Weekend Update

This is actually one of my finds from last weekend - I love the floral design on this vintage pyrex. I already have a little bowl in this same pattern. I thought the price on this butter dish said $2.00 but imagine my surprise when I realized it said $.20!! (I was going to get it even if it was $2.00) .
And I have been craftly lately..whipping up some beautiful little gifties for Moki's surprise baby shower on Thursday night. I crocheted her a little pair of booties and a hat - the flower can be attached if the baby is a girl:) I love the history of this yarn...Moki's sister gave it to me, via Moki's mom, and probably via Moki's grandma:):)


And I made her a little paperbag baby album....
Inside is a layout for each month of baby's first year. She can add pictures, or just stories and journaling and keepsakes.
Miss S pulled out her loose tooth while I was out at Moki's shower. I woke her up when I got home so we could put it under her pillow together. She had said she hoped that the tooth fairy brought her a dollar so she was so excited to see a crisp new bill under her pillow in the morning. The one next to it is loose now too!

And I have FINALLY opened up my etsy shop....I registered for it several months ago but never got around to listing stuff. For now I'm going to be listing a bunch of my vintage patterns and other vintage finds. I hope to eventually add some items that I've made.
I've love it if you visited me at www.mylove.etsy.com

Just added you as an Etsy Favourite.

I love the paper bag baby book. My friend is pregnant with her first baby, a girl. I need to make her one of these.

Love the missing tooth! No loose teeth for my guy yet- he's in first grade too. I imagine it will happen soon.

Congrats on the shop!

I have this butter dish too! Exactly. Twinsies!

Though mine cost me a small fortune. $1.50 I think.

I'm with Mel, my mom has that set, too! And she's used it every day for 33 years!
