Denim Jackpot

I just wanted to put forth a few good words for this wonderful company that I have come across recently:

Raleigh Denim

For those of you that have lost hope in ever finding good denim, here is your robin hood.

Each pair is made by hand, from REAL denim ~ yes ~ the jeans you are sitting there wearing are more than likely not the real thing.........thats why they fall apart in a few years time.
But I don't want to just focus on the fabulous jeans themselves.
The real gem of Raleigh Denim is this:

They keep their artisans on american soil.  They use as much product and supply as they can from american soil. And they choose to uphold to the greatest standard of business: Quality over Quantity.

Now wouldn't it be something if more companies followed these same standards......we might actually have jobs in this country!

Alright, I've done my bit of patriotism for the year ~ now lets go buy some jeans.

Nursery Dreams

Well looks like the Canadians are holding me hostage here for a wee bit longer than planned. Booooo. Hissssss. As a result The Hillbilly Kid shop on etsy will have to wait until the end of September......and thats really stretching it. We should be rolling into the bluegrass.......well I hear nowadays its more like browngrass....around the 21st of September and within that last week I have to break out in a flurry of insanity to get product done, shot and be continued

SO I have been thinking a lot about re-doing Hillbilly Babys room.........well technically it was never done becuase with the life of a gypsy, whats the point if your never there? Well there is a point for us aesthetically minded individuals. All should be pretty no matter how much time you don't spend there. Putting attention and time to all that we do gives life the midas touch.

Wilst exploring this wide wide internet world I have come across some killer blogs and websites. One being where I discovered this inspirational board:

I never have been to0 keen on most boys nursery ideas. There is only so much sailboat, jungle animal, soccer ball, etc. a woman can take.

I thought I was at a loss for ideas until I saw this! Some things are slightly too much on the mod side for my taste but over all its fabulous and has got my creative wheels turning.

Another one I adore is the Little Brave Man board:

Cowboys, Indians, and chevron rugs. Doesn't get any better.
