brought to you by the letter...

When my friend Ann told me they had a giant lowercase letter "a" at the cottage I couldn't get there fast enough. I LOVE it! It's from Kaufman's department store in Altoona, PA, found under layers of facade as they were tearing the building down.

I also bought the adorable little scooter I've been eyeing for a while now.
And I picked up a little house. Isn't it wonderful?
I thought you might like to see another picture of my big hotdog. Ignore the speaker (I do).
And just look at all the loot Linda threw in just for me...

adorable. Lovin' the colors and the A. I always think to buy letters for other people but never for myself...why is that? Maybe I don't like J?

Such fun finds! I've been wanting to get in contact with you - we have a mutual friend (Debby S) who alerted me that you are in the area to which I am moving! If you get a chance, I would to chat with you! (We were at Silver Bella together, but you were so busy with your adorable booth at Vendor Night that I didn't want to interupt. I'm Jenn from Created From Paper.)
