While in Myrtle Beach, I found a familiar pair of eyes staring at me from the shelves of The Mole Hole, a neat shop in Barefoot Landing. Turns out, my Ms. Quackers (as named by a coworker) is a Dcuk creation that made it to Goodwill after loosing a bit of its foot.
Fancy! And at $1.00, I was able to burn it (and give it some cute shoes) without worrying about the investment.
First weekend in town in awhile, and we decided to clean out a closet that turned out to be a time capsule! Looked unassuming enough, but layers deep we found laptops from law school over ten years ago, along with other things we shoved in when the house only had two people. It seemed much bigger back in the day.
I also examined the uniform polos in my oldest's closet, and we had enough good ones to last the week. Just barely- hope the shelves aren't too bare after the school sales! (My oldest got his back-to-school haircut on Sunday- we squeezed every hour out of summer break!)
I hated to throw away the polos that had weathered kindergarten badly. It's pretty wild how much clothing goes into the trash! An average 81 pounds per person - c'mon, at least make some dusting cloths!
With one of my new favorite Pinterest projects, they became bags to carry the rest of the clothing to Restoring Hope this weekend. It's a neat place.
I love these fabric bags! The original poster used them as grocery bags, and I found that they were useful as laundry bags on our vacation. One hung on the doorknob and kept our clothes from piling up, then it was tossed into the wash with the rest of the clothes.
We're all trying to find the school-day rhythm this week, and I bought some art supplies over the weekend that I think ended up in the Bermuda Triangle closet. But I'm excited about Halloween coming up, and I've projects going with an ambitious theme- The Haunted Mansion, inspired by some ceramic doll heads I happened upon at SmArt.
Yes, you're right, that's Mary Todd Lincoln in the back.
