Well it was an exciting day here at Shiny Red Houses because not only did we have soul crushing humidity, we also had torrential downpours.
Luckily I was distracted from the dreariness by not one, but two itty bitty teeny tiny newborns! I am a La Leche League Leader and today I made a few home visits to new mothers who needed a little breastfeeding help.

Anyway, let's get to the junk shall we?
I found a few things, but this is the best thing I've found in ages. Check it out!
When I spotted the beautiful beat-up croquette set for 7.99 I felt like I was having a Country Living moment. You know where they interview the homeowner and she says, "I found this lovely set in my favorite junk store, it's become the key piece in my collection."
I also found this sweet little girls dress.
I think I'll use it as an attractive accent piece.
Speaking of attractive things, I found the second volume of the Popular Mechanics Home Handyman Encycolpedia. Know what picture totally made me snicker?
This one. "Secrets of Attractive Packages". Sounds dirty doesn't it? Hello? What? Oh, nevermind...
