Really...a long one already! But definitely a wonderful one! First off, I really must share my SUPER ALL TIME FAVORITE Shabby store! Aside from Rachel Ashwell's fabulous boutique in Santa Monica, my favorite rustic shabby chic store to visit every time I visit my hometown of Southern California, I have to stop by this place! Bountiful Home. Seriously, my shabby heaven is inches away every time I visit this wonderful store in Venice. It's on Abbot Kennedy Blvd and this street has the most FABULOUS stores! All kinds and some pretty eye catching antique and interior design stores. It's a true feast of any shabby eyes to walk down this street. I have visited this store before and once you enter, the aroma of fresh flowers, lavender and vanilla paired with that amaazing aged aroma of vintage treasures from Europe and all over, I mean this is true heaven. It is like walking into the most relaxing place. And all of a sudden I don't even care about the huge numbers on the price tags, it's all about where this incredible lady found all her treasures and arranges them in the most shabbiest way! Just yummy!!!!! So make sure you go check out her scrapbook and take a peek at all these incredible treasures.
So one of the JOYS OF OUR LIVES has just started tee-ball. Well she has been practicing for a few months now, but the rain has delayed several practices. So today was her first game! Oh what proud parents we were standing there grinning and screaming in delight as she ran all those bases and did not get out once! Pretty great for her first game. Of course all these little players are just the most adorable little beings I have ever seen! They were all just soo cute and the idea of competition is just too far away for them to taste at this time! Thank heavens for that! This is all about fun and learning teamwork! So princess with her pink baseball bat grandpa had to get her, hit some fabulous hits, loved running the bases and did pretty great as shortstop! I thought she'd be chit chatting with her little friends all throughout the game but surprisingly she did splendidly well. That's my shabby girl!!! And to make this weekend even more delightfully fun, her other front top tooth decided that last night was the time for it to come out. So she did get a fun little visit from the shabby tooth fairy. But look at this charming little smile. So sweet!!!! I love it..and it reminds me of when she had no teeth when she was born! LOL Silly me..I always wanna remember those baby moments.
And while the little shabby tee-ball game is going on, our two little princes just loved the exploration in the fields nearby. They teamed up with the cuutest little girl who's brother played first base and they smelled and smelled all the wild flowers in the field. Just adorable! Matthew kept wanting to eat those floral delights but we kept telling him no and that a special lunch was awaiting for him back at the shabby house when the shabby tee-ball game was over. LOL The grass in these fields were taller than the boys. So we know they would have LOVED to go exploring and never return. Scary in fact! So our eyes were constantly watching them making sure they were nearby. Just some cute pics to share of their fabulous exploration!
And really how cuuute are the newest Gina kits? Just amazing and the newest one, Lucky Star, is just amazing!!!! You can get it from the latest issue of Simple Scrapbooks. Just yum!!!!!! I totally hope all you sweeties have one incredible rest of the weekend!!!!! :) Make it fun!
