This arrived in the mail yesterday...can't tell you how happy I am about it.  I've been wanting this book for some time now (love the movie Out of Africa) but I didn't want to pay a ton of money for it...seems that everyone wants it now because of the zebra stripe cover.  I scored mine for mere pennies (okay, maybe mere dollars, but nowhere near what they go for on Etsy or Ebay)
I got the fantastic antique typewriter at this weekend's flea market for only $5.00...only down fall is that it's REALLY, REALLY heavy.
And these are my other flea market treasures...didn't find a ton of stuff but I'm so happy with what I did find!  $4.00 doll head anyone?  No??

The Luck of the Irish...

 The hubby has to go to Ireland for business...what a shame.  We were planning to bring our youngest to Sicily to visit family this summer but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to go to Ireland...a place I had always wanted to see.  I'm a regular reader of Mary Ann Moss' blog,, and admired her sense of adventure in all her travels.  One thing she seems to like to do is rent a cottage/house/apartment instead of staying in a hotel.  She inspired me to be a little adventurous too so I rented this adorable little cottage for the week...isn't it something!
And this stream is right next to the property...look at the ducks.  The owners advise keeping an eye on small children at all times, because of the stream, but I think Sebastian will be just fine (afterall he's 12 going on 47).  He's not really thrilled with the thought of leaving his video games behind for 8 days but I hope he changes his mind once he sees this beautiful place.  If anyone has been to Ireland recently, let me know if there is a place that I absolutely must see...we'll be in the south of Ireland (Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Kilkenny, Shannon, Cashel)  I can't wait!

Happy Friday!

Since we're still getting snow in Minnesota, (yes, in May) and I have no desire to be outdoors in the snow, I decided to make one of my "It's About Us" albums for my Etsy's coming along slowly though I'll certainly have time to work on it today...

I'll turn on some JT The 20/20 Experience, forget about the snow falling outside and try to enjoy my Friday!
