to buy ... to give-away™

happythings
described
a cool way
to alter
your photos...
i did this:

with this photo.
i love how it
looks
like
a landscape.

i did not
make it
to the village
last friday.
i was so busy
at school
that it wasn't
meant to be...
but
i stopped
by on
saturday morning
on the way
to school
and this
is what i found:

here are my finds
for saturday:


1. skirt pattern

i have some
fantasy
that i will
get around
to making skirts
this summer.
maybe
with the
help of my
sewing pal,
joan,
i will.

2. buttons

did i mention
that i am
crazy
about
vintage buttons?

3. canvas bag

i am collecting
blank
canvas bags
for
joan and my
tata box
project.
stay tuned.

4. more baby clothes

yes,
i am in
full-aunty-mode
for baby x
(my brother's term).
cute green
outfit
with
caterpillars
on it (!!!)
and other
accessories
like
diaper covers.
check out
this
rad
(did i say that?!)
american apparel
monkey top
i found!

have you
seen
lisa's
cute
baby tees
in her shop!

weekends
are always
cleaned out
at the village.
that's why
i usually go
pre-weekend
shopping.

it's the end
of monday
but i do
have some
quick items
for a late
monday
give-away™...

please check here
for
the great monday
give-away™ guidelines.

until
further notice
i am asking
that you
please
pay
shipping
.
sorry,
i kind of...um...
blew
my budget
for
the next
few months
on shipping...
items are usually
under $3
to ship
in the usa.

check here
for other
monday give-aways!

the great monday give-away™:

1. more yarn taken!!!

this is
very course yarn
but would
be great
for

felted bowls,
gift ribbon,
and
such.

of orange.

2. vintage glassware taken!!!

set of 3
cocktail/cordial
glasses.
50s in style.

3. vintage green koret wrap skirt taken!!!

So sad to see the cocktail glasses go... I have fond memories of dazzling the Kiddo with scary 80's sequins while you showed me the wonders of the Village which included the glasses (weren't they each marked a different price?).

hi i was just wondering if you ever sent me the yellow + orange swap because i haven't recieved anything.. :( anyway if not just let me know.. i've moved and have a new address so if you can email me for it, that'd be great.
