Oh The Things You Can Find!

Many apologies dear blog reader(s), as I have been remiss in my postings of late. The truth is that I have been out bargain hunting, finding ways to spend the last $4 to my name, and making sure the children have nice things to keep them dry. Both Boo and Baby have recently lost their raincoats at school, which is a very bad thing indeed here in the sunny Pacific Northwest. It did however lead me to find the buy of the century at my local Value Village, as I was able to find this coat for $1.99. Please take a moment to Oooh and Ahhh over it with me won't you?
The jacket was such a bargain because it was found missing all of it's buttons, but Mummie Dearest loves her little Poopsie so much that she sewed lovely new posie buttons until her fingers bled. Luckily the coat is slightly too large for Boo, so we hope to get much more mileage this time. I could just cry over the beauty of this striped lining, couldn't you? What a perfect jacket for my dainty little Boo. Who by the way, came home from her slumber party this Saturday and was promptly found like this.
Apparently staying up until one in the morning at age 8 is no easier the next day than it is at age 32.



I spent a wonderful day today with Tif shopping for girl things like doors

and doorknobs
You could find anything you wanted at the ReStore in Seattle, including a fish tank with real fish inside a TV.

Believe it or not I've ALWAYS WANTED a fishtank inside of a TV, and once upon a time had even purchased the perfect old console television to do it with. Alas, it was not to happen for me.

Spending time with Tif did what it always does, which is give me new ideas for sewing and renewed hope for my little shop on etsy. So I must be off for more sewing!

You look LOVELY! I wouldn't lie about something like that... if it weren't true I'd say something vague like you look 'happy' or 'thorough'...

Love the raincoat. Remember when we wanted an old bubblegum machine turned into a fishtank? I was always afraid that if I did that I would dispense one!!! Bubblefish or Fishgum, yum! The TV tank would've fit in your black room that is for sure.
