Welcome March!

To welcome the spring season I splurged on some vintage bangles on Etsy. The red one is bakelite and is deliciously red. I just *had* to have them. The fact that the seller is from Buffalo (my hometown) sealed the deal. I figure they'll be great with all the spring fashions I have dancing around in my head. That is, *if* I can ever get to sewing! ;)


Friday was a good thrift day! I found these cute vintage place mats. The material is bark cloth-like and printed with fruits. Super cute. Unfortunately, there were only 2.

I also found a vintage-inspired bow pin. Not sure when the piece is from but the price fit the budget and I figure it will look sweet on a spring dress. :)
I can never have too many baskets! I snagged this one for a buck and now my WIP (namely cross stitch) are sitting inside.
Here's the spread including an adorable plate from Germany featuring a schnauzer (sp?). It was too cute to pass up!
The other day I snapped this cuddly kitty photo. Tex and Harry napping up against one of my craft/sewing carts. Now if I could only get them to start making the muslins for some spring dresses! ;) LOL
Happy weekend peeps! What are you up to?

Nice bracelets! I have been trying to relax this weekend... some shopping, some cooking and some lounging. Delightful!

Sounds wonderful! I hope you got plenty of all it it! I just wish there was more time in the weekend. How'd it get to be Sunday night already?

Great purchases, Laura! I particularly love the bow pin! How cute is that?! I still haven't had the chance to go to yard sales, but I'm looking forward to it ... I should do it when I have money, anyway, hehe.

Tex and Harry look so cute! >*.*< Did you adopt both of them at the same time? Dimitri and Dante don't seem to want to play or spend time together :/. They told me it'd take some time, but I have the feeling they'll never get any closer than this. Did you have to force them be together in the beginning (in the case they were adopted at different times, of course)?

Hope you're having a nice week! ;)
