Valentines, imaginariums, and mink bikinis

So - in the mail today I got this:

Clap, clap, clap for Cerri!

What a fabulous box of goodies.  It was wrapped so prettily and just look what was inside!

It was almost too pretty to open.

There is some pink mica, one of those wonderful glue sticks that smell like almonds.  They are called Coccoina glue sticks and they are marvelous!  There's a tiny little white box with buttons, some really pretty fabric, and a charming little angel.

If you go to Cerri's blog you can see a much clearer picture.  If you click on the pictures they will enlarge
and also give you a better look.

Here's everything all spread out so you can see it better.

I don't know why I thought this weird shadow thing from the door looked "arty."  In hindsight, it just looks like I was too lazy to find a good location.

oh..maybe, probably,  that's true...

This was the stupendous, splendiferous, spectacular box of valentine goodness that was sent by Elyse.

Hearts (all kinds)

Wish ticket

A vintage look valentine

K stamp (you know, a stamp with the letter K)

Buttons, pearls and bits

The valentine swap hosted by Heather at Speckled Egg was loads of fun.  Thank you Heather!!

Yesterday, my daughter and I went to see this


It is a visual treat to the senses.

It's a fairytale.

It's Heather Ledger's last movie.

Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Judd Law finished it out after Heath died.  They donated all of their money made from the film to Heath's

How can you not love that?!

The plot line is a bit choppy, but the stunning look of the film more than makes up for that.

And last but not least.

Mink bikinis.

Not minks IN bikinis.

Mink bikinis.

How many minks do you suppose it takes to make a bikini?

Try not to think about it.

Read Corrie's blog.  It's great.  All except for the mink bikinis.

That's just wrong.

At my age, any bikini is just wrong. I doubt if I'll be wearing a mink one.

I'm voting for arty. I like it.

And I am amazed at how much can fit into a matchbox! Especially the flavored glue which I had not heard of before this. I need to get out more. -amy
