Bday adventures at the lake and a few vintage finds...

Thank you for wishing Emma a happy 17th birthday!  
We did a quick over night and celebrated Emma's birthday at the lake.  

We found these vintage looking signs at our local $ store.

The arrows weren't exactly pointing in the right direction, so I did a little duck tape magic.
Back on Mother's day, we attended the Grand Rapids Vintage Street Market and I came home with a couple of woodland themed items.
Mr.  Bear now resides inside the A-frame and my sister has already informed me that he might end up visiting her home in the near future.

It's another busy work week, but I'm looking forward to the long holiday weekend and my own birthday on Sunday.  Emma and I are exactly 7 days apart in our birthdays.  May is an expensive month for Chris.  Smile.

Take time and smell the flowers this week. XOXO

Our anniversary and Mother's Day is in May. Then in June, my birthday and both of the kids! Poor Brian :-)

I love how you get to decorate two homes! Especially when each is so different.

Have a great week!
