Hi Stampers, Happy Sunday friends! Today we are celebrating my moms birthday and my birthday today . Thought I would share this sweet plaque I got for my stamp studio I love it. I found it at a new store that just opened up near us 3 months ago called At Home . Do you have one near you yet ? It reminds me of Home Goods and Kirkland's just different "At Home" at least our store is HUGE and it carry's more of the items in the store, so unlike Home Goods ( which I love too) typically they have 1 or 2 of a certain item "At Home" could possible carry 20 of (1 ) item plus they have outdoor items like patio furniture / cushions etc.... Plus they have so many sparkly things. Speaking of sparkle.... Oh my goodness have you ever seen sparkle like this ?... Continue reading
