Most everyone in North America atomatically knows what this means. But my daughter in the car today asked what did I love NY mean.
She didn't believe me when I said I love New York. Her instant response was why would it mean that. So of course it became a game what could it mean.Some of our suggestions are as follows:
I Love Naughty Yaks
I love No Yetis
I love Noodles Yo!
I love New Yoyos
I love New Yarn
I love Nervous Yodelers
Anyways she still doesn't really believe me that it stands for I love New York.
What can you come up with?

So munchkin and I went camping this past weekend with her Sparks troupe. We headed off to Carruther's Point in Kingston. She was thrilled with the whole concept and it was a good introduction to camping for a 6 year old. One of my responsibilities before we even headed out was a mess kit/ditty bag for each of us. So the following pics are of hers.

Ready to Eat
The green plastic dinnerware(extremely retro) is from a picnic basket I picked up one day while thrifting. It was wicker with everything for 4 people and a really good deal. We have been known to grab some food and go for impromptu picnics at one of the local parks. But now some of it has got to go camping.

Vintage Fabric Headbands

Some of the vintage fabric headbands that I have created lately. They are made so you can wear them fully extended as in these pictures or hand pleat them before putting them on for a variety of looks. A pleated option seen in the following example.
