Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian counterparts!
We have been dealing with ongoing internet and phone problems here, which are supposed to continue until the 29th (thanks Shaw!)… so excuse any absences here in the next few weeks. The good news is that when we called to complain they credited us for the whole month, but I would rather have access to my email!
But I am going to take it as a sign from above that everytime I attempt to post Fresh Coat Friday we have a black out. For the time being I think we will pause FCF, bringing it back when time permits and the winds of fate align again. Thanks to all the ladies who took the time to submit their projects, you have some wonderfully creative minds!
My parents (aka Wren’s Poppa and Nanny) have been out of town for a few weeks and feeling homesick for their baby girl. Wren has also been missing them and talks about Poppa all day long.
She is definitely a girly girl and becomes more like mom every day. She is in a shoe phase and will sit and try on all her shoes several times a day. Her favorite shoes are boots though, which is great now that it is fall (we looked a little crazy on hot summer days walking around with her rubber boots on).
Her other favorite thing these days are stamps. She gets a stamp on her hand at the end of every dance class and shows it off proudly. Unfortunately it usually washes off by the next day so I have had to start giving stamps at home for good behaviour.
But there wasn’t much good behaviour the other day at Old Navy! We went to grab some warm fleece jammies, when Wren found this pair of boots and threw an absolute fit that she couldn’t take her shoes off and put these on. After the tantrum dust settled I hid them in our pile and bought them for her… and you would honestly think Christmas came early at our house when she saw them!
I felt like christmas came early as well when I found this amazing old trunk while junking recently! It has the name and address of it’s original owner painted on the top which I think is sooo cool. I am on the hunt for an old luggage stand now and will use it as a side table somewhere.
Another fun find has been these ceramic alphabet balls at Michaels! A few of you have mentioned you found them as well, but for those that haven’t been to Michaels recently definitely make a trip, if only for these guys. They are in the $1.50 bins, but be sure to print off a coupon first!
And speaking of coupons, has anyone else not been able to use their 50% off coupon from Martha Stewart? It is only good on non-sale items, but everything in the Martha section seems to be forever priced at 30% off…
Anyways, sorry for the random ramblings and hope you had a great weekend!
Now we are on our way to my Grandparent’s house, who knows what adventures and treasures will follow there (as they always do)~
