I have to say thanks again to my sister Julia for baby sitting while I ran to the store-you just can't miss those 50% off sales-and MUST go right when they open, which unfortunately is during Charlotte's nap time. Luckily my sister is home schooled, so can obviously do her school anywhere!
It was a bit of a drama filled shopping trip-a woman's wallet got stolen right out of her purse while I was there! yikes. That made me glad I hadn't brought the kids, I might have been distracted and I like having my wallet right where it is.
Here's my haul-minus a skirt you can see later...
this old jar thing that has measurement conversions on it-it will go above my cabinets with my other vintage
haha just kidding. that sign is going in the kitchen. lol, yes I am too funny. chirp chirp...ok..
I have one of these exact wire baskets already-but you can never have too many baskets-and the other day I was thinking I needed to get something like this but now I can't remember what for. hmm. It'll come to me, I hope.
not pictured in the first pic cause it got left out, sorry skirt-you're super cute! I bought it without trying it on cause I loved the fabric, but I think it'll fit actually! if not, another refashion for Sadie will be in the works.
L-R: a vintage green pillowcase (I'm working on a fun project involving these... more to come), 3 or so yards of this black checkered fabric (for $1.50!), two more pillowcases with some eyelet lace trim, and an Ikea hippo duvet cover. ($1)
Plastic Belle was not from the thrift store....she was a present from Sadie's uncle Josh that morning. She is a bit of a camera hog apparently. and prone to fainting spells.
Look for a makeover of this kitschy little sign ($2.25) soon! I can't wait to see how it turns out. :)
Oh lookie here! It's already done. ;) Some sandpaper, a couple of quick coats of spray paint=almost instant redo. This is hanging in our entry now.
Total for this trip was around $17.
and now, cause this blog has been severely lacking in Charlotte cuteness lately, here's a quick pic.
I can't believe she'll be eight months old this week! She is getting to be so fun lately-and her and Sadie are definitely acting more like sisters-giggling at each other and swiping each others toys. She's finally sleeping longer stretches-she did 6 or 7 hours the other night, which was heaven. (and the longest she's ever done, ugh) She figured out she likes to sleep on her tummy-so whatever works, right? She wants to crawl so bad too! It's cute and kinda funny to see her little booty waggling in the air from her trying to move. Ok, sorry about that side note. But not really, cause oh how cute is her little face?
OK! really done now! lol.
Other random notes I want to leave with you:
*I did a tutorial for Project Run and Play's last week which will go up tomorrow, I believe, so check back for that!
*I have some other exciting things in the works that I can't wait to tell ya about-some fun blog collaborations and such!
*I am too excited to see that people are using Ana's plans for my dress up storage! You can see the pics by clicking on her photos page-they're scattered among the first few pages. It's so fun to see people using your idea. (and of course, Ana's awesome plans)
*I have got the feedsack dress tutorial written, but wanted to give you the pattern pieces (or, my 2T pattern at least), so still trying to figure out the best way for that.
*Have got the next sew-along ready for you guys! I'm thinking this could be a monthly thing? This time it's a dress for Charlotte! Can't wait to share. Maybe next week? (21-25) February is such a short month! It's almost over already.
Phew. That was a lot of info, huh? Hope you stuck through it ok.
