I went to Value Village today to see what I could find. I found two lengths of white fabric that I'm just dying to upholster something with. I also found about 4 metres of another cream and yellow fabric. I got some red and white gingham ribbon, some blue curling ribbon, and some blue tulle. I found a 1951 copy of The Swiss Family Robinson. This is the third copy I own (though I misplaced the first copy), and the oldest. It has sweet illustrations inside. My favourite two things that I found are a lace table runner, and a rosewood tray. I love the tray how it is, except that it has a cigarette burn in one corner. I don't know yet if I'm going to paint it . Sorry for the poor quality picture. I was having trouble with the lighting. When JK and I returned from shopping, I had a sweet message from my now-3-year-old niece thanking me for the gift I sent her. I could hear my sister prompting her in the background with what to say. So, now I can solve the mystery and show you what I made for her: It is a wooden letter M that I painted in black, purple, and white. Her bedroom is black and purple.
