Okay, so the title of this post has absolutely nothing to do with anything, it just popped into my head as I began to type! So, forgive me for being a tad silly this morning.
We had an absolutely fabulous time at the Queen Bee Market this past weekend. We met some of the most darling people, experienced a room just bursting with creativity and were surrounded by beeeee-utiful things. Oh, and we might have done a tiny bit of shopping too! Here are a few of the beautiful things I purchased...
This necklace was so pretty, and pink! I just had to have it. I needed it. Really, I did. If you want one of your very own, it is by Allora Handmade.
I also bought a new checkbook cover from The Pleated Poppy. From our favorite things giveaway, you already knew I was in love with everything from The Pleated Poppy. I was still carrying around a cracked plastic freebie from the bank, so it was definitely time to pretty up that checkbook cover!
This isn't a picture of my cover, but of another very similar to it. Of course mine has pink on it!!
I also did quite a bit of shopping with Funky Vintage Lovely. She has the most divine things! And so much more fabulous in person. Beyond fabulous really! I bought the most adorable magnetic recipe card holder, and a wonderful vintage frame that I am going to put chicken wire in and make into a message board (like a cork board with clothespins instead of push pins).
I also bought a headband with flowers on it from Whippy Cake. I have been coveting some Whippy Cake for quite some time. Squeeee - now I have one of my very own!
Here is a picture of the flowers I bought. They have clips on them to clip to a blouse or whatever (like shown here), but also velcro to attach to a headband. I bought a thin elastic headband to give it a try and was really excited to find one that didn't slip back on my head - it totally stayed in place!
Okay, back to business... Sweet Funky Vintage has a lot of exciting things going on right now. We are busy getting ready for our Fall 2011 season - Around the World!
