fun mail

I have always loved and collected vintage wallpaper but lately, I don't know whats come over me...I can't get enough! I've been waiting for some that I ordered from Heather and they came today. Yippee...They are even prettier in person. I just recently got some of these gorgeous velvet millinery flowers also...Some velvet leaves and these green (with a pink hue) velvet strawberries. Couldn't you just die!(My pictures are a bit dark, I know. I guess you would know think that my husband is a photographer!) Isn't this little bunch the sweetest!!?? That little grouping of forget-me-nots at the bottom are in three shades of pink!
I've also been busy making these little boxes for Easter. You would think that I would be finishing more important things like all of the swaps I keep joining but I am easily distracted.
This one....
and this one are my two favorites!
I am going to try and get them listed in my Etsy shop tonight. I am exhausted! I think I forgot what is like having the boys home for a week straight! Yesterday I had a total of eight, yes eight kids here. I kept thinking about Jon and Kate Plus Eight. Do any of you watch that show? I get such a kick out of it! Although I think that Kate has the patience of a saint, I think she should be a little nicer to her husband (at least when the camera is on!)
Tomorrow my husband is taking off and I think we are venturing out to the city (Manhattan). It is suppose to rain and or snow but he's determined to get to a museum or something. I'm hoping to get him to make a pit stop at Tinsel Trading. He usually will park out in front and wait with the boys. If I do go I will try and remember my camera...it really is heavenly in that store!

Those flowers are luscious and your little boxes are adorable! I have not had time to try out the crayon recipe, thank you so much for sending it to me. I plan to try it out this weekend.
