Friday Faves

Friday, January 26, 2018

Evening, y'all!  Here I am nearly out of time for this final Friday of the month, yet again.  I've had my hands super full lately.  Plus, we took advantage of today's warmer weather and spent the day visiting our furry friends at the Kansas City Zoo.  So, I've been playing catch-up this evening; but I'm here, nevertheless, with just a few of the things that have captured my attention throughout the month.  Let's kick things off with a trio of stamp sets from Technique Tuesday.  I'm not usually drawn to cactus images, which kinda stinks, because there seem to be an awful lot of manufacturers being inspired by such lately; but the plethora of A Little Prickly's playful puns sold this set for me.
Actually, the punny sentiments of Funny Farm...
and Clementine the Cow totally put a smile on my face, too.  I love their versatility, not to mention coordinating dies, to boot!
I never would have purchased Citrus Twist Kits' Boardwalk Die-Cuts from this photo; but they came to me in a happy, little, prize package, and I couldn't be any more smitten.  I just love the bold, bright, happy colors!  They're super well-made!  We're not talking those flimsy, tear at the first sign of mixed-media kind of die cut, folks.  AND they're oozing with springtime, which is always a bonus in the middle of the brown, mucky winter.
Sooo, I had a birthday earlier this week; and my hubby got me this gorgeous, Hand-Carved Wooden Sewing Box from Posh Craft Poland.  Eeek!  It reminds me of one my grandma used to have; but my older sister got it, when my grandma passed away.  So, I'm super excited to have one of my own to pass down for generations to come.  That is, after I've gotten to use it again and again and AGAIN.  Swoon!
Finally, I've been a HUGE fan of Polish pottery for quite some time.  I absolutely adore the cobalt blue color integrated into each hand-crafted design; but the expense involved in filling my own cupboards with these stunning creations, has held me back from purchasing them.  I've decided that one piece at a time wouldn't be too much of a burden on our budget, though.  Right, honey ;)?  So, I couldn't resist including this array of beautiful, little cups, from Polmedia Polish Pottery, just for fun.  LOVE!
That covers things for this month, friends.  Thanks so much for peeking, and have a truly amazing weekend!  Mwah!
