Exciting things are afoot here at bumbles & lu.

An old design has been reworked just in time for summer – Anchor wallets! They even have an adorable stripey nautical patterned fabric on the inside.

Also, bumbles & lu goodies are now on their way to White Rabbit in Iowa City, Wholly Craft in Columbus and Youngblood Gallery in Atlanta.

One last order ships on Monday to Adorkable Crafts.


If you, too, are interested in being a bumbles & lu consignor, please email me to discuss – bumblesandlu at gmail dot com


my weekend in food

July 19, 2007

This past weekend was filled with lots of yummy food. Some good for me, some definitely not.

The boy simply HAD to have a Simpson’s pink sprinkle donut from 7-11, so we split one late Friday night.

And Saturday we were lured to Dairy Queen in order to try their new Waffle Bowl cones, which were super overrated & way too sweet. I mean, seriously too sweet.


We attended a vegetarian birthday potluck Saturday evening where we sorta made up for our previous gluttony with delicious veggie cuisine, including my contribution, a cucumber & couscous summer salad. I added a can of chickpeas to the recipe found here.

And Sunday morning I made whole wheat French toast & used up the last of my peaches in a delicious uncooked compote.


In non-food news, I cannot stop listening to Bishop Allen‘s latest album, The Broken String. It is some serious goodness.

Some serious cuteness is Dahlia trying to distract me from a large consignment order!
