Thought for Thursday

Celebrate what you want to see more of.
Thomas J. Peters

The weekend is almost upon us and aside from two days of play, we're celebrating a couple of other things at our place. The 6yr old button lost his first tooth today and is absolutely ecstatic and more than happy to pose for photos.

On Saturday he is playing his first, official, soccer game and he's equally excited about that. We may have a problem getting the boots and shin pads off the small sister whose fashion sense is taking quite an alarming turn.

Cute as Buttons won't be at The Handmade Expo on Saturday because I will be cheering for the soccer players but you should definitely pop along and have a bit of a look at the many lovely things on display. There are lots of new things there as well as many of the old familiar stalls. It's important to support and attend these great local markets - celebrate them! That way they'll know we want them to keep coming back.

While I am celebrating things I like, welcome to lots of lovely, new, blog followers. It's nice to know I'm talking to someone! Thank you to Kathy from Sweet Simplicitee for your Sunshine Award. I'm as proud as the toothless one!


  1. Congratulations Toothless! So pleased he didn't swallow it so you didn't have to deal with the trauma involved in writing long and drawn out letters of explanation to the tooth fairy. Sigh.

    Hope you Buttons are back on the healthy track...

  2. Thanks Lisa, we will miss you haeps but have fun being a soccer mum !

  3. Enjoy being a soccor mum! And isn't it exciting when they lose their first tooth!

  4. How exciting!!! We are hopefully starting soccer for Aphid # 1 in May!

    Good luck!!

  5. Cute photos. Aren't litte sisters just brilliant!

  6. Gotta love a little sister...I'm one...can you tell? Enjoy soccer season!

  7. I'm new to this blogging world, and it's so neat to stumble upon a new page, everyone has such a neat little story to tell!

    Cute photos, I love the photo of the little one borrowing the shin guards, too cute!

    I love all of your little button items and I'm headed over to your Etsy shop to take a look! You're so talented and crafty!

    Thanks for sharing! :)
