So me and my hubster went out looking for houses for sale (even though we can view most of them online) driving sounded fun....

All of sudden we passed this neon green sign for an antique sale!! Wooo my husband said dont you want to go? and i quickely screamed turn around!! too bad i didnt have my camera...
this house was set up like a antique strip mall sort of thing in a cozy little neighborhood in historic escondido (summit is the cross street i forgot the actual street) the people were just closin up shop when we pulled up...they were the cutest couple and they had so many awesome findings that it just blew us away!!! Having closed down her 10 antique stores and looking to downsize the super cute lady showed us her abundance of collectibles....i was in the market for an old skool sewing machine and some bingo cards but found none... however i did score these amazing 45's for a buck a piece and they gave me a handfull of these vintage bottle caps for free


i cant wait to make a mini album with these babies!!!

Week before last i won a sweet handmade apron from mctelier with my "my fav no shoes" challenge over at These are a few of my favorite things... and i just got it in the mail today hurray so adorable...

Pinwheel tutorial

Hey friends!! I threw a bridal shower for a soon to be sister in law and wanted to do something craft and inexpensive for centerpieces....so i thought and thought and then i saw a pic in better homes and gardens....it was a super cute pinwheel!!! It didnt explain how to do it so i figured it out.....

heres what you need:

a square piece of paper (obviously scrapbook paper lol but im sure it would look awesome in newspaper too)
plastic straw
needle (optional)

cut from the edges into the c
enter but leave some room (i drew lines just for you to see)

i used a needle to poke holes on every other corner (one side is poked from each triangle piece)


use your brad to bring each hole to the center...stacking one on the other and finally poking a hole though the middle of the paper....

finally, stick your brad right through the straw and open brad

here is my final product....

this pic wont let me rotate it
happy scrappin!!!
