2} Cards
3} Pastel stripped sheet & dainty floral pillow case
4} Bingo cards & games pieces, tiny Santa, 12 days of Christmas napkins, Dutch cards, Christmas deer decoration
5} Tournament ribbon & School letter
6} Frames
A silver oval locket ring{ it needs some cleaning & pictures added}
I was lucky enough to pick up a box full of these fun vintage paper lanterns. I'm listing some in my vintage Shop since I can only hang so many around the house :)
A few things that arrived in the mail. This great little pocket notebook from: Scatterboxoriginal's and some really sweet valentines and Thank You cards from theblackapple.
...and something I wasn't expecting to arrive in the mail~ the new issue of Cath Kidston! So between that & my Country Living magazine, I'm set with inspirational eye candy!

Stamping fun!!

Well, I finally got around to putting this purchase to good use. When I found these really neat canvas drawstring bags I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
I picked up a few ink pads, broke out my Stamp{made by talented Roberto Sand}...
and now I have cute little bags to send my Magnets in.
I can see how stamping can become very addicting!

Crazy Weather & Great Mail!

Wow, today's weather was not the usual California weather. We actually had a Tornado warning{something I don't remember experiencing growing up in California}. I was on the way home from the Post Office when I heard the warning on the radio~ which really freaked me out... I couldn't get home quick enough!
{Los Angeles Times}

The best part of the day, was all the mail that arrived! Soaking wet, but it got here. I spent some time browsing last week, ordered a few books{two for me & one for my daughter} now all I need is the time to sit and read :)

I love Amanda Atkins Etsy Shop, so I ordered one of her Postcards~ it's even better in person and I can't wait to buy more!
Then there's the Yards of awesome fabric I couldn't wait to arrive! Somehow I stumbled onto this great Fabric Shop: Hawthorne Threads.
Sometimes placing an order on-line can be difficult to figure out, and more of a hassle than it's worth~ well this was the exact opposite, and now it's my new very favorite place on earth to buy my fabric!! LOVE these prints :)

Felt + Crafty People

I picked up this framed floral felt wall art at an Estate Sale over the weekend. I can't believe all the little details, I can only imagine the amount of time that goes into a project like this.
It's a little dusty, so I need to figure out how to clean it up without ruining it. I think I might want to paint the frame too. Thank You Crafty person{who ever you are} I love it, and will take good care of it :)
I'm always amazed when I come across items made of Felt. Someday I hope to have the time{and patience}to make something myself. Here are just a few inspiring and adorable things I ♥
