My daughter is off to her 1st Halloween Party tonight.
She's going as Google, or maybe she's a laptop?
I think at 11 (almost 12 and going on 14), it's more about the fedora hat?!
We ironed white lining material to freezer paper to print everything. Basically, you iron the paper (sticky side up) to the material and cut it out in sheet sizes of 8 1/2 x 11, then carefully run it through the printer.
We'll see what the majority of the party-goers thought she was when she returns home tonight.
The weather man said today is our last sunny day for awhile. Here in the NW that means time to pull out the boots and rain jackets (and long johns if you're sitting at any sporting events), old towels to wipe the dogs wet paws, and the vitamin D.
But we truly do have some breath taking foliage happening!
Last week I stopped in the local thrift store looking for books and whatever else caught my eye. (You know how that is.)
I came across several books that I liked for their size, age, color, and, of course, interesting content! I enjoy a good book, but these were going to be used mainly for decorative purposes, and they were 50% off!
I was struck when I opened a couple of them by the sentimental writing in the covers. How sweet!
And, the age of some of these books. 1934!
I'm not sure I could just leave a book, or anything else for that matter, that had a direct note written to me in it....even if it just says "to" and "from". I would probably have to cover the note somehow. I have a hard time taking my kids old sports uniforms to the Goodwill because our last name is usually on it.
I feel kind of lucky to have these books. The original recipient must have meant a lot to the "giver" of the books for them to have taken the time to address a note.
Hope your week is off to a good start!
I'm joining the Nifty Thrifty Tuesday party over at Coastal Charm.
