crafty dresser

i found a spot for the dresser... i think.
not too sure... for sure... yet.
i had a big star there before... which i still love...
and it has always been lovingly covered in their art.


the girls do lots of crafts... LOTS.
when faced with free time i can always find them coloring or drawing something!
just like last night.
and since they spend lots of time there...
lots of time creating.
i think we'll see how the dresser works right there.
stocked with all their fun artsy tools.

thinking it might be a good fit... good spot... for fun...
somthing to at least give a try.
if not... we'll just roll her to another.

yes... for now... she'll be an artsy craftsy thrifty dresser!
holding fun & being a helping hand... right there... while they create.

random weekend peek

we had a great little weekend.

playing... relaxing... shopping... visiting... eating... being... together.

as a family.
and it was good to the last drop.
just wish there was a bit left in that mug... it went by fast!

lil bit and i made a quick run by the flea one morning.
found a couple things... one of which was a vintage dresser.
i had no idea where i was going to put it but...
it had cute character & at forty dollars... a perfect storage piece.
i'll let ya know where it ends up.

i picked up some fun knobs at hobby lobby...
sanded a bit here & there (loved the surprise green)... 
and then took the same adhesive paper i had used before... and lined the drawers.
i think she'll be fun to have around!

and speaking of fun to have around!
i see this about fifty times a day!
she is one handstanding silly goose!

off to face the new week...
lots to tackle... lots on the to do.
all i know... i sure am LOVING the time change?
aren't you?
the fall back makes for a bright morning!

while i was out & about yesterday i ran into one of the vintage type shops here...
well... one of like... two!
anywho... i found a few "wow look at that" things!
one of the things i stumbled upon
was a 20 piece set of the encyclopedia of photography.
how neat is that!
they are cholk-FULL... full... of beautiful images & fun know how.
i could not resist!
no way!
i think they will be SO fun!

then i stumbled upon this beauty!
she (?... i didn't look) was so magestic!
i find horses so awe inspiring...
i think i could watch them for hours.
we talked a little... or talked to her... i suppose.
i thanked her for letting me take her photo...
told her how pretty she was...
how i loved her markings...
told her i wished i had an apple for her.
and told her how she made me smile.

she sure did make me smile.
she calmed my nerves too.
put me at peace.
and reminded me that there is goodness & beauty all about.
it's there...
ready for us to stumble upon...
and bring us a smile.
