I received the most cutest little girl in the mail last week!! EEE! Don't you just love her!?!
She's one of Elizabeth's, over at Creative Breathing, wonderful creations. I love her sweet little details and if you look close you can see a little bunny rabbit on her skirt! How cute!! Thank you soo much Elizabeth! She's perfect! I can assure you that she will have a good home :) :)
Today was another happy mail day, I wasn't even expecting. I adore this sweet pretty fabric with that "oh so very cute" vintage duck card! The fabric is so springy too! I can't wait to use it! This little pile of sweetness came from Heather over at Vintage Grey :) Thank you so much Heather!! :)
A few bright and cheery pictures full of springy colors :)
While visiting family over the weekend we got to go into a bead store. A bead store that is one of the largest in the U.S. A bead store that has anything you can think of. Ahhhh I love this store...it's like heaven in there! :) Luckily I've known about it for a few years now, but it's always a pleasure looking forward to going in and finding new beads to play with:)
If you haven't seen their cute Easter parade floats with these planters, you must go visit and take a look!! SOOO cute!! :) I'm so glad I was able to pick a couple up in the shop! :)
(crafting and playing a bit)
Crochet lavender flower with a cute Easter brooch :)
One of my granny blankets i'm working on,
since I took this picture, I've already added three more rounds to it.
My jars are filling up with crochet goodness :)
Tomorrow hubby and I are going to visit my cousins and aunt for the day, i'm excited! I haven't seen one of them since last summer sometime. It will be a good visit! I believe we are going to an awesome bead store together too! Yay!
Hope you keep your fingers busy over the weekend!!
Last Saturday I got a chance to do a little thrifting.
(One of my favorite things to do!-Find Treasures!)
And this is what I go to come home with::
A very pretty vintage McCalls Needlework & crafts magazine.
The pages are just full of pretties! And such vintage goodness!
In the store I was flipping threw, and saw this adorable crocheted bunny!
Oh isn't he darling!?! I would love to make one!
I found these interesting stamp books, I think they were used to collect the stamps in. I thought I probably could use those in crafting, jewelry making, or something! :)
I was so excited when I found that little box (next to the McCalls mag, in the pic) hiding in a book shelf with old books. I get so excited when I see little boxes hiding! WHAT'S INSIDE! WHAT'S INSIDE!! I'm yelling in my mind....haha. Hopefully one day I don't accidentally yell out loud! It was a stamper with all the original pieces inside! It's one that you arrange each letter to say whatever you want. I've actually been wanting one of these, I looked all around at Hobby Lobby and couldn't find one, so this was perfect!
And of course I found a cute little Easter pile of some cute things!
Oh aren't these kitty playing cards the sweetest too!! I thought they were so cute!
I found a couple more things, but they will have to wait for another post! :)
I did add a few things to my Etsy shop, including a few kitty cards :)
