sunshine & coffee


sunshine. coffee.
window shopping. antiques.
 thrift & used book stores.

time with my
daughter.

memories made.

what a great way to spend
a friday!


look at this throw i found
while thrifting.
it was a whole $2 :)
i washed it up 
and love
the fall colors!


and then
oh my goodness,
i called my daughter over
because i couldn't 
believe what i had
just found...
a vintage chalkboard
on sale for $3.25
i almost screamed
but, instead 
hastily picked
the prize up and 
held it close to my
chest until i 
payed the cashier! :)
it will look adorable 
in our playroom
for the grandkids!

we are planning
to finish yard work
and do a bit
of decorating
for tomorrow's event.

what do you have
planned for today
or for the weekend?

whatever it is
i wish you;
joy and happiness!

let's shine.

We have been working hard to get our school room and curriculum all ready for our 22nd year of homeschooling. So, I am trying to finish up that project today. I "only" have 4 kids at home this year (for the first time in 24 years), so am excited to really be able to focus on these youngest 4.

Hoping to take a few hours in the sunshine this weekend . . . don't want it to get away from us without enjoying it.

Hugs!

What a great way to spend the day. Love those finds. V sleeps with her Dad's baby blanket which is similar to yours. Love it.

Melody,
You spent a beautiful day yesterday.
Time with your daughter, thrift store (a good thing), found some treasures, and working in the yard.
Pure joy in my mind.
