Is this a dream?

Yes this is real and in a few years this could be what Portland is like! I'm so glad I live in such a bike friendly city. Will cycling become the new norm? Almost there!

Fairy Floss at Saturday Market

A couple of my super cute friends at the Portland Saturday Market recently started up a business called Fairy Floss!

Fairy Floss, a new spin on Cotton Candy, Organic, Fair Trade, Vegan, Nut/Dairy/Gluten Free. A Sweet Treat for all ages! I got some cute photos of them in action and tasted their popular flavor - Birthday Cake! Also Eden is wearing an apron from Lolly-tots! It's the stripped one. ;)

Check our their facebook fanpage for more info.

Double Rainbow!

This video makes me so happy!

Silly Hats at Saturday Market

Yeah it might be the middle of July but over here at lolly-tots factory we are still pumping them out and never fast enough! Fur is flying and threads are dangling from sock footsies. It's been a crazy month.

You wouldn't believe what a great mood everyone was in on Saturday. Maybe it was all the sun? Maybe it's because it's summer vacation? I think it's just summer and the BBQs and the warm bike rides and the smiles really gets to you after a while. These grumpy Portlanders couldn't help but be cheerful. They finally gave in. Everyone is DAMN HAPPY and I'm loving it.

It might also be that I'm only doing the market every couple weeks now so I get a long enough break to recover and be all smily again. Also enough time to get everything done so my etsy customers are not being forgotten. Everyone's happy and I'm out enjoying the sun. It was a good healthy boost of awesome being around my customers this weekend. Past customers stopped by. My booth neighbors were HILARIOUS. I had a grand time and finally getting into the groove of being a handmade vendor. Still the best job I've ever had. The good parts and the bad, I'll take them all!

If you have any lolly-tots inspired photos that you would like to share you can always upload them on our facebook fanpage or our flickr grouppage!

Rainbow Cocktail!

This looks like the perfect drink for a lolly-tots kind of afternoon. Sitting in the backyard with your fuzzy pink hat sipping on your colorful concotion.

Oh and there are lemon peel stars? You have GOT to be kidding me?!!

Check out the recipe here. :)
