I have collected lots of darling, unique, vintage trims and wanted to share them with other crafters. I put these sets together for $10.00.
I made a couple different trim sets to inspire 4th of July crafting.
I also have lots of fun flea market and estate sale finds listed, like these sweet, cottage-y souvenier wall hangings.

This is the love of Annie's life....our new doggie, Meg. Friends of ours had to move to Wisconsin, and didn't want to haul three dogs along. I had mentioned that I would love to have Meg if they ever needed a place for her, and my dream came true. She is a joy! She is so smart and loving!
Also, wanted to mention that I am filling up an etsy shop now with fun and pretty things. If you would like, you may take a peek here. I love to share my fabulous finds with you!!
Off to clean, my friends! Have a wonderful day!! Kristin

Tied for first is this funny thing I bought....a small greenhouse type case that I change out for the seasons. Funny story...I have some Mary Engelbreit special edition books that are about Christmas that I read over and over again. In one of them, there is a case like this. I would think about how I love the look of it and daydream about possibly making one.
So, when I stumbled upon this, I snatched it up for close to nothing.
Here it is in the fall with some old books, cream pottery, and one of my turkey planters I collect. I love to play and just see what looks cute together in there.
Here it is again at Christmas. I love to make a little scene in there with the choir boys singing outside the lit up church. This is one of my favorite things I look forward to setting up when I take out all of the Christmas boxes.
The man I bought it from told me it is made from old windows and that he built it 25 years ago when he and his wife first married. It had been outside in the elements all of that time gaining charm! I was sure lucky that day!
Thanks for listening...I am off to check out your favorite finds now. OH~ and by leaving a comment here today, you will be entered in my blog giveaway for the sweetest doll you have ever seen in your life (in the post below this post).I will be drawing the winner tonight at midnight. Love, Kristin
