Crafting With Vintage Pencils

OK, one thing: I save e-v-e-r-y thing! If you saw my craft room right now, you'd want to call the Hoarders show.

But when I needed some nifty craft items for the girls to make a birthday card, I found these perfect *plast-o-led* pencil crayons that I'd saved from my mom's stash.

What more could you ask for? No melting, no crumbling. And check out the date they were made...1974. And purchased at Ben Franklin for the quaint little price of $1.99.

Now. What to do with my 13-plus years of magazines...

Did The Puyallup

Which one doesn't belong?

" We got to brush a pony. We can't bring one home, but we got to brush one."

Stopping to smell the flowers.

The giant slide!!!

Dragon coaster.

" Where's the fire? We'll put it out!"

And finally, the flower displays for Mama.

Slogger Weather

Nice and sloppy.

"Once upon a time there was a frog called Mr. Jeremy Fisher; he lived in a little damp house amongst the buttercups at the edge of a pond. The water was all slippy-sloppy in the larder and in the back passage. But Mr. Jeremy liked getting his feet wet; nobody ever scolded him, and he never caught a cold! He was quite pleased when he looked out and saw large drops of rain, splashing in the pond--"

Back to Ballet

Miss Kendall returns for a fourth year! Seasoned veteran.

And Miss Presley is just beginning her dancing career because she's "big enough" this year.

Looking forward to another year of graceful dancing!
Enjoying a tasty snack on the long drive home.

Practicing an arabesque in her new blue leotard (which we had to purchase on the way to class). No more pink tutus for this ballerina!

Daddy is always so thoughtful...he surprised us with beautiful flowers for the first day of ballet classes!

Pea's bouquet of *red* gladioli is bigger than she is!
