the day before....

Today is the day before a huge week here. Tomorrow Lowell turns 7 years old!! Hope arrives in the afternoon and will be staying with us until Sunday. We have plans to go to Junk Bonanza, Creative Connection and Scrapfest. See links to all these events on my sidebar buttons. Then my sister and my nephew arrive on Thursday for a week and my birthday is next Monday. Should be a fun filled week! Keeping up with my letter a day challenge. Friday was "g" day and it was a grey one here. I went to a fancy estate sale along Lake Minnetonka and found these wonderful bright chairs that offset the grey skies beautifully.
Saturday I was on the hunt for "h" and was lucky enough to go to a street festival that had henna tattoos. Such a beautiful design! I also went to an estate sale that had these wonderful vintage dream pets, including this whimiscal horse.
Sunday we had a family birthday party for Lowell. He wanted a curious george theme and I made these funny little monkey cupcakes. A large monkey cake is in store for tomorrow, it's in the oven now.
His favorite gift....a 300 ft. tape measure. That's my boy!Trying to get a little fall decorating and cleaning done in preparation for our special guests.
Here's to a great week!
