Cabin fever? I've got it bad. We are on spring break right now and I had made so many plans for the boys...instead, we had to cancel all play dates Monday and Tuesday due to Julen running a fever. Then today, just when we were beginning to believe spring was here...we got more snow.
My boys turned on some crazy cleaning energy and completely emptied out the attic crawl space upstairs. I realize the true motivation behind the frenzy was their idea to make a little hide out in there. How could I just stick stuff in there and give it no more thought? Eight large bags of clothing were packed up, four large bags of garbage and just about every issue of Martha Stewart Living dating back to the very beginning were dragged out of there. And of course there were some surprises...there are always surprises!
These two vintage dresses...later, I'll have to get a better photo to share.
They are mint crisp...and no doubt from my old travel-for-work days. You have to love a country who will put an author on their money. So...what to do with Francs these days?
I'm anxiously waiting to hear if my pincushion for the swap arrived to it's destination. Here's a sneak peek.
Do you crochet? I've been watching Adaiha turn out square after square this year and now she's told me about Melissa's A Square a Day in May. I'm inspired and oh so curious. I've done a little bit of crochet, but have never tried a square. This one I made this afternoon using this tutorial.
So anyone else still feeling numb since the devestation in Japan? One way to do something to help is to go to Crafting for Courage to see what a group of wonderful women will be offering to sell tomorrow to raise money for Save the Children in Japan. 100% of the proceeds will be donated. Help spread the word if you haven't already.
