Well. Once I uploaded the photos it sure seems like all we found today were purchases. But we have had a really fun day today. F and I dropped off her sister and came back home for a leisurely breakfast. After some serious play dough work, the sun came out, the wind died down and we decided to head out for a couple of hours of gift shopping. We hit two areas around here – Webster Groves and Maplewood – and I think we made out like a bandit. First on the list, a hostess gift. Then a few cute things from Verde Kids for the little one to fill a slight gap in the hand-me-downs.
Some birthday gifts for a talented writer and artist…
…and maybe even a talented seamstress…
And then I finally got over to Maven – I’ve been wanting to for awhile, but never seem to do it. F’s not the type to do a lot of window shopping – she’s a hands on girl for sure. But I gave her a couple of hedgehog fingernail brushes to hold and shopped and smelled my way through all the custom made soapy goodness.
And I really couldn’t pass up this cupcake shaped bath bomb for my bath bomb-loving daughter (who happens to be named after a great aunt whose nickname is “Sookie”). Full circle, you see?
And one quick trip back to the Fabric Nosherie where I got three small pieces of fabric that I absolutely adore. I have a few materials in mind for F’s curtains (eventually!) – not these – and I really have no idea what I’m going to do with them, but I loved them. If F didn’t have sixteen burpies of her own (!) I’d make her some with these.
And these cars. Oh, the cars. Finding lots of sweet things for sweet people – and inspiration to boot. Hope this Friday finds you well and finding a bit of weekend inspiration yourself. Please share!
