1) Thrifted and Randoms Pics.
First I want to say how delightful I find it that so many of you appreciate all the junk I find when thrifting. It's fun for me to spot these deals and it's double the fun to share it with people who find these scores equally as exciting. Here's another round.
Brand new pack of erasers. Binoculars. Spot book and a Barefoot books book. A brand new number puzzle (that I will be giving away), a magnadoodle that is the perfect size for Handwriting without tears. A vintage number/peg game. A box of sponges for painting. $5.50.
And...a pair of skates, a Thomas the train puzzle, three straw hats, stencils, four miniature baskets, a tiny metal pitcher, a vintage dish, stencils and the suit coat shown in the next picture: $7.50.
And just so you can see how long my hair was before I cut it...
I've still been working at trying new things with the starter. Here's a sour dough pizza crust.
It's almost February. February means time to prune these fruit trees. It's sort of the start of the gardening season in a way.
I have one chicken moulting right now. She's bare. Poor planning on her part. It's cold out there.
Although insulating the kitchen floor hasn't helped our frozen pipe issue (they have frozen 12 times thus far), it's much warmer to walk in there. And the dog water on the floor doesn't freeze.
My oldest had a little bread that was store bought. "Mama, what is this? It's not good at all. I only like your bread." Either I created a monster or I should celebrate he appreciates mama made.
I could use a month of staying home just to finish all these crafty projects I have in my head. My friend let me borrow a couple Ottobre and a stack of paper Oliver & S patterns. I want to dive in. I'm not the most patient person out there.
I'm joining my friend Sue from Little Acre that Could in her recent challenge to herself. She's going to make 12 skirts, one a month, for herself this year. Read about her pledge here.
I am jumping on board with her and my goal is making a dress for sweet girl every month.
In case you haven't noticed, 9/10 times, she's wearing a dress. For no other reason other than I like to dress her up. She won't want to be my live doll forever, so I want to dress her in cute little mama made dresses for as long as possible. So this year, I'm going to focus on playing dress up.
How about you? Do you have a crafty project that you are working on? Or you want to work on? If you do, finish it before the last Monday of the month and Email me a pic. I'll include it in my post. So look for the next dress the last Monday of the month, every month. (Although I likely will post January's next week. Just about finished and need to take a pic.)
Because creating is where the fun's at. Won't you join?
