Good morning.... I have lost my voice today. And not it's not too surprising that my kids are having some fun with that so far today. So, seeing as I'm struggling to get out the things I need to say this morning (mainly "eat your breakfast" and "don't tease your brother"), it is so refreshing right now to sit and write. My inner voice, at least, cannot be silenced. Not that I have any deep and profound mantra to share with you right now, instead just a little ditty about enjoying summer.
Last week, my dentist emailed me to let me know about a Yard Sale that was happening at a cute little shop in her town. See, it pays off when everyone you know is aware of your fabric-addiction. :) Cute as a Button is an adorable little baby item shop in the historic downtown of Powell, Ohio. Specialty shops, charming antique shops, etc. A delightful place to spend an afternoon.
I packed up the stroller and took the boys over to the Yard Sale. Make a mental note!! When crafty shops have a Yard Sale, there are bound to be some goodies involved. There were lots of sewing and quilting supplies, books, fabric and scrapbooking supplies. A mother-daughter team own the shop, and I think one of them were destashing. Fat quarters were 25 cents!
Here are the few items I picked up. There was also a neat little basket of vintage linens mixed in with the fabrics. I found this little embroidered table runner also for 25 cents. Crazy! Now it's sitting on my dining room table charming visitors to my home.
Of course, I wasn't able to leave without a few little toys and books for the boys, but it was a beautiful summer day to be out and about shopping the town with my little men. We ended the trip with some chocolate ice cream. :)
