Shop Update

Hello again dear friends. I hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend. I've been busy with many projects including repainting our shed (thanks to help from my sister!) a cottagey green and yellow (I'll post photos after it receives a few finishing touches) and creating some new items for my shop. I've featured them here. Above is a fabulous necklace featuring a vintage chain and fabulous vintage pendant. Update - the necklace has been sold. Thank you!

I thought these were fun colors from some sassy summer earrings. The orange and lime beads are vintage.


And by popular request, I've added some fun boxes. A red and white gingham and cherry box...


And a citrus green and yellow box featuring a vintage girl and deer image. Update this box has been sold. Thank you!

Some fun and fabulous items came in the mailbox including the above brown paper bag scrapbook from Heidi. Check out her blog and leave a comment and she will mail you (for free!) a blank scrapbook to personalize. She has also created a Flickr group for everyone to post their results.


Above is the absolutely fabulous cottage pack I received from the other wonderful Karla. This pack was so chockful I could hardly contain myself as I opened it! I couldn't get everything in the photo. One special touch Karla added is a personalized bookmark. I can't wait to start creating with some of this bounty.


These are some gorgeous vintage pillowcases and lace trim from Heather. Her store is full of some beautiful items! She also has some leads on the Foof-a-Life book - which I finally got a copy of (or at least it is on order)!

Lastly, I have to let you all know that I have been making the wonderful Raspberry Mocha that Kina has been so kind to share. Click here for the recipe. I've been making it in the morning and sipping it at work - Yummy!

Karla it's all beautiful stuff! love the new creations, they are so sweet! (BTW the link you have where it says 'shop' takes me through to a very strange error message, not sure if anyone else gets that screen or not?)
