Fabulous Find Friday

Earlier this week I was showing Layla an epic find I got at Target, and she encouraged me to share it for "Fabulous Find Friday" hosted by Fun in Room 4B.

I was at Target this week and I found a KEY item that I will be using as a prop when I take the kid's photo on the  first day of school.  It is a JUMBO dry erase board shaped in the sticker: "Hello, my name is..."  I want to have the kids write their name on it, and hold it for a picture!

Next, here are two small pails that I want to decorate for pencils that are sharpened and broken:  Red means stop its broken, and green means go- ready to use!

At Michael's, I purchased these two large clothes pins!  I am obsessed with oversized things apparently.... I want to hang my standards from them...I will post that soon! :)
(I like to hold things in pictures, so you can see the size of object!)

Next, I bought this little letter from Anthropologie tonight...this one will be for the home. ;)  

And last, but my favorite, is my dad shopping with me in Crate & Barrel for the first time.  He is not a shopper, but he couldn't stop playing with all of the gadgets.  It was cracking me up!

Have a fun weekend! :)

  6. I am hoping to find the Name tag at my Target tomorrow... it would be fun to take both a first AND last day picture with their own handwriting on it!

  7. I found a quote not that long ago that I love! Your last picture made me remember it! "It is admirable for a man to take his son fishing, but there is a special place in Heaven for the father who takes his daughter shopping."

  8. Love that you went shopping with your dad. The M is pretty darn cute!
