This weekend was a crazy mess of reunions, accomplishments, and catching up on life. Saturday morning was Sageglen’s annual neighborhood garage sale (!!!) and even though there were a lot less sales than usual, my sister, grandma and I had a lot of fun walking around and browsing. I spent a total of $4 on a collection of vintage children’s books and two vintage children’s encyclopedias. The topics and illustrations were just too cute to pass up! I also found a copy of Mere Christianity, which was AWESOME because I’d literally been thinking of re-reading it the day before but couldn’t find my copy. Coincidence? I think not!
|"All over the world, people have learned to use art & music & writing to show some of the things they feel." Love it!|
|Aren't these illustrations ADORABLE?! And the message rings true well beyond elementary school.|
During my Sunday morning blog browse I stumbled upon this incredible craft idea: make your own baker’s twine! Maybe it’s not as fancy as the store-bought variety, but I’ve recently come into about forty skeins/rolls (?) of crochet thread, twelve of which are white. And while I’m super excited to have such a bountiful supply at my disposal, I’m rubbish at crocheting lace sooo I’m trying to come up with other creative ways to use it. And Laura Beth’s DIY was definitely a start! It was the perfect project because I had a few empty wooden spools from a previous antique run just laying around, and now I have some fun homemade baker’s twine to fancy up gifts and art projects!
The Boyfriend even scored big this weekend: he found a Datsun engine on Craigslist that he’s pretty stoked about and I'm so proud for him! Those spare parts are going to make the restore a whole lot easier. Overall I’d say it was a pretty great few days (:
What kindsa trouble did you get into this weekend? Good luck to anyone who still has finals this week, and congratulations to those of you graduating!
