California Sunshine

We finally got some much needed sunshine! Here are a few shops to brighten your day and bring a smile to your face.

Paper leaves for your walls in golden yellow from Paperleaves

Paperleaves is a shop from Camarillo California. These nicely packaged leaves are hand cut and each one has a foam sticker backing. Kristen of Paperleaves suggests a customizable wall treatment to evoke a tree house or forest. What a great idea, that way you'll have sunshine all year around !

Pale Sunshine handspun yarn from Excavations

Excavations is a shop from Hemet California. This beautiful yarn is called Pale Sunshine and has been hand dyed and spun. If you prefer your sun not quite so bright this would be perfect for you !

Mr. Sunshine needle felted bear by Beadztoo

Little Mr. Sunshine here comes from Northern California, San Rafael to be exact. Made by hand, obviously with love, from Beadztoo. He's been completely hand needle-felted from golden yellow and orange wool roving into a handsome adorable bear. This little guy is sure to bring a smile to anyones face!

Giant Sungold Sunflower Bouquet by Dolcechic

Candace Rose of  Dolce Chic is from Northern California. Her beautiful photograph titled Giant Sungold Sunflower Bouquet is a wonderful choice for a print to brighten up your day and any room.

You are my sunshine by Chocolateandsteel

Last but not least is a little fine silver pendant that says it all ! Made by Chocolateandsteel from Los Angles.  It even comes with a little sparkle.

Take a moment to visit these sunny shops, you can click on all pictures & links : )
