Before we left for vacation I finished a couple of projects, and got a little something in the mail I haven't shared with you yet.
The family flew to North Carolina and met my parents and sister's family at the beach. I made Jaxon a little carry-on pillow for the airplane.
He loved carrying it (kept calling it his purse) but he didn't lay on it. When he did sleep he used my lap as a pillow instead.
And I made this pleated purse for me. The photos don't do it justice, I just threw it on the table and snapped away. Not a good plan.
And the purse fairy has been smiling on me! I won a giveaway at Michelle's blog and this found its way to me:
Thanks, Michelle, I really *love* it. The hobo silhouette is great! This is going into my fall rotation, it will be great for school days!
And finally, a quick shot of one of our vacation activities: riding the ferry to Fort Fisher. Jaxon loved the ferry, and the aquarium, but, wow, was it a hot day. I enjoyed the fort, they have a really knowledgeable group of docents, and we had an excellent meal at the Old Pier House Restaurant at Kure Beach.
