My Happy List: Whipped Cream & Other Delights

Dan brought home some beau-tea-ful mugs and porcelain utensils from a business trip. They were given to him as a gift from one of his Korean colleagues.



I love the art on the mugs and lids. The handles of the utensils are pretty too.



I am happy about my growing pile of doilies


and upholstery fabric samples a friend gave me from her business.


When I saw this baby girl on the Graphics Fairy blog, I knew I had to make her into tags.

They were cut out with my Silhouette Cameo.

And finally, when I entered the Goodwill store the other day, one of the first things I saw was this Herb Alpert record album. Boy did it bring back memories! We had it in our home while I was growing up and I was just talking to Dan the other day about how risque I thought it was back then. The whipped cream was very seductive. The other thing is that when I was a kid, I tapped danced to Spanish Flea and I can still remember the steps so I can dance to it today. I even have tap shoes. It's a sweet memory.


What is on your happy list this week?

  11. Holy smokes, that is a risque cover...lol. But very fun too. I took some tap for rhythm when I was figure skating. We all, who were skating to get into the Olympics did tap for rhythm and ballet for grace. Now I love to dance the Flamenco and stomp around in a bit of a different way. :)
