Flea Finds

We hit up the local flea market in Raleigh last weekend and had a blast. I hadn't been there in several years, so the little man had never gone, but he loved it. It ended up being a great place to make a ten dollar bill go extremely far on the toy purchasing scale. I actually said to my friend with me, "why in the world would I ever visit the toy department in Target again when I can come here?"

My most favorite booth, one that has been there for years, is of old home hardware. It has boxes and boxes of old glass doorknobs, drawer pulls, keys and hinges. Great place to find some fun and unusual art materials, or add some vintage flair to a home.

My single purchase (for myself) was an old Durham Diary milk bottle, for five dollars. It's currently filled with flowers and sitting in the center of my kitchen table.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
