It's Friday...see what I found!

My greatest find makes me want to cry. Literally. On Wednesday my kiddos and I went for a walk on main street.  There where these AMAZING little people chairs that were PERFECT for my time out chair that I am envisioning.  Better yet...$6.99 a piece.  Since we still were walking I decided I would come back for them.  Well when we got back they were locking up the door.  I almost cried.  So I decided to come back Thursday after I dropped Lotte off at day care.  And BAM! they were gone.  I feel like someone stole them from me.  But I have no one to blame but myself.

Moral of the story...if you find a GREAT find...find a way to get it then before someone else finds it.

Another find...a possible dining room table via craigslist...wait for future post!

During our flea market walk on main street I made this great find.

Tons of awesome vintagy buttons! I'm going to do a dining room decor project with the white ones, and the brass-y ones are going to be used for my master bed room fake roman shades.  And they were only $1.00!

Notice the back ground that the buttons are one...this is my favorite find!

Two vintage pillowcases for $1.00!!! I LOVE the print and the sweet little ruffle at the opening.  I'm going to make Lotte a spring dress with these!

This bad boy was found in my garage last week.  When the previous owner re-sided the house and garage he just covered over the old windows in the garage.  This is the last known survivor.  And he is going to make a beautiful addition to my kitchen.  I'm almost through with it...give me a few days to post how lovely he turns out!

Lotte made a great find too! The sneaky Leprechaun snuck all kinds of green food into her big girl back pack that she takes to day care.  She had a shamrock shaped waffle, green yogurt, and green grapes for breakfast; and she had shamrock shaped sandwich, broccoli, and green cottage cheese for lunch.  And of course green milk.

And another St. Patrick's Day find...a SICK little girl.  We woke up last night at 10:30 to a screaming toddler.  We went to get her and she was running a 103.5 degree temperature and appeared to be in pain.  We called the exchange and they told us to go to the ER.  The doctor there was not my friend.  He made up his mind before he even saw her that she had an ear infection.  He looked at me as if I were a crazy over protective mom who brought in her ear ache infested child.  I wasn't happy.  We got home at 12:30.  I called her pediatrician this morning who already received the notes from the exchange and called for her ER chart.  She told us to come in immediately.  After running several tests which Lotte and Mommy both despised, we were told she does NOT have an ear infection, but she does have a virus.  We are very thankful it isn't anything worse, and she is getting lots of love and cuddles today.

In fact here is what she had for lunch...

A peanut butter banana popsicle! She looks like she feels just fine in this picture.  I'm sure the frozen banana and pb on a stick helps.  She LOVEs eating things on a stick!


  1. I'm so glad that she's feeling better! That is so scary that the Dr. didn't take time to figure out what was going on.

    I love all of your ideas on how to have green food!

  2. Also....I'm SUPER excited to see what you do with the old window. I always love things like that but am not sure how to make them cute and work with my decor.
