Do y'all know about Storyville? If you do not, then you are in luck, because I am going to tell you.

The company -- which owns shops in New Orleans, Austin, and Baton Rouge -- was started by a fantastic group of siblings who grew up right here in Monroe. Since I love New Orleans, and since I also love the Harvey kids, I make it a point to stop by the NOLA location every time I am down. (The fact that the shop is located next to Sucré certainly doesn't hurt, either.) Storyville's t-shirt designs almost all come from online contests (which also feature $$$ prizes!), and the shirts are printed fresh daily in the Storyville Print Shop, also located in NOLA. Storyville's products are very location-centric, so if you are from, have visited, or harbor a deep/abiding love of any of the above locales, Storyville is totally for you.

Monroe / They All Asked For Drew / Water Meter / Who Dat Owl

I myself am partial to the Monroe: Better Than West Monroe t-shirt, pictured above, for obvious reasons. It's all in good fun, though -- WM, we still love you. (You are the home of Duck Dynasty, after all.) I also own the NOLA Water Meter shirt, which comes in a million awesome colors, and it gets compliments everywhere I go. 
 

Desire NOLA / Little LouisianaNOLA Seasons / Little Red Crevette / Deep In The Heart

Many of the shirts are printed in baby/kid sizes, like the Little Red Crevette shirt, which I would kind of like to own for myself. Do y'all think I would look cute in a onesie?

Storyville shirts are available in their respective local stores, AND you may also order them online. See all the designs here, and get to ordering! (And please buy extra for me. Thanks.)

Over the weekend I attended the Austin Blogshop, and words cannot express how delightful/awesome/fun/educational it was. If you are or ever want to be a blogger, I suggest you sign yourself up with a quickness.

 

Along with all the learnin', there was a Smilebooth, , which led to several unfortunate jumping shots of my bare, pale midriff. The photo booth backdrop, however, was really cute. And you, too, can have one! The High Five Factory is making all manner of big, lovely custom-made backdrops (and props!) right over on Etsy. Also, they appear to be assisted by a really cute dog.

So, I want them all. I think I will just set up a photobooth backdrop in every room of my house, and I will never want for headless photo (or midriff jumping) ideas. Right? Right.

Today's Etsy Friend is Evgeniya, who runs the shop Sweetkeetle all the way from Russia. These baby heart pins are so cute that I want to buy them for all of my friends and wear ten of them on my lapel, and also, hand them out on street corners. You know, to the heartless.

The tiny hearts come in magnet form, too, and there are bigger ones available, although I prefer the teeny ones. Also: CARROTS!

I think we could all use some love lately, right? Go get you some.
