Things That Make Me Happy......

Just a few things that are making me happy today...

Some pretty vintage postcards I found at the antique shop yesterday.....

A charming little vintage advertisement featuring a little girl holding a bunch of flowers in her apron.....

A vintage card with lovely shading on the rose floral design...

Three "Le Chic" Button Cards with some lovely buttons in the perfect shade of blue ...

And these totally awesome packs of paper flowers I discovered at Archiver's when I stopped in there yesterday to pick up a plastic storage bin... So pretty!!

I don't even scrapbook, except for my decorating scrapbooks, but I could spend a fortune in Archiver's if I purchased all the beautiful papers and embellishments they have in the store and which I just love. Such eye candy, that's for sure.

Even though I may not do any real scrapbooking or do much crafting either, I still love to collect bits and pieces of pretty papers, buttons, ribbons, flowers and other embellishments just to have sitting around so I can enjoy their beauty everyday.

Another thing that is making me very, very happy today is the beautiful sunshine, bright blue skies and warmer temps that have finally return to Minnesota. A perfect way to start out the weekend.

What's making you happy today?

Hey! We just got back from 4 1/2 hours of yard saling (annual Community Yard Sale today!) We got a trunk full of stuff and spent practically nothing.

One thing I picked up is a vintage Alpine Christmas Village that'll look great with some bottle brush trees.

I LOVE Me some old stuff!
