Not a happy blogger!!

I wrote out this really nice, long post. Clicked "Save as Draft"....then Blogger tells me it's undergoing a brief maintanence session and will be back up in a few minutes. Blogger ate my post!!! Arrgghh!

So, now you get the abbreviated version. :)

Had to go to the Goodwill bookstore yesterday (for reasons you'd know if Blogger hadn't eaten my post!). DS got a book and I happened to pick up a few for myself. Not my usual, current reading material, but there are reasons for buying these.

The Snowman - My SILs favorite story.
Pupper Party - Look familiar Mom? I had this when I was a kid and when I saw it, I just had to have it. Yes, I am a bit nostalgic!
Where The Wild Things Are - Another one from my childhood. This was a favorite of mine and I'm looking forward to reading it to DS.

And some crafting.

DS's teacher commented earlier in the week that she didn't have anything green to wear to school today. So, I borrowed this idea from Sarah (not the shrinky dinks, the pillow) and made this. It's a simple pieced Shamrock appliqued onto a cotton tee shirt. His teacher was thrilled with it! Rave reviews from several teachers and parents.

Oh, and I almost forgot the best thrifted book.

I have no idea what any of it says, but it's a beautiful book. It looks to be a word/picture dictionary. The photos are great! Not sure what I'll do with it, but I couldn't pass it up.

I love Where The Wild Things Are....I read it as a child, oldest ds had it, and now my youngest son has a copy. :)

Great shirt! You're so creative!

I love Where the Wild Things Are, too! I need a copy now. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled. :) Love the shirt!
