March Craft Night

goodies, and our original LUCKY DAY topper atop a coconut cake

What a great night! Thank you to all of our crafters for being a part of our very first Lucky Day Craft-Nite. We hope you will join us again. We had so many incredible toppers leave here last Tuesday evening, we were sad to see them go!! 

This was such a fun and simple project, and a great way to re purpose vintage figurines. Occupied Japan porcelain or ceramic figurines can be found by the dozen at yard sales and flea markets. From time to time we will buy one if it's endearing enough, and after time they began to accumulate on our shelves. Until Haylie came up with this craft, we didn't know what to do with them. Now they have a new, fun purpose. A birthday cake, a baby shower, holidays- these toppers make an excellent gift for a special occasion and even better- they can be reused as a token of tradition if you slip a piece of wax paper underneathe to protect it from the frosting of a cake.

We tried getting pictures of all 11 toppers, but it seems we missed a few- if you have pics, please share with us @

History Lessons:

We LOVE this new section in LONNYMag, called A History of Style. An illustrated guide to "the history of furniture design, one style at a time."  

Also, this Kansas City home (below), is making our lucky-hearts go pitter-pat! Splendor In the Grass, indeed.
