Goodwill finds...

...& a few new things
around the house.
Excited to start
decorating for
the holidays.

First... project for the year.
Grapevine words with
the addition of glitter &
strips of fabric.
I'll decide where to hang
them after I put up the tree.

Another baby book...

...& this one has lots of color.
It says "baby girl we love you".
I really like the way it turned out.

Organized... craft area this weekend &
got started on a couple more projects.
I found the crate I'm using to store my
fabrics at the Goodwill for $1.
I stuck the fabric in the little slots
& hung it on the wall, so much better.
Oh how i love a good deal!
Final pics of the antique book wall
art coming soon...

Cute book...

...for baby Reagan.
Her room was decorated
in yellow, black & white...
it's adorable & was refreshing
to see a little girl's room
in a color other than pink.
Love the creativity &
so excited for Ash & Chris!

The family...

...gathering to celebrate
Shirley's life.
