Its beautiful here today. A nice sunny, perfect day with temperatures in the high sixties. My girls and I went out for a bit and I stopped at JoAnns to pick up jewelry supplies. I didn't find what I was looking for, but I ended up finding a pretty red dress with fairy wings on clearance for $10. I've been looking everywhere for something like this and couldn't find it let alone for a price like that. She's going to be a little devil for Halloween. My older girl will be an angel but her costume is easy to find. Anyway, I also found this little birdhouse for $6 in the clearance aisle. I've been wanting some birdhouses, but they're surprisingly expensive every time I come across them.
I also finally hung some of my lace edge dishes above the doorway between my dining room and living room. I've been wanting to do this for a while, but needed to collect the dishes. The two on the outside were finds at the mansion flea market last weekend. They have some stains I was unable to remove despite trying every suggestion possible, but since they were for wall hanging, I'm fine with it. I want to do this over the back door in my kitchen, but I need to find more dishes.
I also found this little teapot in my favorite Delaware thrift store for about $3.
I painted it white and put it up along with the two dishes that did not have the matching cups that we purchased.
I get a lot of comments from people asking where I find the time to do things. First, I'm home most of the week. I know on days that I work, I come home like a zombie and there's no way I can start decorating, crafting, sewing, etc. I do things with my girls around. Here they are in the next room as I was hanging the dishes. My little one is currently in my lap reading a book.
