Weekend delights!


It's been a nice long weekend here. The weather has been quite mild for Minnesota. We nearly broke a record of 55 degrees the other day. When I brought out the Christmas decoration boxes, it prompted me to organize things a bit. So that has taken much of my free time this weekend. I did get to an estate sale with my mom yesterday. Found this cute piered candy platter and immediately felt the desire to make almond bark covered pretzels to put on it. Yum! They are nearly gone already:) Also found some more glass canisters for my newly organized craft goodies. While we were out we passed by a fun little store called Crafty Planet. Of course we had to stop in. It was quaint and cozy and had the most fun retro fabrics that I've seen! I bought some sample strips of a few Amy Butler prints. I couldn't pass them up. Her fabrics are GoRgEouS!!! These are from her new Belle line. Isn't this gothic rose amazing:)

Hope you're having a nice weekend!

Must have been the weekend for breaking temperature records - we did here in Ontario as well - reaching the low 60's!
Love your glass canisters.

Hello Artsymama I like your blog and I love the ornamental paper as well as your glass jar collection. I had just recently bought two of the glass jars I saw in your picture at IKEA here in Germany to use for art supplies in my studio corner. They have had some lovely ornamental wrapping papers too at the moment :D
