Welcome Back...

To school, that is.
Today was the first day of school for most of the kids in the North East. I know...we start late. But think of us when we are still in school at the end of June:)
The weather couldn't have been better for the back to school mood. Cool 70's during the day and 50's at night. Great for sleeping!

Jake started middle school today. Sometimes I wonder if Jake is really my son. He went from a school with about 400 kids to a school of about 2,000 and didn't flinch. I would have been up all night, possibly vomiting. I'm so glad he didn't inherit my neurotic gene.

I don't think Alex is so lucky.

He did great but a few tears were shed (not mine this time) when the bus pulled up. But his first words when he hopped off of the bus were, "I loved it!" so I think tomorrow will be perfect.

By the way, he thinks his sneakers are totally cool:)

My fabulous photographer/Sister took some photos of my latest pieces for the show.

Here they are...

I just love this little truck. It came from the same bag of loot the blocks I used for the houses came out of. I have a train I am working on now...so cute!

This piece is a vintage wood box that I bought at the Goodwill store.

Don't forget about my shop update tomorrow night!
See details below:)
