Happy New Year 2012!

Happy New Year!!!

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful start to the New Year!

I started off the New Year by taking a trip to the local antique co-op with some of my children. Many vendors have great sales this time of year, and I went to look for an old bookcase for our livingroom...

Not only did I find a GORGEOUS vintage 1930's bookcase (for $75!), but I found bags of antique silk and Victorian laces... all for $9! Be still my vintage-lovin' heart!

So I've resolved to start making my vintage linens and trims journals once again, as I did in 2010 (and sold them in my etsy shop). I've posted some of my old journals here.

One bag of Victorian silks contained all beautiful RED SILK RIBBONS! Perfect for upcoming Valentine's Day journals. ;)

It's actually hard to start talking Valentine's Day, when I'm still in the middle of packing away all our Christmas ornaments and decorations!

I've also joined PINTEREST! Once I get my links all working, I'll post my Pinterest page here on my blog.
Happy Monday!
