Today's post is much of what I posted yesterday at Work In Progress. (Have you seen Trish's fancy new blog...adorably fun and sunny!) Snooping around etsy I discovered a few sweet finds just itching to be used for Memorial Day, as well as July4th. The above card is simple and sweet.


Why I am a sucker for these paper straws (get it...sucker?) is a wonder. But they are just adorable. Wished I would of snagged some for my Mom's bday party tomorrow.

The cotton coasters were just sweet. Don't you think? Simple americana.

Ah! My favorite for last. Do you not just love a star glittered burlap banner? I think I need to give this a try. I really think this is great.

Hope you enjoyed the inspiration.

  2. Love your picks...and now I want to make these coasters ;-) ( like I need another "to do" on my long list! )

    Happy BDay to your Mom ;-)
