Vintage Thingies Thursday ~ Mirrors

For a while (aka until I ran out of room) I collected vintage mirrors. I have them all around the house. In the hall, I stacked 3 mirrors in a vertical line, and they make a great full length mirror! Some are just leaning on top of furniture. I bought them with the intent of re-selling them, but, well you know the story...
Find more vintage thingies every Thursday at Colorado Lady's blog!

Last week I got this cute package in the mail from one of my new blog buddies, Christine over at The Tin Can Cottage. I managed to take this photo before I torn it open! She had posted a giveaway for lurkers who read her blog but never comment. Sometimes you need chocolate, sometimes you need solitude, and sometimes you need a friend, but sometimes you just NEED to know WHO is out there reading your blog!!! I get that. So I left a comment, introduced myself, and the next thing I know, here comes this package with a beautiful poem about friendship, and two colorful lumps of tissue. Inside the tissue are these darling dollies that she made (who are completely oblivious to the fact that their hair needs some deep conditioning and a comb-through), flowers in hand, wearing little calico dresses with their aprons tied 'round their waists, ready to get to get down to the task of spreading smiles.
I barely had time to read the wording on their little pedestals (it says "blogger gal") and--yes, I'll admit it--peek under their dresses before they did just that!

Last time I saw them they were headed hand in pipe-cleaner hand inside the Little Pink House to spread some more cheer (and hopefully do the dishes--it's a mess in there!)

Mary, Queen of Lots!

I made this crown a few weeks ago for my future sister-in-law's (the wedding's coming up soon!) birthday. It's soft, yet strong and lots of fun, just like HER! Can't wrong with gold, silver and fluff, I say!

Ain't she a DOLL? She's the little sister I never had, but somehow she's now just as OLD as me!
