With more snow forecasted for today, this sweet flower arrangement was a nice reminder that Spring will be coming soon! Isn’t it so bright and cheerful?

Sunday Snapshot — All Dressed Up (Sort of)

Almost a year ago, I had found these beautiful holiday dresses for both of the girls at our local thrift store.

Teaching Kids the Art of Thrift Shopping

Thrift Store Finds — Woo Hoo!

I have been on the look-out for next year’s holiday dresses for the girls, and at the thrift store today I found these gorgeous dresses (in next year’s sizes)!  Aren’t they beautiful? Emily’s cost just $4.99!  Clara’s was $3.99, but they had a sale for 50% off all blue tagged merchandize, making this cute dress […]
