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.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

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!
