Thrifted. Updates. Randoms. GIVEAWAY!!!!

1) Thrifted.
 Melissa and Doug Puzzle.  Four miniature baskets (that are regularly used for feeding play horses).  Four brand new garden tools for kids.  A restoration hardware brand new pickup truck, price tags still on it.  A tie. And this pillow. More to tell about this pillow.  Grand total: $7.00.

So, the pillow.  My little 3 year old never asks for gifts for himself while we're out and about.  He always wants to get gifts for his mama, though.  If my husband brings him to the store, they almost always come home with flowers or a special treat for me.  Not my husband's idea, but my 3 year old's.

Well, he picked this pillow.  Carried it around.  Was convinced it was perfect for his mama and that I'd love it.  It wasn't something I would pick out, but he was so convinced it was perfect for me. I couldn't crush his spirit and refuse.

You know what?  Brought it home and placed it on the couch.  It really is quite perfect.  He knows what he's doing.

You should have seen  him beam from ear to ear when I told him I loved it.
 And another round.
 Boots.  Poem and vintage Mother Goose.  A wooden box and an extension cord.  And more Mother Goose books (we're obsessed), as well as four other best sellers. $4.50.

2) Updates.

We have snow, snow and more snow. Although days are getting longer, it's still dark very early. That's the life in Maine in February. 

But, we're making the best of it. We're getting outside.  We're making elaborate meals (and desserts!) to warm our bellies. We're using our freezer stash. We're finishing projects, reading books, playing games and giving the sewing machine a workout.  We're garden planning and summer dreaming.  But not moving so fast that we forget to embrace winter.  The pace winter sets is much appreciated. 

3) Randoms.

Just a couple pics of my loves on a horse drawn wagon ride.  Would have been smart to take a picture of the horses too, huh?

    It is so sweet that Adrian picked out that pillow for you. I have to say, he did a great job! It really does go well on your couch.
