^notebook from Urban Outfitters, fabric tape of apples (did i ever tell you my husband-to-be's grandparents owned an apple orchard once upon a time and still have property outside Atlanta? it's where i dream of growing old), beautiful coin purse and because of this post of mine ... Claire sent me these sexy little things from my favorite store to hold up my promise. ooh-la-la! i love you claire xo
^lurved this postcard from Erin who cutely said the review was suited for describing my blog. KISSES!
^Because of my giddiness from this post, Sophie in Australia sent me their version of Robbie Williams' wedding coverage. AWESOME!
^steph drew me a pretty postcard! i am so honored because as long as she's been my twinkie's bff-- it wasn't until this post from her blog challenge that i found out she loved to draw.
^envie of surprises from Courtney! i love mixed tapes and her taste in music (seriously loving this song). And an ELVIS magnet?! oh you can't go wrong. I love the King!
^i ordered these vintage moccs from Mere Trifles hoping it was a true size 7. as hard as i tried, no such luck. I thought of who might have the same taste and size and asked M if her daughter Kenzie would like them. Her beautiful daughter is a fashionista-- i love a girl who shares a love for rompers.
when i saw this gorgeous pic of M's daughter wearing them-- it warmed my heart!
^another postcrossing going to Australia. The girl getting this requested personal photographs. This is a scan from my parent's first house together... it's the jewelry box my pappa gave my mom that she still owns. It was one of the first big gifts he gave her.
^another handmade one going to Belarus. She likes shih-tzus, so of course i had to put this photo of stella on there!
^Kary's little boy Miguelito just turned 7. I'm all about birthdays! i sent him a coffee mug to decorate for his parents and butterfly tattoos to do with his mom (she has a butterfly tattoo that means something personal to her). Home made soap & pocket notebook from our local craft market, summer magnets, and a vintage butterfly tin.
