Blogging time

This has been a busy week but then aren't they all?? I love blogging and I have made so many new friends I wish I had more time to spend visiting and posting. I don't know how you all find the time to blog everyday and post blogs as well! I have to MAKE myself not do it so I can get my other stuff done, like work! lol
This wonderful cherry bag was sent to me by the sweetest blog friend~ Michelle at Vintage Pistache Isn't it darling!!! She was so kind to send it to me because of my love of cherries~You remember that cherry camper of mine??:-) What surprise to find at the post office waiting for me! Just like Christmas!! She even packed it in matching tissue paper. That is great since I am such a color junky. I have to use mugs/cups for my tea and coffee to match what I am wearing. (I am baaaaaad on color coordination, sort of an obssession I think lol)

These are the cutest Halloween cards that are vintage inspired. I found them at Barnes and Noble~a box of 24 for only $6.95~What a deal! I love to mail out cards the old fashioned way.
I can not believe that the end of October is almost here! I will have to be digging out Christmas decorations soon to put out in the store! And I am NOT ready to Christmas shop. But I am ready to see all my vintage Christmas decorations! I like to get them out early so I can enjoy them as long as possible

This is a black and white toile lampshade that I finished up this week. I have a thing lately for black and white. Not really sure why that is. I wish I had more time to make these, I have so many designs and ideas. That goes for all my other projects too.

***NOTE***I am planning to do a give away and will be doing a post on it over the weekend so check back!!!
Happy Friday to all!!

What a beautiful lamp shade! I'm doing a little black and white thing myself of late. I find so many inspirational ideas in blogland and just not enough time. I am going to pop over to Barnes and Noble though because that card set is fantastic!

Happy Friday,

I am a freak about color coordination too. My shoes have to match something else I am wearing. That's probably why I have 10 pairs of converse tennis shoes in different colors. ha ha What a pretty purse you got from Michelle. Love the cherries!

Love The Lamp Shade, The Vintage Cards are Wonderful and The Cherry Bag too cute. I can't belive the Holidays are so soon either, I'm starting an Etsy store soon, just in time for the holiday Season, any advice?

Isn't Michelle such a sweetie?! She's hysterical. Thanks for the encouragment with my box of inspiration =) I'm going to keep adding to it and then list what I have ready on Tuesday. Who knows, maybe someone will enjoy it. I feel more like shopping today than crafting though =) But I'm looking forward to snuggling up with baby #4 tonight. Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...
