The Most Gorgeously Perfect Romantic Home

I've finally found my dream home, and I am in love.

Decorated in the shabby-chic style, this cottage oozes romantic charm.

The fact that it's located in New Zealand might seem to be a problem for me. However, it is not the biggest obstacle to my moving in.

My dream home is actually the amazing workmanship of Mercedes at Liberty Biberty. She is a talented miniaturist who created this dollhouse and most of its contents.

I urge you to visit the Liberty Biberty blog to check out the many photos. This dollhouse, which Mercedes calls the Shabby House, is truly a work of art. Make sure to scroll down and click on older posts to view the gorgeous bedroom.

Vintage Luggage

A couple of weeks ago, I came across the sweetest 70's canvas suitcase in a thrift shop. I just loved the groovy colorful flower design.

When I unzipped it, I saw that there was a matching, slightly smaller case inside. (Bonus!!) Needless to say, I was thrilled with my find, and plopped it into my shopping cart.

When I got home, I inspected the suitcase more closely and, to my surprise (and delight), I realized that inside the second one, there was a third matching suitcase! Also, each suitcase had a string with its key tied inside.

All together now...

The littlest suitcase just makes me want to plan a little weekend getaway...

For the Love of Candy

I finally solved the mystery of who's been stealing the 'prop' candy. I placed a small glass vase into a larger one, and filled the space in between with conversation hearts. Slowly, I've noticed the candy level has been going down. I spoke to the boys about it. (I even went so far as to threaten to sprinkle hot pepper on the candy.) As it turns out, the kids aren't the only ones who've been picking...

"If I just play it cool... maybe she won't notice me."

"Okay, the coast is clear... this may be my only chance."

"OMG! I think I'm actually gonna get some candy."

" Wait! Is she looking? I'll pretend I'm just smelling the flowers."

"That's it... I can't wait any longer!"
