Added Elliot's Pic in with the collage of "Greats"

Isn't this gorgeous! Well if you like old Silos I guess

This past week has been busy but I also got a little fun time in! I was asked to complete a vintage themed scrapbook for Angelina of Angelina's Cards well her son Elliot actually! She wanted a little something special for her darling son since he made his All star team! I went right to work and created a book for him with a chipboard cover which I painted and distressed to match his team color and to resemble the worn look of a worn catchers mitt. Inside I added Elliot's pictures and a few vintage goodies, Angelina emailed me some great finds too. I hope you enjoy and get some inspiration for your next project! I love doing custom work like this and I am currently working on a vintage themed military scrapbook I will share that with you sweets as soon as I finish which needs to be yesterday!

Ok this weekend was also my 10 year high school reunion!( thats why you are listening to a few tunes from 98') I can't believe it snuck up on me. I wasn't going to attend due to my schedule but the last minute I loaded up the kids and back to my hometown we went. I dropped the kids off with their Mimi ( my hubby's mother) she was thrilled to see them since we live away and then off to the reunion. I was so excited to see some of my old friends we never get to hang out with jobs, kids and just life I know you know how that is. It was odd not having the kids and actually getting to finish a sentence and not taking anyone to the potty!

A few of my high school BF's were there and catching up with them was just the boost I needed to get through the coming weeks with last minute preparations for Market. It has been all work no play for sometime now. We of course laughed about way back when stories including some bad hair and outfit choices, danced a little, shared photos of the kiddos and chatted the night away! My BFF Jess just got engaged so that was an exciting topic. She has ask for some planning help and I am looking forward to that. She loves vintage and wants to add a little whimsy instead of the usual wedding stuff. I am sooo looking forward to this! I can really sink my teeth into that job!

Last but not least I am sharing a photo of a gorgeous night last week, my view from our porch is that of an old farm and the silo was just gorgeous surrounded in the pink skies! My son loves the silo and insist on asking us to build one. You see we grew a small garden this year but to him it's our farm and evidently a farm just cannot be without a silo? He has also insisted on chickens for fresh eggs, this coming from the boy who checks out almost every egg carton at the grocery for baby chicks. I am trying to explain the process but he just tells me one day he will find a chick in the carton!

Looks like you had fun at your reunion! Glad you were able to get some fun in before Market. Can't wait to hear about that experience!

Patricia said...

I just love old silos and it breaks my heart that more and more of them have fallen into disrepair and are being torn down. So much history disappearing.
Your scrap book is adorable. Love the baseball mitt look.

Looks like a good time was had by all at the reunion. It's been 30 years for me this year. Hard to believe but it feels like yesterday. The baseball scrapbook is a wonderful keepsake for Elliot, it awesome. Love your view from the porch.
