Here is a beautiful diy for a notepad from the equally beautiful blog, Scissor Variations. I have a sick love for lists and the paper on which to make lists. This will just deepen my sick love.

Barn Sales and Boutiques

Last week, after an amazing family reunion in Island Park, ID, we followed one of the families back to Great Falls, MT and spent a couple days enjoying beautiful Montana country. My sis-in-law and I realized we shared an interest in having a boutique/market. You know, the kind in your back yard or barn where you throw up a couple of tents and sell hand-made treasures? So, we decided that we are going to do one next fall. I've been checking out some different sales around the country to get an idea of what works and what sells. Here are some I've found....

The Vintage Barn

Heart and Home Boutique

Bijou Market

Fallbrook Barn Sales

We've got a lot of work to do and many things to make. Stay tuned for upcoming information on our amazing boutique. It's going to be wonderful!!!!

Craft Fair

Don't you just love this awesome mirror?! I love it when you can take an everyday item and make something this amazing! I'm going to find some great colored spoons and make this very soon.
Find it here

Isn't this so cute and clever? I know it would get a lot of use in my home.
Find it here

I've always thought there should be a better use for doilies than just dust collectors. Well, here it is...

You can find similar clocks here

Another mirror (I love mirrors)...I saw this one at Urban Outfitters and I've been stockpiling magazines to make this. I think it's about time to get it done.

That's my sis in the mirror:) She needs to get busy and get her own blog!

Yellowstone Nat'l. Park

We are going to a family reunion in about a week and we'll spend some time in Yellowstone Nat'l. Park. The last time I was there I was much younger and riding in the backwards seat of a station wagon. I'm really excited for my children to see "Old Faithful" and truly enjoy nature at its best. I've been doing some research to make sure we get the full Yellowstone experience, but if you've been recently and have any good suggestions, let me know.

Loving this vintage paperdoll image. You can find it here. I miss paperdolls.

I love this white menagerie.

I would look awesome in this...

These are so sweet. Find them here

This skirt needs to be mine! I really need to improve my sewing skills. I know this would not be difficult to copy. That Kate, she's amazing.

This is where my evenings need to be spent...

These are so yummy!!! I found them at Cracker Barrel.
