How to Buy a Pez Dispenser

A couple weeks ago before the Adirondack air became crisp and cool we spent the day walking through a giant Garage Sale in the neighboring town. 

It is miles and miles of vintage and antique happiness. 

My husband loves it for the food...sausage, onions and peppers to be exact.

My oldest likes it for the hunt of a pile of Pokemon cards real cheap.

And my youngest, well, he never really knows what he wants until he finds it.

We are really shaking things up around here. Not only do we have new co-hosts and guest hosts, but we are also posting the links to your amazing projects in random order. It is kind of like going to never know where your dice will land! Sounds fun to me.

Enjoy the inspiration! Take it away, Leslie...

Twirl and Take A Bow...with New Co-hosts!

Welcome again to another edition of our linky party. We have a couple new co-hosts.  They are amazing! I am so excited that they are joining us!

Enjoy the inspiration!


My family is just returning from Fall Break! Do you guys have fall break in your school system like we do?

My family and I had a great time. I actually had to go to an Early Childhood Conference for 3 days and then we did a little traveling.We ended up going to Kentucky and stopped by Keeneland and the Woodford Reserve Bourbon distillery. Yes, we took the kids to the race tracks and a bourbon distillery for fall break. (who's shaking their heads?)

Surprisingly, both were very interesting and educational. We had a lot of fun learning about the culture of both the races and the bourbon and seeing the excitement and the passion people have for both.

Before we left for Fall Break we had our first ever family photos taken! Seriously, stop shaking your head! We've had plenty of non-professional family photos done but this is our first professional one. Take a look!

Twirl and Take a Bow Linky Party

My time as a Guest Host here at the Twirl & Take a Bow party is nearing the end, but before I depart, I have the honor & pleasure of selecting favorites from last week's party, and what a fun "job" it is! So many very creative people hang out at this party each week, so it was tough to choose.
As for things new over in these parts...

“Hey You Guys”… A Halloween Mantel

Who doesn't love jewels?

Whether it be jewels to wear on your neck and ears or jewels to hide in your pocket, from the Fratelli’s, in order to save your house
…jewels are amazing.

Twirl and Take a Bow...Hanging on to Summer

I know what you are's Fall...let's get on with pumpkins and beautiful colored leaves and mulled cider.

But in the Adirondacks it has been 80 degrees and sunny for the last few days, so I am holding tight to summer.

We even went swimming in the lake this weekend in between soccer games and emailing Vern Yip. The water was 64 degrees, but it didn't stop the kids...or my husband for that matter.

So in the spirit of wanting summer to last just a little bit longer my features all reminded me of my favorite foot loose and fancy free season.

Enjoy the inspiration!

The Time I Invited Vern Yip to Dinner {and a Double Lamp Makeover}

Just like every Saturday morning, I got up, made my oatmeal with brown sugar and peanut butter toast then proceeded to read all of my email and check Facebook.

Unlike every Saturday morning, I saw that Vern Yip was in my area at a furniture store doing a meet and greet. 

I have loved Vern since Trading Spaces....remember that show? 

However, when I looked at the time of his appearance it was smack dab in the middle of my son's soccer game.
