Great finds!


Pam Kellogg of Kitty and Me Designs has created a beautiful
Pink Ribbon CQ Purse for Breast Cancer Awareness.
You can see it HERE and find out more
details about her fundraiser for the cause.


Do you like buttons?
Do you covet buttons?
Do you want to SEE some gorgeous buttons?

Well, Shawkl has just listed a new
shipment of them on her Etsy site.

I saw, and boy do I covet!!

A friend and I spent yesterday poking through four (yes, 4!!) different thrift shops in search of treasures.  I, of course, picked up more denim to tear apart.

and before you get your knickers in a twist, 
I'm fully aware that I'm trying to
downsize my stash and not add to it
In my defense, how could I NOT bring home delicious-looking pockets and design elements for my jackets.  The fact that all that goodness happened to come attached to whole pairs of jeans is just one of those things, right?
I digress...

My big find was a perfect sized cupboard to hold my magazine collection for all of $20 AND this....

Well, actually my 'find' was the hand, the embroidery floss is what I'll be using for my on-line Frankenstitch class with Arlee. 
I really *heart* my hand!!

Maryanne, what is the hand meant to do? is it a ring display? looks quite threatening.

What fun to treasure shop with a friend, and your treasures were wonderful. I heart your hand too :-)

I had to come over from Carole's and check out what your 'hand' was. Very cool! Imagine all the things you could do with that!
