Last week was one of those special mail weeks. I had ordered one of Karla's beautiful charms with a hand painted rose. I have wanted one of these for awhile now. I also ordered three of the oval pieces of wallpaper with hand painted rose, cupcake and fairy. They are exquisite in person.
And...the extras she put in with the order, a beautiful K tag, it is so sweet. plus vintage buttons and the blank tags to make my own special tags or bookmarks. I loved how she wrapped some of the items in a page from an old garden book. Thank you Karla for a lovely package. I am so happy.
The next special mail day was the three books I ordered. They are all wonderful books and I can't stop reading them. Unfortunately, I sometimes read them in bed and then can't sleep because my mind just won't shut down
The first is; Fanciful Paper Flowers by Sandra Evertson, It is just an amazing book and the directions are very clear and concise. A nice companion to go along with Fanciful Paper Projects.
Next; Vintage Paper Crafts by Anna Corba. This book is filled with wonderful eye candy and beautiful paper projects.
Last; Vintage Christmas Crafts by Sara Toliver. She has chapters on Vintage, Victorian, and Shabby. The book is full of glitter and wonderful decorating ideas. There are also instructions for a multitude of Glitter houses.

The French-Inspired Home by Kaari Meng
