Free Day Friday!

Emma has mid-winter break today and I'm taking a vacation day from work (insert squealing). I’ve promised to take her to the mall and to see the Justin Bieber movie (no comment) but in return we get to visit a couple of my favorite thrift/antique stores (insert squealing again)!

I worked in my craft room last night and managed to create a felt cherry pie from my plastic thrifted cherries for Josie. I realize the stems should be removed, but I just couldn't bring myself to take the cherries apart. In case you want to make a few felt pies for yourself, I think red pom poms would also substitute nicely for cherries. More felt food creations can be found here on my blog.

I mentioned in this post that the wooden play stove was mine growing up, but I thought you might also like to see Josie's stash of tin dishes. I found the dish cupboard two years ago at the Allegan Antique market and I've been collecting tin dishes for several years.

Josie isn't the only one that enjoys tin dishes.

I've got a few of my favorites on display in my craft room.

Happy Friday, dear friends!
May your weekend be a crafty one!

I'm so glad Savannah is too old for Justin Bieber, but I'm sure the two of you gals will have a marvelous time anyway! The pie is adorable, and I would have totally left the stems on too.

And the tiny china hutch? If it's ever missing, I have it.

Adorable pie-the stems belong in the pie!
love the inserted squeals-I am (silently) squealing on my way to Orlando. love this iPad so I can stay in touch in the car.
Enjoy your day-who knows-you may fall in love with Justin Bieber! LOL
