Amy (Middle) and her BFFLE (best friend for like EVER!) Katie recently started the Green Girls Club. They are taking on global warming one small community project at a time. I'm so proud of them as they have already made a positive impact in our neighborhood playground, painting the picnic benches and cleaning the grounds.
And here they are at the nursing home where they brought gifts to the residents that they made using recycled toilet paper and paper towel rolls.
They are such cutie-pies!
I decided to convert part of our basement space into a Clubhouse for them so they would have a fun and inspirational place to create. It's been about six months of collecting vintage and kid-friendly stuff at yard sales, flea markets, and Etsy, and I think the GG's would agree that it's a pretty darn fantastic clubhouse.
Come on in!
The paper lanterns were a steal at Pier 1 last Summer. I'm gonna get more this year to decorate my booth at the Barn.
I found so many wonderful things on Etsy and kind of went a little crazy for Christmas.
The banner was made by one of my sponsors and very dear friend, Kristina of Emily Anne's Kloset.
She works with the best fabrics I've ever seen and I'm kind of addicted to banners now.
Would you believe I got these boxes from Dollar General? They weren't actually a dollar, but still a spankin' good deal.
Metal containers from IKEA - why oh why didn't I get more!?! They were only 79 cents!!
The french memo board was an Etsy purchase.
This sweet collage picture is from The Vintage Sisters, who sell incredible goodies at the booth across from me and Denise. I can't tell you how many things I've bought from them since I started selling there.
The vintage thermoses were purchased on Ebay. The one on the left is a Little Kiddles thermos and I had to have it because that's why my parents used to call me when I was a child.
This little stand is one of my favorite things in the Clubhouse. It is actually an old telephone stand from the Fifties and it was used to hold the telephone on top and phone books on the bottom. I found it on Craig and knew it would be perfect for this space. I spray painted it bright yellow and it now holds Amy's photo albums and her old bible.
Off to the back left is what is left of poor Mr. Bliss' man cave...
I just had to show you this sweet little door mat that I got at the same Dollar General as the boxes. It was $6! Too cute and too cheap not to buy.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious day!
