Thrift Shop Fun

Sometimes I love my local thrift shop, especially this week. Since this is the Summer of Pillows for me I decided to see what I could gather up for some upcycled pillows, and the second I walked in the door I knew just what I needed to play with: TIES!!!


Look at these beauties! They don’t make prints like that any more (that is probably a good idea). While it is unlikely that anyone would ever put these around their neck again, I see some some fantastic pillows in the making. I have no idea just what I am going to do with them yet, but I’m pretty sure the ties will show me the way. *Pause as my heart goes pitter-patter*

Oh, and for those of you needing your Bee fix; the little one is now starting in on board games, or a least one: Candyland. Who would have imagined anyone would get so excited about getting their wee plastic figurine to the Rainbow Candy Castle? And of course she beats me every time…

    Also, love boardgames. We even are trying to learn our 6 yr old the basics of Settlers of Catan. So far she has been doing a great job at playing the ‘bank’ of Catan, handing out sheep and bricks to the ‘settlers’. 🙂

    I WANT TO PLAY CANDYLAND WITH HER. But I’m afraid that I was always pretty competitive at Candyland, so perhaps it’s safer this way.

    I owe you a giant thank you and a huge hello, both of which I swear I’m going to send soon.

    Cute! (But I don’t mean the ties ; ))
    My girls love Candyland too. We are also into Blokus Trigon as a family. even the 3 yo is getting the concept. Perfect for the spacial thinking brains of us parents.
