I Found some Recent Finds!

So as I said in my last post, I am unable to go hunting and gathering right now..

But things have been coming to me!
Here are a few recent acquisitions....

THE BEST ever box that my friend Trishy brought up to me when I was in hospital....
The best one I've ever seen..
I LOVE these hand sewn card /picture boxes. This happens to be the coolest kitschiest one I've seen.. and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Too cool.

A for Arlo.. one of my sisters found him this. 

Bibs made by my sister-in-law out of fabric from my mother's stash. The fabrics are VERY familiar to me from when I was a kid. LOVE.
My most recently acquired kid - 2 weeks old now. So sweet.
Got this funky dragon shirt quite recently...It had its first outing at the school disco last night.
Joe and Gil very dedicated to making their hair as straight as possible for the occasion..

Happy Days!

I'll link up to Her Library Adventures. Coz that's how I roll.

I had never seen those card boxes before until Vintage Bird Girl featured hers on her blog. They are cute, aren't they? So are those lovely bibs and the big "A". But nothing can compare to the cuteness of a 2 week old Arlo sleeping! Ahhhh! xxxxx

I love Arlo's name so much, and that he has bibs made from his granny's stash-fabrics were so much coller back then!
