Happy 4th of July week! Hope yours is filled with summertime fun with family and friends. I hit a "motherload" of an estate sale this weekend and got some fabulous goodies. This gorgeous oil painting above is now in my living room. It cost the price of a candy bar. The doll clothes below just about made me faint. The red polka dots and that trim. Adorable!!!

This marshmallow tin was just too old and rusty to pass up. Love it! I do have some goodies to share with you. I know you will be thrilled!! Here's a peek....
Check out this AMAZING vintage wallpaper. I am finishing up a really fun kit that I will have in my etsy shop that comes with a huge sheet of it and tons of other vintage goodies. I hope to update the shop in the next day or so. Toodles!

Still in your party clothes with no where to go? Sad the party is over? I'm feeling a little like this lady below. Vanessa hosted the blogland party of the year. Wow! Thanks so much for all of you for visiting my party below. Sure had a grand time. It's just going to take a bit to recover from having so much fun!
We sure danced the night away....
Ate lots of sweets....
Made so many new friends.
Now it's back to crafting.
Thanks for all the fun!!

It's party time!

There's a huge party in blogland, don't be late!!After hosting my blogland tea party back in March of last year, it's so fun to see blog parties popping up every now and then. They are tons of work as a hostess, but so much fun to bring this delightful community together. So come on in for some fun, then head here for an over-the-top explosion of creativity and color at Vanessa's
Mad Hatter Tea Party!
She really outdid herself! WOW! Since you've arrived, please come on in!

A new blue whale..and a swap

This is what blue looked like at our house today.

I now can show you what I gave my partner Heidi for the Parasol, Pink Lemonade and Polka Dot swap. These were her "getting to know you" answers for summertime. Hopefully I gave her some things she liked.

I thought I'd shake things up a bit and update my etsy shop in the evening. It's all list HERE and I'm sure you'll find some treasures. In celebration of blue week for Shades of Inspiration, each of the vintage tin containers of trim in my shop also includes some of my favorite blue vintage millinery, first seen here on these hats. Love these little bundles!
