Hello my friends, welcome! I almost titled this post "Retail Therapy". :-) We went shopping at Costco yesterday and when I saw these mixed tulips I snatched them right up. Aren't they pretty? I love the different colors.
Do you like bouquets all one color or mixed?
I just went back to my studio/creative space/
Ahhh.. the internet. And eBay... I was looking at restaurant "ware" collectibles the other day and remembered that I had always wanted a piece of railroad dining car china.. and of course Dayle worked for Southern Pacific Railroad as an engineer for 30+ years... click..click.. oh.. lookie.. a darling little creamer for only $15.. click click.. enter bid.. no one bids against me.. BINGO.. click, pay.. wait.. and it arrived yesterday. Isn't it cute? It's tiny.. I can't wait to put a bouquet of Lily-of-the-Valley in it or some other posies.
Then.. you know how it is.. I was reading the blog "Angry Chicken" and Amy had made her own leather covered journals styled after the "Midori" brand books. So, click.. click.. oh.. look.. I need one of those in passport size for my trip to New Orleans.. you know, to keep a journal of the trip. Right? It came in this cool craft paper cover, with a unbleached muslin bag. *love*
All set to go. I love how it's small and thin and compact.
I'm totally back into using my fountain pens all the time. When I go to meetings, I use them for my notes. I also use them for all my cards and letters I send. If you've never used or had a fountain pen, you really should treat yourself to one.
I got the Midori book on the website "Jet Pens" and I saw that they had little tiny bottles of ink in wonderful colors - they are inexpensive so you can try different colors. This color is called "Moon Dust Purple". :-)
And as I was perusing (clicking like a maniac) through JetPens I found a nice soft and pretty roll-up fountain pen holder that I needed to protect my pen collection.
The sun is shining into the dining room and illuminating the tulips - I hope it keeps shining when I go swimming this afternoon. The pool is so pretty in the sun. Are you having a good week? I hope so! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
