Chocolate Withdrawal


I don't know about all of you, but I am just starting to come down from my Valentine's Day sugar high. We seem to have more chocolate in this house than any family should be allowed to have. I swear I can feel my face starting to break out just from writing about it. It is awfully yummy, so I'll just have to eat it fast to make it all disappear!

Mr. Postman has been good to me again. Personally I think he's just after my chocolates. He's been bringing me lots of Valentines as well as the little pretty pictured above from Karla's Cottage. It's a beautiful handmade folder filled with lovely wallpapers which will turn into something wonderful once I dream it up in my head. Karla said that it wasn't selling in her shop, (can you imagine that?) so I just couldn't let it stay there and think it wasn't loved. I love just opening it up to look and touch the beautiful papers. I got another delivery yesterday of even MORE wallpaper from the lovely and talented Miss Holly Doodle. I am so anxious to start working with all of this fun stuff!

I was at Michael's today and found this cute little metal wall pocket in their new spring decor section. There are some pretty nice things in that aisle and I may need to go back and take a second look VERY soon.

mmmm yummy chocolate. I am sure it helps get rid of it if you eat it quickly!! LOL
What treasures from Karla and Holly. Lots of fun will be had in creating some special pretties.
Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes that was the same bed Lachlan was dancing on in an earlier post. They just love getting in there on my bed as they can see themselves in the dressing table mirror.

Drooling over the wallpaper goodies. Unfortunately, our chocolate was short lived and I'm already craving more. Must. Get. Off. Sugar. :)

I'm happy to hear that you just got your pkg from Holly. I'm still waiting for mine, which I know will take longer because of having to cross the border. It's nice to peek at your stuff :)
