Happy Monday all! I am pretty excited because I have all my little family home with me today since it’s a student holiday and Paul took leave to hang out with all of us! Anyway, I’ll get down to the business I am most excited about, the winner of the needle punch giveaway! I even…

Thrifting and Estate Sales

So on Saturdays Paul and I like to hit all the local estate sales, and today was killer!
