I found this little vintage rooster dish on a thrift outing this week. It is perched on top of an old Cherrystone Farms candy tin. The colors here make me want to make something...now!!
This little vintage fairy bunny pin is one of my all time favorite possessions. She was a mere $1.50 at the local secondhand shop. Is she magical or what?
This is the back of a vintage deck of playing cards that I found new in their package at the Goodwill. I WILL do something with these one day. Any ideas?
These are my creature comforts; want to share yours? Please post a comment!

I apologize for my delay in accepting them! This first one came to me from Claudia at Cloud 9 Creations. She works magic with buttons- you must take a peek. This award makes me feel so ooh la la! The story behind the award, taken directly from Claudia's blog, is as follows: The authors say that blogs who receive this award are exceedingly charming. This blog invests in the PROXIMITY in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that even more friendships are propagated.
This second "sweet" award came to sosorosey via Michele at Sweet Irie. I met Michele through Etsy when she contacted me to see if I would like to do a trade. As soon as I feasted my eyes on her shop, my answer to that query was a resounding "YES!" I have my keys on one of her fabulous key fobs, and it never fails to make me smile. A more beautiful blog you will never see, either. Please do visit her shop and blog today!

The feeling of seeing something you made looking back at you from this special spot is indescribable. For me it is like a combination of standing on the top of Mt. Everest and being handed a winning lottery ticket.
I stare and stare, thinking "Wow, that's me right there! Right there! I MADE that!" Then *poof* the front page changes, and your 30 minutes of fame is over. But thankfully that warm, fuzzy feeling stays and stays. And if it happened once, it can happen again! Woot!
