Disneyland Silhouette Studio Souvenir

I'm so excited to share the best Disneyland souvenir purchase I've ever made - hands down!
I decided to take the time,(since we were at Disneyland for more than one day)to have silhouette's made of the girls.

I love how they turned out!
For $9, you get two mirror imaged silhouettes, and for about $10 more, you can get a frame.

I thought the whole process would take a bit of time, so we went to the studio soon after they opened. Much to my surprise, it took the artist about 1 minute to cut each individual silhouette - totally unbelievable!!

This lady cut each silhouette freehand - no projector, cutting machine, anything! Both girls sat sideways in a chair in front of her. She took one look, began cutting and chatting, and voila', she was done.
If you've never taken the time to get a silhouette done at Disneyland, you just might want to.
It is SO worth it!

Pink Peonies

One of my most favorite flowers.

So happy to find these blooming in our yard, when we came home from Disneyland!

Farm Chicks 2011

Saturday morning at 6:45am, we were on the road to Spokane headed to Farm Chicks!
By 11:15am, we were in the parking lot of the fairgrounds ready for some shopping.

My parents met us at the gate with our tickets. Even though the line was much shorter this year due to ticket pre-sales, it was still so nice we didn't have to wait at all.

Last year, I was so overwhelmed as soon as I stepped foot into the show. It is so hard to explain the feeling... I guess it's just something you have to experience yourself.
This year was much better. Arriving a little later than the BIG rush made it so much less stressful. We still felt like we were caught up in the frenzy, and that makes it so FUN!

The whole experience is so crazy, really. I told myself I'd take a lot of pictures to share, but I got so caught up in the moment, I completely forgot. I did pull out my camera to get a pic of this Brach's candy shelf. I really, really, loved it!

Here is a picture collage and list of what came home with me:
old wooden ironing board, milkshake glasses, two funeral baskets, 1956 All laundry soap bucket, a handful of old buttons, beaded purse, and two vintage tablecloths.

Old funeral baskets are by far, one of my most favorite things to collect.
The two I bought, fit in perfectly with some others I have on my mantel.

Check out other Farm Chick experiences here.
And, if you haven't been yourself, you must next year!

Farm Chicks Time - Woot! Woot!

In a few short hours, we'll be shopping at Farm Chicks!
This year, we are taking the girls, and meeting my parents in Spokane.
I'm so happy that my Mom and Dad were able to purchase our entry tickets.
Yay! That means, no waiting in that super long line for us!
Can't wait to see all the fabulousness that is Farm Chicks.
I made the apron for Sydney to wear while shopping at the show. She is so excited to dress-up for shopping.

Hope you all have a terrific weekend. It's supposed to hit close to 80° the next couple days, here in Washington. We haven't had temperatures that warm since Sept. of last year.
We are so due!
