Hot Hibbing Races!

We went racing this weekend up at Hibbing Raceway and man was it hot!! That descriptive only pertains to the weather though since Mike struggled with his car most of the weekend and ended up more frustrated with it than ever. Carter was a regular racin groupie and as usual just excited to be up in the stands watchin Daddy!! He was up late both nights and never got crabby although he did get pretty tuckered out during the Semi-Features on Saturday and fell asleep for an hour on my lap! He just loves being outside and especially loves the racetrack!

Stocking up at the Park Point Garage Sales

I went to the Park Point Garage Sales this weekend with my sister-in-law, Jess. I had never been interested in going before, but now that I look at junk a bit differently, I was excited to try it. We got down there when most of the vendors opened at 8am and didn't leave until almost 2. We had so much fun and found such great deals!! I found this really old metal fan for $1 and the vintage wood sled for $3, (how fun will that be to decorate this winter)!!! I also found an old wooden level that I plan to use as a picture shelf and bought Hostas for my new shade garden so I'll post pictures of that too when its done. We walked nearly the entire lenght of the point, and found cute things at many of the vendors, but I'd have to say that my favorite find was the "little brown chest", an old metal cooler that the lady said was from the 30's or 40's, and was only $2!!!!!

What to do on a rainy weekend . . . .

Fun projects for a not so fun weekend! It was cold and rainy so what is a girl to do . . . JUNK!! I took this chair from my "free from the dump" stash and gave it some new life. I loved the fabric so much I made a cushion for the bench in my entry way too!! A little color goes a long way!
