Be-lated Earth Day...

Hope you did something yesterday to honor the Earth on the 38th Anniversay of Earth Day. We cleaned out the garage with the kids. Believe me, this is quite a feat with the amount of boxes that I accumulate from swaps, etsy, etc. We then took all the cardboard to the recycling facility with the kids so they could see what it was all about. I try to do my own part in re-using by using vintage "treasures" for my crafts that otherwise may be thrown away. I see it as a good thing...for everyone:)
Romantic Homes magazine this month has a beautiful article about Lily of the Valley flowers. These little gems are such a welcome sight in the spring woods. I found a little bundle of vintage Lilies of the Valley from the estate sale last weekend and thought they made a pretty display.

Speaking of which, here are the two sales I will be going to tomorrow morning. Don't they sound wonderful?! Anyone need a personal shopper? hehe.
