Howdy dears! We have had a great weekend over on this end--how about you? It was great to visit our grandparent's church and celebrate our grandfather's birthday following the service yesterday.
Finding another book shelf, at a thrift store of-course, to finish up our schoolroom's furnishings has occupied the rest of this weekend's free time. Hauling an oak cabinet up two flights of stairs is hard on the muscles, at least we are used to it and have the crew to assist!
We went thrifting (in search of furniture) on Thursday...Need I say more? This is the beginning of my love story for this sweater....
Shoes- thrifted $3 // Random hose // Slip- made by me // Skirt- thrifted forever ago // Undershirt- thrifted $1 //
White shirt and headband- gifted // Sweater vest- Christapher and Banks thrifted $3
I took one of the flakes of color out of the sweater and came up with my yellow shoes.Have I bored you with them yet? You would be surprised at how much a person can wear a pair of manilla colored shoes!
What a joy to wear what you love!
It is a time were our community celebrates their Dutch heritage with parades, plays, authentic costumes, and endless rows of tulips. While we will still be running the dining room, we are also going to be part of a wonderful show. The Dutch Heritage play. This is our first year in doing something like this. Most of the participants have been there since day one...we are anticipating their guidance as we begin our first practice tomorrow!
This event is a huge part of us! We love filling in details wherever we can! We are always buzzing around like bees this coming part of the year in preparation for it! It takes place in May. Let us know if you have a question!
Off to topple the world with house chores and finishing math.
Have you ever visited Holland during Tulip Time?
Have you ever been part of a play who's goal is to bring authentic-ness to life?
Would you wear my new sweater?
