She's here!! My lovely mama is here and we are having so much fun!! That's her above in the art studio/guest room!
We spent the weekend visiting antique malls and discount stores! The photo above is us in front of one of our favorite booths at the antique mall.
This gorgeous banner was made by my mama and she gave it to me for a gift! If I were her, I don't know if I could've given it away! Isn't it the sweetest, prettiest banner?! She even added my little guys to it! On top of the "F" is my baby boy and on the "Y" in the little flower is my big boy! I just adore it!! She also gave me a big box full of collage supplies- glitters and vintage photos and ephemera! I'm such a lucky girl! At the antique mall she found some wonderful vintage ribbons and vintage hats covered in flowers and lots of other goodies. We spent the evening ripping the flowers from the hats (which seemed kind of awful, but we couldn't help it!) to use in our collage art! We are just having the best time ever! You should go check out my flickr account- lots of new pretty photos because my mom brought her camera with her! Yay!

Yay!!! My sweet Mama is coming to visit today!! She will be arriving tonight, so I will be spending the day cleaning my messy house. My craftroom (which looks like a tonado hit a scrapbook store) is also the guestroom, so I'm going to be a busy, busy girl today. I'm so exited that she is coming- I miss her so much. She lives in California and I'm in Texas, so we don't get to see each other very often. She and I love all the same things, so we have so much fun together. We love hunting for antiques (especially together!!) and creating art and we love all things pretty and shabby chic and vintage!! The piece above is a collage I made and the little girl is my sweet mama when she was about 3 years old. Isn't she the cutest thing ever? Well, I'd better stop blabbing and start cleaning!

For me a good day consists of lots of time playing with my kids, quiet time with sweet husband, and ends with me covered in glitter and paint. This was one of those days- I hope you are having a lovely day, too!!
