My Favorite things today...

Absolutely beautiful thrift store find. Inntrax Twig Crayons are from Poland.
These crayons are handmade from found twigs in nature.
Spaghetti sauce and salsa made from 40 lbs. of tomatoes from our farm...
lots of work but it will totally be worth it in March when I am missing summer!
This print was a gift from my mom - Thanks Mom, I love it! You can find the artist here.
Amazing table I got from a garage sale fora whole $4. I heart garage sales!
Getting all three of my kids to look at the same time when I take a picture...amazing.

I love old things. I have been collecting vintage items for the last few years just because it is something I love. I buy items that I can use such as pyrex bowls, hand mixers, butter dishes, salt and pepper shakers, old quilts, etc. I love using these items because they make me happy. I love their design and style. It has become a challenge for me to find unique and fun items...a treasure hunt that I go on whenever I go thrifting or to yard sales. I am always surprised with what I find and that is what makes it so exciting and kinda addicting. A few weeks ago, I went to a garage sale and stumbled on to two boxes full of vintage sewing patterns from the 40s and 50s. I bought them all. They are amazing and beautiful and I want to make them so I can wear them. Aren't they so very cool? Of course, my project list is all ready a mile long, so I am going to sell these beauties and share the vintage goodness with others.

We went to the farm this weekend for Harvestival.
The weather was beautiful and it was nice to get out of town even if it was just for a few hours.
Meet Petunia the Donkey
We had so much fun in the hay maze...i think the girls could have played there all day long!
These cool painted school buses are home to the farm's chickens. They are full of nesting boxes. I love the phrase "Plant Peace Harvest Love"
Enjoying some of the farms Raspberries for a snack.

Sad and Wonderful

My first baby turns five today. I can't believe five years have gone by. I feel sad and wonderful all at the same time. We celebrated her birthday this weekend with all our amazing friends...she felt so loved on by everyone. Where is the pause button so I can just keep her here for a while? Happy Birthday to my Sunshine Girl!
