My Grandmother had it, my mom threw it out.. and I just bought it! Jennifer posted the saying above, she saw it on a sign. For the love of vintage! Had a fabulous find at a garage sale today. All four of these wonderful hand embroidered bonsai pictures for $1. Yep...25 cents a piece. Who said a quarter couldn't buy you anything?!

Love how they depict each season. I just think they're absolutely adorable!

I've been really inspired by the groupings I saw over at Inside a Black Apple. I'd like to try more of these.

I'm tickled to be chosen as a Rockin' Girl Blogger by She Who Flies. Thanks so much!

I had a list of some rockin' bloggers and then saw that they already been tagged. There are so many blogs out there in our artsy blog community and truly I think they ALL rock. Everyone is genuinely putting themselves and their art out there and havin' a ball. That's what it's all about!

That saying is so true! How funny. I was nominated as a Rockin Blogger Girl, but I'm too retarded to know what to do about it!

I went to some garage sales today too, and I got a really cool snoopy lunch pail and some old checkers. I love garages sales!
