doing,buying,noticing

A few snaps from the past week (that went fast).

*Went to an antique flea market and found a yo-yo quilt which was so cute, had to try to make a yo yo. they are so fun and super easy. I see more of these in my future.
*Antique doily and embroidered runners purchased at the flea market. Such pretty work.
*My little guy had his first day of school and it went well (except he already lost his lunch box). A bit hard on me and his sis but we are adjusting.
*Fall is really fast approaching. Sad to see summer go and a bit excited too!
*Some scrappy cards made after reading Denyse Schmidts book
*I also made the oven mitt in the book however I can't seem to find the photo that I took.
I will have to show  you another time. I was really proud of myself. It is the first "thing" I have ever made!
I will let you know what I am doing with it and the scrappy cards in another post. It makes me happy to think about it!

This is all such great stuff! Little boy in school! Hope he loves it. And I hope you found the lunchbox. Now I am thinking maybe oven mitts for holiday gifts? Were they reasonably easy?

Love your shots from the week-fall finds, first day of school, quilt cards! I have heard yo-yo's are addicting!
Peace, Angela

Hi! What a lovely collage of sweet pictures, so simply conveying where you are right now in time and life. You have such a skill for collage work, I love your new blog banner!
Quick question, do you know why I can't subscribe to your blog's RSS feed? Maybe it is a problem on my end.
The interview is done and I'm just fine tuning (read: getting husband's input:) and then I'll get to you by email tonight.
