I Just Bought Myself Some Great Items From!

My Christmas stocking is a beautiful and precious stocking. It was made 37 years ago by my mom's Great Aunt Eva, who is no longer with us. It was for my first Christmas, and is pink and white with a "toy mobile" on it...done in felt and sequins and embroidery floss and beads, and braids. I LOVE it! But alas, it has gotten more fragile with each passing year, so I decided to retire it, so that it wouldn't completely disintegrate.

So what did I do? I purchased a gorgeous handmade stocking from BarbarasCrafts on What do you think?

While I was on last night, I also was flipping through the cool new device on Etsy, called "Pounce". I was having WAY too much fun looking at things! I found these fun magnets that I can use on my overcrowded and outdated refrigerator. I need to spice things up a little. After all, we live in a small apartment with an even smaller and very crowded kitchen. Our cabinets are just Colonial White. We can't paint them. Our refrigerator guessed it...Colonial White, or at least some color close to that...maybe it's Almond or Eggshell, or Colonial Almond Eggshell! Anyways, I wanted some new fridge magnets, and when I found these from MissChief, and at such a great price, I just HAD to get them!!!

Well, thanks for looking and God bless!
