Inspired by ..........

I received a free sample of the new Starbucks instant coffee in the mail and just had to create something with the packaging. I found this painted wood wall hanging for 50 cents at the thriftstore and the whole thing just made itself. the journaling reads - in case of caffeine emergency break seal
I did this layout last night for the free shoppin thread on SIStv. My items were lime green and pink paint. lace, and something vintage. I made the straw flower on the bloom loom that I just got - it's made of actual vintage raffia straw that I found at the Goodwill thrift store. I bought every skein that they had.
This layout is for Inspired by Amelie and is about simple pleasures that we love and that make life worth living. Here too I made a straw flower (better get used to seeing them). The vintage milk cap is the one I won from Julie (bmwgirl on SIS) and the valentine I won from another RAK. The ting bottle cap is from Trinidad and the photo is of the key lime tree in our yard (I have used a larger version of this photo as a model to paint and showed it in an earlier posting).
Today it is beautiful here and I am going out on the lanai to read - not only am I reading a great murder mystery (the various haunts of man by Susan Hill) but I also received a copy of the new Stampington magazine Marie (purchased on ebay) and I can hardly wait to read it.
Happy Saturday!
