I have been going on a sale shopping spree in the past few weeks, scooping up all of the darling girl's clothing that are on winter clearance. I started at Gymboree:
Check out that adorable fair isle snowflake collar!
The leggings have little "sprinkles" on them, like on top of the cupcake!
I know, there are sparklies on all of these. I love my girly-girl clothes!!!
Look what I found on clearance at an adorable local children's clothing/toy store:
When Hope saw it, she loved it!!! I sort of wish that I could get away with wearing bell bottoms with flowers on the cuff. I'll have to be satisfied with seeing Hope in them.
Hopie's wardrobe for next winter is already off to a good start!
I haven't been doing much in the way of decorating around the house or crafting because I was readying myself for a scrapbook crop that I attended on Sunday. A sweet woman from work is part of a scrapbook club in her neighborhood & invited a few of us to crop with her. I try to be so organized before these things & plan out the arrangement for every page, placing all of the photos, papers & embellishments for each page in a large plastic envelope. The crop was a lot of fun but, despite my significant preparations, I only finished 3 pages! I think that we were having too much fun talking & eating :)
Having said that, decorating of a sort is going on in my house, without me actually participating (or, with minimal participation on my part). We have had really awful wallpaper in our upstairs hallway & stairs since we moved in 7 years ago, but couldn't do anything about it ourselves because of the way that the walls are around the stairs. We just don't have the proper equipment to reach the walls safely, without tumbling down the stairs! So, after 7 years, we have a contractor here this week, removing the wallpaper & painting the hall! The only participation on my part was assisting in the selection of the paint color (Cream -- Martha Stewart "Diploma") & of course, the payment! We are so excited for everything to look fresh & new.
