Parcels in the Post

Still on a buzz from Jessi's Childhood Toys party I started tracking down some books off eBay that I used to have as a child.

I LOVE Enid Blyton and in particularly "The Naughtiest Girl in the School" and won these last week

Also on eBay I found a lovely seller who I brought these french button cards from


see the original 40F price stamped on them!


I also got these stamps from I Am A Diva, couldn't resist Audrey and the I Love Lucy one is for my friend as she's a fan

And of course Barbie ones... these will be a great help when planning and arranging my friends Barbie themed Hen Night!

I also made Lori's son Marc's tag last night


It went off in the post today, I hope she likes it


And I FINALLY got around to making my Baby Shower invitations for my friend


It's so difficult when you don't know what sex the baby will be!
Tomorrow I'm off to visit my friend Bettina from my donut days
I just love the photo of us both!
and then Sunday I have a family birthday so it doesn't look like I'll get round the boot sales but I'm sure I'll fit some thrifting in somewhere... thankfully Bettina is a fan of thrifiting and luckily we have different styles so there's no fighting!!
Hope you all have lovely weekends planned

I am so touched deeply within. Have a blessed weekend, and if you were my daughter as sweet as you are I'd cry for a long time when you leave home!!! Much love and appreciation, Lori

I've been on the hunt for a bunch of old white buttons. Maybe tomorrow at the Pec Thing flea market. The tag turned out great! Wish I did tags but it's not one of my talents =) Blessings... Polly

I am so very taken by your blog from the banner to your posts! Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of my all-time favorite movies -- so I especially enjoyed the stamp! Thanks so much for sharing -- I look forward to reading lots more from you.

XO,
