3 Speckled Hens

I am finally getting to post about one of my favorite antique fairs; Three Speckled Hens. It is an outdoor fair with antiques and old stuff that happens twice a year. The prices are decent. They aren't garage sale price but definitely better then what you would find in an antique store. Usually I drag Kevin along with me but this time Kevin watched the kids while my friend Amanda and I were in heaven looking at all the beautiful old things.

Here is Amanda modeling the new hat I got for Abbey's future dress up box. Isn't so fun!
I also got a great deal on an old trunk. You can see a corner of it by Amanda's hand in the picture below. But when I got it home it doubled in size. Definitely didn't realize how big it was. woops. There was great vintage Christmas stuff. I just loved the holiday feel.

So many fun vintage things! Do you want to come with me in May!

Banana or Blueberry Crumb Muffins

I have made these muffins twice and everyone in the house is in love with them. The real test is Abigail, she ate 3 in one day.
She must think they are junk food to eat them like that but I am here to tell you they are good for you. Especially if you use sucanat instead of brown sugar and use apple sauce instead of oil. One thing I did was use bananas and blueberries and I didn't even bother making the topping but I'm sure that makes them extra yummy.

Check out the recipe over at Passionate H0memaking. Enjoy!!

City to Sea

Today Kevin ran the City to Sea Half Marathon with his sister Denise. The race starts at downtown San Luis and ends at the Dinosaur Park in Shell Beach. This is the pre-race picture which of course they are being all goofy. These two are crazy when they are together, can you tell?
While Kevin and Denise where hitting the pavement Abbey painted a sign to congratulate her daddy and Aunt. This girl loves making in her words, "paint hands".
Post-race picture: don't they look good for running 13.1 miles.

My Attempt at Sewing

I just love the clothes at the baby boutiques that have the hand made touches but they are so expensive. So I took a couple of Abbey's solid color shirts and then adding something fun. I love how the pear turned out. And the polka dot star... Abbey literally lived in this shirt for 3 days, day and night. It was getting a little nasty but man did she make her mama feel good.
Now she is requesting an elephant shirt so that is my next project.
