kids in the river

The kids are playing in the river. We hung out all day and enjoyed this shallow part of the river.

80's party

Wow!! A blast aback to the past!!! Went to an eighties party last night and it was crazy!!! Fun to find all my old clothes: letter jacket, gymnastic t-shirt and vans. I even cut myself some little bangs for the occasion. My kids were horrified!!!

Have you ever tried to take a picture of a mirror??? Well it is harder than I thought it would be and I didn't even take into consideration the reflection!!! Anyway, I had this old mirror from the previous owners and decided to reuse/ recycle it-- I kind of liked it's old funky look. But when I put it up, it looked even older and funkier than I remembered.... so I ordered some milagros (50 to be exact) and glued them all over the mirror's edges. I kind of liked the effect--- made it look funky and different ( different- that's what I am always going for!) So that's my mirror for now!!!

socks and more socks

Finally.... I have finished these socks that kept haunting me!!! The pinkish ones are my koolaid dyed socks done in the Jaywalker pattern---a fun new project to try. The purple ones are from my Rockin Sock Club!!! I loved the color, but was frustrated by the pattern. Probably mostly because I was travelling and this was not an easy pattern to travel with as I flipped back and forth between the pages of the pattern. But the end product I love. They look cool and feel really nice!
