Day 5 and Easter Shopping Spree


I was very bad yesterday. I was scheduled to be a stand-by juror, but alas, the court didn't need my services. I wasn't feeling too well and thought I would just stay at home and rest. But that didn't seem like too much fun, so I went shopping! Isn't that the cure for whatever ails you? I wanted to check out a store my cousin had told me about at Christmastime called Raven and Dove. I had to do a search on mapquest to find out where in the heck the place was. After a few wrong turns, I finally found the little shop.

I got the sweet little nest pictured above complete with a silk egg filled with lavender. I could barely detect the scent through all my congestion, but the shop owner assured me it smelled heavenly. I couldn't resist this darling reproduction "Our Bunny" book, with it's vintage artwork and text.
And then there was this pair of serious looking bunnies nestled in the prettiest pastel glitter forest and well. . .I couldn't resist ~ they were calling my name!
And some yummy velvet flower bunches. . .
And a gorgeous paper umbrella fan with precious birdies perched on the edge.
Then it was time to come home and work on my page for Day 5 of my 21 Day Challenge journal! And after that, I was totally exhauted and needed some R & R before making a chicken pot pie for dinner.

Oh great finds. I love the nest. The nest you did in the teacup if very cute. I looked at the Oprah book the other day. But put it back I wasn't in the mood and I have not enjoyed some of the books she has chosen. Are you doing her online group about the book?
