Pretty Little Blogs

I actually browsed around cyberspace the other day for a few minutes. Harrison had a friend coming over for the afternoon and I was preparing to do a craft with them.

 We made I-spy bottles and as I dug around all the corners of my house for little items to put in the bottle, it got me thinking of other miniatures that I have and then about that holidays and Christmas miniatures that I have tucked away and finally, about a website that I stumbled across so long ago - last year sometime.

After some research and a few other fun blogs later, I found the old website, the NEW website and the blog.

Needless to say, I'm thrilled to find Amanda again, but that's not the best part, she is having a giveaway at her blog Every Little Thing and for my friends out there who like baking - this is right up your alley! There is still time to go enter before this evening. Or just go take a peek at Amanda's wonderful cake toppers and other sweet goodies at Bake it Pretty.

Vintage and miniatures a perfect combination.

As for the boys and their I-spy bottles, here are some of the things that they put in their bottles then we filled them with birdseed - with room to spare for shaking and searching and sealed them.

I was inspired by a bottle at my Aunt's house that Harrison loved when he was 20 months old. She didn't have a list attached, you just had to look and find. This is a good thing to have in the car on a road trip, which we will be taking on Thursday. Although I have some vintage miniature bowling pins, we found these at the Dollar Tree Store along with extra dice. Score! I also have a stash of old Barbie accessories so in went a pair of blue 70's style Barbie shoes!

Have a great day!

Do Widzenia!

That's a great idea. I've seen the bags, but not the bottles.
