A Little of This, A Little of That and an Etsy Sale

I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! Matt and I are having a very relaxing one. We've been lounging around, reading in the park, watching movies and just generally being lazy. Nothing too exciting. It's nice to have a weekend to do nothing sometimes:)
I wanted to share a few new fun things I picked up on our trip.  My original goal was to find at least one old suitcase for Matt's nightstand project... Needless to say, I didn't reach my goal. Actually I found a lot of cool old suitcases, but none that weren't outrageously expensive. Oh well, the search continues!
I found this pretty doily in a town called Orange just north of Anaheim. It was a dollar. I think I might use it for this market bag project I am going to be starting soon!
I also got this lovely little dessert plate in Orange. I might hang it on a wall. I don't know for sure. I just liked it:)
I'm not big on souvenirs from theme parks but I loved this teacup! Isn't it adorable? It's nice to have a little keepsake right? :)
While I was at it I got this magnet because it's adorable. I'll eventually put a picture of us in Disneyland in there when I get some printed out.
I also got this old map in Monterey. I'm thinking about doing a few framed old maps in our bedroom. Matt loves maps. I loved this one in particular because of the colors:)

Also, all the hats at my Etsy Shop are now 20% off until July 14th! Now only $32.00 each. That's $8.00 off! Be sure and stop by:)


  1. I'm drooling over all the little treasures you found! I especially love the pink rose plate and the map! I love maps and I have been on the lookout for a good old one too. I think the doily would look great on the Junk bag. Great finds! Glad you guys had a nice relaxing weekend. Love, Mona

  2. What a pretty doily. I love the blue flower!! I really love the plate and your teacup from your trip. That plate will look good hanging in your kitchen! I need to make another trip to Davis. I'm missing you, Matt and Oliver.

    P.S. By the way, Kris loved the hat you made for the baby!! It was a big hit!!

  3. Hi there! I must say I love that map too! I've been trying to figure out what to do in our bedroom as it is painted yellow and I think a few maps like this would be awesome so thanks for the idea girlly! - I love your hats, you are so crafty!
    Happy Day, The Lady of the House
