As soon as I saw this ribbon at Michael's I knew it was coming home with me. I looooooooove the look of the cut-outs against the solid colored paper. I also found a cute moose ribbon in my ribbon box and I thought the two were perfect together. Now I am finally done wrapping and I love to sit back and look at them all in a big pile. So take a moment to breathe and enjoy the beauty as you wrap things up this year!

I have been waiting over a year to blog about this beautiful red and white embroidery I bought at the Springfield Antique Show. You know how it goes...you buy something and think, "I'm going to frame this!" And then it sits in a pile for years. But I treated myself and finally had it framed last month. I hung it in our yellow guest room with the red and white striped bedspreads and I love it!
Check out the cute llamas and birds!

These "babushkups" have been sitting on my desk for a year waiting to be photographed. I bought them a year ago at Sur la Table as a gift for myself and my sister-in-law. They are the kind of thing that I love so much I'm not sure if I can use them. It reminds me of when I buy tablecloths at the flea market. When they are stained I feel free to use the heck out of them and I get a lot of enjoyment from them. But when they are pristine they end up stacked on a shelf in the cupboard never to be seen. I guess the best way to appreciate something is to use it. I may use them as pencil holders or I may just bite the bullet and use them as drinking glasses! Crazy, I know.
