Vacation means I don't go to the office, it absolutely doesn't mean I stop junking! The little pile above is from the VOA. Laurie and Danielle, I think THIS pair of shoes finally fits my fat-footed little walking doll - yay! I didn't care for the pink cabs on top of the two treasure boxes but thought they would be cute filled with buttons. I re-colored the cabs with alcohol ink and one is now cranberry and the other one purple.
A few pretty buttons I forgot to show you.
We just got back from the beach last night and these goodies were from several places including the Lincoln City Goodwill store. What, everybody doesn't stop at Goodwill when they are traveling??
Sorry these pictures are so poor. I took them after we got home last night and was apparently too tired to take a decent picture. I really scored on a huge poke sack of ribbons so that motivated me to pull the empty spools off my ribbon storage to make room for new.
I know this is a wacky vacation picture! We like to stay at the Ester Lee Cottages when we are in Lincoln City. They are old, probably built in the 40s or 50s, and still have a lot of the old-school beach vibe. I thought this pink and mint green bathroom was so adorable I had to show you. Probably not a color combination I would choose in my home but perfect at the beach!
And lastly, some pretty pink flowers growing outside a place where we stopped for breakfast. The leaves remind me of Coral Bells but those flowers are completely different. Does anyone know what they are??
Today I am trying to stay motivated to get a bunch of Etsy listing done so I can make some room on my workbench to actually do some projects - imagine!
