“..It’s like a cow’s opinion…It’s moo.”
– Joey, from Friends

Oh how I love Friends. Anyway, I know everyone is talking about their Moo cards from flickr, but I have some too and I wanna be in the club.

I ordered a batch of cards from our wedding photos and they are just good old fashion fun. With the panoramic crop its like a whole new set of images. People ask me what I plan to do with them. Um, I don’t know…I haven’t thought that far ahead. I just knew I had to have some.


Show and Tell

February 16, 2007 at 10:35 am | Posted in Look what I found! | 4 Comments

I have been having fun at the antique and thrift stores in my town lately, and thought I would show you a few of my favorite finds – a little Friday Show and Tell:

Painted Horses

These paint-by-number horses caught my eye out of a stack of other paintings. I love the colors and the quality about them.

sound of music

Only like my favorite movie ever!! I was so excited to find this record for only .99 at a thrift store in Burbank. Faith was jealous, until she found another one at different store – for only .50.  Faith:1 Raya:0

plate from england

Serving plate from England. Love the colors.

This pewter heart was at one of the many antique shops on Main St. in Ventura. I have a few pieces of jewelry that I wear daily (wedding rings, a necklace) that I don’t like to wear while I’m sleeping, so this is a perfect bedside table jewelry box.

It is safe to say that I’m all thrifted/antiqued out for this month…It’s kind of become an addiction. Last night I dreamt that I was in a thrift store that was pretty much empty, save for an entire shelf of vintage wallpaper books. I was in heaven!!! Seriously, I did not want to wake up it was that good.  I often have dreams that are so good, I don’t want to wake up because somehow in my dream I know that I’m dreaming and if I wake up it will all go away. On the other hand, if its a bad dream I can make myself wake up and get out of whatever horrible situation I’ve dreamt myself into.  Anyone else do that?

Oh well, we’ll save the dream analysis for later. Have a wonderful weekend!




Calico Madam

Calico fabricsThere is something about calico I have always loved. I think it goes back to Little House on the Prairie, my most favorite books when I was a little girl. The Ingalls girls were ALWAYS wearing calico, and I know that my 1980’s everyday wear seemed much less romantic than Laura’s bonnets and prairie dresses.

While in Phoenix last weekend with Faith I picked up all these fun prints – some are from a great remnant store and a few are old sheets purchased at a thrift store. I can’t wait to make things from them, and looking at all the colors together just makes me happy : )

Brooch Swap!

February 7, 2007 at 8:19 am | Posted in Look what I found!, She's Crafty | 1 Comment

I took part in a super fun brooch swap put on by this lovely lady. She partnered us up and sent us off to find a brooch for our partner, plus any other goodies we thought they might enjoy.


While some chose to make their brooches, I opted for a vintage rhinestone leaf…its was so darling I couldn’t resist..and I’m not really the brooch making type. I filled an old powder tin with other goodies and sent it off to Minnesota on Monday. I hope my brooch partner likes it and I can’t wait to receive mine!
