The start of a new School Year and much more……..

Img_4537 The new school year is so exciting! Love everything about it. I am also starting to decorate the house in Halloween… I know a little bit too soon. Just cant help it! I am so into owls this time around. I love this little owl on our vintage Bakers Rack. I also found this adorable Owl necklace at La Maison for 2 dollars! Img_4538 I am also adding so many things into my Halloween Shoppe. Like this Sign I made last year and decided to make it a Kit this yearImg_4528. So many new tags………Img_4547 Img_4550 Img_4548 What was the first clue that I love this Holiday? Wanted to let everyone know the Swap is now closed. So Happy just the right amount of Girls joined! I will show you what I send off to my Swap partner and what I receive..I Cannot Wait!.

Last week I told you I did the PS I LOVE  YOU FOUNDATION’S DAY AT THE BEACH . I wasn’t sure if Darianne really understood. Well she did something that touched me soo much and made me feel bad for doubting that she would understand. Here is what happened. She always finds money on the ground. I mean almost every time we are out together. Whether its a couple of pennies….or a 20 dollar bill. She found almost 3 dollars in change today. She usually takes her money home and puts it in her ATM machine. She has 51 dollars in there! It is all her money and she is saving up for a American Girl Doll.. (which by the way I refuse to buy) I took her to McDonald’s … I know what you are thinking (cant really stand the place either, but I do remember very long ago it being a 5 star restaurant to me too) anyways got a little side tracked like I always do. She took all the money she found and just went straight to this jar that holds money for some Charity   .. on the front of the jar there is a picture of some little girl in Guatemala with no shoes, disheveled clothes and hair… well you get the picture. She turns around and says to me "This little girl needs this money more than me Mom". OH my……….talk about tears in my eyes…. God I love her. It is never too early to start teaching our children about these things… I said it before I am so lucky . Hope everyone is ready for a fantastic School year!
