Random And Wandering Thoughts

1. Where does one find elbow-length gloves for a 3 year-old? Bridget has the Cinderella costume and the crown, but we still need gloves, heels, and a necklace. (Stupid JoAnn's wouldn't sell me a little bit of black velvet ribbon. I would have had to buy the whole thing.)

2. While Brian was hunting last weekend Bridget and I did the Santa Claus Lane Shop Hop. We visited 16 fabric/quilting stores from Payson to Roy over the course of 4 days. I have not been contacted about the prizes, which means I didn't win anything. Again. Someone stop me from doing it again next year.

3. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is more about the seven dwarfs - they get more air time, anyway. And Cinderella is about Gus and Jack. That's right, the mice. I think they have more lines than Cinderella. Yesterday I saw Bridget's Cinderella doll's glass slipper (only one) on one of the stairs. I wonder if Bridget put it there...

4. A few of you have asked about the boutique - it was a very cold day and we barely found the location, so not great. However, in the last week we've had a lot of sales in our shop. Enough sales to make me feel justified (and since I was armed with my 20% off coupon from the shop hop, even more justified) in buying more fabric. MY PRECIOUS.

5. It's too cold outside to wear flip flops anymore, and yet I am.

6. Sometimes I let Bridget play dress up in her Halloween costume. I know it's tempting fate, but when she and Leah were playing the other day and wearing their princess outfits it was too adorable to resist. Leah ran and hopped and chanted, "PRINCESS! PRINCESS!" Then she collapsed next to the fence.

Buy Costumes.com can provide all your princess needs. Of course you have to pay shipping, but some things are worth it, like princess gloves and jewelery.

Love the costumes by the way. Enjoy the princess stage while you can, they do eventually grow out of it. Sad.

Try Partyland over by Wingers. I am sure they have all of what you will need. There are many, many princesses around here...

JoAnn's has ribbon that you have to buy the whole roll, but they also have some you can buy by the yard. Didn't they have any black velvet by the yard? You could check at Nuttall's and Walmart too.
Cute princesses.:)

I would also try the dollar stores for shoes and other accessories. I see them in the birthday party area often. One of these days I'm going to remember all I want to say the first time so I don't have to make more than one comment.
