I Love Michael's .........

Hey there girls..

Sorry for the long time between posts. Its' been so cloudy here lately that its hard to get some decent photos to share so I haven't been able to get a photo worthy new post up.

The sun finally made an appearance today as I was working at home, so on my lunch break I quickly took some pictures of my latest finds before the sun decided to go into hiding again.

I was at Michael's craft store this past weekend looking for some more crafting supplies when I happened upon an aisle filled with some pretty Paris/French inspired home decor items that I instantly fell in love with. Now, I'm a girl who loves pretty storage boxes so I was thrilled to find some that were just to my liking and they were on sale too. Woot, Woot.. Who wouldn't be happy about that.

These pretty boxes are made to look like books and are about the size of cigar boxes..

Even the "book spine" side of the box is prettily decorated. Perfect if a person wanted to display these on a bookshelf.

Very clever and practical too. I can use these boxes to store some of my scraps of paper that I am using for my crafting projects.

I saw lots more of these pretty Paris/French inspired home decor items that I would love to have, but I was a good girl and only bought a few, limiting myself to pieces which I knew I had room for and which I could use in practical way for storage.

With Blogland all awash in French inspired art and decor, I have a feeling that once those French themed loving bloggers realize what their local Michael's stores have in stock, these items will disappear very quickly, so if you're hankering for a few of your own, you'd best hurry to Michael's and see what you can find for yourself before they are all gone.

In addition to doing a little bit of shopping, I've continued to keep myself occupied during some of my free time by creating a few more Shabby themed scrap paper/decoupaged wall hangings. I'll share my newest creations with you later in the week.

Until then, have a great week.

See you soon!!
