something purple?

OK, well maybe this album is more lavender, but this is a first for me. I am not really the purple kind of girl, but bought this paper because I thought I needed something a little different. And I have to say, I really love it!
I had to stock up on some purple flowers and embellishments cause I really had none, lol! I love this big Prima blossom, yum :o) I picked up this purple ribbon by Martha Stewart on clearance... so beautiful in person!!

I have been obsessed with my pins lately! And have been buying up beads to make them like crazy!!

Lots of pinks and greens mixed in (two of my favorite colors). I added a few doilies in too... this page is so feminine, just makes me happy :o)

If you are interested you can see all the pictures up on ebay here!

Have a great weekend!!

the little things

It really is just the small things in life that make me happy. I have wanted to find a solution to this slider door since we moved in. We had the dreaded vertical blinds mainly because the back of our house gets so much sun in the afternoon. And in the summer in bakes the house! So I found these beautiful drapes at Target on clearance for a mere $7 a panel!! They are this plush velvet like fabric that goes great with our new sofa which is in our family room (just to the right of this picture). What a difference this makes (so wish I had a before picture, but I took the blinds down and then thought of that, sigh). Anyway, thought I would share my little happiness today :o)

Also, I just listed this album last night on ebay. I used the Basic Grey Curio paper line... really gorgeous paper and beautiful colors! This cameo pendant has been in my stash for a while... love the way it looks on the cover :o) If you are interested you can see all the picture here.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

warming up!

Well it is not spring here yet, but it was sunny and warmed up a bit yesterday! A far cry from last week... this is what my backyard looked like after the big snow. The girls loved it, but not our trees so much :o( We thought for sure that some of the branches were going to snap from all the heavy snow and ice. My ten year old thought she would help knock all the snow off these huge trees with her little broom, lol!! So sweet for trying!! Anyway, while I wait for the 70 degree weather, I have been staying indoors and scrapping. I just completed an album to list Wednesday or Thursday night on ebay. I used some new paper from Basic Grey called Curio which I have had in my stash for a few months now. Glad I finally had a chance to use it. As always Basic Grey has such beautiful paper!

Check out this little chunky mini if you are interested on ebay. Only a few more days left on this shabby chic love album!!

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week!!
