Ok, I admit it! I am totally addicted to buying supplies...acceptance is the first step, right? I don't think I'll ever be able to make a profit with my business, because as soon as I get a big sale, I immediately start buying up new supplies. I can't help it...it's so much fun. As you know, I absolutely love vintage supplies so my recent shopping spree this past week includes lots of vintage goodies. This photo shows just a sampling of the supplies I just got. Some of my favorites are the big black and white enameled buttons in the center, and the pressed plastic dangles with the fleur de lis pattern. These are so unusual, I can't wait to figure out what to do with them :) Keep an out out in my shop Out of the Blue to see some of my new supplies being put to good use!

I'll admit my husband's idea of romance is usually polar opposite of what I would like it to be. His idea of affection is a slap on the rear and a not so subtle sexual reference. However, his greatest romantic gesture is bringing home fresh flowers for me once a week. He absolutely LOVES buying flowers!! Sometimes its tulips, sometimes gerber daisies, but most often it is roses. These are the latest ones he brought home...they are a beautiful pale yellow with coral colored tips. They are so pretty! So even though he leans more towards caveman than Casanova most of the time, I always have a sweet reminder of my dear husband every time I look at my fresh bouquets!
