i’m linking up my weekly phone pics with jeannett again!  i’m thepleatedpoppy on instagram if you want to follow along!


my kids are big into wearing fake glasses.  and i’m big into my kids.


i have been giving peaks into a new product and i finally finished them!  bitty button earrings are now in the shop!


we had a grand opening party at fred & betty’s and i did the window display.  it is so fun for me to branch out of my normal routine and do something purely creative!


my friend jess had a wine & cheesecake party and it was so much fun!  its really nice to be a grown up sometimes ;)


lily loves to cook, and sean loves to encourage her cooking, and i love to eat.  so everyone wins!  we’re trying a new idea:  having her cook a big fancy meal once a week (with assistance) with a theme.  this week’s theme was raspberries:  pork tenderloin with raspberry sauce, spinach salad with raspberry balsamic dressing, and raspberry bread (basically cake).


this is what it looks like when sean is protecting my life from a bird-sized moth.  i love him.


have you taken my survey yet?  today is the last day, and there’s a little something for you at the end!


i slept in ’til after 8 yesterday!  oh it was so nice!  yes, we were way behind on the rest of our day, but it was awesome.


did you see my post about poppy soap co?  i’d love if you helped support lindy, who gives a bar of her soap to a women’s shelter for every bar purchased!  then hop on over to my facebook page and enter to win 1 of 4 $35 gift certificates to poppy soap co!


how cute is this charm bracelet from lisa leonard designs?  each month i get a new charm in the mail, that little dove being my newest charm.   but so sad – my year is almost over!  i hope she does the charm bracelet again next year!


we are just a few weeks away from our holiday stitch market and it is going to be a gooood one!  if you’re local (or within driving distance) you have to come join us:

thursday, december 5th:  4-10

friday, december 6th:  10-3

saturday, december 7th:  10-3


i would be a really bad single mom.  we would eat breakfast-for-dinner every night and be chubby mc chubbersteins.


i added a few new goodies to my shop yesterday!  this pouch is a new favorite!


 i also added 2 new floral cowl scarves as well – love them!   who says winter scarves need to be blah and dull?

what’s on tap for your weekend?  i’m looking forward to getting some projects done around the house!

    I write a leave a response whenever I like a post on a
    site or I have something to add to the discussion. Usually it is a result of the
    sincerness displayed in the article I browsed.
    And on this post instafriday — The Pleated Poppy. I was excited enough to drop a commenta response :-P
    I actually do have a few questions for you if
    you don’t mind. Could it be just me or do a few of the responses come across like coming from brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I’d like to follow you.
    Could you list every one of your public pages like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

    I always enjoy your instafridays! Love the scarf! And it is such a brilliant idea to have you daughter prepare one big meal with help. She will learn so much!!

    It sounds like Lily is on her way to being a magnificent cook! And I’m very excited about the button earrings, they would make some great Christmas gifts for friends and I want some too :)

    The little button earrings are so cute! Do you think you could post a picture of someone wearing them so I can get an idea of the scale?

    Also, I think it’s great y’all are encouraging your kids to cook. I wish my mom had done that with me more.
