I want to share with you some pretty things that have come into my life recently.

My Aunt Jane made this bag for me as a thank you! It's pink and brown (our wedding colors, if you remember), and the inner dividers can be moved around because they're attached on both sides with Velcro. It's ingenius, practical, and lovely!

My father-in-law gave me some hair clips for my birthday, including this gorgeous one that I'm not sure I can wear to anything less fancy than a wedding. I might feel out of place with jewels in my hair at work. 🙂 Fabulous gift!

As Mom and Jim are dealing with merging two households worth of stuff, I luckily am ending up with the cast-offs (like the Kelly train and the sock monkey). This is a crocheted table scarf (we may repurpose it) that Dad's mom made while she had TB (she also made some table cloths and other stuff, which amounts to about a zillion little crocheted stitches).

Isn't it pretty?

Dad's mom also made this kitchen towel. Mom used it so much that it is no longer usable as a towel, since it has a large hole in the middle. I'm brainstorming things to do with it.

Here's what I bought Saturday at JoAnn's. That would be three linens and two silky prints (the top and bottom one).

And lastly, a peek at what I did over the weekend. The bottom bit there is only pinned on, so you can see I didn't make it very far. I'm hoping to be able to show you a lot more after this weekend.

As an extra bonus, here’s a slideshow of all of the pictures I took on the 4th with my iPhone (OK, took the first one of me).
