Barrett had his first experience with garage sales this weekend! I used to go with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law all the time in the summer. They would pick me up before 7am (this was very early for me before I became a mother), and we'd have a list of addresses to hit. It's so much fun to see what kind of treasures you can find! I hadn't been a single time yet this summer, since someone was keeping me busy at home in the mornings. Saturday morning, we were up before 7am, as is the routine around here with our own "little alarm clock." Justin was making coffee and I was playing on the floor with Barrett and kept hearing car doors slamming out front. I opened the front blinds to see cars lined up all along the street. I told Justin there must be a garage sale down the street. Barrett and I walked out in the front yard to take a peek and noticed Grandma Sandy's car parked across the street, so we waited in the front yard to see her.
After that we loaded up to hit some of the other sales around town. Barrett was awake for the first few, so we got him out with us. Then he fell asleep, so we took turns getting out at each sale. After we'd been to all the sales on our list, we got McDonald's breakfast...ahh, guilty pleasure--Cinnamon melts...and went to the park to eat. While at the park, we noticed the local Farmer's Market was going on, so we put Barrett in the stroller and browsed the homemade jams and candles and yummy produce. I love small town Saturday mornings!

I covered the plywood with a pink and brown floral paper, then used an empty white picture frame for the center where the clock face would be, and tied coordinating ribbons all around it. Inside the frame I used a bronze metallic finish paper. On the edges of the clock, I used a pink and brown polka dot ribbon to cover up the plywood.
There you have it! A custom clock in a couple of hours....
They auctioned the clocks off at the festival as part of a fundraiser. Mine went to a sweet little girl. I wonder if she still has it?

You still love bath time! We've taken the sling out of your tub now and you just sit up and play like a big boy while Daddy washes you up. I can already tell you're going to be wanting to stay in the tub and play all night when you get a bit older.
