Things to love. . .

I love this sign in the local Whole Foods parking garage. It smacks you in the face when you get out of your car and reminds you to get those bags lurking in your trunk. . .

I love this bag I got in the mail today from Bagette Aunt Frances. . .

She made it from fabric samples, which we have done too. They make great, colorful, funky bags. They take more work, but the results are wonderful. Usually you can get old fabric samples for free from fabric stores or home decorators. When they are old/out of season, they get thrown away. What better use, than to make cool bags from them? Of course, I have lots of bags. But, I treasure the ones that 88 year old Aunt Frances makes me. You can see why!

I also have to share this story that happened while Aunt Frances was visiting last spring. . .

This is how is went while giving Little Girl her bath:

Little Girl: "Mom, what is a vice president?"

Mom: "Well, it is a person that is second in command that can take over the presidency in case something happens to the president. They also help the president a good deal."

Little Girl: "Oh." Pauses while thinking then says, "Don't you think it would be cool for you to have a vice mom?"

Mom: "YES! I would love to have a vice mom, that is a great idea!"

Little Girl: "Maybe Aunt Frances could be your vice mom."

Mom: "Well, I'm not sure if that would work out, but she would be a fabulous Vice Mom!"

Have a good weekend. Teresa
