Favorite Friday

I've been slacking on Favorite Fridays but I think this one will make up for my lack of posts.


I have become a little obsessed with The Junk Gypsy Company. They have a funky selection of home goods and the shirts and the boots. Oh, if I were a couple years younger and about 40 pounds lighter, OK 50 pounds I would wear those tanks and boots!:) But I'm a sucker for the jewelry.

Maybe next time you see me I'll be wearing one of these...




OK Maybe not!

It rained on Kendie's parade

All that hard work we did getting ready for the parade and they had to cancel it because it was raining. It was quite a morning at our house on Saturday. Ken was very upset to say the least! The kids were going to be cave girls and boys. My friend even made dinosaurs out of foam board and we were going to attach it to the sides of the wagon. Super cute!

Here is her costume...





We had to jazz it up a little with some sequins. Add a little sass to it!

But the Folk Fest was still going on despite the lingering showers. If you live around here you should take your kids next year. I can't express how much fun we have!

Instead of wearing her cave girl outfit, Ken sported her dirndl.




The girls went to a tea party




Ken got her face painted. She wanted a Clydesdale horse and Reagan wanted a sword I talked them into getting something a little more girly.





Made kites and flew them.





Her and her Daddy...love this picture!

Taking a little break

I'm taking a blog vacation this week. Not that I've been the best blogger lately. Not really anything blog worthy going on.

This is what I will be doing this week...




Between working on orders and working on a costume for a parade on Saturday. I'm pretty busy this week.

Last year I said Ken and her friends were going to be a washer, dryer and a box of tide in this years parade. That was a little too ambitious for us.

I'm off to add some sequins to some cheetah fabric. Can you guess what she's going to be? And it's not Hannah Montana!:)

My house looks like Pixie Hollow...

We dyed eggs today. This was my very first time to attempt this. It was a huge mess.


See all that glitter...




It's all over my counter tops, kitchen and kid!


But this is the finished product...



And she said, Mommy when can we do this again? Next year baby, next year.

All worth the mess...

Favorite Friday

It always amazes me to see how this big blogging world comes together when their is a crisis. I have made many necklaces for little Jaden's family and friends. This little boy is a fighter!

When I checked his families blog they had a fun little challenge for everyone. They have started a name gallery. Which is pretty cool, I've seen it before here. I think this is a great idea! So tonight say a prayer for Jaden and Stellan and just take a picture!:)
