Another Great Weekend

Over the weekend we went to Akron to visit my family. I did manage to squeeze in a few hours with my sister to make it to the local flea market, and I found lots of great things! Lots of vintage costume jewelry to add to my creations, take a look!
I also feel like I hit the fairy jackpot! I found these little ceramic fairies there. They are about 5" tall, and oh so pretty!
I was originally going to hang them in Zoey's room on her fireplace mantel, but then I thought they would look great altered up a bit and used on my creations. Here are a couple I added to Magic Wands!

I like how they turned out. I won't use them all on the Magic Wands, I do have some more ideas running around in my head for them...oh goodness...

But the reason we really went to Ohio was because my youngest brother pays high school soccer and they were having a Reverse Raffle fundraiser for the team. I adore all of my brothers and sisters more than anything {there are 6 of us} and I can't resist helping out his team when I can. He is the baby of us all, at 17. A junior in high school. I was a junior in high school when I started working at my first job, then he was born a year later. Now, he works at the same place for his first job. Ugh. I hate so much that he is growing up, but couldn't be more proud of the young man he has become. He loves my children so much and is Jake's hero {along side his dad, of course!} So, here is Kyle in action. He is such a great player, we all love to go to see him dominate the field! He had a game yesterday that we missed because we were driving home {and the weather was like winter} but we will make it there for more, since he is on like 3 different teams and it's just a few hours away. Jake LOVES to go to his games, and I will admit I do love to see him play, too!

So, hopefully you all had wonderful fun filled, family filled, great weekends as well! Back home & back to work! But that also means back to our regular sleep schedules, too!! YIPPEE!
