Spring Break (in Instagram)

One whole week off.

Between lunch dates and sleeping past 6:00 am, it's been a good week.

I welcomed spring break with fun mail.........

Some thrifting did occur..........

The booth got freshened up and rearranged........

It was finally warm enough to spray paint..........

I baked a new-to-me cake.........

And tried to decide where to hang these babies........

But then I remembered that I'm crazy.  The whole "must be perfectly symmetrical" thing.

It's an issue.

And that hanging them alone would only end badly.

I mean someone has to hold them while I'm standing at the foot of my bed eyeballing how high they should go.  How many inches they should be from the curtains.  Their distance from the nightstands.

    1. Thanks! It's pretty darn a carry-on type bag!

  2. I HATE things aren't symetrical! In someone else's space it always looks cute. t mine, I just see clutter. Also, that bag! I have to have it! Why can't I learn the art of thrifting, a/k/a know where to go!

  3. i love that purse!!! yeah for spring break!! we still have another week of school until ours!

  4. looks like an awesome spring break!!! LOVE your booth - it looks so great!

  5. those bunnies are precious! I have a bag almost exactly like that! your booth is so cute

  6. Sounds like you had a great week! I have the whole hyper symmetrical thing too, but mine has to be in threes so that one can be in the middle. I feel like freaking Rainman some days. : )

  7. Mmmm..that cake looks delicious! glad you've had a great week...perfect weather for Spring Break!

  8. Your booth looks so cool! And wow, that cake! Thanks for making me hungry, haha! ;)

  10. Ok, I'm anti people who have spring break. I should have been a teacher. ;-) (And yes, I do know you guys work hard, I'm not meaning it in that way)

  11. I love these insights into your life. They always leave me smiling. Your booth is adorable. I am hoping one day our flea marketing paths will cross. Though, unlike you, I don't sell, I just buy :)

  12. Glad you got so much accomplished this week! Enjoy your last 2 days of break!


  13. So jealous that you get spring break!

    You should share some spray painting tips because I'm a little challenged in that area.

    I love the look of the shop! and the windows.

    What kind of cake is that?

  14. ooh, love the color of your bag! and now i need to go find something sweet to eat after seeing your cake...he, he!


  15. That bag was thrifted?!? So fantastic! And I can totally appreciate your symmetrical-ness. I get hung up on the same issues (ha! no pun intended!). Waiting till someone gets home to help is difficult.

    1. HA! Good! Someone who gets my issue!!!!!!!!!! And yes.........that bag was $1.50!!!!!!!

  16. Hey Danavee,
