Saturday=Fun Day

First off, I want to thank everyone for the sweet comments. They really did help. I even went to Starbucks and got me a couple of free downloads. Thanks for the great ideas. This past Saturday was just what I needed to help get me out of my funk! Kerry meet me for a fun filled day of craft supply shopping, thrifting, and jean shopping! We got a bag of loot from Joann's, I found the most amazing set of vintage luggage, and the perfect pair of skinny jeans for $19!! (and I got a free tshirt...Thanks Old Navy). We spent so much time in the Halloween aisle at Joanns that I am suprised they didn't kick us out.
**We saw this bumper sticker on a minivan at Wal-Mart...it made us chuckle so we had to take a picture**







After our day on the town, we headed back to Poot Manor to make the most adorable Halloween aprons. I also started a leaf and acorn garland but didn't get too far on it. I will take pictures when I get a little more done.



*I ended up added an orange ball trim to the bottom and a skull button in the upper right corner*

Can you tell I am ready for fall?

Oh... My dear friend Leslie made me the most amazing apron for a wedding gift. She even made a heart box to match. The apron is simply perfect. She knows me too well! I kept meaning to take a picture in it but never did! I finally remembered!


You can check out her amazing sewing skills on her blog:

I love this girl and love the name of her company! She is making some adorable tshirts and I can't wait to order mine!

I will leave you with a picture that pretty much summed up my Monday. It was month end which means craziness at work!


Wishing everyone a magical week!
XOXO
