Evolving treasures...and interview

I've already picked up some new treasures. This time from etsy. These yarn flowers and beautiful button magnets in yummy candy colors are from twogirlzstuff. I ordered a few different lavender filled satchets and other colorful goodies from Tracy B Designs. I will keep some and give some as gifts. I hadn't bought from her before and I couldn't be more pleased. Her creations are wonderful. Check out these colors and the aroma is intoxicating!


Check out her "puzzle" flowers. So unique!This brooch is going in a special package that I'm putting together.
Thank you all so much for your kind words on my treasure book in the post below. I don't know if I've ever done such a massive project so quickly. I am very passionate about vintage finds and it was such a delight to look at all the photos and organize them in a meaningful way. Some of you have asked about my printing. I print my photos at home on a Canon Pixma iP5000 printer. I used 4x6" Canon glossy paper for this project. I love how it leaves the white border. As you can see, I'm sharing even more photos below because the project has already evolved a bit. I added some more embellishments from my vintage stash and also wrote on all the journaling tags. It's such a quirky book. No rules, no holding back. What fun it was to recall my memories of each sale and any personal history I know about an item. If you recognize any of the items in the book as something that you've purchased from me, I'd love to hear about what you have done with it. Sharing stories about our treasures is even more meaningful and fun!






Also, Diane has an fun interview with me over on her blog today.

Have a great day!

Okay, I'm here to give you accolades, numerous, numerous accolades. I just came across your blog through others and I just love it! I love the color! I love the things you make! I love the artful journals! I especially loved your list of 16 things where you say you run to see your comments just like you ran to the mailbox as a child. How honest and sincere and I love that. We are all human and it is so nice to see you share that part of yourself. I will definitely be back as you are so very inspiring.

Hubby bought me 3 bottles of it the other day! ;-)

LOVE THE BOOK! Saw the page with all the keys. Do you have any of those left to sell? I am looking for skeleton keys for a necklace I am going to make in a class by Diana Frey
