Sunday Fun

Forgive the booty shot....but Miss K was having so much fun in the fort this Sunday!! :) We built it early, and it stayed up until we went to bed. The girls ate snacks, read books, and watched some TV.
Ali made a sign....She was having just as much fun in our little hide-a-way as Miss K was :)
I think this may become a ritual now :)

Do you make forts too?? ;)
Much Aloha,
Monika :)

The Monsters are coming!!!!

So this is what I've been up to lately....sewing Lil' Monsters!! :) Aren't they just the cutest??!!
These cuties are going to a super cool, hip boutique in Albuquerque, NM called Stilo Lifestyle Accessories.

I'm super excited for these little guys to find new homes. And if you live in the Albuquerque area, be sure to stop by Stilo and go check out all their great stuff!

Hope you had a fabulous Wednesday!!

Much Aloha,
Monika :)

Thrifty finds....that ends badly

Hi-Di-Ho everyone!!
I'm back!!
It's been a CRAZY couple weeks....but finally things are starting to settle down a little.
I hadn't been thrifting in a while, so I was REALLY excited when I saw these awesome finds!!
Federal Glass green dots bowl - $2.99
Vintage kitchen towel, and vintage fabric - .98 each
Buffalo China platter with blue edge - $1.99
Pyrex Verde Cinderella Bowl Set - about $20.00 total
I nearly squealed when I saw the whole set of Pyrex.....I own A LOT of Pyrex. But strangely enough, I don't have a complete set of anything. So this was the first :) I was taking these pictures, trying to get the right angle, I must have bumped the table.....

I heard them slide

I saw them start to fall

I heard them crash

I may had yelled...NOOOOO!!!!!!!
There may have been tears.......
The two smaller bowls, Down, broken, smashed......

So, I'm back to not having any complete sets :(

I'm just kinda a klutz sometimes...

Oh well....don't cry over broken Pyrex. (easier said then done...)

Much Aloha,
Monika :)

How you been??

Long Time No Talk!

NO....I haven't fallen off the earth or anything. Just A LOT has been going on.

Life....It really likes to throw you curve balls once in a while...

I promise...I will be back soon with something at least semi-interesting ;)

Much Aloha,
Monika :)
