Random Tuesday: Random Mail

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Hello, My Lovelies!  This is our last day of freedom because school starts back tomorrow.  Yikes!  I wanted to share some pretties I've received in the mail lately, and some of the items are school supplies.

Little fake roses from An Angel at My Table
I placed them on my bookcase.

I just can't even...
I received this on July 14th, and I can't even open it.  *spoiler alert*  It is my understanding that Atticus Finch, only the best father in all literature, is not the same man we loved in To Kill a Mockingbird....

Suzanne aka An Italian Girl in Georgia sent me these adorable chalkboard paint plant stakes.
I can't wait to use them!  

This is the cutest Flora Doora ever!  I love Jane's little waterproof bags.  I'll feature this little French lady named Shabby Chandy with flowers soon, so stay tuned!

This is a must for this school year:  a pretty fabric-colored sketchbook from Latvia via Etsy.

ooooo I do love me some Caran D'Ache watercolor crayons.  And these colors are a special edition pastels set.  *squee*  From Dick Blick.

Another Etsy find from Sea adorable pencil case for Shelley

The first two mysteries in the Merry Muffin Mysteries series came in.  Yay!

We hope to have a great day today having lunch at a favorite restaurant and doing a little last minute shopping.  What are you doing today?

Until next time...

  1. Wow, it looks like Christmas at your house. Maybe I need to think about going back to school. ;-)
    Sad your summer is already over. Seems way too early! All the best for a awesome year ahead.

  2. Oh, those are a lot of goodies.

  3. Fun little random post. I'm getting ready to fly to Upstate New York tomorrow morning to visit a girlfriend. :)

  4. I am eating my half apple salad from Wendy's enjoying your post. That is what I am doing for lunch. ;) I love the bags and I know someone who will be having fun with some new journal 52 pages. ;P Todd picked up the new book from Harper Lee. I am like you afraid to read it.

    Have a great last freedom day!

  5. Hello,
    We will be starting school August 31st. Best wishes to you for your 2015/2016 school year.

    I have heard so many sad things about Go Set A Watchman. I am not sure Harper Lee ever wanted it published. I will always love Atticus and think of him from To Kill A Mockingbird.
    xx oo

  6. So many pretties RJ to brighten your day. There had to be a mid-week run for a few grocery items.I haven't decided if I'm going to read "Watchman" although at some point I know I will have to. We are looking forward to the weekend already.
