Love is.... STUFF

Okay. So I have good new and bad news. The good news is while my boyfriend was in Kansas City seeing if he was going to get recalled he bought me souvenirs !! He bought me some shirts and a magnet from Kansas City ( all I wanted was a magnet). Then he had a connecting flight in Dallas, Texas and he was such a peach he bought me some more goodness!!! He knows the way to my heart...

Texas cow boy boot Salt and Pepper SHAKERS!!! I LOVE HIM!!! These are so cheesey I can't stand it! I am slowly turning into my Great Grandmother..... one S&P at a time!!!

So the bad news.... It's not actually so bad... So originally they told him that he would find out today if he got recalled or not and if he did they were going to give him his orders... Well I guess they recalled 1,200 people thinking they would need a lot, but while this "screening" (aka fondling my boyfriends balls and making him pee in cups) was going on some big wig called saying they are not going to need as many people as they thought... Possibly only 300... So now the mother fuckers are making me wait another month to see if Juan is going bye bye or not... WHY do they do this to me? Seriously... I know this is all ran by men because women don't leave a sista hangin' like this! Especially about life altering PLANS! So whatever... Now when I find out its going to be right around the holidays... Nice way for the military to take a Royal Shit on my Christmas!

Ssssooooo......Whoever said things can't make you happy obviously never had the cute little things I have!! I love vintage things, cute things, and crafty things. My favorite part of crafting is dreaming of what I will be making and then going down the isles of my favorite craft store looking for my goods!!! unfortunately I have a whole closet full of "dreams" that have yet to be assembled... but thats not the point... I am here to show you the things that I DO HAVE!

Lets start with this cute make up bag I recently purchased:

Isn't it so cute? Its made out of vinyl stuff! I got it from The Craft Kitchen in Santa Ana, CA Its a totally cool indie craft store! Everything is made from local artist! Some of the stuff was to die for! I heard of this store from the wonderful Craft Pig check out her blog... she is super funny and makes the cutest stuff... also she is a crazy dog lady and wants to steal everyones dogs and give them better lives... plus she has an English Bulldog named Miss Gladys... pretty much the cutest thing ever! hopefully she brings her to the Patchwork Show I will be in!!!

The next item I am posting is for Patty! This is my vintage jar full of vintage buttons!! My aunt picked it up while she was driving from Virginia to Michigan.. $3.00 full of smelly vintage buttons.... I am in love...

And this last little treausure I will show you is just to make Amy jealous. This little vintage lamb and skunk is one of my favorite things I have... I love how its not perfect. It actually LOOKS vintage...

My boyfriend says "Vintage is a nice way of saying old junk!" That comment almost got him a kick in the ass that would send him back to Ecuador!

Gggoooooodnite!

There's a craft store in Santa Ana?! I had no idea. I'm sorry you have to wait another month to find out if your boyfriend is going to be recalled. Please tell him I say thank you for his service. And, thank you for posting your button jar!! I love it. Sorry to hear they're stinky. Can you wash them?
