Wow!
I am one lucky girl!!!!!


A treasure- trove of delightful items.




My wonderful Tussie Mussie came today and it is fantastic, filled to the brim with a delightful treasure trove of things. My swap partner
Scrappy Jessi out did herself .. It is decorated with miniature Victoria magazine covers. I wish I could get a better picture of this Tussie...my pictures don't do this wonderful TM justice. I finally hung it in my bathroom on an antique baby dress and was able to get some pictures....but still not great.... Jessi you are the greatest and I love my Tussie mussie, it's so lovely... Thank you so much!

Creamer of Buttons

I love the colors of these buttons, I often glance up at them as I pass through my kitchen. Butterscotch bakelite, butter yellow and creamy gold buttons all put into an old glass creamer. It's funny how something so small can give so much in
daily pleasure. I guess that is why we surround ourselves with things we love.
