Latest Obsession (one of many)

I am in love with looking for vintage patterns! I have had great good luck finding them at antique shops for $1 to $3! The ones pictured here are from an Ebay shop and are a bit pricy, but they are all very unique and hard to find.
This weekend I hope to go through all of mine, make some copies, and start using them in round robin journals and card making.
I am just a nut for vintage ephemera! I could browse for hours through stashes of paper.

Next time I get all hepped up over something, I need to remind myself to retreat to my stash of vintage paper and photos!

What is your latest obsession????

Ohhh....those are great vintage photos on the pattern envelopes. I can't wait to see what you're going to do with them !!!!

Hmmm....what am I obsessed with ??
Well, I'm addicted to reading about 100 blogs a day and I'm also obsessed with a new face cream by Origins that smells good enough to eat.

I'm also obsessed lately about getting rid of clothes in my closet that I think I need, but haven't worn for a year....what a project !!!!

And last but not least, I'm obsessing over some metal (tin) stencils that I picked up today at your favorite Madison antique store !!!

I'm loving the hat and apron patterns..who knew? I will keep out an eye for you when I get a free moment to let them roam about in the antique places around here. I am obsessed with the fact that I have NO time...but will have a bunch in about 3 weeks!! "Patience grasshopper"!

I used to sew all the time - but paper crafting has made sewing take a back burner. The ladies look so sophisticated.

My recent obssesion has been golf and the outfits that go with it! I started playing for the first time in April and every time I go into a store I am looking for a golf outfit. First it was anything pink, then turquoise - now black or white! I need to stop the madness!

Oh! Those are cool!! I'm obsessing over vintage childrens books and game pieces. I'm not sure where that came from. :P
