This weekend…

I am planning on going to the Craft 08 Release Party in Austin this weekend.

That’s right kids Craft Magazine, Average Jane Crafter and Naughty Secretary Club are joining forces for a super crafty get together at Craft-o-Rama this weekend to officially celebrate the release of The Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry and Volume 8 of Craft Magazine.

Stop by Saturday Aug 30th between 3pm-6pm for snackies, big stacks of books and magazines to buy, door prizes galore and we will be making button covered rings (AKA from the Office Hanky Panky Bracelet set in the book).

I hope I can make it, even if it is to just go there take a few pics, pick up the book and meet the girls.  How fun!

Aprons…

What can I say, i now have a small collection. I NEVER used them before, but have been recently. Here is my small collection.

This one came from my mom! I love the colors!!

This one came from my mother-in-law, Candy. She made it for me, but I got to pick the fabrics. It is called a mamasan apron, it has long arms and ties in the back. Nice when cooking with foods that “jump” at you.

3 Vintage Aprons

These are the 3 I bought at the Citywide Garage Sale. They have very cute pockets.

Citywide Garage Sale

Today, Aunt Pat and I drove up to Austin to go to the Citywide Garage Sale. We found some great items.

There was a lady selling vintage table cloths and aprons.

Aunt Pat holding up a cute apron!

Aunt Pat was looking for items that would go in her ranch house. The house is from the late 1800s to early 1900s. She bought a book from the early 1900s. I took a couple of pictures of some of the items we liked.

I purchased an antique postcard because i thought the little boy looked just like Seth! What do you think?

too funny….

We also saw Elvis at the Citywide Garage Sale, look…hehe

Visiting the Grandparents..

Yesterday we went to New Braunfels to visit Seth’s Grandparents…

We had a great time visiting with them and listening to their stories.

While we were there, a huge storm arrived!

It was raining so hard that we got drenched walking to the car (about 7-8 feet away).

Then on our drive home, the rain was coming down in sheets! It was cool. We had to drive about 5-10 mph.
