I woke up this morning, the sun was shining and I decided to make homemade danish for breakfast. Turned out pretty tasty! Lemon and cherry - perfect with a cup of hazelnut coffee (I actually drank the whole cup!!).

Have a WONDERFUL weekend, y'all!!

Vintage Ephemera Swap

I've started a swap group over at flickr for vintage ephemera.
For those who don't know, ephemera is basically anything that was meant to be thrown away or used temporarily - postcards, tickets, stamps, pictures, pages from a book or magazine, sheet music, labels, cards, wallpaper, game pieces...
If you're interested, check it out at

It's All About Me!

Well, it's not actually "about" me! It's all about my swap partner debbi. I put together all these goodies for her swap on swap-bot (

I had picked up a bunch of old cookbooks at an antique mall in Mesa, AZ and I was really excited to be able to use bits of one on the box and tag garland! I threw in the ring pincushion for fun!

Here's my attempt at making a tag garland/banner.

So, I've finally done it! I've given in to peer pressure and started my own blog! Who'll read it? Probably NO ONE. Is it just one more way for me to avoid doing housework? YES!!!!
Anyway, I'm still trying to figure this thing out, so give me a bit to make everything pretty.
