This past week my family took a little trip to Utah to visit some family, Ryan had some work appointments, and I had lots of shopping to do! I came home with a ridiculous amount of stuff....these things were just a few of my favorites....
This truly wasn't even half the stuff I came home with...I think my husband's eyes are still rolling. Mine are still sparkling...I haven't blinked once:)
I HAD to feed my ribbon obsession. I was actually quite proud of myself....I didn't go crazy.;)
I LOVE these wood plaques and picture frames. I can't wait to show you what I am going to do with these. Prepare to be amazed!
Before my trip I was blog stalking and found this tutorial. I was crossing my fingers I would get lucky and find some doilies. I didn't have any luck at the thrift stores or the craft stores. I did find some at the antique shops but they are always so expensive. Luckily, my MIL has very giving friends. My MIL was talking to a good friend who was cleaning some stuff out of her house and she said she had some I could have. Score! These are just some of them. I think I might seriously cry.
So, when I get my amazing table runner done I will post it--so you can be impressed with my awesomeness:)
Ahhhhh, (sigh). While I was busy thrifting I found a bunch of these babies. I am a full blown golden book collector and I found about 30 while on my thrifting/craft spree.
These are just a few of my fav's. I'm really loving the vintage ones.
As a kid I LOVED the Berenstein Bears. (Still do) couldn't say no when I found these at the thrift stores.
So, these have nothing to do with crafts but are these not AMAZING! I found them at Ross. Yes I shop at Ross and am proud of it! These are only I think my 7th pair of red shoes--but who's counting? I mean come on, they are Madden Girl's for goodness sake and I found them at Ross for $18! I don't think Ryan's eyes will stop rolling for a long time when it comes to these. But they were so worth it!
Utah was definitely worth the trip! Make sure to check back to see what I do with some of my finds!
