my new website / blog!

About four years ago, I started That's Happy. It's brought me a lot of fun opportunities and I've really enjoyed spending time with you here! It's bittersweet because this is the end of That's Happy, but the beginning of something new! Introducing, my new website and blog, lisarupp.com! So maybe, "this blog has moved" isn't the right thing to say, I guess it's really me that's moving. But really, not much will change. There will still be diy's and freebies. (To prove it, ;) see the first of my new desktop wallpapers and download it HERE!) And if you love the "stuff i like," I'll continue posting all of that on pinterest. You can follow me HERE!
All and all, I hope you'll follow me over to lisarupp.com, add my new blog to your readers and stick with me! Love you guys!! Thanks for all of your support and kindness!

ceramics by gemma orkin

I was browsing West Elm this morning and saw the most fantastic vases I've ever seen by Gemma Orkin. The yellow bird one is to die for! Unfortunetely, they were sold out (tear). But I happily found her website afterward. Definitely going on my wish list!

24 Merry Days GIVEAWAY!!

It's day 5 of 24 Merry Days and I have a amazing GIVEAWAY for you! The lovely Mud Australia is spreading the cheer by giving away a beautiful set of serving platters & bowls (a $550 value) to one lucky US reader! Details on how to enter, below!

Mud is all hand poured 'slip cast' limoges porcelain, designed and created by Shelley Simpson. It is all oven to table, microwave, dishwasher safe and oven proof. Visit Mud's Facebook page to see examples of how you can bake in it. For example, the large 'wasabi' colored bowl, in the back, is wonderful for baking in/roasting in and would make a great serving bowl for the holiday.

Mud opened their first international store, this September, in NYC. So, if you're in the area, you must make a visit!
Visit their website for store details.
