Current Obsession: Antique Farm House

Thrift shopping and yard sale scouring are not my strong points- I wish they were. Truly. I see so many amazing treasures that people find. I simply don't have the gift or the patience but I love the look of beautiful, old,-time-worn pieces and I love a good deal.  Enter Antique Farm House.  I stumbled upon this site as I was perusing the blogosphere.  Oh mylanta!  It's pretty amazing. It is a deal-a-day (or deal every few days) site offering great, unique home decor at reasonable prices.  Many of their products have a sort of aged feeling to them and make me positively weak in the knees. There are several offerings at a time but they sell out fast and once they're gone, they're gone.  Here are some favorites I've spotted recently. 

 You can visit their site and drool peruse their products here.  You can also sign up for their  email list, so that you are always aware of their events.

The Simplest Preschool Snack

Hi friend! I hope Mother's Day was fabulous for you!

Today I'm sharing the simplest preschool snack- it was a hit with my daughter's class. This treat gets check marks for fun, simplicity and good nutrition.

Fruit Race Cars

  • Apple slices
  • Grape slices
  • Tooth picks
  • Whole grapes

I sliced the apples and the grapes ahead of time.   The kids put the two tooth picks in each apple slice and added grape slice wheels.  My daughter thought each of the cars needed an antenna, so we all added another toothpick on top and put our grape antenna-topper on it ;)

The Ballet Boutique ( for the ballet flat fanatic)

I love a great pair of heels as much as the next girl but for every day, flats are where its at for me.  Have you seen the Ballet Boutique from J. Crew?!  Talk about eye/shoe candy!  There are so many pretty options for ballet flats. They are all so lovely they belong in a shoe museum (Is there such thing? There should be)!  Check them out here.
