I can't say I've ever saved a dry cleaning tag. I love a fresh perspective though.
I just found your blog and make it a regular stop now. (I tagged you on my blog. Pass it on.)

I love your blog - it reminds me to really notice the details in life. An important metaphor for parenting.

it's funny how scraps from everyday life, when saved and shown together can create something so great. Love your blog and your appreciation for simple, beautiful things.

Ah, gorgeous! Red type is my favorite.

So great!

I seriously thought I was the only one who picked up and saved stuff like this. So relieved I'm not. And I guess it just goes to show that we have yet another thing in common...

love 'life details' like this. I recently did a post on my blog about finding some great old printer's type blocks... (love your blog btw)

These look like parking garage tickets, beautiful all the same.
