Loveliness

Surrounded by loveliness lately--and enjoying it:)

I made this page below for the Crate Paper sketch challenge. It was a challenge indeed, since I realized I only had two pieces of Pink Plum paper and some chipboard left! I really use my Crate Paper:)The journaling reads: There is nothing more lovely than running into old friends. I had fun with this page!

And now for some more loveliness..... while in Boston, I came across a store called the Paper Source. I was immediately intrigued, but I saw it on Shabbos, so I waited until Sunday to go in. And good thing, because I alsmost had a coronary!

So much vintage, feminine, crafty and home decor. So many beautiful, beautiful things. Even the display cases were vintage and beautiful.

Here's a few photos I snapped:



They even have a huge inspiration board up!

And finally, some lovely new tops I got from Ann Taylor with birthday money (thanks, Mom!)--so lovely I have to make myself actually wear them!




What's lovely on YOUR Labor Day weekend?
