My very own "Toy Kingdom"

On my way to Toy Kingdom, I couldn't resist visiting my favorite store in SM Mega Mall. Carolina's is a sewing notions store, but when inside, I get lost in a world of vintage laces and cloth flowers and glass beads. I literally drool over the many laces I see there. Of course, even if I only intend to buy 1 yard of a particular lace, I end up spending so much more, especially when I see the colors that evoke the old world blood in me. Today, here's the stash I bought:


Aren't they lovely?!!! I now have more than 1 drawerful of ribbons and laces, I don't know where I can keep any of them, and yet I just got more! Carolina's is virtually my own "Toy Kingdom!" If Galo goes to Toy Kingdom, hubby goes to Cyberzone, I go to Carolina's! I can spend hours there just oggling and choosing and buying stuff there!

Actually, I am thinking of reclaiming the 4th set of 4 drawer box cabinetry I had made from hubby's worktable, so I can organize the overflowing mess I have! I am literally messing up our bedroom! I really wish I had my own scrapbooking room. Still, I wouldn't want to miss the daily routine I have, seeing hubby at his table surfing the net and being pestered, cajoled and hugged by my little boy playing. Hmmm. Definitely don't want to miss those.

Hi Candy, #1) I love your LOs. #2) How I wish I can go to Carolina's when I saw your laces/ribbon. I used to go to that store (sa Divisoria pa noon)with my Mom way way back. We have Michael's and Joan's here but nothing beats good ol' Carolinas! Have a great one.

Hmmm... You're reviving my love for ribbons! I have a whole drawer full of it too but I've noticed that I haven't been using them as much. Time to starting checking out my stash and using them for my next layout. Thanks for the reminder!

Naku Candy, pareho tayong adik sa Carolina's! Can't resist the lovely ribbons and shiny buttons!

Fire hates it when I insist we go there because it inevitably sets off her rhinitis, but she still likes the stuff I make out of 'em.

Naku Candy, I can relate with your drawer full of ribbons. Kakaloka pag nasa loob ka na ng Carolina's coz of the many possibilities. Which reminds me, I still have tons hoarded from there na di pa din nagagamit. LOL!
