I showed a sneak peak yesterday of this corner. It's been a corner of many things in the past year, but I think we're getting closer to something that might last. I had visions of antique wooden boxes stacked in every which way halfway up the wall, but it's not yard sale season, so that idea may have to wait. Enter an old confectionery box from Portland, an antique (but very awesomely painted) tool cupboard recently thrifted, stacked thrifted tins, artwork by all sorts, and a new paper banner the little one and I made today out of origami paper. I love it so far. It's a corner I think will stay for a while. I later added old wooden spools of thread. Yay for new corners!
And mail...what can I say about lovely mail? The little one and I were having a slow morning due to rather early waking. We trekked through town in below zero weather (okay...at least it felt like it with the wind chill!) and came home to a lovely package awaiting us. A vintage book for her, tea cups for us both, vintage fabric, two lovely prints....oh my! Were we spoiled! Thanks Julia...you ROCK! You totally made our day.
And oh, I can't forget this lovely, amazingly crafted snow queen and her baby. This was sent all the way from Europe. The little one has been playing with this non-stop and adores the baby so very much. Gosh, I have the best readers! Thank you all so much for everything!!
I hope you enjoy your weekend! We're looking forward to relaxing, nature walks, hosting a dinner, and just having fun!
