5.8.07


Meet my lovely new inkpad basket. :)
The best part? $3.99 at Goodwill.
And I picked up this little orange velvet birdie at Uncommon Objects today. He's now perched on top of my silver clip on desk lamp.

Speaking of Uncommon Objects......
Hey, Austin friends! who would be interested in an all-day crop and trip to south Congress to eat lunch and junk shop? I'm thinking of having one at my house in July.
Oh, BLACKBERRIES are in season and very cheap right now. (I'm talking the fruit...not the electronic device) Get some and make a cobbler or some muffins! I bought 5 pints today and my nephew ate an entire pint in 5 minutes. :D
God bless you today!

"Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries."

More fun pretties for your already fun scrap room, I love it! I'm hoping I'd be able to drive up this summer for your fun day since we're only an hour apart. :-)

Oooo, crop and shop! I would love to be there but we are out of town most of July.

If you were on SoCo around 1pm on Tuesday, that scary white Suburban screeching into Hill Country Weavers was me. Yep, went to my crack house again for a fix of yarn. So now I'm tweaking! squeeeee!

I read your blog and have enjoyed some of your past posts that I would like to go back and visit :) but I don't see an archive area to access them on your sidebar...am I missing something or do you not have one? Just wondering...

Jennifer said...

Oh, I wish we were still close to Austin, I would definitely come for a crop and shop! :-) Love that basket, BTW, such a great place for storing ink.
