  1. OMG, Pixar stamps????? Holy moly, I've got to get some of those, thank you for sharing!! Love that MoMo blocks you're working on, looks super fab so far!

  2. Fantastic fabrics & other fun goodies!

  3. Gosh George is adorable! Too bad he can't come to the Sewing Summit with you. Looking forward to meeting you there Jeni!

  4. I *love* the bowls holding the strips! The fabrics are pretty as it is, but the little bowls just make the adorably cute meter shoot higher :)

  5. Love your Mendocino and wonderland blocks. And those stamps- sooo cute!

  6. I work at the Post Office, and I had this little kid around 10 yo coming in for weeks asking for those stamps, on the 15th he came in and I told him they come out on Friday the 19th. He woke up that morning, hurriedly got dressed, and went into the kitchen and asked his mom why she wasn't dressed yet, that they had to hurry. She asked him for what, he said he had business to take care of at the post office. She had forgotten all about it. I got a good laugh that he had remembered.

  7. love the stamps, love the sheets! your mendocino & wonderland look amazing too!

  8. Check out your sheet haul! That is awesome!

    I can only find ugly brown 80's sheets here!

  9. Ooh! Ooh! That fabric bundle has me pressing my nose up to the computer screen :) Have a great weekend!

  10. Oh I wish they'd had the pixar stamps when I was in the PO a few weeks ago....I just sent out my son's birthday invitations and he would've loved these!
    So many cute projects you've got going! Love it!

  11. Ok so I used to think you had great vintage sheet success because of where you live... but now you up and moved and they still gravitate to you like magic. You've got skils!

  12. Hi Jeni..just had to say I love your George pic today..he is so tiny and perfect!

  13. I have been waiting for those stamps too - grabbed them last week:) You have a lot of wonderful things in the hopper right now!

  14. I just love your Mendocino quilt. Yay for progress! The start to your Momo quilt looks fun, too.

  15. where did you find all of those yummy sheets?! maybe i need to meet up with you to go thrifting together :)

    your Mendocino and Wonderland are so so yummy. you could just keep showing blocks of those fabrics and i would never get tired of it.

  16. Love your Wonderland blocks, but then George the bunny just steals the show!

  17. We go to this "rabbit society" grooming sessions at a nearby pet store & they recommended this brush and it works great! I feel like the sharp ones hurt him.

    PS: I can totally imagine George & Jake being bunny buds.

  18. I seriously want to move to your town! You find the greatest vintage sheets!!! Awesome finds! Jenn

  19. I recently scored a set of black and white salt & pepper shakers in that dot. I just bought them because I love polka dots and thought they were cute; I had no idea how rare(& expensive) they are on sites like Ebay! I couldn't even find the B & W...only Red and White.
    I love the bowls!
