Oh, what’s a girl to do? There are not enough hours in the day to play, you know?Yesterday the Divine and soon to be blessed Kat took the time to send me a mystery bundle. I love it! I have a deadline (but I don’t feel pressured- just invigorated!) to  use the items in a project and then post about it. Oh, what to  do, what to do! Check out the haul:

I can picture something like 3 Hours Past is showing us…. or an embellished Lisette…. did you notice that little polka-dotted belt buckle- squeal!!!

I’m also am signed up for A Perfect Nose’s One Cool Thing/One Strange Thing Swap. This is a wonderful hoarders dream! I can’t wait to see what other people bought when they were shopping and had than moment when their minds glaze over and the cart fills with the textile equivalent of an episode of ‘Chopped!’

Here are the rules:

-Crappy things not allowed.  (OH well!)

-Entries will be accepted until March 31st, 2012 and a list of interested swap contributors drawn up.

- Each swap contributor will send one cool thing and one strange thing to their nominated swap partner within a month.

I’m supposed to help the other involved bloggers by sharing my likes and taste with a style board perhaps- I’m not too great at that so I’m working on a pinterest board of my random fancies.

Sniff- sniff….do you smell something? Like a spoiled smell? Something slightly off and perhaps rotten? Oh! It’s just me!

 Mr B surprised me with the Singer 160- look at all the paw prints on it already- I swear, I stroked it more than the pups last evening! Got to love what a nerd thinks is the perfect gift, right?
