This week's fan favorite post comes from Jacqueline of the sweetest shop: So Cute it Hurts. Jacqueline is also the unofficial winner of the "nicest person on the internet" award, which is given at random by me only once-ha! She signs every email and blog post with: "have a lovely, merry, happy day," how darling? I approached Jacqueline last week thinking I might post her favorites right before Mom's day so I included a special question for the occasion. Although it is a week later, I couldn't help but include her answer, it is way too sweet to omit. So, without further ado, meet Jacqueline:
(AW) What is your favorite memory of your mother from when you were a child?
(J) Every day at the same exact time around 5:45pm, I would sit at our garden's swing to wait for my mama to come home from work. She always brought back yummy and sweet treats for us. In fact now that I think about it, it pretty much felt like Halloween every day just without the "trick" but lots of "treats!"
(AW) What is your favorite piece from Art Wall?
(J) This was a tough question because there are so many great pieces. I think my favorite, however, is the Flora Wall Wear by Neawear in the entryway. It's a perfect wall piece for my little studio. I really adore how she included embroidery and stitching in her wall pieces and her vintage frames are just so irresistible.
(AW) What is your most cherished handmade possession?
The flowers that my mom made for me when I was just 14. They were a true work of love and took her a few weeks to complete. I cherish them and they now perch in my little studio.
(AW) What is your favorite item in your home under $10?
(J) That would be my custom-made "So Cute it Hurts" pins by lovely Gigi of Pinks & Needles They make me smile each time I sew!
(AW) What is your favorite morning drink?
(J) I'm a huge tea lover. One of my daily routines is my morning tea. I'm a big tea drinker, have been for years-I'm a creature of habit and tend to find something I like and stick with it, like the tea leafs from Purple Cane.
(AW) If you could pick anywhere in the world to be right now, where would it be?
(J) Right now, that would be Hamburg, Germany. My fiance lives there but Hamburg is really such a beautiful city blessed with amazing architecture, fashionable shops, inspired artworks and restaurants. Most of all it's wonderful there during Christmas with all the wonderful Christmas markets.
