when the boys are away...

My guys left for an end of the summer camping & fishing trip this morning. So, what's a girl to do all alone for 3 days. Well, today I picked up my mom and we got pedicures and went out to lunch at a yummy place called The Eating Room--pulled pork sandwiches, sweet potato fries and iced tea. It's such a cute place all decorated with chickens everywhere and the best food. Then we shopped until we dropped. We found some wonderful vintage sewing and crafting goodies at our favorite thrift shop. I spent a whopping $10.83 and got a new speedball brayer, an old PIT game with fantastic 50's cards, 6 kimono shaped chipboard coasters, some wonderful buttons, sequin pins, copper acrylic paint, gold metallic elastic cord, tiny googlie eyes, 20 yards of 1/8" black ribbon, 50 yards of blue grosgrain ribbon, 2 books of old sheet music, a package of silver snowflake sequins, and a pack of 8 green cards with envies. Also in with all of this I got a cool pair of Quicksilver shorts for the kiddo. It was a great girly day.

I think tomorrow will be a creative day and then on Saturday is another shopping adventure at Stampington's parking lot sale. Maybe I'll hit a yard sale or two on the way. No pics until the guys get back since they have the camera. I hope you are having a creative day.
