This past weekend we went to Harley Farms in Pescadero with Lucy and Pop Pop.
There were baby goats…
piles of them…
PILES of them!
A short walk down a grassy path lead to a shop that sold soaps, lotions, gardening tools…
Pop Pop bought Lucy some paint made from goat’s milk (who knew!?).
Then it was time to talk to some goats again…
The water closet is that way…
Next we went inside to the cheese shop next to the dairy and tasted LOTS of goat cheese. It was delicious…
Upstairs was an amazing room that had Simon and Garfunkel blaring…
And a view that overlooked the farm and garden…
On our way out we said goodbye to the goats one more time. Those eyelashes!
Such a perfect day. Thanks Pop Pop!!
Are you aware we are in the midst of a major shoe trend? Fancy tips!
Here’s my twist for little girls, sprinkle-tipped shoes.
- I started with cheap white canvas shoes. If this project turned out to be a disaster I didn’t want it to be on a $50 pair of Converse (which I plan to do in pink soon!).
- I covered all the parts of the shoe I didn’t want to decorate with painter’s tape and protected the rest with sandwich bags (since I plan on using spray sealer later I don’t want any of the shoe to be exposed).
- Next I mixed up several colors of Martha Stewart’s micro-beads until they looked like cupcake sprinkles.
- I covered the exposed part of the shoes with Martha Stewart’s glitter glue (meh, it’s pretty much identical to Elmer’s Glue, but I did appreciate the applicator brush).
- Then sprinkled the beads all over… and waited 30 minutes.
- Next I sprayed tacky spray to get all the nooks and crannies and to get one last final layer of beads.
- I sprinkled beads all over again and waited an hour.
- Once everything seemed dry, I sprayed it one last time with a Mod Podge sealer.
- I waited another hour, removed the tape and…
Pretty dang cute if I do say so myself! I think I might just have to do this to a pair of flats for your truly…
Last weekend we had sushi with friends and I was pretty impressed with the way they cut the little girls oranges for their bento boxes.
So I gave it a try!
What I did:
1. Cut the orange in half
2. Cut the bottom 1/4 off one of the halves
3. Remove the inside of each half with a sharp knife, leaving the peels intact – creating one “orange cup” and discarding the other
4. Quarter the parts you removed
5. Insert the small 1/4 piece into the bottom of the orange cup
6. Reassemble the orange slices and put them all inside the cup
Booya! Not bad for a first attempt, eh?
