Vintage Toys, Super Heros and Birthdays!

So many things have happened since we chatted last, I thought it best to do this post in random bullet points.

1) Since today is my Birthday I thought I would make myself into a super hero. The video is true when it comes to the sale shopping stuff.

2) My copy of Handmade Nation finally came in the mail and I am so excited I can hardly stand it! I’ll blog more about it later.

3) Speaking of books, I just noticed that The Naughty Secretary Club is the 40th most sold book in jewelry on Amazon today and I am up to 20 5 star reviews. Whoo-hoo!

4) I’m so excited that Apartment Therapy is coming to shoot my house for their blog later this month that I have been furiously decorating. I actually took the sheets and towels off the windows in my bedroom and hung curtains. Mom and I made a matching headboard. Please excuse my un-made bed, the picture had Ella in it (who is up to 105 pounds now) so I had to include it. On another wall in the bedroom I started to hang some pictures and have more prints on the way from Etsy.

5) I never gave you a recap of the other days at the Round Top flea market. In a nut shell they were hot, but fun. As if we didn’t get enough mom, Hope and I hit the Austin antique malls and I doubled my collection of vintage Fisher Price toys in an afternoon.

6) Man I can’t wait to go have Indian Food with my friends tonight for my birthday celebration.

7) I posted an interview with Nicole Vasbinder of Queen Puff Puff on Craft Gossip.

8) In the last few days I have added 4 pages of new jewelry to Naughty Secretary Club and there is more coming as soon as I can muster up some witty descriptions.

9) My friend Kathryn just called and she and her brand spankin’ new little girl Evan are coming over. I better take a shower! Here we are earlier this summer when she was 9 months and I was 3 months. Oh ya did I tell you I’m knocked up? That’s the reason I have not been blogging much lately 🙂

    Happy birthday and congratulations! That’s so awesome! You’ll have the best-accessorized child ever.

    I have the same Fisher Price record player and little TV thing – my mom brought them down for me after I had my baby a few months ago, it’s amazing how much I love playing with them all over again as an adult.

    Going to have to call my mum up and get her to find my old fisher price record player now. Not as good condition as yours though- think I coloured it in, cos you could make really cool spirals on the turntable…

    Funny thing is …I think we might have similar free spirit temperaments,and you are not going to believe how OK you are going to be with SOOOO much less me-time.
    I am always thrilled when artist families have babes. More amazing thinking to add to our world!
    I am very happy for you!

    Happy Birthday!
    I LOVE your FP collection of toys. There are vivid memories bouncing around in my head of playing with many of those toys. How fun.

    I also guessed you were “with child” after that other post. Congratulations, all the best, etc. to you and your hubby!!

    Congratulations! I’m knocked up too… three months along.

    And the Apartment Therapy thing is awesome! When they came to shoot my house, I was surprised at all the lights and equipment that was brought in – it was a much bigger production than I thought.

    Congrats on everything!

    Although I’m kinda freaking when I read

    vintage Fisher Price toys.

    Because that means that those little choking hazards (I had the house) are now vintage. And as we all know, vintage is a nice word for antique=you are really old.
