My Late Mother’s Day Present & Vintage Finds

Miss Gabi finished my Mother’s Day present last weekend and I am now the proud recipient of a “Gabi Original” work of art!

How cute is this?

And I LOVE that she painted the “Always in My” on there too…

A sweet little message from my not so little girl.

She’s almost done with 6th grade and just received a “Presidential Excellence Award”.

{proud sigh}

7th grader.

My baby is going to be a 7th grader!

I guess it always catches us by surprise…this kid growing up thing.

You go along in your day to day living…waking them up for school (BRUSH YOUR TEETH!), sending them to bed (DID YOU BRUSH YOUR TEETH?) and everything in between…

And WHAM.

They grow up when we aren’t looking.

{sigh}

Make some memories…

Cherish every moment…

Even the (BRUSH YOUR TEETH!) ones.

Now with those ultra wise words being said…

Take a look at the rest of the vignette I put her painting with:

A fun little mudroom vignette.

I just have to take a moment to show you a few of my favorite finds:

Fantastic vintage "Fresh 7Up" crate...Love the Campbell's Soap container and yes..."If you write in the Dust, please don't date it"

Fantastic vintage “Fresh 7Up” crate…Love the Campbell’s Soap container and yes…”If you write in the Dust, please don’t date it”

And this WONDERFUL little “lunch bucket(?)”:

Check it out!  It even says "Fresh-O-Lator" on it!

Check it out! It even says “Fresh-O-Lator” on it!

I had to have it, I mean really!?!  “Fresh-O-Lator”?  Who can resist!  Surely, not me!

However, my favorite piece of this vignette will be Gabi’s present:

Always in my Heart

Always in my Heart

I hope to go and do a little “junking” tomorrow…I’ll let you know what I find!

In the meantime…

Have a great day!
