Sharing some tidbits today:
I worked my second Thursday at the shop. Already I'm being encouraged by the women who come through our doors...and something else that's encouraging? Stories about my products: like the sweet teen who is going to wear a green/cream felt headband in her senior pictures, or the mama who bought her cancer-laden daughter some headbands as well, since her hair is short and that's about all she can wear. Or the sweet mama that came in with her foster child I could've nearly kidnapped~so cute.
Already feeling so blessed.
Recently Maggie (Shawn and his Dad's doggie) passed away so we had to explain to Wilder all about death.thank you for 12 1/2 years of joy, Mags
(Shawn, Mindy, Mags, circa 1999)
It was gut-wrenching. Oh the things you aren't prepared for going into parenthood. So tonight, when I was telling Shawn (on the phone) that "my thumb hurts so bad I'm going to die"-Wilder just broke out into a fountain of tears. My poor Wildman. He thought I was really going to die. I just adore his sensitive heart. I will be more careful of how I use words...
My thumb really does hurt. Sustained some hot glue gun burns...that's what I get for crafting so late in the day!But look what came out of it:And I couldn't NOT show you these awesome estate sale finds (or things my parents brought; they attend auctions).
Found this HOLY COW AMAZING RADIO at an estate sale; though I paid more for it than I "deep down" wanted to, it was less than Etsy.An owl to be painted deep fuscia, set of 4 yellow kiddos chairs, coral Pyrex
Daddy said "You don't have to take these records if you don't want to."
The artwork on them is outstanding. I think they'd be awesome in a grid on the wall (there are more than just what are pictured).
Vintage aprons plus a serving dish wrap up this fun Thursday!
