Every day I wake up and it's Sunday

Me and Blaise took off for a bit yesterday and hit the thrift store. I had been itching to go thrifting for couple weeks. Score. I found a brand new Bialetti espresso stove top machine! I am enjoying java now before the boys really wake. They are with me downstairs as Joe sleeps still, but they are yet to fully rouse.
They are in that precious ten minutes of weekend morning just awake- a kinda place where I guess they are still groggy and processing dreams and thinking about last night. It is a quiet place.

We worked with some dye yesterday for a gift for a new baby in the neighborhood. We took some old white stained clothes and they are now reborn. I think recycling and hand me downing can be a great way to welcome new kiddos. I feel just as confident taking over a little basket of hand me downs as I would a gift from Target. I actually feel better.

****Clearance Sale over at old shop here. Please check it out. One teether left at sale price. I am moving everything to little alouette. Merci. :)

Get me delivered to yr email xo

That's because you breathe new life into them, so they're that much more special. I want to see before-and-afters next time!!

What a great idea! Looks like it was fun too. I really love that tub.

Here's to Sundays!

What a find Amy... I am so jealous! Not really, I am just happy for you... Is this goodbye to Starbucks??? :)

Yes - before & afters, please!

Oh, I have that tub, by the way! Except we fill it with ice and stuff it with beers during parties. Not as noble as what you use it for, I'm afraid! ;)

What a great thrifting find. I can't say enough about how I love my little stovetop espresso pot. And I totally agree about the hand me downs or homemade gifts. So much warmer than picking up something at Target, no matter how cute it is. Thanks for the post.

That's a great idea to dye old, stained clothing and make it new again. I should dig out all of Cordy's stained clothing and dye them for Mira.
