Pardon me for the Travel Blog interruption.....



I need to interrupt this wonderful and entertaining travel blog of Myrtle Beach to do a quick post on what I bought at Smile today.

$1 Wilton tool box. I guess it's for cake making supplies but I'm going to make it into a tool box. Because I can never find anything on DH's workbench, I started my own tool box for around the house. Currently I'm just using a tote bag to contain everything and stuff sinks to the bottom. There is some sort of spash of paint or something on the front, but I know I can clean it up.

$4.50 (a little high but hey, my son is worth it) - a big new package of surfer dudes wall stickers/decorations. Original price from Bed, Bath & Beyond was $29.99 Seeing that my son just turned 9, I know in about 6 or 7 years, I'll have to begin thinking that he is starting to grow up so I'll have to consider taking down his Toy Story wall decorations and doing something different. So I will put this away until then.

.50 each - two plastic mini crates (you know, since I love storage)

.25 each - two educational booklets - Know Your USA (learn facts about your state and all 47 other states) and the other is a Star Wars book about space.

I love your blog!
I also have a tool kit for the house as I can't find anything on the workbench. I used a wonderful wicker basket with handles that I found for $0.25 at a yardsale. It looks quite cute and I can leave it laying around and it doesn't look out of place.

Note to Kathleen - well of course I know there are 50 states!!!! I was just stating what the cover on the book said.
