Play Kitchens

There are two examples of awesome DIY play kitchens that I have found.  One I stumbled upon just recently at MommyWords that I think is just gorgeous and then the other one I found a while ago by someone who very cleverly transformed their old entertainment center.  Of course, you can always Google "DIY play kitchen" and find many versions including some very nice and affordable Ikea hacks.  Even though my son already has a kitchen he likes to play in, I would love to make the first one.



LLBean is finally coming to Rochester!  We heard rumors months upon months ago, but then nothing.  And then one day my darling husband stumbled upon this exciting little sign in the Eastview Mall.  He thoughtfully texted this picture to me and it just made my day!

Too bad it's not opening before this Christmas, but it will be in time for my birthday.  Hint... Hint...

How are these stores in other areas?  Are they as good or better?  Are there good deals to be found that you wouldn't find online?  I hope so!

Now I wish Ikea would come here....

An excellent use for old Scrabble pieces

Found this excellent use for old Scrabble tiles while poking at the links on Metamorphosis Monday at betweennapsontheporch.  I just love this simple use of old scrabble pieces.  So I set out to find me a set, however I quickly discovered that I'm in comptetition with crafters for those little scrabble tiles and they're a little over priced on eBay.  I posted to Facebook, but none of my friends coughed up a set for me.  I'll just have to keep looking.

It's been one of those days.

I have spilled coffee on myself twice and didn't manage to dodge numerous puddles walking through the rain to work.  It's been one of those days.
