            The All Saints Store blows my mind.


 With these clothes on, no one could accuse Mia of not rocking.





The front window of All Saints Store in Chicago.

There are 800 vintage sewing machines,an All Saints Signature design,in the front and through out the store.
















                                                All Saints is pricey,but fun!!!

                         Mia the young traveler


Mia was extremely happy when the "super cute" Fedex guy arrived this morning with her "Trunki."
























Trunki is a small child's carry on luggage that can double as a scooter or temporary seat.
The coolest part of about the Trunki is that initially we would need to import them from Europe at a retail price of around $90 Ouch!Trunki now has a home in US at the much more pleasing price.I get my for $21 on the internet.Mia's Trunki arrived just in time because we were leaving for Vegas tonight for Felipe's soccer tournament (Mia's brother)So I'm saying goodbye to tears and sore feet.There can't be a more fun way for Mia to get through the airport than riding on her own luggage.

coffee filter wreath 



Lovely




start with some coffee filters and basic supplies.  i used about 230 filters.  i made my life easier by seperating batches of them at one time to speed up the process.  (btw, that's about $3 worth of filters)






there was a bit of trial and error and experimentation on my part.  i found that by taking 3 filters at one time and folding them in half twice, so as to create a triangle, gave a nice fluffy amount to work with...





i won't lie....it took about an hour and a half....but i just sat in front of the tv and did it....not too bad...









and this is what you get....fill in any empty spaces or wierd gaps if needed with single filters




and look what you get!  pretty impressive for coffee filters!  i think the wreath form was about $4 or $5, so all in all it cost me about $8 and an hour an a half of my time!


worth it, i think!











The idea is from Beach house in the city.
