My totally random birthday shopping spree!!!



I just have to share a few of my birthday finds with you!
I had my dear sewing machine looked at by the tech at
The Scarlet Thread quilt shop in McDonough, GA
He was such an angel....
he adjusted a teeny little thing as my bobbin
was catching a little bit and shouldn't have.
Anyway, he saw what needed to be done and POOF it was fixed!!!!


I thanked him ever so much, he told me no charge and
insisted on giving me a tiny birthday gift of fabric,
how wonderful is THAT???
And of course the quilt shop was so amazing...
I ended up spending a little birthday money there!!!

Here is a shot of some of my goodies!
I had to hit our local Goodwill and found the wonderful set of Little House books!



I found more rhinestone goodness at Michael's and of course a new bottle of Fabri-tac,
MY MOST FAVORITE GLUE EVER!
And the tiny fabric squares from the quilt store are so very beautiful.
But I do not quilt!
Who cares?
I will use these to create sweet lavender sachets.....






I found this wonderful Laura Ashley rose scented lotion today too!




I found this sweet, old children's dictionary at the thrift too!
Great images, and tons of illustrations...








I don't think you can truly see the shade of the blanket I found for our bed...
It is the palest shade of Robin's egg blue EVER!!!
It's been so cold here in Georgia...
I can't wait to get this wonderful goodness on our bed!!!




A few new ink pads and the most wonderful stamps too!





Most of  my pics from Christmas are just horrible!!
Bad lighting...etc....etc.
But I do have to share these sweet photos!
Clara and her sweet cousin Brant eating together at the baby table Christmas day ~







Wishing you a wonderful Thursday precious friends!
hugs and love,
Dawn

I always place Valentines out after storing Christmas and cleaning the corner... enjoy this week...

Oh-I love those fabric squares. I picked up a set of those books not too long ago, too, at a garage sale. My 9 year old granddaughter is loving reading them.
You littles are so sweet all set for Christmas- xo Diana

Vee said...

I thought just before I saw your photo of goodies...Bet she bought lots of crafting delights! Glad to see that I was a little wrong. You're so going to love the fleece blanket...nothing is so warm and cozy as fleece. (John gave me a fleece nighty and now I stick to the fleece sheets as if I had be fabri-tacked.)

Cute Clara with her little cousin...lots of sweet memories.

It sounds like you had a wonderful day and came home with fun new toys! So delightful!
The fabric charm pack is beautiful - who can resist something called "Paris Flea Market?"
Your little ones are darling. Hope today is wonderful for you.

Hi Dawn, Great finds. My favorite Little House book is
The Long Winter. I read it every year around this time. When the winds are blowing outside, I try to imagine what it would have been like to live in that time...and am grateful for a furnace and fireplace! Why don't you quilt? Seeing your beautiful sewing, you have all the skills you need. Love those Moda fabrics...like a kid in a candy store! Happy New Year dear friend. Love, Penny

Lisa said...

Oh! Happy Birthday Dawn! Can't wait to see what you create with your goodies. :)

Sherry at The Rusty Pearl said...
