amongst the current craziness. I've been working on collecting alphabet letters for a while now. Last Spring when I was decorating my sister's nursery I bought a book called Babyspace, and one little eighth page photo of an abc wall in the "Living Spaces" section just grabbed me and made the whole book worth the purchase. Last week I got overanxious about the long slow process of finding 26 different letters so I went onto etsy for the remainder of what I needed and (God, I love etsy) I was hooked up within 15 minutes! Okay, so here it is. The abc wall in our front room office.
I covered some with scrapbook papers. Some with transparencies. The Z is covered in a napkin. The F and T are brass stencils (etsy). The B N and W are old marquee letters. The P and Y are off our old Pacific Bay Realty office sign (sentimental). The Q is the real piece of art amongst it all. I got it on Kristine Mays' etsy site (of course!) but treat yourself and go look at the bigger pieces she makes with wire and has shared on her blog. WOW!!! Talk about talent. I have a funny story about the O. We were down in Monterey last week visiting my oldest daughter Erica and her boyfriend, Brian. I guess Brian likes globes because so far Erica has bought him three. We weren't in their house 2 hours when CRASH! the littlest one, up on the big screen tv, fell to the ground and broke clean in half! I said, "HEY! I need that!" Okay. Probably not funny to them, but secretly I'm glad it happened!
Here's my obligatory grandkids pic from Halloween. Yes, making them stand against that pale wall looks like a mug shot, and yes, without the hood up and not holding the laser sword Caleb looks more like he's in a bathrobe than a Jedi costume, but ya gotta admit; they're still awful cute! ;-) God love 'em. They're just kind of a jumble of teeth!
Okay. That's all for today. I'll be back tomorrow to remind you to go vote!
