Oh my goodness. What a summer it was.
Busy, hot and sticky here in Minnesota.
Iced coffee has become a good friend.
There have been great garage sale and antique show finds.
I've kept them under wraps, but they're coming out of hiding.
I don't garage sale nearly as much as I used to.
When I do head out, the finds have been fabulous.
I've been busy working, volunteering and making adventures with my kids.
Finally inspired, I dusted off my weary heart and got creative this weekend.
Amen to a three day holiday!
I made this in my living room.
I find that I can't remind myself to be happy nearly enough.
And seriously, this little scene is pretty damn happy.
That's the goal.
The aqua boots. Goodwill, just thank you. I am not worthy.
Garage sale: The darling doll dress: $2.50. The chalkboard: $2.
The clock: $5 at an antique show this summer.
Metal letters: 60% off at Michael's. (love that app!)
You can always find your Happy.
You can do it. Hopefully on sale. Even better.
The little doll clothes coat.
wool. little blue buttons. lined.
I spotted it in a box of OLD doll clothes at a garage sale.
It was at the end of the day. How does something so darling last all day?
It really was two dollars and fifty cents.
Love at first sight.
For a twist on autumn, I say to all my girlfriends out there:
Stay strong, no matter what your battle.
Why Fall when you can Stand Up?!
Try your best.
Read to the end of the book.
Your story is good.
