{things i love} thursday
june 11th

hi all!! its thursday again!!
thursdays are seriously my FAVORITE day...
even with all the house stuff too... 2 weeks ago today we drove by the house and the for sale sign was down. i was literally heartbroken. i thought for sure we'd missed out on our chance. so the next morning i called the realitor and turns out it hadn't sold... we still had a chance! so we got the ball rolling. a week ago our offer was accepted. and then last night was our first night in our new home. still in shock. still smitten. and so excited.
so thursdays are good.

here are some things online that make me happy today too. :D
my Flickr favorties:

i have found a picture that just takes my breath away.... i am so inspired by it.
luckily, the photographer that took this picture is my teacher!! she is 503 Photography. and check out her blog HERE. i'm just into week 2 of this workshop and in awe of all i'm learning...and i'm no newbie. LOL. i think she's got a few more spots left in her august workshop if you're interested! grab it if you can!! you won't regret it. :)

*i don't usually post artists here on my blog, but i stumbled across this one during the week and just melted.... PLEASE take a look at abbey mcculloch's work. check it out HERE.

i have met some amazing people through this online world and my blog. one of those special people is darling jamie. the other day i received a package full of happy mail from her. the kind that makes you squeal with delight and surprise. here is what she sent me:

yes, you saw correctly...i finally have some ELSIE STUFF!!! i'm sooo excited! i have elsie girls!! totally going on my new walls somewhere in our house. eek!! :D
and jamie handstitched me that bird and got a big envelope of stuff that is just so me.
