Despite the insane crazy wind gusts and incredibly cold temps, my mother, sister and myself braved our first outdoor Allegan Antique market of 2014 on Sunday. It was quite the adventure!!
I'm being brave posting this group selfie. We were so cold!!! Emma's group selfie from Easter was much prettier. hee hee.
I had summer on the brain when I picked up this salt water taffy tin.
The tin has already found a new home in our beach-themed bathroom.
The Effanbee doll has made new friends in my craft room.
The miniature log cabins and maple syrup containers will be added my cabin collection.
I think my favorite purchase of the day were these camp stools.
While running errands last Saturday in preparation for Easter, there happened to be an estate sale advertised within a few miles of our house. It was day 2 of the sale and everything was 50% off. The dolls are in great condition, but they need some Kim K. clothes.
Lucky for me, a few holiday goodies were still sitting in the basement.
That black cat with the orange striped scarf is a big winner.
Several years ago, we made a couple of minion Easter eggs based on the Despicable Me movie.
This picture was from 2011.
This year the girls have fallen in love with the movie Frozen and so we decided to make the snowman Olaf out of two of our non-dyed eggs.
Out came my glue gun, marker, yarn, googly eyes and pipe cleaners.
Isn't he rather cute?
Of course, we also made a few dyed eggs. I don't know who has more fun decorating eggs (me or the girls)!
Another familiar Easter tradition is the return of Mr. Easter Bunny to the front porch.
Mr. Easter Bunny is sporting a new pink bow this year and I added some Christmas lights and plastic eggs to the window box. I have a few more things to share later this week. Until then, Easter hugs from our house to your own!!
PS. We woke up to fresh snow this morning.
I'm sure no one is surprised, but I had to document it on the blog.
Today is only a high of 36 but we are expected to see 50s later this week.
In 2008, we traveled to China to adopt a toddler who needed
heart surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot and hand surgery to remove an extra thumb. I'm always happy to share our experience with SN adoption. When I'm not at work, you might find me at an thrift/antique store or estate sale. I also love to sneak in a craft project and decorate our multiple dollhouses with my girls.
Come play with me!

In 2008, we went to the Jiangxi Province to adopt a little girl who needed open-heart surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot and hand surgery to remove an extra thumb. I'm always happy to share our experience with a SN adoption with others.
When I'm home from work, I love to sneak in a weekly craft project or a trip to my favorite antique/thrift stores. Come play with me!
