Little Arrows

 Well, for this post to be just right you might want to scroll down and hit play on the music video below ( which is just music) so you have the appropriate music :)    Oh.. that song just makes me happy anyway.     I made these little arrows using the "Heart to Heart" Digital Art Stamp Set from Crafty Secrets.    . 

The four different heart designs are so pretty and worked perfectly for this.  I just printed them back to back, and then stitched two together, to make the tips.

These sentiments are also part of the set, along with a number of other stamps of course.  These arrows are about 9 inches long , but of course the glory of them being digital is you can make them any color or size you want :)

While I'm talking about new thing from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage I want to tell you about some of the very newest downloads available.  Spring and Easter will be the next things to be planning for so check out these gorgeous printables. Again, of course, you have the option to print whatever size you choose and there are so many different things you could do with them.  I just made these on dowels to be stuck in with fresh flowers or in a potted plant.  There are three different sheets of designs. I'll be showing you a number of different things I've created with them in some upcoming posts.  You can find these downloads HERE.

Well, today I had to little girls day out.  We went to a shop I had never been to in Wahoo Nebraska called "Found and Flora".  What a fun and inspiring little shop!

Filled with beautiful things.. and smelling wonderful!

Of course its a floral shop..but it's also filled with fun vintage goodies, and set in the most darling little vignettes all over the store.  Jan and I have been talking about checking it out for come time and just hadn't gotten there.  Deb had been there and said it was a fun place, so today the three of us went together.  We spent some time here, had lunch and then strolled thru a couple of antique stores.  It was a really nice afternoon.

Shops like this just have so much character. It's so fun to see things display with so much creativity involved. Pretty smells, and soft lighting.  ahhhh... love it.   It's always such a refreshing change from rows and rows of shelves stocked with blah, blah, blah..bright florescent lights and the sound of shopping carts banging. lol

So many more things I didn't get photos of because my camera battery died..but trust me, it's a fun place.  Defiantly worth stopping in if you are in the area.

   Heres their info.

So other than that this week..... a new do.   New color and cut for miss vic.  And boy is this color a change for me.  Quite a bit darker than I had planed..but oh well, you only live once right? lol   Red is my natural color..but over the years the the pretty color red I always had  just wasn't the same. Pretty drab was more like it.  So I started having it colored and highlighted.  I always went lighter before.  We talked about redoing this..but you know what... change it good sometimes, so for now, I'll just leave it alone. lol        

Well, we're heading into the weekend, so here's to a good one my friends!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
