This weekend started off with a real bang for our family. My husband came home a bit early Friday evening because we were all going to an appointment. Not ten minutes after he got home he calmly came in and told my that Josh, my 9 year old, had fallen on a dead tree and needed stitches. No big deal I thought. Been there, done that many times with him. He is a tad accident prone, much more so than his 12 year old brother. Well, upon observation of the injury to his chest, I proceeded to basically freak out and start talking loudly about plastic surgery. This, of course, freaked Josh out who had been totally calm and not even crying. The cut wasn't too big but it was very deep and in a very delicate place. Being that I wasn't helping the situation, we decided it would be best for me to stay home with Zach and he would take Josh to the doctor. He ended up in the children's ER for most of the night getting stitches from a plastic surgeon. All in all, it wasn't that bad and most likely not too much scarring. He was a total trooper, no tears, loved the ride on the stretcher, didn't mind the stitching. He just minded the first needle prick. So ... here he is with a little mohawk today and refusing to smile for the camara.
The next photos are a follow up to my blog post from last week's Show and Tell.
The blue vintage bike I found on the side of the road turned white (primer) and then watermelon pink. It needs a basket on the front and one on the back for flowers to really finish it off. Now I just have to find the baskets!
And finally, some of the things I ordered at the New York Gift Show have started arriving. I just love when UPS pulls into my driveway ... it's so much fun to get packages. Below are a few metal shabby signs I ordered (that I will list on my site today). They are very pretty in soft pastel colors with just the perfect amount of distress. I tried a new feature on my photo editor. What do you think of the soft edges on the pictures?? Good or too much??? I would love your opinion.
