a Find!
a Win and a new WIP!

a quick trip to the thrift shop resulted in a fantastic find!
three lovely linen covered vintage children books
illustrated by Henriette Willebeek Le Mair
such beautiful drawings...and at $2, im pleased as punch!

and wasnt i a lucky girl this week - i won a giveaway!!
Gorgeous cards from Georgica Designs they arrived in the mail and are really pretty!
i enjoy sending (and receiving) snail mail so these will come in handy!
Thanks so much!!
and lasty a new W.I.P for the cooler months ahead -a ripple crochet cushion cover - i really wanted to make a large throw but i know it'll just take forever so I'll start with a cushion and then maybe...just maybe i'll move onto something bigger next!
Have a Wonderful week everyone - we're driving up the coast tommorow for a few days of relaxation before the boys are back in school.....
