While I have found many amazing items at thrift shops this Summer, some times I run across some crazy items for sale. On the left a used disposable razor, the thrift shop this was in has had some real crazy items for sale over the years, but the razor was pretty great!
The watering can isn’t odd except it was one of the favors at my Easter Crafternoon. I bought the little pitchers on sale 2 for $1 and then added a Easter sticker from my stash to the front of each one (and then added easter grass & candy etc) It was just so funny to see one at a Antique shop for sale.
When going through old photos on my laptop I realized I never really got to share any real photos of the stuff I made for the Golden Years show
. My book choice was I Can Fly by Mary Blair. I had originally picked two books, but when it came down to making things-I Can Fly just inspired me the most.
I had recently purchased myself a jigsaw and am still having fun cutting things out with it. My time was divided between painting/drawing stuff up in the studio or embroidering downstairs.
Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, most of them were taken on my phone.
I’ve uploaded new items to my Society6 shop
. You can find prints, pillows, phone cases, laptop skins, and more! Society6 is offering free worldwide shipping through Sunday.
Back in May I received an email from the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club
, asking me to share it on the blog. I didn’t have a chance to check out the website right away, but I finally made a profile and signed up for a round of pen-pal sign ups and was paired up with a lovely gal in the UK.
I love writing letters and of course I have a passion for letter writing supplies (cute stickers & stationary)
The next round opens up on August 15th, and it’s all free…just create an account and then sign up to be paired with a pen pal.
I realized I never finished blogging about my trip to Fort Lauderdale Fl, so here ya go! Saturday was the Yummy Meet & Greet at Tate’s
.If you are visiting or live in Florida-it’s worth a trip, that place is amazing!
Thank you so much to everyone who came out & got things signed. Everyone was so awesome and nice! I didn’t get any photos during the signing, but Tom took the ones up there for me.
On the way back into Fort Lauderdale from the signing we spotted this adorable gingerbread bakery, so we turned around. It was extra exciting when we realized they were still open for ten more minutes and had vegan baked goods! Tom got a oatmeal raisin cookie, I got a gingerbread man, and B got a chocolate muffin that he said was the best he had ever tasted.
Despite my sunscreen I managed to burn the top of one of my shoulders! The only place I must have missed when apply sunscreen haha…not bad for three days in the sun! Please excuse the messy hotel bathroom. I loved the hotel we stayed at, the Sheraton right on the beach. Not only do they have the mermaid show in their pool, but they also give you a five dollar voucher for each day you refuse housekeeping. I don’t like my sheets tucked in, so I never want my bed made anyway. We cashed in our vouchers for coffee since they had a Starbucks in the lobby. We also saw quite a lot of fast thunder showers in Florida, which is always so cool to watch. The storms roll in and out so quickly.
All in all it was a great trip, the only downer being the heat….but hot weather in Florida in June is to be expected!
