-Bee Mine-

I got a new stamp set that I wanted to try out. I really liked the way the envelope button tie came out. I was actually looking for envelopes that already had the figure eight tie closure on it but found this stamp instead. I'll have to get more creative with it so it pops out more. I'm really into the way pink and blue look together. I think you'll be seeing more of those colors in my next few layouts...until my mood changes and on to some other "flavor".

What's in the Bag?

My 1st visit to The Tattered House I had spent nearly an hour simply going from room to room admiring all it's beauty and doing some wishful thinking...if only I had a bigger home to decorate and more money to spend?! But for now, I was able to pick up a few cute items that put a smile on my face. The items that I am mostly happy about finding is the cigar boxes that I am going to alter


...introducing, "Lola"

From the moment I saw her I knew I had to have her. She was calling out to me! I know she doesn't look like much but once I dress her up a bit with a cute skirt and a little rose choker...I think she'll be quite the looker.

Stay tuned for the new & improved "Lola"

-A Hidden Gem So Close To Home-

This weekend I finally had a chance to stop by a little place that I've been wanting to visit for a long time. I've driven by it several times but never had the opportunity to make it into the store for a gander. The 1st time I saw the beautiful blue cottage I was absolutely mesmerized by it! And not only is it very appealing from the is even more stunning on the inside. I instantly fell in love the moment I stepped into the room. I am so happy that I went in when I did cause I got the opportunity to chat with one of the store owners when it wasn't too busy. She was an absolute delight...LOVE HER!!! I would really love to take pictures of the gorgeous cottage and all it's hidden treasures. Hopefully it will be ok with them.

Guess What I Did Yesturday?

Well, you know me! It was Saturday so once again I was on the hunt for Garage sales. It started off a little bit slow in the beginning and I was kinda getting bummed that I hadn't stumbled onto any great finds yet. The 1st garage sale I walked away with just a few sheets of scrapbook paper and a cup of lemonade. Although I am not a big lemonade fan I still like to support the kids and their quest for quarters. We stopped by several more picking up little tid bit items here and there, but I still had not come across one of those "great finds of the day" yet. We were just about ready to call it a day and head home when I noticed a garage sale sign in our neighborhood and decided to swing by. And that's when these 2 little cuties caught my eyes! The pink one jumped out at me. It's a little bit rough and the hubby thinks she needs some TLC but I kinda like her just the way she is!?!
I also got this beautiful candle lite from that same garage sale. Can you guess how much I paid for all three items...the 2 cute night stands and this wall candle lite holder? Now I only wish I had a bigger home for all my little lovelies to live in.
