well junkers….i’ve been on holiday at the beach for the past week. don’t i look pretty with my solid comfort garb on???? no…that’s not me. i’m much older and my skin would sag around that little black arm band thingy. i have a million pictures of our family trip to Galveston, Texas. lots of fun. lots of sun. lots of stress. ack. i did manage to slip away to a couple of thrift shops, but once again….i can’t manage my camera chips lately. don’t know where my pics are i took???? now my camera battery is dead again. ack…..i’ll get it together this week when arek goes back to school and ron goes back to work.
Galveston is a very old town/city. if you get a chance to make it there, the old homes are sooooooooooooo wonderful and iteresting. it’s worth it just for that!! i should have taken some photos of the old homes. so many were falling apart and still fabulous….gingerbread houses for sure. how inspiring.
for now….here are a bunch of family pictures. pics of arek having fun, me looking old and ron and zoey looking alike.
zoey hated the sand. she cried and fussed the entire time we spent on the beach. she loved the water, but hated that old sand and seaweed stuff. arek loved it. he pretended to play in quicksand and threw the seaweed stuff around like it was a hurricane…i guess in celebration of hurricane season??? he doesn’t understand the impact those storms have. he still thinks it’s cool. i felt sorry for the folks close to him on the beach. they were getting a dose of hurricane arek.
i did manage to snap a photo of the latest project i worked on before we split for the beach. i recovered a suitcase with some paper scraps and small embellishments. my mom sent me this cute green velvet bow and i found the perfect place for it!!
okay…not to stress you all out and gross you out….but welcome to texas!!! this place it nuts with critters and bugs. okay…what is this?????????????? it was on my screen when i returned back for vacation. it’s a male dobson (spell) fly and it’s the scariest bug ever. yikes!!!! he’s still out there…lurking…waiting for an opportunity to come in the house and make a craft. he touches my vintage lace and i’m calling the exterminator. yes….i’ve read he’s harmless, but those are the ones to look out for!!! he will get caught in my vintage tulle with those big giant feelers on the top of his head. he is outside waiting for a mate!!! i have all i can handle, dude. don’t look at me, buddy. unless you can help around the house and help watch the kids, you need to go hang on some other family’s screen. stop looking in my window, already. kids….hide the remote….he might go for the flatscreen!~!.
ACK…..HE IS SOOOO UGHLY. I HAVE CHILLS.
i will try to find pretty things to post tomorrow. i finally bought the book VINTAGE VAVOOM. what a great book!! i only wish it were bigger! more photos, please. i will try to take some photos of my favorite pages. until the next critter comes or a project gets finished…whichever comes first….keep on junkin!!
