doing some rearranging today..

most of my softies. i got ALOT of them in swaps! aren't they adorable!

a few more softies. vintage boxes and hats too.

yesterday's mail

yesterday this wonderful book arrived. i'm kinda obsessed with victorian celluloid boxes.. not that i have alot..i just like looking at them. there is something about the shape or them and the flowers and the victorian pictures that i can't get enough of. so when i discovered this book celluloid treasures of the victorian era..i had to have it. and i got it on ebay for less than 1/2 price too. it is filled with hundreds of celluloid boxes, photo albums and more. so fun!

today's mail!

i got some very fun mail today! these are from FairRosamund again who i am really loving her cute girls have such dreamy sweet expressions!

this one was on my favorites list on etsy and she sent it as a surprise gift! i was so surprised and happy when i saw it in my envelope!

and this is an original painting. i've always loved mermaids. i have having a totally rotten day.. mikey was crying all day and hadn't slept through the night in weeks. so i was on etsy all stressed out and saw this. something about her made me smile and feel better.. so i had to have her. and she is even more adorable in person.
so thank you Lauren! your paintings have the power to brighten my day!

liberty of london clearance!

i had been waiting patiently for these to go on clearance.. and there were stacks of them at my closest target so i wasn't worried that they'd sell out. finally they were marked down so i got three. i love that they are washable and anyone who knows me.. know i love flowers! i may get a couple more things before they are gone.

this one reverses from big to small flowers.

and these are both soft velvet on the back.
