Spring Bits and Bobbles

Spring Break has come and gone and we are headed
straight into birthdays, baseball and more birthdays.
Here's how the last few weeks have gone...
Easter weekend was absolutely heaven and we took
a day to enjoy the beautiful cherry blossoms in full
bloom on University of Washington campus.

It was also my husband's birthday!

It was at the top of these stairs, outside the UW music building,
almost 20 years ago,
where we used to meet in between classes!
We started taking the kids to the UW campus when they were little
to visit and it's something that we all enjoy doing.
Who knows...they may just end up there too someday!
I managed to take a few detours throughout Spring Breaks
family activities to enjoy some junkin'.
My space has changed so much over my first month

And, what would Spring Break be without a
few furniture make-overs?
Here's a before shot of a vanity I scooped up.

For this piece I used Maison Blanche Le Craie - Antique Blue

I also used a little gold leaf on the detailed borders.

My sweet little niece, Raya,
came to stay with us while visiting from Pullman.
Isn't she a cutie?
My friend Susan took us to see her neighbor's farm.
It did not disappoint...
chickens, a new lamb and mama...
fun adventure!

And, of course, let's not forget going from
park to park to find just the right "bars".
This girl should be a gymnast!
A treat of key lime cookies and frosting were a hit too!

Another project in the mix...

I used Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint-

Some more "new" digs at Faded...


It was an awesome month for everyone at Faded
and so much new merchandise has come in.
Days are getting longer and there's nothin' like stroll through
 Historic Downtown Snohomish!
Come stop in!

Have a fantastic week!
