Window Shopping Wednesday – Paper Source (2014)

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a Window Shopping Wednesday but my latest Paper Source catalog came in the mail and I just couldn’t resist. There are a few items I’d really like to have and I considered purchasing them myself but maybe I’ll get lucky and someone (ahem, mom? husband? Are you paying attention??) will get them for me for my birthday or Christmas. A girl can hope!

I love these Kate Spade Bow Paper Clips. Aren’t they just so snazzy???

This Woodland Cheese Board just makes me smile. I would love to have this around for entertaining.

Adorable Fox Tea Towels? Yes please!

What about these fabulous Ceramic Bowls (1, 2, 3)? Wouldn’t they be just the greatest addition to a spring tablescape?? I think #2 (the Orange Floral Ceramic Bowl) is my favorite but I love that you can mix and match them all together.  You’d need at least 2 of each though.

Window Shopping Wednesday – Pink Chalk Fabric

One of my goals for 2013 was to spend more time crafting.  So far, that’s been a success.  I spent one weekend in January crafting and my February crafting day is coming up soon.  I haven’t actually gotten much accomplished… it’s more like sorting through all of my projects that are in some stage of started and figuring out where to go from there.  I’ve made a few things though.  I promise I’ll show you pictures and what not soon.

I have a bootie-load of fabric in my fabric stash so I’m not actually in the market for more.  I’ve succeeded in not purchasing any for several months now but that’s mostly due to avoiding places like Joann’s like the plague.  Haha.

I did run across this cute little shop called Pink Chalk Fabrics online the other day though (completely by accident, I swear) and I thought we could at least virtually shop for some fun fabric.

Ya’ll!  OMG!

I cannot believe I’ve been in the dark about the complete and under faboulousness that is Paper Source up until today!

I totally just blew some $$$ in there.

Again with the hedgehogs.  I so badly wanted these Hedgehog Magnets but I didn’t buy them.  I’m hoping some little elf will put them in my stocking next year.  Or maybe in my birthday box?

This Obsessive Chef Cutting Board totally cracked me up because my husband is the resident ‘chopper’ in our house and always gets stuck chopping vegetables for me.  He’s always asking me exactly what size I want them chopped.

I fell in love with several of their rubber stamps.  I might just have to buy some of these babies if I ever get into card making (or something else equally as fun and creative that uses stamps).

Here are some of my favorites:
