This weekend I was feeling very crafty, which called for some shopping that led to some incredible finds! I have a lot of crafts to share in the next couple of weeks, so I’m very excited! In the meantime, here are some of the cool things I found this weekend.
Last week, two of my favorite bloggers (Bryn and Jenny) blogged about Daily Drop Cap, a website with amazing decorative initial caps posted once every day.

I would like to share some of my garage sale treasures found this summer. That’s right, all of this came only from this summer – just think of the things you can find if you live in a warm place that can have garage sales all year long or if you stop by consignment shops or estate sales!
