Monday Eye Candy

I thought I would catch you up on what arrived in my mailbox this past week. First of all, I received the new Gudrum Sjoden home textile catalog, which is appropriately entitled Inspiration. It is chock full of beautiful scenes of dream rooms and accessories. The pages remind me of Anthropologie's lovely catalog. You can get one for yourself here. Below are some of my favorite pages.

I was thrilled when the postman delivered this sweet Bird Ephemera Kit that I ordered from Cerri over at Little Pink Studio. She always has the most wonderful little things in her little shop. I love all the "birdie" related papers, book pages and stickers, as well as the yummy lace and ribbons! She even tucked in a little "surprise" egg filled with goodies as a bonus.
Below is the Her Stashaway kit that I ordered from Teresa Mcfayden at Paper Bella Studio. All the wonderful papers and ephemera will be used to make hanging pockets to stashaway fun little keepsakes. I especially love all the colors (and birdies) included in both of these kits.
I thought I would share with you the way I store some of my vintage lace, ribbon and trim. I wrap them on old clothespins (not the spring type), secure them with a straight pin and place them in this tiny robin's egg blue colander that I found recently at Marshall's. I keep this one on the desk in my studio where it is handy, but also pretty to look at. They also had a matching full-size colander that I bought to use up at the cottage. I think I may have to go back and see if they have some more of these as they are great for extra open storage. Well, I think that is all for now. Have a happy Monday everyone!

what pretty things! I love the Gudrun Sjoden catalogs, but I haven't received one in a while so maybe my subscription ran out.. I need to send for a new one! They really are beautiful.

Great Bird Goodies too and I love your trim storage idea!
