Something old, into Something new!

I was feeling crafty the other day, so i made the best of it.
I have had these coasters for a while, where you can put your own pictures in them. Well i finally got tired of them being empty, so i grabbed a couple of old Reminisce magazines, and started flipping though them.
They have the neatest ads and such.  I picked through the odd little pictures, found my favorites, and put them to use:

This one is my favorite! It matches my living room perfectly!

Hee hee its a tv.

While i was flipping through the magazines i also found these amazing old Halloween postcards.
Perfect for decoration, so with the help of:

Awesome old magazines,

Old playing cards,


And good ol' Mod podge!

I was able to create these beauties:

Which hang beautifully in my dinning room window:


Photo drop!

This past Sunday we went to a pumpkin patch and had lots of festive fun. Finding pumpkins in the pumpkin hunt, painting them afterwards, face painting, etc.  So here is a simple blog with lots of pictures...Cue photo drop!

Is this not the most mischievous picture??

waiting for the hay ride to start

Chaotic family picture! I love how Kayla and Noah are looking at each other. 

Noah found his two pumpkins!

But he was much more interested in finding sticks.

So excited to find them!

Stomping on a DECAYED PUMPKIN!! Yes, Kayla used "Decay".

I adore her freckles.

Painting pumpkins!

Kayla asked if she could paint her own face; 

Her response to getting some one her nose.

Kayla's Flower or pumpkin, depending on when you ask her.

My Thrifty Thursday!

Oh wow, i am on a thrift store kick! Kerrppppowww!!! The fever set in on Wednesday when i went into goodwill while Kayla(my 5yr old girly) was in ballet class. It has been a while since i've gotten to go to any thrift stores but i was still able to go in full swing. Found a couple of neat goodies, and that was all i needed for it to set completely in. Oh and apparently my go to buy number is six, six dollars?? Oh thats nothing!! Until you get ten six dollar items...(Don't worry that didn't happen....This time. *cue mischievous grin* end cue)...So anyways this is what i got from goodwill:

(They match my house perfectly!!)
One of the little pumpkin guys are missing, The cuter one, in my opinion, is in hospital-crafting-wing. My son was playing with him and dropped it, but its an easy fix. No harm done.

I also had gotten a pair of bright blue sheer tights, but when putting them on they instantly begun having runs...Can't really complain...59 cents is all they were...And all they were worth apparently. Gerrrschnapple (my new favorite distress word), but oh well i can use the fancy sheer for a crafting project.

The next day I went with two of my sisters into Austin, so these were needed:

(It was a twitchy car-ride)
We went to Target first, the real reason we went into Austin, And found things for my sons Halloween costume *cue spider-fingers* end cue.
Then...Dun Dun DUUUUN! We went to Savers.
I found. (It actually was one of my sisters). The most absolutely adorable perfect pair of shoes.
I love them.
Has anyone seen the movie "Penelope"??
Well if you have you have seen my longed for Fall/Winter wardrobe:

Adorable right?! Well with these shoes i feel i can achieve this look flawlessly. In fact I'm vibe'ing (Is that a real word??) her right now:

And there they are...I love them...Every bit. To the tinniest detail, the scalped edges, the little floral pattern,  the stitching around the toe. And to make me love them even more so, they were wait for it....Six dollars!! (giddy girl dance!) 
Made my day.

I also got this awesome print that goes oh so well in my living room:

(also six dollars!)

Isn't its retro'ness (that one is not a real word.) amazing?!

We also went to a store called "Bead it". It is a wonderful store for any craft lover...It's also a dangerous store for any craft lover...
I restrained this time, i got a simple wooden pendent in which i intend to paint on. 
Here are a few shots from our adventure:

We're sisters...Can you tell??

Even without our kids with us, We're still the annoying ones in Target.

Oh i also drew an ugly rabbit in heat:

Although my sisters think he's ugly, I actual am quite fond of him...
