Mish Mash Monday

Happy Monday to everyone and welcome to another edition of MMM!  I hope y'all remembered to set your clocks ahead over the weekend.  I'm so excited that spring is coming. Changing the time means it won't be much longer!!!!

I discovered a new Etsy shop via one of my favorite blogs, My Life Under the Bus.  The shop is Anita Begley Jewelry Designs and her jewelry is beautiful!  I really want these earrings!! 
One of my favorite things is shopping for fabric.  We live in a rural county and are fortunate enough to have a JoAnn's but it is small and limited in selection.  So I was thrilled to discover a quilt shop in the next county!  I walked in and thought I was in heaven!  I was surrounded by the largest selection of colors and patterns and I was in awe!  One of the employees walked around the corner to ask if I needed anything and I couldn't even speak!  She just smiled and said, "Oh, I see you're in your happy place"!  Because I was so overwhelmed, I only bought one yard of fabric and made these placemats.  I can't wait to go back there!
We left the quilt shop and went to Borders where I was further inspired by the projects in these magazines.  I'm just itching to get started working on the new ideas I have!
Thanks to Audrey over at Audrey's Country Crafts for sponsoring MMM.  Please visit her and check out the chicken recipe!

  6. Ooo.. those ARE gorgeous earrings. I think I'd have a hard time taking them off! :)

    What puts me in my "happy place"... a Barnes & Noble outing WITHOUT the kids, WITH a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks & plenty of home decor magazines & books.

  7. Love the earrings and the placemats :)
    Magazines are a bad habit of mine - just can't seem to have enough.

  8. I love the fabric for the placemats! So fun and summery!
