I amazed even myself when I began uploading photos for this week's blog...holy cow! But then, I told myself you would probably much rather look at photos than read my rantings!! So, here's how the week began ~ with a fabulous girls' road trip to Phoenix...to visit with two of our favorite girls, Nancy and Ashley!
|backseat Kiki the prankster|
|Me as co-pilot (PK in the back)|
|Captain Schotzie who said "Stop it Mom, I'm driving!!"|
Nordstrom's Last Chance! Here we meet up with our second family, Mama Nancy and daughter Ashley.
|checkout time after 2+ hours of shopping!|
|can you spell "happy?" (can it be all those Tory Burch shoes we got "on the cheap"???)|
|Ash and Momma Nancy|
|lunch at Ajo Al's|
|adorable couple Nancy and Mike in their gorgeous kitchen!|
|the stars of the show...Campbell and Cayden - TOO CUTE!!!|
These twins totally rock it!!
Always a treat to be able to buy a delish cheap-o lunch...I think they do that because you wind up spending SO much money on everything else!!
Remember the St. Vincent de Paul trip last week? And I promised you pictures of my buys this week?
Take a looky here!
|tiny tin clip-on candle holders|
|vintage Holy Cards, vintage books ~ Devotions to Mary and Logarithms|
|tiny binder clips and a box of real lambs wool!|
|these called out to me and asked if they could come home to be pincushions ~ how could I say anything but "YES!"|
|waiting for me were these 2 little wire cages. I thought they spell "n-e-s-t." I'll paint them white and build a bird's nest complete with eggs and birds in each|
|this darling aluminum cup comes from the now-defunct Tucson branch of Shamrock Dairy|
|hmmmm - I wonder how a cloth transfer with a vintage image will look in this embroidery hoop?|
Not too bad for a thrift store fly by!
Well, the week came to a close very quickly with all the hustle and bustle and once again, Mr. Muse was home to rest after his 4th week in San Fran. Somehow "date night" was even more special this Saturday with a movie thrown in for good measure. We highly recommend a fun, sweet, light comedy - "Something Borrowed."
Before I leave you, as this week is already stacking up before my eyes...I promised a craft and this one is from Jen over at Tatertots and Jello....you can click her link in my side bar. Be sure to tell her I sent you!
Just in time for Spring, and so easy to make! (it's actually from her sister Ashley, but you can read all about it on http://tatertotsandjello.blogspot.com)
