a notch with the comments. Thanks.......I do understand that you click on the featured blog and then get lost........so I'll try to be less selfish in the future. :) As long as you leave them a comment......share the love.

Also, if it worked right.........the title should also be a link to their site now.

Edited to add: I bought a blanket, a bib and a burpie from Peas & Carrots.......all SO cute. Beautifully wrapped together with her ribbon. My husbands producer LOVED it. Thanks Jessica!

Oh wow! I think I'm going to love that new blog. I'm going to be needing a few more hours in a day to be able to read all the wonderful blogs out there though. I'm adding it to my reader anyway. How can I resist Peas & Carrots? It's what my husband and I call each other (gag, I know!).

Jessica Leman said...

Kim...you poor thing, you must have thought I didnt like reading your blog...WRONG!!! I now have all of my blogs in something called "bloglines" www.bloglines.com where it updates me when a new post is on a blog. I love it :) So never to fear, I read your boring vacation posts...sometimes :)
Thanks for posting about my biz! Your awesome!
Blessings!
Jessica

Peas and Carrots is a darling site! Love the quilts and the kitchen re-do. Why am I so obsessed with kitchens all of a sudden? I can't get enough of them. Fun stuff.

super cute name... I love the cute blog names out there. I really need to think of one, I never really put any effort into it- when I started my blog, I just kind of jumped in... and Amy & Jeff seemed logical. And yes, logical it is... cute? Not quite. I'll be thinking, feel free to pass any great ideas my way! :)

Crystal said...

Anna said...

Her stuff is so adorable, my kids are all older now 5 and up but you are right the internet is a fabulous tool for all those talented creative women out there who are itching to do something more than just be stay at home mums. I love all the sites you feature very inspiring and I always forget to leave comments because I get sidetracked searching your featured sites. Thanks again Anna.

Jennifer P. said...

The labels are the best on all her stuff---really shout: "this is waaaay too cute to have come from Wal-Mart! Or even Target!". And she did a fabulous job on her kitchen!

Congrats on the Flat Betty feature Kim!!! I recognized your D too!

Smith Gallery Photography said...

shelley said...

Kim, the lens I used for my photos that you asked about is the Canon 50mm 1.4 by far my favorite lens EVER! I read somewhere that you were thinking of getting it and I highly recommend it! You'll be glad you did! Shelley Haganman

Mrs. Trixi said...

I can't wait to check out this blog. I know what you mean about where was Etsy, for me 11 years ago. Those are the cutest baby items.
and as for the kitchen redo, I posted today begging, shamelessly for tips on mine, so I can't wait to see this one.
Blessings~~

I love love love Peas & Carrots. Such cute stuff. I, too, have a thing for names with fruits and/or vegetables ... I named my design company PlumPearApple for that very reason! :)

Rosa said...

Straight away from Loopy's! What a fantastic idea you have here. I must add you to my fav's to find fresh new blogs! Thank you!

Rosa said...

Sorry, meant Saucy's!

Jen - Balancing beauty and bedlam said...

Ok, the thing I love most about you (for today) is that you featured her anyhow...even when you thought she had unsubscribed...which now we know that she hadn't. Of course not, who would unsubscribe to you? The funny thing is that I don't even know how to subscribe or get people to subscribe or anything like that. Do you know how huge of a learning curve there is in the world of blogging?

Little Window Shoppe said...

I love names with fruits and veggies in it too...what a lovely blog.

Tara said...

What a great blog! Love, love, love all there stuff!

Andrea said...

Adorable bibs! And the bags are so cute, totally something I would love to have. I will be saving that one for sure, add it to my Christmas wish list. hehe

princessmimi said...

I love your blog and peas and carrots has adorable things! Here is a cute baby shower gift idea for you...especially if you know it's a girl!!! Custom and even personalized hair bow holders to match any room decor...okay, so I make them, but they are darn cute!! You can see them at www.princessmimidesigns.etsy.com. Sorry, no fruits, veggies or flowers in that name!

Saucy said...

About that baby gift hubby asked you to make... you could probably whip up a paper bag 'n tag book with no time, eh? Those aren't too bad.

Little Sweethearts said...

I've seen this blog before, but sometimes I just forget to add them to my favorites. I'm glad you came across it!

Moi said...
