Scenes From the Weekend

This weekend was a busy one. I have been wanting to go First Friday shopping in the West Bottom section of Kansas City for quite awhile and finally made it happen. I rolled out of bed early, got the kids to school and made the 30 minute trip downtown.

I arrived about 9:30 AM and the old buildings were already jam-packed full of ladies with the same idea.     I really enjoyed it and found some great things for my house.  All the places I visited were full of vintage items or homemade, one of a kind, treasures.

I went to Bella Patina, Good JuJu and Rustic Vintage Rose.   There were several other stores I wanted to see, but I only had about 3 hours, so it will have to wait until next month.

 

The Jack O Lanterns were made out of old gasoline cans. Aren't they cute?!

Love the lettering on these home-made signs.  I bought the heart sign for a project I’ve been thinking about….

After a few hours of shopping, I came home, got us packed for the weekend ahead and headed out to the Varsity football game.  We were leaving at 6:30 AM Saturday, to make it to the Pitt State Homecoming Parade to walk with my Dad.  His election is coming up next month.

Although the game didn’t end in our favor, we had a great time and saw many friends and family at Homecoming.

Awesome weekend that went by to quick, as usual!  Have a great week everyone!
