Helpful Hint: When you want to go antiquing, call it Treasure Hunting instead! (***warning*** I would not recommend this type of outing with more than one child!!!). When Micah's soccer game was canceled on Saturday I asked him if he wanted to go Treasure Hunting to which he replied "Can I wear something nice?" I love when he says that because it means:
1. He will come up with something creative to wear which will usually make me smile. Thankfully, he is getting to the point where he will listen to a little bit of gentle styling advice from his mother, though I only give it when absolutely necessary.
2. There will be no -getting dressed- struggles. In his words, he will "be initiative".
Here are Micah's treasures:
I think the above will go nicely (though needs to be painted) with this.
Vintage wrapping paper! Hmmm, I wonder if there is a vintage wrapping paper Flickr Group? (**Update - of course there is a Flickr Group!)
Tea towel and apron!
