Tuesday night, I was looking for an Eiffel Tower rubber stamp to use on my altered projects (specifically for pictures from our trip to Paris last October) and after about an hour of surfing the web, I found the Ebay site for Tuscan Rose. After I did some searching around, I also found Patty's Blog (Patty Van Dorin is the owner of Tuscan Rose). THEN I found Patty's Etsy Shop ........and yes, I think I'm in love with Patty's products! Okay, I admit it. I AM in love with Patty's products!
Being that I'm enamored with Altered Books and art, it wasn't hard to fall in love with her Rubber Stamps. You simply HAVE to check them out! They're amazing! She designs them herself! I am completely and utterly impressed and IN LOVE with these designs!
Patty also has a GAGILLION Vintage Collage Sheets with the most beautiful images you've ever seen on them. Yes, I got myself the set of butterflies.....gorgeous, bright, vivid, lifelike designs.....and then realized that she has a SECOND set of butterflies. Oh, my wallet could be in SO much trouble if I didn't have any self-control.
So......what did I purchase? Well, I told myself that I was ONLY looking for an Eiffel Tower themed stamp, but yah, you know how THAT is. It's like going into the store ONLY for milk and coming out with 5 other items! I couldn't help myself.......they are just so beautiful and I tell myself that they're also practical because they're for my art. Hey, it works for me! :) (wow.....that sounds like it kind of overrides the whole self-control thing, doesn't it?)

Oh, yes, I'm in love. :)
