Show Off!

Just wanted to show off my latest purchases from Scrumdidlyump!

I'm all a twitter to turn my Knot into a necklace, the green is just too perfect! Egg cup for my PB M&M's, a Scrumdidlyump famous spoon, and this sa-weet little pinch pot.

In the back are my latest scores from the library book sale. A Gregg Shorthand, Sewing Made Easy, and a typing lesson book (for typewriters). Awesome :)

Slowly but surely

Progress for my Deluxe stash:

I finally feel like I'm getting *there*!
One of my favorites.... lots of really fantastic bags in this bunch :)
I think I counted 55 Half-Pint's and 16 Mini's. Whoa Nelly!

The truly terrible lighting is due to the storm that's rolling in, gonna be a good one!

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Efraim's Daughter Longstocking

Daughter of Captain Efraim Longstocking, formerly the Terror of the Sea, now a cannibal king. But everybody calls me Pippi :)

Today is 'dress as your favorite book character' at school. My little bit of sweetness chose Pippi obviously, so fitting. Let's just say she's always been very... um... experimental with her outfits ;) She loved getting to have her hair dyed, hopefully it is truly temporary!
I made her apron and Mr. Nilsson's hat, first time ever making a hat out of a toilet paper roll and rubber band. The petticoat was totally her idea "I think it's something Pippi would like to wear".
I'll be smiling all day :)

Puppy Fever

I've got it bad. BAD. I already have a name picked out and everything! I've had dreams, I've looked at leashes and sweaters. Hubs is on board as long as it doesn't ever need us to buy it a car or send it to college :)

Oh! New shoes! Sweet huh :)
Eco Sneaks by Simple, on clearance for $25.
Happy girl :)
