WOYWW 194 - Every once in a while...

... I manage to find a bargain on ebay...


... not one, but two sets, of Hunkydory card kits, 'Autumn Days' and 'Vintage Journey'. Both the cardstock and the die-cut toppers are g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s... I am going to have such fun, as I work my way through the rather long list of lovely peeps awaiting snailmail, so please be patient with me :)

I also got some stickers, on the left, from etsy (not such a bargain!), and these cute little stamps...


... sadly, rather expensive, considering I had to put them together myself! (I didn't realize that, when I bought them - sometimes you really do need to see things in reality... *sigh*)

At the top of the pic is this...


 ... a handmade postcard Jane Davies sent in thanks for taking part in the Postcard Project (she now has a Facebook page of the 100s she's received so far...)

And here's a close-up of my feather bottle, glimpsed last week...


... along with my lil valentine's hearts from my girl :)

And that's my desk today. Now, I'm heading over to Julia's to poke my nose into as many craftspaces as I can...

... and I'll leave you with some pics I took early yesterday morning, crunching across the frosted grass in our garden... enjoy xxx

Lucky you finding that on ebay, I never have any luck and end up getting annoyed with myself and going around in circles on the site. Glad to hear someone gets what they want.

Happy WOYWW

Your photos in the garden are lovely! I know what you mean about some purchases, I bought some alphabet stamps, now knowing just how tiny they were - could not get them to stand up straight on my acrylic block! We live and learn, but your Ebay purchase looks wonderful. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #37

Love this frosted grass! And I hate that a bargain has not been really a bargain. It is nagging at your conscience, isn't it? But it is hobby which means happiness.

Lori said...

New stuff to play with. So fun!!!

Enjoy hopping around the world today nosing into people desks.

OH my gosh...you reminded me that I have some not assembled yet either...Oh how I hate that job!!!

Those papers are fabulous. It will be fun to watch as you make up those images into cards, or...we will have to wait and see!

Both sets are decidedly different and both are just so lovely.

Great ebay find but a bummer about the other things. I couldn't imagine how cold it must be to get those frosty shots. They look great but I don't think I would like the cold that goes with them.
Have a great week.

I love getting a bargain. I so like those little kitty stamps - I'm sure they will be worth having to put them together. Thanks for stopping by my blog. April #130

Good job on scoring that lot on ebay Claire, pity about the stamps but I hope you get a lot of use out of them to make them worthwhile! Love the frosty pics!

Ebay is great, but have you tried Etsy? Everything is either handmade or vintage...I love that site, I get most of my beads from venders on Etsy. Love the photos especially the multicolored one!!!!
