fat & happy

Thanks for all your birthday wishes over the weekend! That Amy sure is sneaky. It was a swell birthday and two birthday dinners, two birthday cakes (thanks Katie and Tim!) and a box full of cookies (thanks Amy!) later I’m stuffed and happy. I got some great loot too including these antique mall finds from my in-laws. I picked them out last Fall during their visit and like a good birthday girl, had completely forgotten about them, so I was very happily surprised.

The gal on the left is a napkin holder and the fellow on the right a crayon box.

And thanks for the wonderful plastic raspberry suggestions! I think it was a very well spent $3 at the thrift store. I love all the ambitious garland/topiary suggestions but I think I’ll tuck some away for a future pin or sweater adornment of some sort and also some for a spring chapter of make-a-long maybe. The rest I’m going to pack up and send out into the world to see what becomes of them.

This weekend I finally found the right fabric to finish up my baby quilt idea and a certain little someone’s preschool starts up again this week so I have high hopes of a finished project soon.

    There’s a crayon/pencil holder similar to your at my parents’ house. I think it might have been my dad’s when he was little. There’s a bunch of cool old toys of his there. I can only imagine that they’re a small portion of what he actually had. Maybe I’ll take some pictures of what’s there when I’m back at their house in a couple of weeks.
