Thrifting, creating, and journaling......

So I went thrifting yesterday on a whim, and I guess if you go often enough you will find some items you covet....for me it was these three Ribbonette rolls of paper string.....they're so soft and just make for a great display...I doubt I'll ever use them. I also decided to create a Valentine just for myself! I highly recommend doing that every so often :).
I've also been working on an art journal, something I can use for my favorite ephemera pieces...the poem on the front of it is one of my very favorites. This journal is one that I found thrifting about a year ago and haven't used...it's filled with old accounting paper so I've been putting some gesso and paint down and then just gluing items down. I also want to be able to journal a bit in here so I'm trying to leave some room for that as well.
I hope you're all having a great week so far, I personally can't wait for Spring...these dark winter months can be hard to take at times....but lately we've had so many birds chirping, and my favorite of all, my daphne bush is blooming! If you don't have one, well I highly recommend them! It's my favorite flower fragrance of them all.....

What lovely thrifting items. Your journal is wonderful! I feel the same way about Spring. I've never been so desperate to see the sun.
