Now to answer some recent questions:
-The stamp used on Emma's packaging was gifted to me from a fabulous friend so I don't know where it's from. Inside the packaging it says poppyink.com so I would start there if you want to find it. The tags were easy to make. We just used an xlg oval scalloped punch from Marvy Uchida and stamped the image on.
-For those of you worried about the birdcage in the garage sale picture, it is still in my possession. It is one of several things it turned out I wasn't ready to part with.
-We plan to spend our profits from the garage sale on these new flannel sheets, a blu ray DVD player (yes we finally entered the 21st century), a rug for our bedroom, renewing our Children's Museum membership, a secondhand eliptical, a bookcase, an antique dresser for our entry (which I am shopping for today) and approximately $50 worth of cheese from Trader Joe's. I'm not even kidding about that cheese.
-The wall color we have used in most of the house (including the family room and dining room) is Benjamin Moore Natural Cream color matched at Sherwin Williams. I love it so much I'm getting ready to continue it upstairs (I'm hoping to wrap up my painting projects by Thanksgiving). Also, many people questioned why we want to get rid of these french doors. Only one of the doors opens so we would like to have double opening doors. Long term, we hope to enclose the area outside those doors to become the dining room and at that time the doors would be removed all together.
-These much asked about cups are from Anthropologie. I have a cup problem (to match my bowl problem). More on that soon.
