Four Random Things and a thank you!

Thank you very much for the lovely birthday wishes you gave me. You made my day special!





1. I made this apron for Molly using the last bit of farm animal fabric that I dearly love. I am learning to do this more and more instead of stashing it and never using it.







2. A well travelled older style mayonnaise jar that I bought at a yard sale as I was driving cross country this summer. We stayed at an out of the way place in Pennsylvania and wouldn't you know there was a town wide yard sale that Saturday morning? Which is just what our car filled to the brim with children and stuff needed. I haven't decided what to do with it. Any ideas?





3. I like to stick figurines in my plants. Do you? This plant needs cooler weather, it's called baby tears.




4. Recently Sam, Molly and I started this book. After a few chapters over a few days I took the book to bed and finished it without them. Because I am nice and it was good and Davy Crockett was trapped fighting at the Alamo. I won't tell you how it ended. What? Like you are going to read it? He died at the Alamo. Did you already know this? How come I didn't? There I was in the middle of the night reading this old mildewy book and shedding tears over Davy Crockett. I just thought he was that guy who liked the frontier and wore a coonskin cap.

What a sweet little apron! I love that fabric and it is precious made into an apron. I would probably just put the jar on a shelf...I put a few empty jars on top of my cabinet! lol The little fairy is sweet...and the book sounds like one I would read, too. We watched a series called, Texas so I knew the end of the Davy Crockett story. I couldn't ever watch that movie again and we just recently gave it away to the library. Have a good evening! Thanks for sharing!

Good job on the apron -- that fabric is the cutest. Never let her wear it -- keep it hanging near the craft table like you are ABOUT to let her wear it. That's what I do with my cute aprons :)

...you are too funny about Davy Crockett, but this is what I love about being a mom. You read stuff you wouldn't ordinarily and then you learn stuff. And then you cry.

You could keep buttons in your jar...

xoxo!

I would take that jar, and cut up little pieces of paper. I'd ask the kids to write down a "Fun Thing to Do on a Rainy Day" on each piece of paper. Include your own ideas of course, and throw in a few silly ones too. Maybe include a few silly requests, like Sam has to shovel the horse poop wearing nothing but a sweet little apron, Spiderman underoos and his rubber boots. And every rainy day when the house feels closed in and the kids are going bananas - pull the jar down off the shelf Lavender Dreamer suggests, and let the afternoon become a life of its own!
