There used to be this Penny Candy Shop where my Grammie lived…. In the summertime she/my mom and dad would give us a dime and we would ride our bikes and fill up our little bags with 10 Swedish Fish. I’m sure it was her and my mom’s way of maybe getting us out of the house for a little bit. We love that shop. It was called Klem’s Penny Candy Shop in Avalon, New Jersey. I wish they still had stores like that that kids could go in and use a dime for a cheap thrill like 10 Swedish Fish.
Homearama is officially here! Somebody wipe my brow;) I am happy with how it turned out….very proud of some of the features of this home. For the next few weeks I will be sharing with you some behind the scenes stuff along with all the pretty pictures. If you are coming to Homearama please stop by house #15 to see me this weekend!! My local photographer friend April Tobbe Photography was a gem and photographed the whole house! If you see the house in person, she also supplied some of my wall art—some gorgeous folks that she has photographed in the past.
I’ve been shopping car insurance for the past 3 days….that makes me legally insane right? Twins have been expensive in the past….but insurances cost for 2 new drivers has more than doubled our car insurance premiums….. .Ouch….ouch….ouch…So to reduce some stress around here I have hit the sewing machine again:) I wanted to come up with an easy project that would utilize some of my fabric scraps. These key chains are for sale over at Lullebelle’s and I’ll be listing some in my etsy shop too.
Hey all! Hope you had a great weekend….We caught up with friends and did a few outdoor projects. I also hit the sewing machine on Sunday to crank out a few more clutch purses. Go see them this week at LuluBelle’s here in Norton Commons:)
I wanted to share with you a project that we did not complete ourselves….we hired this one out. Our carpenter friend Bob (Bob the builder we affectionately call him:) built it for us. He has built us decks and finished out our basements in the past…and we knew that he was much more versed on pergola building then we were:)
Hey hey….Derby week here in the Bluegrass!! Busy week for sure…I am going to share with you a yummy Derby brunch recipe this week that features a Kentucky proud product (starts with a B and ends with OURBON:) Editing those pics now…. Hope you are having a great start to the week…
I told you last week that I am working on putting together a few decorations for my nephew’s high school graduation party graduation. It has been fun dreaming up and creating some unique features for his celebration. So is was perfect timing when my friends at Martha Stewart sent me a fun package and invited me to create a craft to use for a party this season.
