Happy Birthday to The Hubbums!!!! And My Cute New Old Purse...

I just want to with my fabulous Hubbums a super happy birthday!!! 

And...I wanted to do a quick post today to ....

A.  Remind you of the fabulous giveaway posted on Friday...go check it out!!!
B.  Remind you to enter my Creativity for Kids Giveaway!
C.  Tell you that LOTS of unpacking happened over the weekend and I pretty much have a studio back.
D.  Announce the Winner of my Christopher Pines Seam  Binding Giveaway!  That would be PATTI!!!!!  Patti, please email me with your contact info so I can have that awesomeness sent your way!
E.  Show you my super cute new old purse!!!  (Wow...that was lots of letters.  Hmmm...lots going on!  HA!)

No...you didn't read that wrong.  It's new to me, but I got it at the little thrift shop down the street from my office for a grand total of 50 cents.  I KNOW...I'm SUCH a big spender!  HA!  It was a splurge, what can I say!  HA!

Thrift Store Purse

Above you see the super cute all on it's own purse that I got at the thrift store for 50 cents.  I love it!  It's super cute and a nice medium size.  It has a small red mark on the front that I think will come off with a dab of hairspray, as I happen to know that it is Sharpie.  I just haven't got that far yet...something about emptying boxes in every spare moment I had!  HA!

Purple Flower Brooch

And here you see an absolutely BEAUTIFULLY crafted brooch clippy thing from the fabulous Emmamaha.  I won this in a giveaway and it is JUST STUNNING!  The craftsmanship is some of the best I have ever seen.  Not even kidding.  It is beautifully crafted.  And HEAVY, which is why when I tried to attach it to a rather flimsy headband I found that it didn't work so well, but because I absolutely adore it, I had to find a great way to display it quickly.  Hmmmmm......  Enter the new old purse I got for 50 cents.

My New Old Purse!

Ummmm...yeah.  So, is that not now the CUTEST STINKING PURSE ON THE ENTIRE PLANET????  Let me answer that one for you...yup.  It is.  Just say'n.  I am SO excited!  The two look like they were MADE for each other (only decades apart and stuff!  FUN!!!!) !  I absolutely adore it and I am so super excited and I just had to share it with all of you!!!! 

So....thanks for stopping by....please leave a comment!  They make me smile!  Just say'n!

Jingle Out.

HA!!!!  Yup.  It's totally a 'Jingle Out' kinda day.  Some days just need that kind of hilarity!  HA!
