Happy Saturday

I have waitressed the Saturday morning shift for what seems like forever (there were a few small breaks here & there) With the same 3 lovely ladies that have become like family to me through out the last 12 years. It has never been a burden for me to go to work in the past. It is actually really fun, we laugh a lot . . .talk a lot . . . and eat a lot . . . and it has always been the busiest day of the week~ $o the money was great!
 But its been tough since Josh started kindergarten in September . . . and I no longer had any weekdays off with him. I just wanted to lay around and hang out in our pajamas, eat pancakes & do fun things on Saturdays  . . .but I couldn't :(  So in January I finally let them know that I wanted to be with Josh more. My boss is great & he always says, 'motherhood is more important then waitressing':)
My first offical Saturday off  was last week & I LOVED every single second of it.
We went to Chuck E. Cheese's!
This week it was on to Kangaroo U . . .
Not only did I get to sleep in  . . .& get to have an awesome day with Josh! I also stopped by a great Estate Sale & found tons of goodies.
The home was completely retro, it was in beautiful condition . . very clean & well kept.
 Each room had its own  brightly colored theme.
I wanted to take more pictures but I didn't want to freak the family out.
I also wanted to move in, but I thought that might freak them out as well?
Did I mention the woman that formally lived in this house was a seamstress!!!
She even color coordinated her buttons in vintage candy boxes . .
I LOVE THESE BUTTONS . . .I have no idea what I could possibly do with all of them but I LOVE THEM!
I also got a bunch of  fabric . . . do you like the orange velvet (again, don't have a clue what I am going to do with it?!?)
I love this black floral tin . . .
A bunch of lace doilies . . .
Vintage thread . . .
This cute orange cat
& white owl  . . .
A black clutch & a GE flip clock . . .

ALL for VERY cheap:)
Most of it will be going to the new Etsy shop that I have been working hard on.



But that will not be open for a few more weeks I will be sure to keep you posted!
Have a great weekend!

Oh Yes & I would like to say  HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY  to my sweet niece . . .

A perfect Saturday! When I go to estate sales like that I wish I could have met the organized seamstress who lived in that world. Great finds!
