my list..

this is the beginning of my christmas list. hehe
might as well get a head start, right?
the theme for this year is old school..the above polaroid camera is from amazon.
i have been eyeing them for a while and i think i want this one.
they are in my price range too.
i may not wait until christmas to get this tho..ha!

these are from etsy
however i think i am going to ask my gran for these for christmas.
she is on a tight budget and what i really want is...
local florence, alabama businesses match books.
they can go in my alabama bathroom!:)

this is also from etsy but i don't need this exact one.
i'd like a few pieces of folk art. i love the ones done on wood..however
im not that picky. the first folk art piece i'd like is of a church.

i also wouldn't mind a few vintage art pieces.
not the creepy ones of people tho, i just can't get into those.;)
maybe the Lord's prayer vintage and framed!:)

i am hunting currently for metal vintage baskets or bins.
if i can't find those maybe some one in nashville could find me one or six?

a few to add to my crafting to-do list..

currently i am growing out my hair which is really hard as you ladies know.
i have had short hair for two years now and i think it is time.
well i have so many things i'd like to do with my hair.
1. braid it myself
2. braid it into a fish tail braid then do this.
3. possibily bleach pieces of it then dye it turquoise like this.
4. i can't wait to have a real solid ponytail again.
5. i cant wait to have my natural wave back!!:)

while searching some of my favorite blogs i came across this.
in our ladies cave aka the basement craft room we have a beat up coffee table.
i am so doing the above craft to make it amazing instead of yick.:)
i love finding new and amazing things to do!

i am planning on trying to put yarn in my hair sooner rather than later.

ps sister you should do it too.;)

last week crafting..

last week we made elmo masks.
yes they are just silly paper ones but so much fun came out of them!
all the kiddos under 3 i know love love love elmo!

here henry is showing off his mask which he wore all day!;)here seber is elmo.
i think i made adult sized masks for baby sized heads, oops!

since the boys got to be elmo...i decided clare should be a flower girl.
isn't her homemade head piece precious??
it matched her outfit so well!:)
she didn't mind wearing it at all.

just some silly kiddos crafts from last week!:)
i hope you enjoyed them.

see ya summer!

at the beginning of the summer these sweet boys played
with their new water table for the first time.
it wasn't that long ago but they have grown so much over the past 5 months.
here are some see ya summer pictures from the
start of our first summer together.

here is baby a with his amazing hair.
he wasn't able to stand/walk just yet, but he started two months later.:)
this is baby s thrilled about the water!
he was such a crazy baby when it comes to water and he still is now!

here we are our first summer together and our first hot day.

this was such a fun day.
today is a rainy pittsburgh day. this may be a theme for the rest of the week.
we are excited about fall and welcoming it!
we can eat pumpkin flavored stuff, go to on hayrides and play in leaves.
this fall will be an exciting one as the boys continue to learn more
and grow. however id like them to stay 1 and 1/2 forever.

once upon a wednesday..

today was make teddy bear bread day.
when i was little my momma use to make these with me and my sister.
this bread is adorable and i remember it from my childhood.
so i have passed it on to my favorite kiddos.
here is our bread making day.
the hen man did great with adding the dry ingredients!
this brought me such joy.
he just loves to be a helper and i try to be patient and today was perfect.

putting the bears together after we let it rise for an hour.
adding ears, nose, feet and hands.
then we let these rise for 45 minutes.
the waiting process about killed henry he wanted to eat these bears so bad.

the bears before the rose.:)
the largest bear is the one henry built.
i thought it was hilarious that his was so large!

putting the cranberries(bc we didn't have raisins) in the bears.
the eyes and buttons. i was nervous about their sizes but they turned out alright.

these are looking just like they are suppose to!
this really took me back to being a kiddo.
i loved it, probably more than the kids.

oh man these were a BIG hit! this big huge bear was almost gone by the end of the day.
he was in love with eating this!
the bears(well there were 7 total). the littlest one we call clare bear.;)

little seb liked his alot too! he was thrilled about the cranberries!

this was without a doubt my favorite thing i have done in months!
so glad i could bring my kiddos a little taste of what being
a kid in my mom's house was like!
i brought one home for shea. he was impressed!

a saturday thrift...

so today my roomie kristin and i ventured out to two flea markets.
one of our favorite ones is in verona, pa.
i found these treasures there!

this picture is a pring of yard that is 5x7 and will be hung in our craft room.
:) i love the colors in this piece.

this is one of the two rugs i bought.
this one is a runner that is in our upstairs hallway.
i fell in love with it and the price was right!:)
the other rug is round and blue and white. its at our front door.<3

this is my new hat box which i made my button collection holder.
it is turquoise with paisleys all over it. it's beautiful!

this is a bench i love.
there is a bench theme going on inside me right now.
i think im over chairs and only want benches.
this one was wayyy too much $$$!
but it's super duper old and i love it.
there was also a wooden white bench i love.
it was covered in junk so i didn't take a picture, but it looked nothing like this one.
i love benches.
this was such a fun trip. i spent 2 hours in the flea market.
no lie i couldve spent all day there.
it is hands down the best place in pittsburgh that i know of.
