Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful

Last week it was raining hard when I was making those framed quotes in the studio...and then I came upstairs to THIS:

 Which became this gorgeous, almost black and white photo op:












 And then became a dark blue evening:


Which became a beautiful sunny day to take the kids sledding:



And now that it is nearly melted, it is raining again and I think the snow is also going to make a repeat visit. Bring it on.

Enjoy your day, Sonya

Booth 316 at Memory Lane


Good Morning! Thought you would like to see what the booth looks like without all the Valentines Day hearts and red accents.

I pulled in a wooden shelf along the left side so I could add a few more shelved items instead of hanging right now. It is pretty dark and not very Spring-like, but it is serving its purpose at the moment.

All the kitchen items are new-to-the-booth as well...most of them are larger and make for a shipping nightmare, so right now will see if they get sold here or if they will be moved over to the Etsy Shop.

I have SUCH a weakness for vintage kitchen...it is so difficult to walk past these fabulous cake stands and serving trays and not scoop them up. They all represent such a lovely era!

Today is going to be spent in the Studio creating some fun framed goodies, cleaning up some computer files and getting book work and tax information pulled together for my accountant. Hmmmm...I think the 'work' will get done first and then the 'play'.

Enjoy your day,
Sonya

Snow, Fevers, Legos and Music

Well, Good Wednesday Morning! How it is Wednesday, I am unsure. We had a snow day on Monday. Tuesday Bud went back to school, but Lu was still home with a fever and a deep need for sleep and iced apple juice. Today, everyone is feeling good and are where they are supposed to be!

My lamp post pretending to be in Narnia

 By late Monday afternoon we were done playing and shoveling the snow, done reading our books, done watching movies and just simply done in general. Which was the perfect time to bring out the Harry Potter Lego's that I had set aside just for this type of moment.
 Bud is really into Lego's right now. Big Time. So much so that I keep eyeing the Harry Potter Hogwarts Lego Castle every time I go to Target...just waiting for that baby to go clearance.



Let's see...snow...fevers...Lego's...Music! If you scroll down to the very bottom of the blog, you will find the music that I am listening to right now. It changes often. I am LOVING the Cold Play single!

And now, I am off to visit Memory Lane and remove a whole lotta construction paper hearts.

Enjoy your day, Sonya

Valentine's Day At Memory Lane




Yesterday morning was spent foofing up the booth at Memory Lane and making far too many construction paper Valentine hearts. I forgot how much I liked making those as a little girl!
Enjoy your day,

Where To Find Me These Days...

In an effort to clean up my side-bar just a bit (my decluttering is reaching amazing levels these days!), I removed several of my personal links to sort of streamline it a bit.

This blog is where I do most of my talking. But if you have a hankering, you can also follow along on:

--Facebook

--Twitter

--Etsy

--YouTube

--Pinterest

Enjoy your day!

Recent Adds To Etsy




Thanks to several days of Happy Sunshine, I was able to get a LOT of pictures taken and new items are now starting to be added to Dime Store Thrift On Etsy!

It is always a good week when I get done what I set out to do.

The weather looks like it's going to be changing here for the next few days with either a HUGE snowstorm, or else Sioux City missing the snow entirely. Either way, we are going to be nesting and I am bringing in firewood by the armfuls today.


Enjoy your weekend,

Sonya
