Morgan Lane's Success

I have had my Etsy shop {Morgan Lane Boutique} open for just 3 weeks and the sales have flooded in! I want to thank all of you who have made purchases for yourself, your little one, or have purchased items from my shop to give as a gift. Thank you not only for your support but for also spreading the word. Some of my buyers have let me know that were referred by a blog thank you again so much for supporting my new endeavor!! You guys are so awesome!!

I have added many new pretty little pieces to my shop, along with hairbows especially made for Christmas {and have moved Thanksgiving bows to the clearance section; go here to grab one for just $3.99 - $4.99!}. Here are just some of the Christmas lovelies that I have created that are for sale in my Etsy shop:

There are also hair bows without the felt backing:

And newly added to my inventory are GA Tech & GA Bulldog hairbows!!!

You can go here to see all of the designs that I have created so far.

This week I will start working on hairbows for Valentines Day!!

As a reminder, I also do custom orders {I've been having fun with those!} and if there is a bow that you see in my shop's "sold" section that you would like duplicated, let me know and if I have enough fabric I will recreate it for you! : )

On an unrelated sidenote, I am so behind on putting up Ilah's 10 month post. 11 months is quickly approaching; I hope to have it up this week!!

Brazillian Lemonade Recipe

There's a Brazillian restaurant in Atlanta called Fogo de Chao that my husband and I just love going to. They have a divine drink there that we always get...their Brazillian lemonade. We talk about that lemonade long after we've left the restaurant! IT'S SO GOOD! After dining at Fogo de Chao last weekend, I browsed the internet to see if I could find a copycat recipe and sure enough I did! I made it a few days before Thanksgiving to see if the recipe would truly deliver the same taste and...oh yes it did!! Now we don't have to wait until dining at Fogo de Chao to have their yummy Brazillian lemonade.

I served up a few pitchers of it on Thanksgiving Day and many of you have asked me for the recipe so here it is!....

Original Recipe Yields 4 servings

  • 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup of ice
* If you want to make a pitcher of this lemonade, triple the ingredients {first see if your blender can hold the triple quantity amount; ours does}. Also, I don't quite use an entire 1/2 cup of sugar since it will make the lemonade very, very, VERY sweet. But that's your call! You may want more, you may want less.


1.Wash limes thoroughly. Cut off the ends and slice into eight wedges. Place limes in a blender with the sugar, sweetened condensed milk, water, and ice.
2.Blend in an electric blender, pulsing 5 times. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove rinds. Serve over ice.

Nutritional Information:
Amount Per Serving Calories: 152 Total Fat: 1.3g Cholesterol: 5mg

Yes, lots of sugar...lots of calories! Just one glass of this lemonade and it will probably give you your fix : )


P.S. - For those of you who have asked for my banana bread recipe, I posted it here a long time ago. Scroll to the bottom of the post for it : )

The First 100% FSC-Certified Wood Bicycle in the U.S. From Renovo & Collins

above: the Renovo R4 Pursuit model made with FSC-certified CollinsWood.

The Collins Companies has just announced that it has commissioned the first 100% FSC-certified bicycle in the nation. In case you were wondering, FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council.

The bike, manufactured by Renovo Hardwood Bicycles, is an “R4 Pursuit” model that features a stiff, powerful and lightweight frame. All of Renovo’s bikes are custom-made – adjusting the stiffness and ride quality to the customer’s individual riding style and weight.

Renovo is one of the few companies in the world that manufactures wood bicycles (but not the only one, be sure to see Woody Bicycles ) and the only one making them with hollow frames.

Here's a few of Renovo's beautiful wood bikes and frames made with Black Cherry, Hard Maple, Birch, Hickory, Padauk, Sapele, Laminated Bamboo and exotic woods like Purple Heart, Bubinga and Wenge:

“I am proud to have used 100% FSC-certified wood on this particular bike,” stated Ken Wheeler, owner, Renovo Hardwood Bicycles. “We utilized a species combination of CollinsWood® from the Collins Pennsylvania Forest including; Black Cherry, Hard Maple, and Birch.”

Collins had this bike commissioned for one of their employees, to demonstrate their continued commitment to this mission. “Although wood bicycles are still in their infancy, we are constantly exploring new ways to have CollinsWood incorporated into everyday products and we want our customers to explore new uses,” said Cameron Waner, marketing coordinator for The Collins Companies. Waner continues, “Specifying FSC-certified wood in their projects is one of the most powerful things our customers can do to change the way wood products are harvested and sold around the world.”

The bike made its worldwide debut at the Greenbuild International Conference in Chicago, on November 17-19, 2010.
