Even as a chamber pot, it is so pretty!!! Love your book! Wow. Tehe, there have been time when I sat and though about typing that over and over again. What a memorable shot from the movie. Who doesn't love Jack! xoxo

If you see any twin girls in the hall, run!! (no, wait, it could be your sisses!!)


I cannot believe how many East Coast storms there have been this season - and every single one of them has just skirted to the east and missed us. (Not to rub it in or anything.) At least here we're kind of prepared for this kind of thing. Good luck, Robin! It's good crafting time, at least.

I love the shape of your white, ummm, chamber pot, I think that's what it is, but it's pretty all the same. The lock is amazing, lucky you to know someone who didnt want it herself:>) Oh to have time to stay in my jammies and work on a journal! It sounds sublime. I love that you have such meaningful and personal ephemera to add to it. So many things we use in art don't have the meaning that your moms attendance paper or the picture of your mother in law on the ship have!

Very cute post... VERY true!
Wishing you the best~

Such wonderful vintage treasures in this post!! I love the photograph of your mom modeling for the cruise ship!! And her perfect attendance certificate! That journal looks like it's going to be a masterpiece! :)

Your journal is coming along quite nicely! How great that you're filling it with all sorts of family mementos too!

I hope you guys are prepared for the big storm this weekend. I went & bought a new shovel and some chocolate & Diet Coke. Definitely don't want to be stuck at home all weekend with out proper amounts of caffeine & Reese's cups! lol

That is a totally cool lock- isn't funny how things that started out as utilitarian pieces can be so decorative?

Your journal is fantastic- very inspiring. I don't want you to get caught in the snow this weekend, but I would love to see more of the journal.


your journal is really gorgeous Robin...great thrifted finds...i really love those flowers, they are more snow here so far...

I had to laugh at your description of your family looking at you sewing LOL I'm sure my husband thinks the same thing many times. Your book looks like it's going to be wonderful. I just did a blog entry about a family picture and this year one of my goals is to collect all the bits and pieces of history I know about my family into a special book. I know someday someone will appreciate it.
