After making all my new purses I was in need of a place to store them all along with all their adornments. So I cleaned out a vintage suitcase that I got a thrift shops a few years ago and I stored them inside.
Here is my suitcase.
Inside are my purses.
Isn't it perfect!
Big difference isn't it? The best thing is I did not throw away all that wood.
Love a tree - RECYCLE AND REUSE!!!!!
A special thank you to my son Chris for working so hard on this for me.
It could not happen without his hard work.
Okay now back to the Girly stuff. I found some makeup awhile back that I really love. So I had something to return to the store today and they gave me a gift card. You know how it is when you have lost your receipt. Well that was okay with me. I headed straight to that makeup I love and I finally got myself a few things. I got a kit, blush and lipstick.
"CRUELTY FREE MAKEUP"
My lipstick is called "Marshmallow Bunny"!!! How sweet is that? The blush is a perfect pink that I have been looking for everywhere and I finally found it. It is called "Sweet Pink". Then I got the "Glamour To Go" that has everything a girl needs all in one beautiful case that fits in your purse.
YAY me, Score!!!!
The best part is that Too Faced does not use any animals to make their products nor do they do testing on animals. I try very hard to make sure I do not use any makeup that has animal bi-products in it.
Oh and I found the little canvas bag with a crown on it at Michael's Craft Store. It was only $2.00 and oh so cute. I think I may stamp my name on it and glam it up a little but what an awesome find!
This past weekend my girls and I went to the Riverwalk in San Antonio. We are working on our "Bucket List" of things we want to do or do again before we leave Texas. I took some photos while we where there and one of them I wanted to share. It came out so beautiful and I love the small beautiful things in life. You know, those magnificent things that others may pass by and never give a second thought to. This photo speaks to me of beauty and grace and all things wonderful.
This photo has not been edited in any way.
It came out lovely all on it's on.
I now know that this is a Trumpet Vine.
Thank you Doni!!!!
And here I am standing next to the River.
Wearing lace of course....
I am so very thankful that I have been feeling well lately. I love doing things with my girls and crafting and getting caught up on all the things I get behind on.
I saw a commercial the other day and it was about living a "maybe life". It hit home with me because I often feel that I live a maybe life. I can not commit to anything that requires that I be somewhere at a certain time, on a certain date. I never know how I will feel when the time comes. I have to live a more spontaneous life. I do things when I can and this week I have been very blessed. I took my girls out several times and I manage to get out and do some fun things. I also manage to get some crafting and sewing in and clean my house up. I even worked in the yard with my son on the fence. All in all, it has been a great week!
I am happy and blessed.
See you soon,
