The sounds of silence

13 Jul

Since my husband is teaching a class for summer session this year, we tried to make the most of the time he had off. Just like in my last post, I’ll show you in pictures what we’ve been up to:


We went to Ikea on the fourth. I picked up these two one of a kind kids, and a cart I’ve been wanting for a while. Here’s a picture of the cart –


I put all my embroidery stuff on the cart. I love it!! And unlike most things from ikea, it was easy to put together! And my kids had a blast at Ikea! They loved checking everything out and sitting/laying down on all the furniture! They didn’t understand the fake rooms but loved it! I can’t wait to take them back.

And speaking of embroidery, I’m working on a cross stitch for a friend. Here’s a peek:


It is supposed to take 14 hours according to the pattern – it’s been about 20 hours of work and I’m nowhere near done! I really hope my friends like it.

We hit up a bunch of tag, estate and church rummage sales. We found some cute stuff, here are some pictures of what we found:

We didn’t buy the organ. It was a working Wurlitzer, and it was the third one I’d seen in as many days. If you want a Wurlitzer come to Scranton.



How’s your summer been?
