Vintage kid books and Music Playlists

I got some amazing vintage books from "Papa" for Christmas. I love the vintage colors and illustrations. I think I could sit and stare at these for hours. I have recieved most of my collection from him. I have some old "Roy Rogers" and "Howdy Doody" ones that are in my son's room. The colors are just as stunning as ever!
I want to put these on a special shelf in the living room. My daughter has all of the vintage bambi and princess one's in her room.
Oh yes, and I forgot to mention I got a bread making machine for Christmas as well!! Thank you "Emmie and Papa!" I got it all prepped this morning, I just need to get some "bread flour." I realized the regular stuff won't do. I can't wait to make bread like crazy.

I have been doing alot of brainstorming lately. I was lying in bed last night when a whole new world opened up for my embroidered pics. I can't wait to get started. Isn't it the best feeling in the world when you feel like your brain landed on a new fresh idea. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

I have finally started back to my exercise routine this morning. I felt very refreshed. I need to put some new tunes on my mp3 player. I have been really enjoying "Bright Eyes" recently. He is coming out with a new album, he may have by now. Some people aren't into the whole whiney emo sound of Conor Oberst, but I love it.
My husband has such great taste in music. He first got me loving, Joanna Newsome. We have gotten some funny faces when people first hear her voice. I absolutley adore her voice and listening to her play the harp!
What's on your playlist? I love to hear everyone's.

Okay as an embroiderer and crafter I love this commercial. Kevin Bacon is even embroidering in the beginning.

Have a great day!!


  1. I love the whimsical illustrations in this book, very lovely!

  2. My husband and I LOVE that commercial. We laugh at it every time! I always get excited about unexpected crafting appearances in movies and on television. :)
