Mother's Day 2013

My Mother's Day week in review.

We squeezed in a bunch of activities mostly on Mother's day weekend but I did get an early "gift" from my man and I was taken to see one of my favorite musicians...Frank Black!
I am not sure why Frank is dressed like People of Walmart though... maybe he was just trying to fit in during his visit to the south.

On Friday evening we volunteered at the Rely for Life prime event.  Our booth, as Pumpkinbutt called out to the walkers on the track, was "you get to throw sharp pointy objects for only one dollar!".  We have a large wooden dart board with balloons attached to it, pop a balloon and win a prize, all money goes toward the fundraiser. Kids love it!
I got this cute paper retro pickle wrapper sack along with a huge pickle for 1 buck while at there....

On Saturday (after sleeping in of course) we headed down to the Flea Market.  In front of a nearby thrift was this bowling ball garden:

We didn't find too many treasures...a few small toys and a vintage Halloween record called Monster Mash from 1972.

We then went downtown to have lunch at a new outdoor dining area with "food truck" Airstream trailers. Cute!

Afterwards we headed over for a small arts
 festival, downtown as well, and saw this neat ice cream trolley. I wanted to snatch those ginormous plastic ice creams and run!

We then went home and played "Go to The Head of the Class" (circa 1970) that I scored at a thrift the day before.

On Sunday we all hung around the house for awhile and I got some super cool gifts; a vintage Star Wars Tauntaun and the new David Sedaris book.

We went to lunch at a Mexican Restaurant, my favorite cuisine. Afterwards, we went on an adventure to seek out wild blackberries in a field that once was home to a drive-in movie theater. At home, we toasted some angel food cake, added whipped cream and the berries for a yummy dessert.

Pumkinbutt also made me a book about me. The highlights of it is that I am very clean and smarter than a whole bunch of college kids!

Whew! A lot of good times!
I even left out a few other things we did, like spending hours in the Comic Book Shop which is piled to the ceiling with neat stuff and collectibles. Pumpkinbutt about lost his mind when the owner showed him his Action Comics stash from the 50's and 60's.

AWwww,happy Mothers Day !! I would LOVE to see that PB book!!! How cute!
So....I totally had a bowling ball garden in the backyard...when we lived in Indy ! My hubs would not let me move them (the weight) and I was too discouraged to start collecting from scratch !!!
Lately ,my lil'est and I have been playing a vintage Masterpiece(recently thrifted) game !The bonus is she learns about art

my house is cuter than yours said...

That it too cool you had your very own bowling ball garden!!! I haven't heard of the game Masterpiece...Will have to look into it!
Happy Belated Mother's Day to you as well!
