Guess what day it is!
We're home again, and it's great to be back. What a long time we were away! I knew for sure that we were back when Tsia and I were putting our bags away in storage (which is our building's basement), and Tsia said to me, casually, "Mama, I saw squirrel!"
"Here?" I asked.
"Yes. Over there."
Now, I know we don't have squirrels in our basement. I also have a fairly good idea what might resemble a squirrel to a toddler while also residing in a storage area, and it doesn't make me happy.
Anyway, I haven't shown you any of the treasures Todd brought back from Tokyo yet. Poor guy; he had a rough time of the shopping there, and it took heroic effort to find what I wanted. In fact, he couldn't find Cotton Time anywhere, and his crafting colleague wasn't familiar with the magazine either.
But he certainly found a couple of terrific books for me, and some great fabric as well! This is my favorite of the books. Actually, it's a magazine. It's all children's clothing, and I love the styling because it's so DIY-influenced. The looks that are presented are all about a handmade or thrifted look, and the various items are assembled in such unusual ways. I wouldn't mind dressing this way myself!
In other news, yesterday Tsia turned 2 1/2, and today is my two-year blogging anniversary! Hurray!
In honor of the events, we're working hard to potty train one of us. Now that we're home and staying in one place for a while, I hope we'll find success soon.
