If you are looking for some amazing finds I have just the place you have got to go. The Nest on Ninth in Topeka. The milkman and I had to run to Kansas City last week and we stopped off to see my friend Gale's store. It is adorable!!

Welcome to Vintage Friday!
What is Vintage Friday? It is where I will list some vintage items that I want to sell.
Here is how it works: If you see an item or items that you want simply leave me a comment with the # of the item (s) you want to purchase and your e-mail (so I can send you a payment request) and zip code (so I will know how much to charge for shipping it to you).
The first person to leave me their e-mail with their item # and zip wins!! Your paid item(s) will be mailed out Monday. I will also combine items to make shipping cheaper for you.
#1. Miniature Wooden Train and 3 Metal cars. As you you can see they are tiny. That is a quarter to kind of help you see what their size is. So cute! $10 + shipping.

One of the great things about small town living is fun festivals. Oh I know that big cities have festivals as well but in small towns it is not only a day of festivities but also a day to visit and catch up with friends. My friend Deane asked me to share a booth with her for the day and I thought why not!
It was a great day! So fun to spend the day hanging out, visiting and making a little bit of money. I mean really isn't that what small town living is all about?

What is a bunch of moms to do when their kiddos start their first day of school? Celebrate of course!! My friend Deane and I hosted a great bunch of moms for a mom's coffee after the kids were dropped off.
Of course it isn't a real party until something gets spilled! Ha! We just added it another memory of the day.

Last week was a kick of to another school year. It is not only a new school year but also a new school for us. One thing that is not new is the tradition we started way back when, the tradition of cinnamon rolls on the first day for breakfast.This is the only picture the teenagers would let me take of them. Ky wasn't so happy about being up this early.
On the first day I had her stand in front of school and took her picture. As I snapped her picture I realized that is how fast the first 5 years have gone by, in a snap. I have never cried when I have dropped a kiddo off at kindergarten in fact the milkman and I usually do a little high five but this one...this one was hard. I will admit I cried all the way home. Pitiful! School has been in session now for almost a week and I will tell you the kiddos are LOVING it! We are so excited for this year and are so grateful to everyone that has made us feel so welcomed.
