Pretty Wallpapers from Karla

I ordered some pretty wallpapers from my friend Karla. They are a little more aqua than they show up here...... pinks and aquas, aaaaahhhhh......

She included this bluebird tag she made especially for me! What a lovely surprise!

If you aren't familiar with Karla's work, you must have a look at her beautiful blog. Karla is one of the most creative and talented people I know, and her pictures are always an absolute pleasure to behold. I'd love to see her home in person some day; I'm sure it's absolutely gorgeous! (exciting news; Karla's home will be in some upcoming magazines! :)

I went thrifting yesterday for just a few minutes, and found all these pretty vintage Christmas ornaments for under two dollars.

I especially like these that are unsilvered..... this one has such pretty pink and white stripes.

Christmas will have to wait just a bit longer; however; I have been doing some autumn decorating, of which I'll share pictures very soon.


Oh, and have you seen the latest Country Victorian magazine? I'm especially excited about this issue for two reasons! One, is that my friend Cathy has her adorable pink cottage featured! Cathy is a wonderfully talented decorator, and you'll just love her pink cottage!

The other reason I'm excited about this issue, is that my first-ever ad for my website is in it. This is a big step for me, and it was such a fun moment when I saw my ad in a magazine for the first time! :)

I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I'll share those autumn pics soon, and I'll also be sharing pictures of my entire kitchen in the near future (by request of several of you ~ thank you so much!)

Until next time!!

Hi Becca!!!! I saw your ad in the magazine last night! I was so excited for you and also for Cathy's spotlight! I was just tickled to pieces! I even showed my husband, which I normally don't show him my magazines, but I was so happy for you and Cathy that I just couldn't stand it! Congratulation!!! I think this will be a very successful move for you! Wishing you the very best!

A friend of mine is in that issue too, June's house in Topeka. I'll have to look through it again to see your friend's home.

Glad you liked the papers and the tag! Thanks again!
